Emily Atack Says She's Actually Already Met Jamie Redknapp

I'm A Celebrity runner-up Emily Atack has just confessed that she had already met Jamie Redknapp before starring in the jungle.

Emily appeared on I'm A Celeb with Jamie's dad, Harry Redknapp, and the Inbetweeners actress made it clear she wanted the former professional footballer to call her on several occasions.

But appearing on Monday's Loose Women, the actress actually revealed that they have already met a few years ago because he is a big Inbetweeners fan.

Andrea McLean and her fellow panellists quizzed Emily over Jamie, asking the question that has been on everyone's lips.

Cutting straight to the chase, Gloria Hunniford asked: "Has Jamie called you yet?"

"Oh, poor Jamie!" Emily exclaimed, before going on to add: "I'm not even going out with him yet and I've already ruined his life."

As the panellists pointed out her use of the word 'yet', Emily blushed and hid behind her hands.

Andrea then asked her again, saying: "Have you ever met him?"

"I met him once," announced Emily, before divulging: "He actually asked me for a photo a few years ago because he's a big Inbetweeners fan."

The actress then quipped: "We will see," before insisting that she was "single and happy".

Emily also discussed her Christmas plans with them panel, revealing she will be spending the day "eating, drinking and dancing very badly" at home.

And she couldn't resist reigniting the rumours again, cheekily adding: "I'll be with my family. Jamie if you want to come over..."

Emily also discussed her new body confidence after appearing in the jungle, revealing that she is now deleting photo editing apps on her phone to help her embrace her natural beauty.

She explained: "I'm deleting all my editing apps. You know you an edit your pictures until you're blue in the face.

"I used to slim them down and airbrush. It was so bad to the point you slim it down but you get rumbled as the wall is bent. I'm not doing that anymore."

Emily, who lost half a stone in the jungle, also discussed a shocking incident after she was approached by a stranger who told her "starvation suits you" while eating a burger in a restaurant.

She recalled: "I had a burger in my hand, he came up trying to be funny, he said, 'No put it down, starvation suits you'.

"He needs to go home and check out what being funny is."

Loose Women continues on ITV on weekdays at 12.30pm.
