Emily Atack’s ex-boyfriend Jack Vacher has backed the star to be crowned the winner of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Jack said: “I’m sure she’ll do great.

“I’ve moved on and everything.”

Emily – who has reportedly had high profile relationships with Dougie Poynter and Harry Styles in the past – previously opened up to her campmate, Noel Edmonds, about her heartbreak and confessed she is doing “soul-searching” whilst she’s in the jungle.

She said: “I’m soul-searching. I had a difficult start to the year. I had a break-up after being with someone five years.
