"I know I like singing songs, but Eamonn doesn't let me sing songs," as her campmates burst into laughter.

Putting on an Irish accent to imitate Eamonn, Emily added: "Ruth shut your mouth you dirty cow."

After a clip emerged on Twitter showing Emily doing the impressions, a fan tweeted Eamonn: "She was great... thought Ruth had popped in."

Ruth, 'Do I really speak like that?' Me, 'Yes!'.

Eamonn quickly replied: "Oh, how I would love to see @RuthieeL really dropping in!"

Actress Kate Robbins then tweeted: "Haha! Emily's @RuthieeL made me die #I'mACeleb."

Eamonn responded: "Hilarious!!!!! As my Mother says about Emily, 'She's a great wee Girl' Praise indeed believe me Kate."

Eamonn then appeared to share the conversation he and Ruth, 57, had while watching Emily on the show.

He tweeted: "Ruth, 'Do I really speak like that?' Me, 'Yes!'"

Emily also did an impression of Dancing On Ice star Gemma Collins while her campmate former EastEnders actress Rita Simons imitated Loose Women's Denise Van Outen.
