Emily Atack let slip that she could soon be dating Jamie Redknapp on Loose Women today.
The Inbetweeners actress was quizzed about a potential romance after she had jokingly urged the former footballer to “call” her while she was on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
“Poor Jamie, I’m not even going out with him yet and I’ve already ruined his life,” she said when Andrea McLean raised the topic.
“You said yet!” the Loose Women host quickly pointed out.
She then asked Emily, “Have you even met him?”
Emily also said she had crossed paths with Jamie a number of years ago – and he approached HER for a picture!
The 28-year-old revealed: “I met him once as he asked me for a picture a few years ago as he’s an Inbetweeners fan.”
She joked that the 45-year-old – who separated from his wife Louise in 2017 – should call her if he wants to join her and her family for Christmas dinner – an invitation her mum Kate Robbins has already extended – as long as he’s willing to pay for his food!
Jokes aside, Emily said at the moment she is “single and happy”, adding that her time in the jungle has been a huge boost to her self-esteem.
She said being voted the runner-up to Jamie’s dad Harry, 71, made her feel people have accepted her for who she is.
As a result, she has vowed to never manipulate pictures she posts on social media in the future to appear prettier and slimmer.
She said: “I have decided I am deleting all my editing apps. I used to use them till I was blue in the face to airbrush pictures and slim them down. It was so bad as I’d get completely rumbled as the wall behind me was bent because it slims the whole picture down. So I am not doing that anymore.”

She said it felt amazing to be “out of the world for a bit” and away from the stresses of everyday life.
She urged the Loose Women to try getting away from it all one day if they can – before making one last plea for Jamie to give her a call for a date!
