Emily Atack has made it known that she has a little crush on Jamie Redknapp after making the confession during the I’m A Celebrity jungle.
After the actress begged campmate Harry Redknapp to set her up with his footballer son, Jamie has insisted Emily is a “very nice girl” but failed to confirm if he’d date her.
But now, The Inbetweeners actress Emily has revealed she’s taken the next step to try and make Jamie her fella but apologised to him for “ruining his life”.
Speaking to Rob Howard on Friday morning’s Capital FM Breakfast show, Rob said: “So we wanted to ask, following up from the jungle, obviously you are a big Jamie Redknapp fan?”
Emily replied: “Oh god,” to which Rob added: “Has there been any progress with that? Pretend the whole of London – and probably Jamie himself – isn’t listening.”
Emily said: “No! I feel so sorry for Jamie – I’ve ruined his life! Poor thing, I’m not even going out with him yet and I’ve already ruined his life.”
Rob cut in: “The key word there being ‘yet’…” to which Emily said: “Oh no. I said that on Loose Women accidentally the other day as well. No, no progress.”
Emily then revealed she has followed Jamie on Instagram, but she’s had “no joy back”.
Rob asked her: “Any sort of DMs and sliding?” to which Emily replied: “No! I’ve followed him on Instagram but no joy back.”
Rob then announced: “No follow back! Jamie, mate, if you’re listening now, please – make Emily Atack’s Christmas wish come true and follow her back.”
Cringing, Emily said: “Oh yeah, that won’t ruin his Christmas, with the bombarding mad people.
“Oh god, poor thing. I feel so sorry for him, Jamie, I’m very sorry.”
Rob added: “Again this is another sort of champagne problem if you’ve got Emily Atack harassing you – it’s not the worst thing in the world.”

It comes after former football manager Harry said he thought Emily didn’t have a “chance” with Jamie because of the way she looked in the jungle – before adding that she “scrubbed up” well after leaving.
He then had a change of heart after seeing Emily all glammed up during the I’m A Celebrity – Coming Out show.
After Emily asked Harry if he thinks Jamie will go out with her now, Harry replied: “I don’t think he could pull you, I’ll be honest with you!”
Earlier this month, Jamie was asked about Emily during an interview on talkSPORT radio.
Jamie was asked if it was more likely that Liverpool would win the Champion’s League or if he would take Emily on a date.
Jamie, 45, coyly replied: “Leave it out! She’s a very nice girl, isn’t she? Let’s leave it at that.”
