Jamie Redknapp breaks silence on whether he would date Emily Atack

He thinks she's "very nice"

| Updated:

I’m A Celebrity winner Harry Redknapp may have shut down talk of former campmate Emily Atack dating his son Jamie, but the footballer hasn’t exactly ruled out a date with the actress.

During an interview on talkSPORT radio on Tuesday morning, 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.”

It comes after runner-up Emily, 28, and Jamie chatted on the phone after the I’m A Celebrity final.

When the former Tottenham footballer phoned in to Extra Camp to congratulate his dad on his win, Emily yelled: “Hi Jamie!”

Harry, 71, then said: “Keep away from Emily, Jamie. She’d be too much for you.”

Jamie cheekily replied: “Yeah, I reckon she is. Do you know what Tinder is dad? Emily, you need to tell him what Tinder is.”

Football manager Harry later raised eyebrows when he 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.

The I’m A Celeb winner made the cheeky comment while being interviewed on Good Morning Britain.

The football manager told Piers Morgan and Kate Garraway: “I’ll be honest – when I saw her in the jungle I thought no chance but I’ve seen her today when she scrubbed up and she looks alright.

“She looks good but when I saw her in the jungle I thought ‘no, you ain’t got a prayer’. Today she looked fantastic. I went ‘who are you’. She went ‘I was in the jungle with you’ and I went ‘I haven’t seen you before!’.”

The Inbetweeners actress jokingly told Jamie to “call her” when she was in the Bush Telegraph, following a conversation with Harry about dating his son.

Dad-of-two Jamie split from ex-wife Louise Redknapp last year, and he has since been linked to model Julia Rostein Roitfeld.
