Emily, who is due set to head out on her one-woman comedy show in April next year, is yet to comment on if she will be stepping in as Team Captain as she was too busy boozily celebrating her birthday. Extra Camp stars Scarlett Moffatt and Joel Dommett joined Emily in downing shots as she celebrated turning 29.

Despite their wild night out, Emily who revealed she was body-shamed by a stranger in a restaurant on her return from the jungle, appeared to be coping well with her hangover the following day tweeting: “Thank you all for my birthday messages yesterday! I had a lovely time. Cake for breakfast. X”
