I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! bosses are reportedly keen on a romance between Emily Atack and Nick Knowles.
It’s said that producers have noticed a bit of a spark between the 28-year-old actress and DIY SOS star Nick, 56, and they’re hoping it can develop into something during their time in the jungle.
An insider told The Sun: “Producers think Nick and Emily getting together would make good telly. Nick has a type and Emily fits the bill. And she hasn’t minded a famous boyfriend in the past. Everyone is watching closely and hoping for a proper spark.
“They’ve had a couple of moments on screen that producers thought was a good sign. They’re seeing how things develop.”
ED! has contacted representatives for I’m A Celebrity for comment.
On last night’s episode, Emily spoke affectionately about Nick in the Bush Telegraph.
After he gave up his place at the camp’s banquet, he tried to make himself a bean burger out of their measly rations and Emily said it nearly made her “cry” because she felt so sorry for him!

The dad-of-four has previously dated Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten, 34, and 31-year-old model Pasca Craymer, while his ex-wife Jessica Moor was 25 years younger than him.
Meanwhile, The Inbetweeners star Emily hasn’ shied away from high profile relationships, having been with pop superstars Dougie Poynter, 30, and Harry Styles, 24, in the past.
Emily also admitted before she went to Australia for the ITV reality show that she was open to the idea of finding romance in the jungle.
She said: “I am single at the moment. And never say never [to finding a romance in the camp].
She continued: “We are in a situation where we are all not going to smell our best, nor look our best and I can’t really imagine it happening but hey, who knows?! It’s a bit of fun!”
Could there be a jungle romance between these two?
