EMILY Atack has hit the headlines after it was revealed that she has been on secret dates with England midfielder Jack Grealish.
The telly star, who came second in 2018's I'm a Celebrity, already has a history of famous flings that reportedly includes One Direction star Harry Styles and comedian Seann Walsh. Here's everything you need to know.
Who has Emily Atack dated?
Emily was reportedly dating ex-Big Brother hunk Ziggy Lichman for a few months after meeting through mutual friends in September, 2018.
"Emily is far from single. It’s probably the worst kept secret around where they live – they’re always together," a source told the Mirror.
“They have loads of mutual friends and met a few times over the years but there has always been a lot of chemistry between them.
“When they met this summer they realised how much they liked each other and started dating.”
It’s reported that Ziggy, a former member of the boy band Northern Line, even threw his girlfriend an I’m A Celebrity themed party before she left, at his bar The Shop in Kensal Rise.
But, a spokesman for the Inbetweeners star at the time said: "Emily is categorically not in a relationship with Ziggy. They are friends but nothing more."
Emily dated Hollister model Jack Vacher for five years before they pair split in 2018.
Later that year, while appearing on I'm a Celebrity, TV star Emily revealed that she had struggled with her mental health following the break-up.
The actress had previously noted her insecurities about the relationship and revealed that she didn't want to stand next to her ex-boyfriend because he was too good looking.
Emily reportedly had a “friends with benefits” fling with former King of the Jungle Dougie Poynter.
The actress got together with McFly bassist Dougie — who won the show in 2011 — after splitting from her model ex Jack Vacher.
But when Emily entered the jungle in 2018, she begged producers to find her a boyfriend after admitting her long term goal was to find love and settle down.
She joked at the time that she would have more "fun" with a male companion at her side.
Emily reportedly first expressed her interest in a baby-faced Harry Styles in 2010.
On her Twitter page at the time, she wrote: “Does Harry from One Direction HAVE to be 16?!
“Let’s pretend he’s 18 at least! Then there’d be only One Direction he’d be going – to the bedroom!”
In 2013, Emily revealed that the two had ended up dating for period of time, but that they no longer keep in touch.
She said: "We had a nice little fling. We were never boyfriend and girlfriend. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever admitted to what it was, because I’ve just shrugged it off before.
“Harry and I had fun, then went in opposite directions. We haven’t spoken in a while.”
The Sun exclusively revealed that Emily had enjoyed a secret fling in 2016 with Strictly Come Dancing Love rat, Seann Walsh.
At the time he was understood to be in the middle of his five-year-long relationship with long-term partner Rebecca Humphries.
Rebecca dumped him on Twitter after The Sun revealed pictures of the comedian kissing married Strictly dance partner Katya Jones.
According to sources Sean and Emily first “clicked” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2016 and went on to enjoy a series of liaisons, meeting at pubs and hotels.
A source said: "Seann and Emily were really keen on each other. They were totally wrapped up in each other’s company.
“Emily told people she was in love with Seann. She liked the way he was funny and quite macho — a man’s man.
“He obviously made her laugh but also treated her well and lavished her with her gifts and flowers. She liked the fact that he was a little bit older and more experienced than her, so seemed like a man of the world.
In November 2021, The Sun exclusively revealed that Emily had been secretly meeting up with footballer Jack Grealish.
The Man City midfielder, who has reportedly been in an on off relationship with childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood since he was 16, was allegedly calling Emily, 31, almost every day after the pair exchanged numbers in September 2021.
They reportedly met once at Manchester’s five-star Lowry hotel on October 18 – ahead of City’s Champions League victory against Belgium’s Club Brugge – and later at the actress’s home in the capital.
Describing their friendship as the “talk of the dressing room," Jack’s pal explained that the pair have a mutual admiration for each other."
The friend told the Sun: “Emily watched Jack in the Euros and thought he was fit. “And for his part, Jack has been a fan of hers since she starred as Charlotte ‘Big Jugs’ Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners.
“They started DMing on Instagram before swapping numbers, and taking it on to WhatsApp and FaceTime.
“Jack’s been calling her almost every day and has been pretty open about it.
“They’ve become really good mates, are FaceTiming loads and he’s like a little puppy dog around her.
“It’s very sweet. They have a real laugh together.”
A friend later added: “They’re getting very close but obviously haven’t crossed a line.
"Jack is very focussed on his career and Emily is a fun, popular girl who is incredibly busy work-wise at the moment."
At the time of writing, neither have commented on the rumours.
