Emily Atack admits Jamie Redknapp romance has stepped up a level

Emily Atack made no secret of her lust for Jamie Redknapp during her time in the I’m A Celebrity jungle – she even pleaded with Harry Redknapp to pass a message on to his son.

And, having had a few showers and a lot more square meals after getting out of the jungle, Emily’s on the prowl for a romance with Jamie.

Speaking to Rob Howard on this morning’s Capital FM Breakfast show, former Inbetweeners star Emily acknowledged there had indeed been an update in her love life.

“So we wanted to ask, following up from the jungle, obviously you are a big Jamie Redknapp fan…?” Rob asked.

“Oh god,” she sighed.

“Has there been any progress with that? Pretend the whole of London – and probably Jamie himself – isn’t listening,” he instructed.

“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,” Emily cringed.

“The key word there being ‘yet’…” he laughed.

“Oh no. I said that on Loose Women accidentally the other day as well. No, no progress,” Emily said, covering her eyes with her hand.

She then admitted that she’s taken the next step to making Jamie her man.

“Any sort of DMs and sliding?” joked Rob.

“No!” she laughed. “I’ve followed him on Instagram but no joy back.”

“No follow back! Jamie, mate, if you’re listening now, please – make Emily Atack’s Christmas wish come true and follow her back,” Rob pleaded over the airwaves.

“Oh yeah, that won’t ruin his Christmas, with the bombarding mad people,” said an embarrassed Emily.

Addressing Jamie directly, she then added: “Oh god, poor thing. I feel so sorry for him, Jamie, I’m very sorry.”

Rob pointed out: “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.”

Capital’s Twitter account got in touch with Harry directly to beg him to sort out his son.

“. Redknapp , can you pass on a message from EmAtack ? She really, really, really, really, REALLY, really wants your son to follow her,” they wrote. 

“We’re getting JamieFollowEmily t-shirts made, EmAtack .” 

But Harry has previously admitted he doesn’t hold out much hope for Emily’s chances, after saying she had “no hope” of getting with Jamie.

He then changed his mind after seeing her at the I’m A Celeb wrap party,telling Good Morning Britain: “I’ll be honest, when I saw her in the jungle I thought ‘no chance’ but I’ve seen her today when she’s scrubbed up and she looks alright I’m telling ya.

“She looks very useful,” he added.
