I'm A Celebrity 2018: Emily Atack is looking for love in the jungle

I'm A Celebrity 2018 Emily Atack

The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack says she's up for romance on I'm A Celebrity 2018.

The comedy actress is one of ten celebs lined up for the new series of I'm A Celeb, which launches this Sunday night on ITV.

And speaking ahead of going into camp, Emily has revealed her hopes and fears for the show.

"Put a nice bloke in there for me that I can sit and chat to," she giggled in a pre-launch interview.

"No don't put that in!" she then joked before adding: "Well you know, I'm single, it might be fun."

Emily went on: “I am single at the moment. And never say never (to finding a romance in the camp). 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!”

Explaining why she's signed up for the programme, Emily continued: "I'm doing the jungle because I've got to a point now where I'm 28-years-old, I'm ready to leave my twenties behind and now go into adulthood with a really big bang.

"I think if I can survive anything like this I can survive anything... The thought of cockroaches in my kick knacks. Oh God! The more I think about it the more I realise what I'm doing."

The I'm A Celebrity 2018 cast was confirmed earlier this month. Alongside Emily, they are EastEnders actor Rita Simons, TV presenter Nick Knowles, , X Factor's Fleur East and actor John Barrowman.

Joining them are The Vamps singer James McVey, The Chase's 'The Governess' Anne Hegerty, Football manager Harry Redknapp, Coronation Street's Sair Khan and Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here begins at 9PM on ITV this Sunday, hosted by Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly.
