I'm A Celebrity's Emily Atack reveals huge crush on Jamie Redknapp and jokes she'll be Harry's new daughter-in-law

Inbetweeners star Emily, 28, revealed her crush to the legendary football manager, 71, as some of the stars chatted about other famous people who were in their families.

Actress Emily asked ex sportsman Harry if his former footballer son Jamie, 45, was single, joking: “Ooh imagine, Emily Redknapp, I would make a really good daughter in law.”

And Harry seemed to be on board, telling her: “You would be fantastic there is no doubt about that Emily.”

She reassured him: “I’m only messing around,” before miming for Jamie to call her.

Jamie was previously married to former pop star Louise, 44, but their union ended last year.


Soccer pundit Jamie was dating girlfriend Julia Restoin Roitfeld earlier this year but he is now single.

Emily’s lust for Jamie came about as she and her campmates chatted about their celebrity family members on the show.

Former EastEnders actress Rita Simons, 41, is related to business magnate and Apprentice boss Alan Sugar, 71.

Rita said: “It was my intention to be an actor and a performer which is what I do and how can Alan help me do that?”, prompting Emily to ask: “Is this Alan Sugar? I only found this out the other day.”

“It’s all anyone ever asks me, I’m so surprised you didn’t know, I get so many people saying did I get my job on EastEnders because of him but no, I auditioned for four weeks,” Rita told her.

She later added in the Bush Telegraph: “I think people are quick to say you got a leg up but just like Harry with Jamie, you can’t give someone a leg up if they are crap.”

Emily, who is related to Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and whose mother is Spitting Image star Kate Robbins, told her pals Down Under how her whole family was in showbiz.

She explained: “A bunch of show offs, I don’t think there is a single person in my family who has a real job.

“Christmas Day is definitely fun. I had comments when I was younger saying I’d only get into it because of my family. I’m related to a Beatle for goodness sake!”

She continued: “Paul McCartney is my grandma’s cousin. She essentially helped raise him because his mum died when he was really young.

“He and John Lennon started up their first band in my grandparent’s garage. He’s lovely and Stella and Mary are lovely.”
