She's now living in the Australian jungle for I'm A Celebrity – but what else do we know about her, and what else has she been in?
Who is Emily Atack?
Emily Jane Atack was born in Luton, Bedfordshire, on December 18, 1989 – that makes her 28.
She shot to fame as Charlotte Hinchcliffe – the love interest of Simon Bird’s Will McKenzie – in award-winning E4 series The Inbetweeners from 2008 to 2010.
However, that's not her only acting role – she has also starred in films such as the remake of Dad's Army opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bill Nigh, and in telly shows such as Rock and Chips, Little Crackers, The Keith Lemon Sketch Show and The Tracey Ullman Show.
She has had a series of smaller parts in independent films, including this year’s Iron Sky: The Coming Race and 2017’s Lost In Florence, but has struggled to make it on primetime telly.
Her mum is actress/comedian Kate Robbins and her dad is musician Keith Atack.
And Paul McCartney is Emily's grandmother's cousin.
In 2010, Kate was a contestant in ITV's Dancing on Ice. She partnered with professional ice skater Fred Palasca, and they were voted off in week eight.
Most recently she joined Avengers star Cobie Smulders in new comedy film Alright Now.
In October 2018 she hit headlines when The Sun published pictures of her with Strictly Come Dancing star Seann Walsh a week after he was seen kissing dance partner Katya Jones.
