FROM simulating a sex act on stage, candidly opening up about orgasms and a string of celeb hook-ups, gorgeous Celebrity Juice star Emily Atack is certainly not shy when it comes to talking about sex – and why should she be?
Given her self-confessed desire to “celebrate women who aren’t afraid to express themselves”, the 30-year-old’s recent revelation that she’d had a threesome with a married couple barely raised an eyebrow.
Her down-to-earth attitude and carefree confidence are why Emily has been dubbed a ‘strong female role model’ by many fans, and her risque revelations have provided plenty of content for her ITV2 comedy show, aptly named The Emily Atack Show.
From her celebrity flings to saucy sex secrets, here we take a closer look at Emily’s admissions about her own wild sex life, and how she’s overcome past heartache to feel comfortable to bare all…
Talking – and acting out – sex on stage
Emily has made no secret of the fact she is keen to normalise women speaking confidently about their sex lives.
Speaking about her comedy show, she told The Mirror: “It will be quite alarming for people at first to see a blonde girl with boobs on stage talking about sex, but why not?”
“Blokes talk like that all the time. I want to celebrate being women who aren’t afraid to express themselves.”
She says: “I’m saying we’re allowed to talk about that stuff, too. That’s the flag I’m flying at the moment.”
She doesn’t just stop at talking about sex either.
A recent episode of the comedian’s show also saw her simulate a sex act live on stage as Beyoncé’s sexy song Drunk In Love played.
She was recently linked to tattooed model Charlie Edwards, who at 21 is nine years her junior, but while Emily has dated a fair few men younger than her, she hasn’t always felt so comfortable with a noticeable age gap between her and her other half.
When Emily dated long-term love Jack Vacher, who was four years younger than her, Emily jokingly admitted the age difference left her feeling “like a perv” when dating the model.
In a March 2017 post on Instagram, Emily wrote: “Happy birthday to you @jack_vacher 23 today. I STILL feel like a perv!!!
The pair dated for five years, and separated just before Emily joined I’m A Celeb in 2018.
‘A nice little fling’
Not that this stopped her dating another famous younger man.
Emily has also had some very high profile rumoured hook-ups in the past, saying: “I like dating guys in my industry because they have a better understanding of what it’s like.”
These include none other than One Directioner Harry Styles who she hooked up with in 2013, when she was 23 and he was 19.
While he was in X Factor in 2010 she tweeted: “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!”
The I’m A Celeb runner up later 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.
“So, yeah, we had a short-lived thing that was just a bit of fun.
“Then we went off in our different directions.”
‘Friends with benefits’
While Emily’s One Direction romance was just a bit of fun, Harry’s not the only high profile celeb she’s been linked to, having reportedly had a ‘friends with benefits’ arrangement with McFly’s Dougie Poynter.
She’s certainly not averse to dating a man a couple of years her senior either.
She was previously linked to Seann Walsh, now 34, who was photographed kissing his married Strictly dance partner, Katya Jones, and was left red-faced when photos of them in bed together were leaked online.
The star was also linked to 37-year-old Big Brother star Ziggy Lichman – however, her team later denied the rumours, saying they were “friends but nothing more”.
Faking 90% of orgasms
Despite being very upfront when it comes to sharing the ‘juicy’ details of her dalliances, there is one thing Emily struggles to be completely honest about.
And it’s a revelation that will no doubt send chills through her past conquests too, as she has previously confessed: “Do you know I spend 90 per cent of my sex life faking it?”
“I do! I fake it all the time. Because… I don’t want them to feel bad.
“I fake it all the time. God, I’m going to get some texts after this.”
Called the wrong name – during sex
We may have all had that awkward moment when someone has called us the wrong name, but for Emily this situation was even more mortifying when she was called her Inbetweener’s character’s name – during sex.
Emily, who played Charlotte Hinchcliffe in the E4 show, said: “I’ve been called Charlotte by three different dates.
“I’ve always forgiven it because they genuinely haven’t meant to do it, and I can see the absolute look of horror on their faces when they realise.
“I’ve laughed it off, although once I was sleeping with someone when they said it and it was like, ‘oh for f***s sake’. I still carried on though.”
A tragic cry for help, to comfortable and confident
Sex isn’t the only thing Emily has spoken candidly about, and despite her refreshing willingness to talk about relationships the star has suffered more than her fair share of heartache too.
She bravely opened up last year following her split with film producer Rob Jowers about her heartache, and her battle with depression.

Speaking to OK!, she said: “Heartbreak gets harder to deal with as you get older as you pin your hopes on things. I so wanted this to be my happy ending.”
Writing in her book, Emily also revealed as a teen she’d tried to take her own life, drinking a bottle of vodka and self harming in what she describes as a “cry for help”.
Thankfully, it seems through opening up and feeling comfortable within herself, Emily’s been able to put this heartache behind her.
nd by being so open and honest hopefully she’s paved the way for others to feel comfortable to do the same.
