Emily Atack won over the hearts of the nation when she came runner-up on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2018.

Before the likes of Emily, Harry Redknapp, John Barrowman and Nick Knowles headed into the jungle, they all stayed in accommodation for 10 days.

For the majority of the stars, this meant making the most of a luxurious room and having a drink or two from their hotel minibar.

But, Emily, 31, has claimed bosses were so worried the actress would rack up a huge alcohol bill that they decided to keep her room's booze stash locked away.

"When I was doing the jungle I had to be hidden away from the world for ten days," she explained on the What's Upset You? podcast.

“I thought, 'This is going to be great. I’ve got my hotel, I’m just going to live off the mini bar every day.'

"I went to open it and production had literally put a lock on all of the stuff."

The star added that she even asked staff to remove the lock, stating: "I went to reception and I asked, 'Could you unlock my mini bar?' and she went, 'We’ve actually been told by production to keep that on there for you.'"

Emily also claimed she later discovered that none of her campmates had their alcohol locked away before the series began.

The comedian missed out on the winning title when the series ended, as Harry Redknapp was crowned King of the Jungle.

Celebrity Juice star Emily is reportedly now single again after splitting from her boyfriend of five months, Jude Taylor.

A source told The Sun that although the influencer and the TV star were great together, Emily struggled to see a future with him, so they have gone their separate ways.

"They have barely managed to see each other recently so made the decision to call it quits," they said.

“Emily has so much going on at the moment too and that made their relationship a little more difficult."

The source added that Emily has been busy filming a second series of her one woman show – The Emily Atack Show – and is juggling work with moving house.

It's been claimed the split is a "shock" to those around the pair, particularly after reports that Jude attended Emily's sister's wedding with her.
