I’m A Celebrity’s Emily Atack breaks silence on rumoured fling with Seann Walsh

Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack has seemingly made light of a recent report claiming she enjoyed a fling with Seann Walsh while he was in a relationship with Rebecca Humphries.

The stand-up comedian, who was dumped by Rebecca after kissing his married dance partner Katya Jones, is said to have gone on a string of dates with the actress after "clicking" at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2016.

The pair reportedly met up at pubs and hotels over a few months, with a source claiming they were "totally wrapped up in each other".

Seann and live-in girlfriend Rebecca were together on and off over a period of five years before splitting in October 2018.

While a spokeswoman for Seann declined to comment on the claims, Emily has remained quiet – until recently.

The actress appeared to hint at their romance in a tweet shared with her thousands of followers.

She wrote: "The stress of this pub quiz in Crouch End is more than any stress I’ve had this week."

Emily added the hashtag: "Stopshoutingouttheanswersyoud**kheads."

The source added: “The picture that came out this week suggests they just met the once but that’s really not the case," the source went on.

“He was extremely evasive when asked about his relationships.

"Emily was under the impr­es­sion he was single. Seann was never candid about him and Rebecca.”

    Passionate dance reveals true feelings

The long-haired comic is believed to have first met the 28-year-old Inbetweeners actress on comedy panel show Virtually Famous.

Seann and pro dancer Katya triggered a Strictly storm after pictures showed them snogging in the street on a night out .

The kiss happened as Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca was home alone – on her birthday.

Rebecca later dumped the comic and told how he “aggressively and repeatedly” branded her “psycho and mental” when she suggested something inappropriate was going on with Katya on the show.
