Emily Atack is an English actress and comedian who has been presenting the television show, Adulting. She took part in the latest series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and previously competed in the fifth series of Dancing on Ice. The actress has been very vocal about her weight loss in the past and recently slimmed down after her stint in the jungle. With limited rations of food available, it is no surprise that Emily lost weight during that time.
Contestants on the show had to survive on a diet of mostly rice and beans and Emily opened up about how it changed her body.
Speaking to OK! Magazine about how much she had lost, she said: “Not much, about half a stone. I’m feeling good and healthy, though, I’ve had a good detox.”
Before going into the jungle, the comedian revealed she was open to the idea of using the experience as a chance to shape up.
After leaving the jungle, she said on Down Under: “I just want to lose a bit of weight so that when I get home and it’s Christmas I have a bit of room and can put it back on again.
“I love food so much, I love cheese and champagne and salads, fries, yum.”
Emily also spoke about body image and how her weight loss helped her change her views on herself.
In an interview with The Guardian, she said: “My body was becoming way more womanly, and I wasn’t looking like the girl next door any more.
“I so badly want to sit here and go: ‘I love my body.’ But I can’t lie and say it doesn’t upset me when I get called fat.”
She took to social media to explain she was going to try and be more confident and stop editing her photos to make herself slimmer.
In a post on Instagram, she wrote: “I used to use Facetune to get rid of blemishes and slimming apps because I was scared of being called fat, but no more.”
Tonight, she will join other stars as they watch TV on Celebrity Gogglebox.
Nigella Lawson is the celebrity chef who has taken part in the TV show and also recently opened up about her weight loss.
Speaking in 2015, Nigella explained she began to slim unintentionally after an operation made it more difficult for her to get about.
She has used a healthy diet and exercise plan to keep the weight off.
Another celebrity chef, James Martin, cut fatty foods from his diet to shed a remarkable 6st.
