Emily Atack was axed from The Inbetweeners reunion for THIS outrageous reason
It has been reported that Emily Atack was axed from The Inbetweeners reunion because of a secret fling.
According to The Sun, show bosses discovered that Emily had a secret fling with her co-star James Buckley, who played Jay in the show.
Apparently, James was concerned that his wife would find out about the fling, and told producers: “It’s her or me.”
A source revealed:
"Emily got a call from producers 24 hours before she was due on set."
"They were deeply embarrassed and apologetic. They had to explain that James had asked she be taken off the show."
How pissed would you be?
The source went on, saying:
"The pair had a couple of cheeky snogs back in the day when they were both single."
"But James didn’t want it to become a major issue on the reunion, or with his wife Clair."
"The kissing meant nothing to Emily and has never been an issue for her. She was very taken aback to be told she wasn’t needed, and genuinely gutted."
"She thought everything was good to go, and was looking forward to reuniting with the guys."
Apparently, James told producers that Emily's appearance on I'm A Celeb was not in keeping with The Inbetweeners’ cult appeal.
We call bullshit on that excuse.
The source added:
"Emily heard James had slagged her off about I’m A Celebrity, saying it was tacky and not ‘on brand’ — which she understandably found patronising."
"Emily never wanted this to come out. She just wants to rise above it and move on."
"She has lots more exciting things in the pipeline which will be a bit of a ‘two fingers up’ to The Inbetweeners."
