Emily Atack channels Marilyn Monroe as she embraces her natural curls in a series of stunning photos

Emily Atack channelled Hollywood glamour as she posed for a series of new photos. The comedy actress, who shot to fame as Charlotte Hinchcliffe in the E4 comedy series The Inbetweeners, was a ringer for American screen icon Marilyn Monroe in a collection of black and white and colour snaps posted on her Instagram Stories.

The 33-year-old star, who was a runner-up on I'm A Celebrity ...Get Me Out Of Here! in 2018, embraced her natural curls as she pouted for the camera just like the Some Like It Hot legend, sporting Marilyn's famous red colour. Emily completed the look with fluttery lashes and perfectly groomed brows.

The star recently adopted the look of another idol as she wowed with her blonde tresses worn in choppy waves with a fringe. "Channelling my inner Samantha Jones," she captioned a sun-soaked snap on her Instagram.


Fans said she was almost recognisable as she gazed into the camera, wearing a stylish coat with a glam furry collar. Andrew Lock exclaimed: "Doesn't look like you!" And wdavies_1971 said: "Throw back to yesteryear Farrah Fawcett." Boyd Rees praised: "Love the hair." And Allan.d told her: "Lovin this barnet."

In a previous snaps she captured a selfie, with her bouncy curls pulled back from her face, as she posed in the mirror. Emily looked sensational in a smart coat worn over a black cropped top. Fellow actress Daisy May Cooper gasped: "SO F***ING FIT."

Chloe Madeley replied "Fit" with a flame emoji, Pussycat Doll Kimberley Wyatt praised "Cute!" and her proud mum Kate Robbins said: "Love my babba’s natural curls xxx"

In January Emily was praised for her powerful BBC Two documentary Asking for It?, about her experiences of cyberflashing and sexual harassment. She talked about the explicit messages she was sent on social media.

The hour-long show explored how "something so grotesque, aggressive, malicious and violent" has evolved and can be tackled, with Emily speaking to a sexual violence and abuse councillor and online safety campaigners to learn why this has been normalised for so long. She also talked to police in the show about what is being done to protect women and girls.

Schoolgirls shared their own experiences with Emily over receiving unsolicited messages and pictures from people as young as 12, while the actress also met a group of men to ask them why they thought these messages are being sent.

There were emotional moments for the comedian as she struggled to speak to her mum about her experiences and how they had impacted her. Emily was seen sitting down with her parents and showing them her Instagram messages inbox.

Emily broke down in tears as she appeared on This Morning chatting to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about he programme. She spoke about one man who repeatedly messages her crude messages. "He calls himself 'Daddy Dave to me' and constantly says the word 'daddy' which is a really psychologically horrible thing," she said before beginning to cry.
