Emily Atack notices embarrassing wardrobe blunder minutes before going on stage

By Claire Murphy

Comic actress and presenter Emily Atack suffered a wardrobe malfunction moments before she started her comedy one-woman show.

The 31-year old star of Celebrity Juice was just bout to tread the boards at the Albany Theatre in Coventry when she spotted her error, and went straight onto Instagram to inform her 1.7 million followers.

She said: "I’m going on stage soon and I’ve just realised I've got a white bran on underneath a black top. So that’s going to be embarrassing actually with the lighting."

Emily joked: Coventry, you’re in for a treat. I mean it’s debatable if it’s a treat but you’re definitely going to get more than you paid for!"

The runner-up to Harry Redknapp in 2018’ s I’m a Celebrity Ge Me Out of Here! has been on the road with her second UK comedy tour.

Entitled Emily Atack Has Left the Group, it’s all about being a thirtysomething, losing her fear of missing out, and feeling delighted when a friend decides to scrap dinner plans.

Ironically, the tour itself was postponed from 2020 and has now been rescheduled for this autumn.

The former Inbetweeners star has spent two nights in Coventry, posting another message yesterday.

She wrote:“What a week! One more show in Coventry tonight, then have a few days off with my dog and my pals.

Grateful to everyone who has come to the shows so far, grateful to everyone who has watched the sketch show, grateful to hotel bars that stay open past 10pm”

Earlier this week, she spoke out about the horrifying trolling she's been subjected to, since being in the public eye.

She revealed that she's received rape and death threats, sometimes "dozens" a day. Emily told the Sunday Times she'd been disgusted at the images of men masturbating, and even more shocked when she tried to find out more about the men who made her their target.

She added: “Some of these men are married with children. They’ve got daughters in their profile pictures..

"How can you sleep at night knowing you’ve just tucked your daughter into bed, probably helped them with their homework, and then you’re sneakily going onto your phone?”
