Emily Atack has revealed that men she’s dated have got her confused with her Inbetweeners character – including during sex.
The actress and comedian, 30, revealed people often call her by the name of her The Inbetweeners character, Charlotte Hinchcliffe, when they spot her in the street.
She told The Mirror that she tends to laugh it off: ‘I’ve been called Charlotte by three different dates.
‘I’ve always forgiven it because they genuinely haven’t meant to do it, and I can see the absolute look of horror on their faces when they realise.
‘I’ve laughed it off, although once I was sleeping with someone when they said it and it was like, “oh for f**ks sake” – I still carried on though.’
Emily found fame on the show, where she played the blonde bombshell who ended up being a love interest for Will McKenzie, played by Simon Bird.
Since starring on the show, and stints on Dancing On Ice and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, Emily has gone on to create her own stand-up tour and sketch show.
Promising to be just as unfiltered, she wants to show that women can express themselves in the same way as men.
She added: ‘[The Emily Atack Show] will be quite alarming for people at first to see a blonde girl with boobs on stage talking about sex, but why not?’
The new Celebrity Juice team captain also recently opened up about sexually explicit DMs she receives from random men, revealing some have apologised for their behaviour since she spoke out.
Emily told Metro.co.uk: ‘It’s a tiny little step, but I think if you can just make one person maybe change their thought process…
‘If you could just make the tiniest difference. The start is just getting the thought in someone’s mind to maybe realise that their actions could be quite damaging. If you can do that with one person, it’s a start isn’t it?’
The Emily Atack Show starts on November 4 on ITV2.
