The Inbetweeners star’s social media milestone cemented her relationship with the former Big Brother housemate, with the beloved couple posing for a selfie over a boozy brunch.
TV star Emily and her former partners are believed to have been “dating for a short while,” but the romance has “become more serious lately.”
The I’m A Celeb star is said to be ‘very excited’ to move on with Liam, with the source adding: ‘Emily has been career oriented lately, shrugs off men and dating, etc.
“But if you ask her, she feels very strongly that she should be able to throw herself into having fun and enjoying life, just like any famous man should.
“She has no need to apologize for being in the picture with some of the guys, but this time it’s going well and she’s happy to leave things as they are for a while and see if it progresses.” ‘
Liam was a housemate on Big Brother’s 2007 series, where he finished in third place, losing to winner Brian Belo.
Emily has been linked with a number of men in recent months, including comedian and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Seann Walsh, and footballer Jack Grealish, 26.
The TV star and Manchester City footballer Jack is said to have enjoyed a six-week secret fling while he was still dating his girlfriend Sasha Attwood – something the pair have vehemently denied.
