New single Emily Atack catches up with former flame Seann Walsh via WhatsApp

Emily Atack spoke to her former flame Seann Walsh about texting after her breakup with model boyfriend Jude Taylor.

The Inbetweeners star, 31, and the comedian, 35, are said to have previously enjoyed a ‘series of dates’ in 2016 after clicking the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Emily took to her Instagram stories on Tuesday and shared a screenshot of the couple’s WhatsApp chat, where she sent him a voice message to which he replied, “This is fantastic.”

Emily then sent him another voice message, followed by a message that read, “How do I get my f*****g tele to work,” to which Seann replied, “Shove it up your a**e.”

The Celebrity Juice star jokingly captioned the post: “Cheers friend @SeannWalsh.”

To make sure there was no romance, Emily also played Dionne Warwick’s song That’s What Friends Are For over the mail.

Emily recently split from boyfriend Jude after struggling to see him due to her hectic work commitments.

The couple was last photographed at the Chelsea launch of The Ivy Asia in late July, and last month Emily shared a much-loved photo with Jude at her sister’s wedding.

But a friend of Emily’s told me… The sun: ‘Emily and Jude were a great match and had a lot of fun, but in the end it turned out to be too difficult to make it work in the long run, they’ve barely been able to see each other lately, so made the decision to call it quits.

“Emily also has so much to do at the moment and that made their relationship a bit more difficult.

“She’s just finished filming the second series of her one-woman TV show and that’s asking a lot of her. Moreover, she is now moving and it is a lot of juggling.’

Emily’s friend added, while the couple is “quite upset” about the split, “both knew it was over.”

Emily’s representatives declined to comment when MailOnline contacted them.

It comes after Emily and Seann had a nice chat at a Nando’s in Clapham late last month.

It seemed to be a working lunch for the duo as MailOnline understands that Seann works as one of the writers of Emily’s show – The Emily Atack Show.

An insider said: “Seann is part of the writing team helping out with some stand-up elements on the latest Emily Atack show series currently in production.”

In October 2018, it was claimed that Seann and Emily were enjoying a ‘series of dates’ after clicking at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016.

British comedian Seann – who came under fire for kissing his Strictly co-star Katya Jones – was dating ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries at the time.

Emily was eager to “put it all behind her” after an intimate photo of the two in bed surfaced online.

An insider told the Sun at the time: “Emily is mortified that this photo has appeared. She would have liked to put the whole thing behind her and is only too eager to forget it.’

The source explained that the I’m A Celebrity star now “regrets ever using her camera in the bedroom” after the “personal image” was leaked.

“At the time, she and Seann were completely absorbed in each other. But she’s over it now,” the insider added.

Representatives for Emily and Seann were contacted at the time for comment.

The pair became “crowded together” and enjoyed “secret contacts in pubs and hotels” at the time of their rumours, sources said last year.

Emily reportedly told friends she was “in love with Seann”, whom she first met on the E4 show Virtually Famous in 2014, before reconnecting in Edinburgh, where their “friendship got off the ground”.

“They hit it off,” a source told The Sun. “She liked that he was a little older and more experienced than she was, so he seemed like a man of the world.”

Sources added that Seann was “extremely evasive” when asked about his relationships and that “Emily was under the impression he was single.”

The pair were also linked after Seann’s kiss with Katya, when pictures emerged of the star having a cozy showing with actress Emily in a London pub.

Seann and Emily were pictured in December 2016, four months after their trip to Edinburgh, flirting and holding hands while enjoying a drink.

A source told MailOnline: ‘I was in a pub in central London and saw him flirting with Emily. I knew he had a girlfriend, so I thought it was a little off because they got really close.”
