Emily previously vowed to stop editing her images during an appearance on Loose Women last year.

The actress explained that her stripped-back appearance in the jungle has prompted her to change her approach to life and she is going to start by vowing not to edit her social media uploads anymore.

She said: ‘I’m deleting all my editing apps. You can edit your pictures until you’re blue in the face. I used to slim them down, I used to airbrush them…

‘It was so bad to the point that, you slim it down, but you get completely rumbled because the wall behind you is bent. I’m not doing that anymore.’

Emily also revealed while she is still single, there is a mystery man in her life now as she moves on from her crush on Jamie Redknapp.

She told The Sun‘s Fabulous magazine: ‘I am absolutely single, but there is someone I think about and like. I’ve no idea what it will turn into yet.

‘I’m so excited to see what this year will bring and my sole focus is work and my friendships, moving into my new place and getting my life together so when the opportunity for a relationship does come up, I’ll be completely ready for it.

‘I love love and I love being in love. When you’ve got so much love in your heart, it makes you vulnerable.’
