| Last updated
Emily Atack has become known for taking on bushtucker trials in the Australian jungle, but once upon a time she was part of one of the most popular comedies on TV.
Playing the role of Charlotte 'big jugs' Hinchcliffe in E4 comedy The Inbetweeners alongside the show's main stars, Joe Thomas (Simon), Simon Bird (Will), Blake Harrison (Neil) and James Buckley (Jay).
And much to fans' joy the cast announced the gang were getting back together for a special anniversary episode marking 10 years since the show first aired.
Well, everyone except Atack, it seems, after she claimed she was axed from the reunion after producers said they had decided to 'take a different route'.
Atack has been back in the spotlight after finishing second behind ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp in this year's series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here'.
Speaking to Capital FM, the actress said: "I don't really know what happened. I was booked to do it, very much looking forward to doing it, and then it was kind of the day before I was told I was no longer needed for it.
"It's alright. These things do happen and I think they just decided to go a different route. Or it was to do with production timings."
Emily added: "I wish them all the best and I know it's gonna be great and the fans won't be disappointed with it. It'll be great.
"It was all very professional. It's just business. Stuff like this happens all the time. You get booked to do something and then something happens, plans change and then sometimes you're not booked any more."
When she was asked about whether she would still be watching the episode, she joked: "Nah! Of course I'm joking. Of course I'll be watching it because hopefully there will be clips of me on there!
"I'll always support them. That show was an incredible part of my life and it always will be."
The hit comedy which followed the hapless band of misfit teenagers ran for three series between 2008 and 2010. It was then followed swiftly by two feature-length films, the first taking place in Malia and then in Australia.
The 10th anniversary show will see the actors look back at some of the its famous moments as well as some unseen footage.
