Meanwhile, Seann also opted for casual attire as he sported a plaid shirt and black jeans with a pair of trainers. 

It was claimed in October 2018 that Seann and Emily enjoyed a ‘string 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, who is now in a relationship with boyfriend Jude Taylor, was said to be keen to put the ‘whole dalliance behind her’ after an intimate snap of the two of them in bed together surfaced online.

An insider told the Sun at the time: ‘Emily is mortified that this ­picture has appeared. She had wanted to put the whole dalliance behind her and is keen to forget about it.’

The source went on to explain 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 totally wrapped up in each other. But she’s over it now,’ the insider added. 

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

The pair became ‘totally wrapped up in each other’ and enjoyed ‘secret liaisons at pubs and hotels’ at the time of their rumoured fling, sources said last year.

Emily reportedly told friends she was ‘in love with Seann’, who she first met on E4 show Virtually Famous in 2014 before reconnecting in Edinburgh where their ‘friendship took off’.

‘That is where they properly clicked,’ a source told the Sun. ‘She liked the fact that he was a little bit older and more experienced than her, so seemed like a man of the world.’

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

The pair were also linked following Seann’s kiss with Katya, when pictures emerged of the star putting on a cosy display with actress Emily in a pub in London.

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

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 thought it was a bit out of order as they were getting very close.’
