Jack Grealish has been having secret dates with Emily Atack.
The England and Manchester City footballer is said to be a huge fan of The Inbetweeners actress and they have enjoyed a couple of dates together at her hotel in Manchester and her home in North London.
Friends of the pair have claimed that the pair are talking “almost every day” and he has become “like a little puppy dog” around the former I’m A Celebrity campmate.
A source told The Sun: “Emily watched Jack in the Euros and thought he was fit. And for his part, Jack has been a fan of hers since she starred as Charlotte ‘Big Jugs’ Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners.
“They started DMing on Instagram before swapping numbers, and taking it on to WhatsApp and FaceTime. Jack’s been calling her almost every day and has been pretty open about it.”
“They’ve become really good mates, are FaceTiming loads and he’s like a little puppy dog around her. It’s very sweet. They have a real laugh together,” the insider added.
Jack and Emily are growing “very close”, but both are busy with work so they haven’t “crossed a line” yet.
A friend said: “They’re getting very close but obviously haven’t crossed a line. Jack is very focussed on his career and Emily is a fun, popular girl who is incredibly busy work-wise at the moment.”
Jack has been dating Sasha Attwood on and off since they were 16-years-old, with rumours swirling on the status of their romance throughout the year when the football ace was apparently spotted on celebrity dating app Raya.
But Sasha poured cold water on the rumours they had split by paying tribute to her boyfriend on his birthday in September.
Alongside a collage of the pair, she wrote: “Happy birthday my babe loving you always.”

Sasha also previously opened up about receiving 200 death threats a day from social media users over her relationship with Jack.
“I was receiving 200 death threats a day. I’m not exaggerating when I say that,” she said.
“I had so many messages every single day. I still get them now, all day every day. They said, ‘I hope you get cancer and die’ or ‘I hope your whole family dies’. They say, ‘I hope the next time you’re in the car you crash it and die, I hope after Wembley you die.'”
