‘Sometimes you have to tell people to f**k off. I get fat-shamed a lot, but I don’t give a sh*t.

Emily Atack: Instagram Reality Is Not Reality!

The 30-year-old star – who has recently promoted her upcoming stand up gig Emily Has Left The Chat – reassures fans that ‘Instagram-perfect isolation’ amidst the coronavirus lockdown is not a thing.

Back in April, she revealed:

‘It has been three weeks since I have physically touched another human being. I am isolating alone in the London flat I recently moved into. Like so many, I have been in shock. I’ve woken up in the middle of the night with crushing anxiety like I’ve never experienced before. My internal monologue is already knackered.’

The I’m A Celebrity… Runner Up Admits That There Have Been Good And Bad Days In Isolation

She said:

‘Being alone has always been my number one fear. And yet here I am. In the middle of a pandemic, completely isolated from everyone and everything I know and love.’

The actress and comedienne admits she feels guilty when it comes to opening up about her bad days – particularly on social media – in fear of a backlash.

She adds:

‘I am learning it’s OK to feel sad right now, it’s OK to admit you’re a bit alone, and it’s OK to feel s**t. Especially if you suffer with mental health issues. Give yourself a break. Instagram-perfect isolation is not a reality.’

Emily talked about her mental health and quarantine routine of Good Morning Britain, telling Lorraine Kelly that she likes to get ‘glammed up’ to go to the supermarket to lift her spirits, joking that it’s like queuing up for a bar.

‘I’m a very strong person, there’s definitely been some difficult moments being on your own. I’m the least lonely person in the world, surrounded by family and friends in real life.

‘It’s [the pandemic] so awful, we have to look at the positives in life. If we’ve got our health… it’s the most important thing in the world. Everything is so difficult, but if you have your health, friends and family, it’s good.’

She Has Written An Article On ‘Isolating When You’re Single’

The star opened up about her fear of being alone and how she, like so many others, were being forced to confront his fear. She wrote in the Grazia:

‘Being alone has always been my number one fear. And yet here I am. In the middle of a pandemic, completely isolated from everyone and everything I know and love, Instagraming myself poaching an egg. Caption: “I am a useless t*sser.”‘

She gave an unabashedly personal and relatable account of her quarantine adventures:

‘I have taken little swipes at an online dating app I’ve rejoined out of sheer boredom. Could a hunky Scandinavian DJ be the answer to my prayers? Probably not.

‘I FaceTime my mum and tell her I miss her (she’s on her own too) – she asks why my eyes are pink. I’m on my phone for hours… Smiling at videos of families home- schooling, I marvel (and cringe) at couples who TikTok together, I howl at the terrible haircuts girls are giving their lads.’

‘I Feel Scared To Vocalise A Bad Moment…With The Fear Of The Reaction I’ll Receive From Those Who Insist My Life Is Perfect’

She advises fans not to give themselves a hard time for not feeling great and allow themselves to feel sad when they feel sad, saying:

‘If you’re on your own like me, or if you’re not, be kind to yourself. Download a yoga app, then delete it if you want to. Sign up to volunteer if you can. Donate to the charity that has lost their fundraisers for this year. Read a book, have a bath, have a gin (not too early and not too large), watch Titanic for the 107,000th time.’

She cheekily adds:

‘…FaceTime someone you fancy… sorry, I mean your family! Order that large Texas BBQ base with stuffed crust… stare at the ceiling if you like. I draw the line at baking banana bread, though. Banana bread can f**k off.’
