Emily Atack wants to take the next step with footballer with Jack Grealish who is alleged to be besotted with her after a string of dates.
According to sources, Emily, 31, has given the 26-year-old Man City star an ultimatum, telling him to choose between her and his childhood sweetheart, Sasha Attwood.
Jack and Sasha have been together for ten years after meeting at school in Solihull, but according to the source, Emily had no idea he was in a relationship when she started speaking to him.
She had also spotted him on celebrity dating app Raya, which made her believe that England’s first £100 million footballer was free and single.
“Jack is besotted with Emily… she really likes him too – otherwise, of course, she wouldn’t have met up with him.

“She did also think he was single – it is what you expect if you see someone on a site looking for a girlfriend,” the source told T he Mail on Sunday.
“Emily has really enjoyed his company recently, but she certainly isn’t going to hang around if he stays with his girlfriend. She will happily get on with her life if that’s what he wants to do. It’s up to him now.”
It is also claimed that Emily and Jack have enjoyed a handful of dates at Manchester’s Lowry Hotel and at her North London home.
They also allege that Sasha, a successful model in her own right, was left “devastated” after discovering his connection to I’m A Celeb star Emily on Friday night, shortly after cheering him on with other WAGs at England’s 5-0 win against Albania.
Representatives for both Jack Grealish and Emily Atak have been approached for comment regarding these claims.
Previous reports have claimed that the pair are talking “almost every day” and Jack has become “like a little puppy dog” around the Celebrity Juice panelist.
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’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.
“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.”
Sasha has previously spoken about the horrific trolling she has been subjected to for being in a relationship with Jack, claiming she gets hundreds of death threats aimed at her and her family every day.
