Emily Atack screams and falls head over heels as she attempts tricky Celebrity Juice task

EMILY Atack screams and falls off a large silver gym ball face first during a tricky challenge in tonight's Celebrity Juice.

The actress, 30, manages to balance on the ball for a matter of seconds before crashing to the studio floor.

Before she takes her place atop the wobbly gym equipment, comedian Jimmy Carr jokes: "It's going to look like you've got a massive silver haemorrhoid."

Host Keith Lemon then makes a pretend fart noise as Emily urges him to stop.

This week Keith claimed Emily encourages stars to party hard on the ITV2 show as she makes herself at home as the new team captain, replacing Holly Willoughby.

She’s one half of the brand new series’ epic line-up, starring opposite Love Island host Laura Whitmore.

“I’m a lucky man, aren’t I,” Keith told The Sun.

“I sent pictures to my friends saying this is the new line for the captains and I got a lot of expletives sent to me in return, calling me a ‘lucky f***ing b*****d’.”

But when pushed on whether Emily is as wild as her predecessor Holly, Keith couldn't choose between them.

“They’re all my mates,” he said.

“We’ve known each other for years. The three of us didn’t realise how far back we go, we’ve worked together a lot before. 

“I like the idea that we can become a solid three and do more things in the future. We’ve created a little tight gang already, it’s nice. We filmed something on location, which was kind of like our bonding.”

Coronavirus precautions have banned stars from their usual wild antics. 

While Holly and previous show captain Fearne Cotton were filmed “necking on” – much to the delight of Keith – stars are forbidden from touching in the new series.

Show bosses have also slashed the number of people in the audience and insisted they wear face masks.

But new arrival Emily won’t let that stop her having fun on set as she enjoys getting drunk with pal Keith.

“When does it ever not get boozy?” laughed Keith.

“I’ll say ‘Emily are you having a drink tonight?’ And she’ll say ‘Yeah always’. 

“Celebrity Juice is a party and that’s the weirdest thing about this series, is that the audience is only made up of 46 people with microphones, when you watch it on telly you won’t notice the difference but I notice the difference.

“It’s normally like a stag or a hen do Celeb Juice – the audience are nuts in a good way.

“I feel bad for the girls [Emily and Laura] that they’re not getting 100 per cent Juice experience.”

Although he insisted ITV2 viewers won’t notice the difference, Keith admitted he had to make sure he gave his full attention to celebrity guests who were missing the audience interaction.

He said: “With the panel, I sort of interact more. When they do different set-ups I’m talking more and messing around, but now I’m conscious of keeping the guests entertained as there is no audience to give them any love, so I guess I give them a lot of love. 

“The audience are lovely but they’ve got masks on – you can’t see if they’re smiling. 

“But I can’t complain. There are some people who can’t do their programmes for some reasons but I feel so lucky.”
