She's made no secret she's a Love Island mega-fan with her spot on impressions of the contestants.

Emily previously went viral on Twitter after posting her impersonations of the Love Island cast in a post which was retweeted 11,000 times. 

But despite picking the doctor as her top choice, Emily divulged that she's currently spending time with a special someone, while knuckling down with work projects and finally finding happiness on her own. 

‘I’ve really found a happiness on my own. There is someone I like who I’m spending time with, but I’m fully focusing on work. 

'It’s the only time I’ve ever been able to do that because I’m not exclusive with anyone. I’m getting to know myself a lot and I quite like myself.'

The star also explained that she had been forced to toughen up due to the pressure put on actors to look a certain way to win top roles, but says she enjoys eating with her friends too much to do that.

‘You really have to develop a thick skin. In this industry there’s a massive pressure to be a certain weight. 

'I’ve been told I’d get so much more work if I was smaller, but going out for dinner and drinks with my friends is more important to me than size. 

'I’m just a regular size and I’d love to see more women like that cast in lead roles.’
