Emily Atack screams as she rides on Jamie Laing's back dressed as a schoolgirl
Emily Atack screamed in terror as Jamie Laing lifted her on his back while she was dressed as a school girl.Emily, 32, known for her role in The Inbetweeners, took part in a "back to school" episode of Celebrity Juice, and was told to fill her shirt with schoolbag essentials in a challenge.Host Keith Lemon then told Jamie to complete an obstacle course before giving him a rather peculiar request.Jamie was told to use Emily as a "human backpack", which stunned the other panellists - and even Megan McKenna was seen with her head in her hands at one point.At the start Keith told Jamie: "What you've got to do is use Emily as a human backpack."Fill her with the school things out of the desk, go along the track, over this bar here."Hop scotch and then under the limbo bar."Jamie then mounted Emily on his back as he completed a hopscotch challenge before going under a limbo.Emily was heard repeatedly shouting "oh my God!" as her face hit the limbo bar repeatedly while trying to get across the finish line.The pair then collapsed on the floor after finishing the challenge, and were all smiles and laughs while the audience erupted in hysterics.Last week's episode of the ITV2 show saw Emily look horrified after Laura Whitmore slapped soap star Will Mellor twice in the face during a challenge.Laura, who appeared to be dressed as Kylie Minogue from her Can't Get You Out of My Head video, was seen hurling obscenities before tossing a drink at Will and slapping him twice.Meanwhile, Emily looked sensational in a Katy Perry costume, donning a purple wig and mini dress from the singer's California Gurls video.Speaking previously about landing the gig, Emily said: “I would say Celebrity Juice is a real pinnacle moment for me, because it's

ITV viewers switch off new show The Games after just five minutes into broadcast
ITV has been gearing up to release their new sports challenge programme, which was aired for the first time on 9 May, but the show received complaints from some of its viewers.Presented by ITV icon Holly Willoughby and former cricketer Freddie Flintoff, the show sees celebrities compete against each other at a series of sporting tasks in an attempt to win points.Inspired by the Olympic games, the show is a reboot of a Channel 4 show with the same premise.It was set up to be ITV’s next prime time money maker, but some fans thought otherwise.The programme’s competitors include Strictly professional Kevin Clifton, Paddy McGuinness’ wife Christine, Love Island and TOWIE star Olivia Atwood and Spice Girl Mel B’s daughter Phoenix, among others.The show’s first event saw singer-songwriter Chelcee Grimes win at the women’s 100m race event.Chelcee, who has written songs for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Dua Lipa and The Saturdays, won by a close call with Phoenix, who was neck and neck.Grimes admitted that she knew Phoenix would be one to keep an eye on when she gave her winning speech, but some fans seemed distracted.Audiences took to Twitter to share their frustrations in the The Games hashtag and it appeared their thoughts were unanimous.One follower sarcastically tweeted: “Put The Games on, haven’t a clue who anybody is, turns off. That should be a challenge - see how fast you can change the channel over.”Another wrote: “Watching The Games and wondering: ‘What is the point in all this?’ Don’t recognise half these ‘celebrities’.”A disgruntled viewer called out the channel for making “celebrities do P.E.
