Emily Atack is set to address her fertility worries in an upcoming episode of her new documentary series.

As part of Emily Atack: Adulting, the former I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! contestant underwent a medical test, while admitting that she often worries she may never have children.

“My whole life I have assumed if I met someone I could have babies straight away,” she said on the show. “But what if I can’t? I have got to be honest, if they come back and say something is wrong, I will be absolutely devastated.”

Fans of The Inbetweeners star will have to tune in to find out the results.

Describing herself as “a member of the quarter-life crisis club,” the 29-year-old discussed how important having a family is to her.

“I’m worrying that I’ll get to 32, still not anywhere close to having kids.

“I used to look at my Grandma Betty when she was alive and think, ‘God, she’s surrounded with all of us”. She’s got so many grandkids... so many kids. That’s what I want.

“I don’t want to be a lonely old person,” she added.

Atack - who is currently dating film producer Rob Jowers - told Metro that she’s been doing a bit of “soul-searching” recently.

“I feel like I’m getting to a point where I’m becoming a little bit more stable with who I am,” she said. “I’m hoping to get just a little bit more self-acceptance.”

Emily Atack: Adulting premieres on 26 June at 9pm on Channel W. Each episode is set to focus on different subjects from dating and body image issues to parenthood and reliance on social media.

Ahead of the show’s debut, Federico Ruiz, Head of Factual Entertainment at Firecracker Films said: “We are beyond excited to be working with the talented rising star that is Emily and to be teaming up once again with the fantastic team at W.
