Actor and presenter Emily Atack doesn't think being single should be seen as a negative thing.

She's told her Twitter followers that she isn't a fan of people asking her why she's not in a relationship, even if they have good intentions.

The Inbetweeners star wrote on her social media account: "People constantly say to me 'how are you still single!?' - I think they mean well & that’s cool. But being single shouldn’t be seen as negative! I became single by choice.

"Let’s stop making women feel like they’re failing if they aren’t in a relationship!"

The 30-year-old dated producer Rob Jowers for six months last year before the pair split in September.

Before they parted ways, Atack revealed the two had met in a bar one night and that she was "very proud" they had met in an "organic" scenario as opposed to social media.

The I'm A Celebrity runner-up said back in October that it had been a "very tough time" after the break up, but went on to tell OK! Magazine that she was still hoping for a "happy ending".

Atack is well known for speaking candidly about her life, including the torment she faced in her youth at the hands of bullies.

Back in October, the star appeared on This Morning where she told of how a group had put up a poster of her face around the local villages and encouraged others to prank call her.

"I think people think that's funny. I've never had that in me," she said. "I can't understand how anyone would want someone to feel that way.”
