Keith Lemon may have let slip that Inbetweeners star Emily Atack could be set to join the panel of Celebrity Juice.

Appearing on Loose Women, the comedian, real name Leigh Francis, refused to name the replacement for Fearne Cotton, who recently revealed she was quitting the show.

However, he did say that a replacement has been chosen, but they are now trying to get filming dates for the show to line up.

Atack, recently seen on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, is poised to begin a new comedy tour in April, taking in dates around the UK, which would tally with his remarks about scheduling.

She’s also been rumoured as a possible replacement, alongside the likes of Paddy McGuinness and Stacey Solomon.

To add to that, Lemon and Atack were spotted doing some filming in the window of a bed shop in central London last week.

A passerby told The Sun: “Emily and Keith were in a bed shop together and were messing about right in front of the window so everyone could see them.

“They had two cameramen with them – one inside and one outside – who were filming their antics.”

Cotton announced her departure from the show on Instagram in December.
