Emily Atack has claimed that she was pressured for sex by a former colleague who exposed himself in a hotel room during a terrifying ordeal that left her in tears.

The Inbetweeners star opened up about the horrifying experience in her new memoir Are We There Yet?: To indignity . . . and Beyond!, revealing that the incident occurred at a wrap party for an unnamed project.

Emily was on a night out with the colleague, who she refers to as ‘Dave’ when they ran out of alcohol. She then claims that he told her there was more alcohol in his room before trying it on with the actress, who was in a relationship at the time.

She explained: “I was drunk. I wasn’t single. I was with someone at the time, so I had no intention of doing anything with anybody.

“All of a sudden I turned round and Dave is standing there, in the room with his d--k out. I froze. I remember saying, drunkenly, ‘No’, but I didn’t have a clue what to do.”

Emily was only let out of the room after she kissed Dave out of desperation and revealed ‘she cried her eyes out all day’ after returning home.
