OK! caught up with ex-Inbetweeners star Emily Atack ahead of the second series of her eponymous show. The 31-year-old straight talker is known for her girl next door storytelling and epic celeb impressions, but she let us in on a secret.
The star – who recently addressed her break up for the first time – admitted that she does occasionally get muddled up and forget which celeb she's impersonating.
She explained: "Because I was playing so many different characters, I’d forget who I was dressed as and do completely the wrong accent. I’d be dressed as Stacey Solomon and start doing Lorraine Kelly!"
Emily explained that Stacey – who has just welcomed her baby girl with fiancé Joe Swash – and Lorraine are "all people [she's] watched on TV forever" and went on to reveal how she masters impersonating them.
"When I’m on set getting my make-up done, I stick YouTube on to get them in my head," she told us.

In the new series, Emily doesn't shy away from telling it exactly how it is and is more than willing to recount her own silly stories in front of the nation.
However, she explains that this time around she tells us she'll be looking at her chosen topics in "more detail."
"Before, I spoke about going out and nights out," she said. "This series we’re looking at holidays and festivals. I want people to feel like they’re sitting with me in a pub chatting to me about slightly raucous, hilarious things."

She continued: "When I did the first series it was all a bit of a whirlwind. I felt like a kid with a new toy who was running around with it, being a bit mad.
"This time, it’s so different because I get to have another go at it and I was way more fixated on correcting certain things. I would never describe myself as a perfectionist in any way, shape or form, but this is the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to get bang on."
The stand-up meets sketch show sees Emily take centre stage as she relives past girls’ holidays, dancing the night away at festivals and relationships lessons.
The Emily Atack Show starts Thursday 7 October at 10pm on ITV2
