Pals say Man City’s Jack, 26 — in a relationship with Sasha Attwood — has been calling Emily, 31, almost every day.

One said: “Their friendship is the talk of the dressing room.”

Smitten Jack acts like “a puppy dog” around Emily, say pals.

The pair hit it off on secret dates and have been swapping texts for the past six weeks.

The friend added: “Emily watched Jack in the Euros and thought he was fit. And for his part, Jack has been a fan of hers since she starred as Charlotte ‘Big Jugs’ Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners.

“They started DMing on Instagram before swapping numbers, and taking it on to WhatsApp and FaceTime.

“Jack’s been calling her almost every day and has been pretty open about it.

“They’ve become really good mates, are FaceTiming loads and he’s like a little puppy dog around her.

“It’s very sweet. They have a real laugh together.”

Jack, who has been on and off with childhood sweetheart Sasha Attwood, first swapped numbers with Emily in September.

They have met at least twice since — once at Manchester’s five-star Lowry hotel on October 18 ahead of City’s Champions League victory against Belgium’s Club Brugge.

Emily was working nearby in Salford for her sell-out tour Emily Atack Has Left The Group.

The second time saw Jack head to the actress’s home in the capital.

The pal revealed: “He’s been to her house in North London.

“Loads of footballers fancy Emily so their friendship is quite the talk of the dressing room. And obviously Jack is a handsome boy, so I’m sure Emily’s girlfriends will be jealous too!”

A friend added last night: “They’re getting very close but obviously haven’t crossed a line. Jack is very focussed on his career and Emily is a fun, popular girl who is incredibly busy work-wise at the moment.”

At present, Emily, who has 1.7million Instagram followers is following Jack but he is not following her back.

Jack, who became the Premier League’s first £100million signing after his move from Aston Villa to Manchester City in the summer, has been dating YouTube star Sasha.

The pair met as teenagers at school in Solihull and have been on and off throughout their 20s.

Sasha, who is signed to Model Management, took to Instagram last week to wish Jack a happy 26th birthday — and celebrate the couple’s anniversary.

She shared a picture of them watching tear-jerker movie The Notebook, with rose petals dotted around, candles, jars of sweets, plates of home-made doughnuts and jewellery of their initials.

However, in August Jack was ­spotted on celebrity dating app Raya — prompting questions about his relationship status with Sasha.

His profile was active after City’s 1-0 loss to ­Tottenham Hotspur — informing potential matches on the app that he was in the capital.

It stated: “Visiting London . . . from Birmingham.”

And in the summer fans were quick to spot the popular sportsman had been “liking” Love Island contestant Lillie Haynes’ sexy snaps on Instagram — before removing the evidence days later.

In March he was caught “sliding into the DMs” of another Love Islander, Natalia Zoppa.

Her angry boyfriend Hass Saleh saw the message and publicly released it on a TikTok video which went viral.

Good-looking Jack has 4.4million followers on Instagram and boasts several lucrative endorsement deals with companies including Boohoo, EA Sports and Nike.

He played against Italy in the Euros final in July, with Sasha cheering him on in the crowd.

Speaking on her YouTube channel afterwards, Sasha revealed she had been sent 200 death threats a day during the tournament.

She recalled: “They said, ‘I hope you get cancer and die’ or ‘I hope your whole family dies’.

“They say, ‘I hope the next time you’re in the car you crash it and die, I hope after Wembley you die’.

“I was receiving 200 death threats a day. I’m not exaggerating when I say that. I had so many messages every single day. I still get them now, all day every day.”

Immediately after the tournament, Jack flew to Mykonos where he partied with Love Islander Josh Denzel.

From there he whisked Sasha to Dubrovnik, Croatia, where they were pictured together.

Jack, who earns around £250,000 a week, is bubbled up with England for the Albania game, and against San Marino on Monday.

Yesterday Sasha, 25, posted selfies with Jordan Pickford’s wife Megan at London’s Corinthia hotel.

Emily, daughter of actress Kate Robbins, made her name as Charlotte Hinchcliffe in cult E4 comedy The Inbetweeners in 2008.

In 2018 she was runner-up behind Harry Redknapp in I’m A Celebrity. She has since fronted documentaries as well as performing in her own one-woman show.

Her famous exes include One Direction’s Harry Styles, McFly’s Dougie Poynter and comedian Seann Walsh.

She split from her last boyfriend Jude Taylor in August and recently said: “I am single. Being single isn’t always a happy thing, but I definitely think it isn’t a bad thing.

“And it shouldn’t be seen as something that’s shameful if you’re in your 30s and single. As I say, being single isn’t always great, but sometimes it’s really great. So yeah, I’m fine.”

A spokesman for Emily declined to comment last night.
