That doesn't mean, however, that she didn't make the most of single life before settling down with new boyfriend Jack - Emily had a fling with One Direction's Harry Styles, and admits it for the first time to Reveal.
"We had a nice little fling. We were never boyfriend and girlfriend. I think that's the first time I've ever admitted to what it was, because I've always just shrugged it off before," the 23-year-old tells us.
"But I think it's best to clear it up. So, yeah, we had a short-lived thing that was just a bit of fun. Then we went off in our different directions."
"Harry and I had a laugh. It was brief, but fun, and then we moved on. We haven't spoken in a while… he's one of the most famous people in the world now."
OMG! Emily and ladies man Harry, 19, were linked early last year, with rumours circulating that Harry was totally smitten with the Inbetweeners babe, but Emily had insisted that the pair were just friends. Until now!
Things fizzled out for the couple early last summer as Harry embarked on a world tour with 1D, and Emily's since hooked up with hunky model Jack Vacher, 19. She clearly loves a younger man.
Emily tells us: "'We're taking things slowly and we're just enjoying it."
She says of her amazing bikini body: "I have the obvious female hang-ups, where I go: 'Oh god, my bum's a bit squidgy!' But I've learnt to accept my body shape and I'm fairly happy with the way I am.
"I quite like being a bit squidgy around the edges and I love my food. A huge part of a holiday for me is going out for a really nice dinner, so I would never deprive myself of that just to lose a few inches off my bum... ever."
