JACK Grealish's childhood sweetheart Sasha Atwood is said to be "devastated" after his secret dates with Emily Atack.
The Sun revealed the England and Man City superstar, 26, has met up with the Inbetweeners favourite at her home and a hotel.
The Mail on Sunday reports that Emily, 31, has now told besotted Jack that he needs to choose between her and his girlfriend Sasha.
It goes on to say that the model and social media influencer, who has known him since school, is thought to be "devastated".
Sasha, 25, is reported to have only found out after England's 5-0 win over Albania on Friday night.
The Sun revealed last week that the pair had 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, 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.
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.”
The footballer, 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.
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.
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."
