The actress – who shot to fame as Charlotte Hinchcliffe on The Inbetweeners – also said she is ‘blamed’ for the shocking things that have happened to her.
Emily told BBC Radio 4: ‘My whole life, I’ve been sexually harassed, in the streets, I’ve been flashed, it’s happened since I was 10.
‘Now I’m sexually harassed online every day, I find it really tough.’
She admitted that she decided to take part in her documentary, Emily Atack: Sexual Harassment & Me, to talk about the implications, claiming there is ‘no accountability’ for online sexual harassment.

‘I’m very damaged by the things that have happened to me, I’m constantly being blamed for it all,’ she added.
Emily also claimed she is ‘constantly’ told she is ‘to blame’ for the harassment because she is ‘sexually liberated’, saying she wants to combat such thinking in her documentary.
Speaking of the sexy lads’ mags photoshoots which she posed for at the height of her Inbetweeners fame, Emily said she is proud of them and said other people took the ‘joy’ away from them for her.
Emily has often been open about her experiences of sexual harassment, even meeting MPs in parliament amid the propose bill to make cyberflashing an illegal offence.

Her new documentary, Emily Atack: Sexual Harassment & Me, will see the star discuss her experience with her family, while she’ll also speak to some of the men who’ve sent her explicit content in a bid to look at the psychology of their behaviour.
The BBC 2 film will follow the Celebrity Juice star as she tries to comprehend why she’s harassed on a daily basis, with Emily remarking how she’s had to endure being targeted from ‘a very young age’.
Emily previously said of the documentary: ‘With this documentary, I am hoping to find answers to the many questions I’ve been asking myself my entire life, and I hope it will go on to help thousands of others too.’

Back in October, Emily revealed that some of the trolls who sexually harassing her online are fathers who ‘tuck their children into bed’ before sending her rape threats.
The TV star revealed that she receives hundreds of terrifying messages from anonymous users daily – including from one troll who was able to describe the cushions on her sofa before threatening to rape and murder her.
She admitted the stream of horrific abuse has left her feeling depressed, anxious and at times scared for her life, revealing her home has previously been broken into but that police enquiries ‘hit a dead end’.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, she said she wonders how her tormentors can ‘sleep at night’ knowing they’ve sent such horrific messages.
‘Some of these men are married with children. They’ve got daughters in their profile pictures and things like that,’ she said.
‘How can you sleep at night knowing you’ve just tucked your daughters into bed, probably helped them with their homework, and then you’re sneakily going onto your phone [and sending sexual abuse].’
Emily confessed that threatening to call the police only encourages her trolls, and while she has considered telling their wives about the harassment, she never has for the sake of their children.
