Emily Atack leaves Killing Eve fans in stitches with hilarious Villanelle impression on new sketch show
KILLING Eve fans couldn't get enough of Emily Atack's sketch poking fun at iconic assassin Villanelle.
The beloved actress and comedian launched The Emily Atack show on ITV2 this week and received rave reviews from audiences as she parodied popular celebrities and TV shows.
Among them was Jodie Comer's Killing Eve character Villanelle, famed for her quirky sense of humour, love of fashion and of course, her penchant for murder.
Imagining how Villanelle would run a fashion channel on YouTube, Atack donned a voluminous pink dress – a nod to one of the Russian's most iconic outfits.
"People always ask me what to wear on first dates and I tell them I always dress to kill – obvious," she begins, with an eerily accurate accent.
"Always wear red, and when you’re on your way back from your day job they won’t see blood stains on your clothes – clever huh?" she goes on.
"Accessorize with belt to accentuate the waist. Belt also doubles as a weapon… anything can be used as a weapon if you use your imagination."
She continues: "Finally, never wear your coat inside, otherwise you won’t feel the benefit when you go outside.
"My mother told me that. She also told me how to skin rabbit and make blade with spoon."
Ending the skit, she signs off: "Click here to subscribe. Click here if you’d like me to kill a member of your family. And remember, nothing looks as good as dead feels."
Fans took to social media in stitches and congratulated Emily on her performance.
"Honestly if my eyes were shut I would've though that was Villanelle – spot on!" one Twitter user wrote, alongside a string of laughing emojis.
"I would 100% subscribe to this channel [laughing my ass off]," a second chimed in.
A third wrote: "Emily Atack is a LEGEND! Loving this Killing Eve sketch."
While a fourth chimed in: "Wetting myself at The Emily Atack Show – had no idea she was so funny."
The Emily Atack shows airs Wednesdays on ITV2 at 10pm.
Killing Eve seasons 1-3 are available to stream on BBC iPlayer now.
