Most celebrities think that entering the Celebrity Big Brother house once is enough, but not for former The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs who has admitted that she would like to return to the show.
Having decided to leave TOWIE for Celebrity Big Brother in 2011, the reality TV star has claimed that she wouldn’t mind going back, but this time with her beau in tow.
According to Female First, the star said:
“I would love to go back into the house with David – I think it would be such a laugh.”
Speaking of the rumoured housemates, which include Claire Richards from Steps and US reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, Amy continued:
“I’ve heard Heidi and Spencer Pratt from ‘The Hills’ might be going in. I think it will be really interesting to see what their relationship is like inside the house. I’m sure they spend all of their time together anyway, but it must be weird with strangers around, and, of course, all of those cameras!”
Showing support for her fellow Essex native and former X Factor finalist Rylan Clark, Amy added in her New! magazine column:
“I’ve also heard Rylan Clark is heading into the house. I’ve said it before, but I think he’d be fab!”
The new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off tonight. Will you be watching? We will!
Amy Childs has backed Cheryl Fergison to provide the comedy on the new series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.
The former ‘EastEnders’ actress – who departed Albert Square last month after almost five years when her alter ego Heather Trott was murdered – has signed a £175,000 deal to take part in the next series of the fly-on-the-wall show and Amy can’t wait for Cheryl to show her fun side on TV.
She said: ”I was so happy to hear Cheryl Fergison is going on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’. I loved her when I met her on ‘Loose Women’. She’s going to provide the comedy in the house, without a doubt!”
Cheryl was signed up for the show after impressing producers with her sense of humour.
A source previously said: ”Her character of downtrodden Heather is so different from the actual actress.
”Cheryl is hilarious. She’s got a really great sense of humour and producers wanted to sign her up the minute she was written out of ‘EastEnders’.”
Channel 5 have upped the budget for the next series of the show in order to attract more star names and Cheryl’s fee is one of the biggest they have ever paid out.
They are planning another series of the celebrity show in August/September after the contest was a huge ratings hit earlier in the year, when ‘Loose Women’ star Denise Welch beat the likes of Michael Madsen, Frankie Cocozza, Kirk Norcross, Natalie Cassidy, Gareth Thomas and Nicola McLean to be crowned winner.
The 21-year-old Essex socialite’s own reality show It’s All About Amy failed to draw big audiences and was not renewed for a second season.
However, Amy insists the show was not ‘axed’, as reports suggest, and was only ever intended to run for eight episodes.
She said: ‘Lots of fans have been asking me to go back [to TOWIE] because they miss me, which is sweet, but unfortunately there is no going back.
‘My show wasn’t axed – it was always only going to be an eight-part series.
‘The truth is, I have some big things coming up, including two new TV shows, which have been confirmed, but I can’t talk about them now.
‘As soon as I can, I’ll let you all know – and hopefully that will put an end to the rumours.’
With reality TV seemingly behind her, it is possible the beautician may move to a presenting role, as is the case with former TOWIE co-star Mark Wright – now fronting Take Me Out: The Gossip on ITV2.
Speaking of the recent controversy over The Only Way Is Essex producers’ pay, Amy added in her new! magazine column: ‘I read that the producers of TOWIE are asking the cast for 15 per cent of their earnings. I think it’s really unfair.
‘The cast make their money from endorsements and personal appearances at clubs, so it seems mean they might have to give some of those earnings to the producers – especially as they already work long hours filming.’
Amy Childs has denied reports that she wants to return to The Only Way Is Essex after her solo reality show flopped.
Sources had claimed that the beautician was keen to up her profile following the disappointing ratings for her Channel 5 programme It’s All About Amy.
“Amy would love to rejoin. She desperately misses TOWIE,” an insider told The Sun. “She was always one of the big stars so it makes sense for her to go back.
“Her show was a complete flop on Channel 5 and no one seemed to care, so her profile was knocked.”
However, Childs refuted the story on Twitter this morning (February 10) and stated that It’s All About Amy had always been intended to run for just eight episodes.
“The Sun reported I am desperate to go back on TOWIE, this is a lie also,” she wrote. “I have some really exciting projects coming up in the future.
“Sorry guys had to be said, just upset that there (sic) wrote such lies, always wanna bring you down #imatoughcookie.”
Childs – who previously described leaving TOWIE as the “best thing [she'd] ever done” – is to appear in the new series of Let’s Dance For Sport Relief in March and has been linked to Channel 5 dating show The Bachelorette.
She has also backed cousin Harry Derbidge’s plan to create a rival reality show to TOWIE.
Looks like The Only Way is back to Essex for Amy Childs – if the residents will have her, that is.
The ex-TOWIE star’s reality TV show is being axed after just ONE series.
It’s All About Amy – a programme which made watching paint dry seem like a televisual masterpiece – has been given the chop after eight episodes.
Beautician Amy, 21, was the first cast member of The Only Way Is Essex to ditch the ITV2 series and go it alone.
She was given her own series on Channel 5, but it proved a ratings flop. It’s All About Amy opened to a measly 506,000 viewers and slumped to 300,000 – down 1.55 million on TOWIE’s average audience.
A source said: “The fly-on-the-wall format didn’t really work because there wasn’t a lot going on. TOWIE at least has a few different cast members, but watching Amy drive to TV studios and train her dogs was just tedious.”
Riveting episodes in the series, which ends tonight, have included Amy attending the launch of management buddy Peter Andre’s coffee shop in East Grinstead, Amy mopping up dog urine and Amy being given a lesson in I.T.
Her Channel 5 show started off at 10pm but was shunted back to an 11pm slot midway through the series.
Last week, Amy seemed to anticipate her programme coming to an end.
She said: “I love the TV show and I’m really proud of myself.
“If there isn’t another series then I’ve had the best time.”
Well, that’s something.
But the demise of Amy’s show is ominous for many other former TOWIE “stars” who thought they might have more success by leaving the Bafta-winning docudrama, which returns for a new run on Sunday night.
Harry Derbidge was axed after repeatedly appearing in cousin Amy’s spin-off show, and Kirk Norcross quit to take part in Celebrity Big Brother.
Mark Wright has so far achieved the greatest success post-TOWIE, coming second on I’m A Celebrity and landing a presenting spot on ITV2’s Take Me Out spin-off show, The Gossip.
A Channel 5 spokesperson said: “The show was commissioned as an eight-part series looking at Amy Childs’ life in the period immediately after her successful stint in the Big Brother house.
“We are currently talking to Amy about other opportunities on the channel.”
Amy’s spokeswoman also insisted she is working on a major new project for the summer.
We don’t know for sure if this is fully true. Nothing has been confirmed but it is all over the media today. We love Amy’s show and hope this is 100% untrue.

Amy Childs made the vajazzle famous in her bright pink beauty salon on The Only Way Is Essex.
However, the reality star has admitted that the salon was fake and was never actually open for business.
The 21-year-old admitted that the parlour was built by producers and was only used during filming.
She told Weekend: “Can I tell you a big secret? My beauty salon in TOWIE wasn’t real – it was all fake and set up in Mum and Dad’s garage.
“I can’t believe people didn’t know.”
She added: “The salon where I was working when I started on the show didn’t want to be part of it.”
Childs decided to leave the programme after the second series and take part in Celebrity Big Brother.
She has since fulfilled her wish of owning a salon. The Essex lass opened Amy Childs’ Salon in Brentwood in November.
The salon is currently at the centre of her new reality show It’s All About Amy.
She said: “I can’t believe I have my own beauty salon.
“It’s a dream come true.”
Amy Childs has revealed she has no regrets about going solo since quitting The Only Way Is Essex, proving that she has a head for business, making significantly more last year than any of her other reality co-stars.
The reality show beauty told Mr Paparazzi: “Leaving TOWIE was the best thing I’ve ever done. I have my own reality show and so much going on that I’ve never regretted leaving for a second.”
Since saying goodbye to her TOWIE co-stars, Amy has opened a beauty salon in her hometown of Brentwood, appeared in last year’s Celebrity Big Brother and now has her own successful reality show on Channel 5, It’s All About Amy.
Tipped to earn over £10m this year, Amy is far and away the most successful star from the television phenomenon, and is now so busy, she admits she has no time to watch the reality show that first made her famous.
Former co-stars Mark Wright and Kirk Norcross are also hot on her heels branching out into other reality shows.
Mark Wright was a runner up in the last series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, and is now presenting Take Me Out spin-off show, Take Me Out: The Gossip.
Meanwhile Kirk Norcross is currently wowing the nation in tiny gold shorts on this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.
Prepare to be shocked, amazed and annoyed in equal measures as The Sun has compiled a list of what The Only Way Is Essex crew have earned so far.
Former TOWIE star Amy Childs comes in at number one after pocketing £1.5m for her recent stint on Celebrity Big Brother, while Mark Wright is a close second with a cool £1m to his name, while Sam Faiers is third with £750k.
Kirk Norcross and Lauren Goodger come in at fourth and fifth having earned £400k each, Joey Essex and Lydia Bright are sixth and seventh with £350k, while Lauren Pope, Billie Faiers and Jess Wright are 8th, 9th and 10th.
Er, what about Arg? Guess he must be 11th.
And if those numbers weren’t enough to make you jealous just wait until you hear this; Amy looks set to rake in a whopping £10million this year, while Mark has a predicted income of £9million coming his way.
