Oh my god. I met my first Big Brother 2013 housemate this weekend. I was driving into Elstree Studios to watch Your Face when who do I see but Wolfy! I just thought, I have got to get a picture for my column! She was so friendly and we had a hug and a chat.
Obviously it could have been a bit uncomfortable as what I said last week about Wolfy but we had a cuddle and she was really nice.
She even tweeted later that she just met me and I seemed really nice!
I feel for her because it is hard in there. And you could see it really got to her in the end and her character was just too big for it. She was finding it too hard to cope. But on the outside she was lovely, she was really quirky and we had pure banter! She said we could do a show and call it Essex Meets Cornwall! How funny is that?!
Anyway, back to the column! I don’t know if Callum and Charlie are coming and going but let’s face it sexual chemistry can be hard when your mum is watching from the other room.
Dexter is really playing a very good game telling Charlie he really likes her when I thought he liked Hazel. I can’t keep up with him! But I have to say I am so excited for him to be back in the house.
He’s not trying for Gina, but he is playing a very good game. He still wants people to keep him in.
Every Saturday I have been doing a poll in my boutique about who is going to win and it seems everyone loves the twins.
I think it is because the twins are just normal. A lot of people who win big brother are just normal people.
I could not stop cringing about Daley’s girlfriend going on Big Brother’s Big Mouth – she was in a right state. It was like something out of Jeremy Kyle, I really felt sorry for her.
And now Daley and Hazel are together with one bed, something is bound to happen.
I mean hello? BB what are you doing? OH MY GOD. I get it five weeks, people get carried away in the moment but Hazel, this is not going to look good on the outside world. If I knew someone had a girlfriend I wouldn’t go near them.
People don’t like that, girls don’t like girls do that. She’s just got to be a bit careful. I have a feeling when she watched the video, she is going to feel mortified.
I am loving Gina at the moment. What I love about Gina is her ability to get people to change their mind about her, she could be a winner.
In my eyes Gina is a potential fav to win and I love this Dexter and Gina chemistry.
Even Dan has calmed down a little bit now. I get the impression on the live shows he heard how much he was getting booed and decided to do something about it. He has changed his tactics.
I would have kept Wolfy in, however now she has gone, you can see the personality of all the others.
My prediction for the week ahead is Daley and Hazel getting it on – they won’t be able to resist each other. And I bet the public will hate Hazel for it, even though Daley is as much to blame – and he has the girlfriend!
When Dexter and Gina were told they were not going home, the look on their faces was priceless. Dexter’s face was a picture, he was so emotional – he looked like he had won Wimbledon.
And their seclusion in the other house has meant we have seen just how good Dexter and Gina are together – I love them two, they should do a double act they work so well together. I just can’t wait for them to go back into the house, Wolfy thinks she is safe because Dexter and Gina “left” – think again love.
When they go back in everyone will be totally shocked – and I can’t wait to see their faces.
The twins (who are my new favourites to win btw) were already saying stuff about them like they had gone forever, but they can get away with it I think because they are the twins.
I just can’t believe how much I have changed my mind about Wolfy – I thought she was great when she first walked into the house and everyone was cheering her on. Now when they said her name on live TV on Friday people were chanting “Get Wolfy out” – those boos will be hard to deal with when she comes out.
I think she is an attention seeker, she keeps saying she is all that and she has not been nice. She might she having a mid life crisis, she has changed so much.
Speaking of nasty Dan is really winding me up. I think he is very opinionated and needs to chill out. He is so rude, the way he looks at people, like they are a piece of dirt on the bottom of his shoes. If he wants to get further on Big Brother he is going to have relax.
Now I did say I wanted a romance but I just don’t think it will happen. I thought there may be a romance with Charlie and Callum – how wrong was I? She doesn’t fancy him, she doesn’t socialise with him. It’s a bit sad really as they do get on.
But Daley and Hazel! There is a lot of flirting going on, I am not sure they want to get into a relationship, it could be playing up to the cameras – thinking they will get more airtime if they flirt it up. Or it could be boredom, when I was in Big Brother I didn’t fancy Lucien (Corrie star Laviscount) but I flirted with him, it’s really dull in there and there’s nothing wrong with a bit of a flirt.
There was a bit of a surprise this week, I said I liked Sophie and how surprised was I that she did an impression of me and even said how much she admired me! She said I had done really well for myself and that is really flattering. She doesn’t say much but when she does she is really funny. I really like her
I know better than most how hard it is in there but you can’t be someone else for 24 hours a day after three weeks, this is it for these guys.
Although Charlie’s mum, whatever her name is, – I just don’t get it, what is she there for? I just think if you put me and my mum in there it would be a very different story.
We would be having a laugh, having some banter, unlike Jacqui who takes herself a bit too seriously.
Things to start kicking off, I want a blazing row. I want a row when Dexter and Gina come back in – and I don’t think I will be let down as they put Dan and Wolfy in the jail, how humiliated would you feel?
Also I want to see it get a bit more emotional in there, I want a bit more of snog, even a random snog!
The twins snogging Hazel, that would be fun! I will leave that mental image in your minds, until next time Big Brother fans!
Hello Big Brother fans,
Sorry my column is a little late this week! But let me tell you I am seriously loving this series. I just have a few demands: ROMANCE and MORE ROMANCE!
This week I thought that Jemima was the right person to go, she wasn’t my favourite person at all.
But do you know what, Dexter is growing on me, he is very entertaining and has got pure banter – I wouldn’t maind hanging out with him – nevermind him taking my picture!
Jemima and Dexter’s argument was ridiculous, she thought she wasn’t going anywhere – which is stupid, it just shows, you never know.
Dexter has changed so much in my eyes over the week, he is becoming so random I think I am totally on his side now, a girl can change her mind!
Speaking of mind changes, I am changing my mind totally on Dan, although he is an Essex boy and I know I should be on his side (which I am, but only for the postcode), he isn’t the lovely bloke I thought he was.
The twins are my ultimate favourites now, honestly they are brilliant, they are getting more sure of themselves which I love but also I think they are going to go on a real journey in there – and we all love a journey. How can I put it, they are pure random.
Speaking of a journey, how far has Gina come?
I know it’s not majorly far but she was doing so well. Until, that is, she called for her lawyer!
How embarrassing is that? She mugged herself off with that. That’s a journey to public shame.
But we don’t want a journey, shameful or otherwise, we really want a romance.
Callum and Charlie are my biggest hopes. I have made no secret about it, I want a Big Brother couple and these guys are the two to do it.
There is a bit of a flirt up between them two – but who wants to get it on with their mum watching – and she’s not just watching it on TV – it’s worse, she’s in the house! Shut up.
Now we are in the third week I am really addicted, because three weeks in there – mark my words – it’s hard to be fake.
We are seeing the real people – but it’s funny because you have no idea what people on the outside are thinking of you.
I tell you when I was in there Jedward annoyed me so much – but they were loved outside! You people may like them but imagine living with those two!
I have to end with a word on my old fav Wolfy – seriously I wake up and feel bloated, she totally over-reacted to Charlie.
It wasn’t great. I know she’s frustrated in there but she is not showing much for the sisterhood with her comments.
Although I can’t quite finish without speaking about flash Larry Dexter – he may have been a bot of chancer but I love watching him, he is just totally random – compared to Hazel and Sam who have not made anything of themselves.
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.”
