Amy Childs, Harry Derbidge to star in British version of Paris Hilton's The Simple Life

Amy Childs Celebrity Big BrotherAmy Childs and Harry Derbidge are making a British version of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie reality show The Simple Life for Channel 5, it is claimed.

The former Only Way Is Essex stars will face several 'tough challenges' that normal people complete daily in a new series named 'The Simpleton Life'.

According to The Sun, the cousins have already worked shifts in a hectic Domino's Pizza kitchen, with other tasks set to include deep sea fishing in Scotland's Outer Hebrides islands, and a day in a Welsh coal mine.

In a nod to Paris and Nicole's show, which ran for five seasons between 2003 and 2007, they will also experience life on an American ranch.

A source told the newspaper: "The show will be just like The Simple Life but, dare I say it, even more ridiculous.

"Amy and Harry are not exactly known for their ability to do everyday tasks so it's a car crash waiting to happen. In fairness, they are quite funny as a duo and bosses are hoping their daft chemistry will keep people entertained."

The Simpleton Life will be Amy's latest project for Channel 5 after It's All About Amy, her own fly-on-the-wall show, tanked in the ratings. She also came fourth in the broadcaster's first series of Celebrity Big Brother last year.

Fellow ex-Big Brother housemate Nikki Grahame starred in similar series Princess Nikki in 2006, in which she worked as a binman, mountain rescuer and a rugby player.
