Amy Childs set to become a contestant on Channel 4 gameshow The Bank Job!

Amy ChildsFormer The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs is set to play Channel 4 gameshow The Bank Job for charity in its first ever celebrity special!

The news was revealed by Countdown co-host Rachel Riley, who said she'd be competing against Blur bassist Alex James and investigative journalist Donal MacIntyre as well as the ex-Celebrity Big Brother housemate.

Riley posted on her Twitter page: "I'm on The Bank Job Celeb Special on Friday, just found out my competition are Alex James, Donal MacIntyre & Amy Childs, I need to swot up!!"

Contestants on the show have to answer general knowledge questions to take money from safety deposit boxes inside a bank vault. They have to get out of the vault with as much money as they can before the time runs out.

We wish Amy the best of luck - with such tough competition, she's probably gonna need it!

See how she does on The Bank Job tomorrow at 9.00pm on Channel 4.
