Big Brother 2012: Amy Childs blasts Ashleigh for 'giving Essex a bad name'!

Amy Childs

The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs has hit out at Big Brother housemate Ashleigh for giving Essex a bad name!

In a rather ironic rant, Amy claimed that Ashleigh's antics in the Big Brother house aren't good for the county.

And she even suggested that TOWIE, which Amy quit last year, did good for the image of Essex.

"Obviously we've done TOWIE and we're looking good on TOWIE," Amy said in an interview with DigitalSpy.

She explained: "We wanna look good on telly and Ashleigh come about and she was swearing all the time.

"We have a bad name for Essex anyway and I don't think we need someone like Ashleigh to really make people think more bad of it."

After quitting TOWIE last year, Amy appeared in the first series of Celebrity Big Brother last summer.

She was then given her own reality show by Channel 5, but it was axed after only one series after a run of bad ratings.
