Star of The Only Way Is Essex Amy Childs has said she'll miss the show after quitting the upcoming third series. The brunette baby has reportedly left the show in order to appear on Celebrity Big Brother and cash in on her fame, after Essex bosses blocked her from taking part in the shows.

A show insider previously claimed: "The Only Way Is Essex is a community show. It stars TOWIE people, not Big Brother wannabes – it’s new and fresh. It’s bizarre that Amy wants to do a show that was axed last year for being out of date.

“It’s sad she’s leaving – viewers liked her. But no one’s bigger than the show.”


This week Amy confirmed: "I've had a brilliant time on TOWIE and loved every minute of it. I will really miss everyone. I so wanted to stay on, but I'm looking forward to what the future will bring and it's very exciting.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my loyal fans for their amazing support. I promise that I will let you know about all my exciting news as soon as I can."

It is rumoured that it won't be long until we see Amy on our screens again however, with the Essex star linked to a £200,000 deal to appear on this month's Celebrity Big Brother.

A spokesperson however was co y about the speculation, only saying: "We cannot confirm what her new deal is at this time. But it won't be the last of Amy Childs, that's for sure."

Celebrity Big Brother starts later this month on Channel 5. A new series of The Only Way Is Essex starts on ITV2 in September.
