Amy Childs slams TOWIE

Share article:

Amy Childs has branded the "Only Way is Essex" too "scripted" and claims the current cast are just looking for fame.

The 28-year-old star was one of the original faces on the reality show when it first hit screens in 2010 but she thinks it has now changed beyond recognition

because the cast are more aware of the opportunities it can bring.

She said: "I was on the show from day one, I feel that, me being honest, it's totally changed. I feel like a lot of it is scripted now.

"People know what they're getting themselves into. They've got managements before they go on the show.

"We were all planning to go back to work. But look, people still love it."

And Amy dismissed comparisons between herself and current cast member Chloe Brockett, insisting there can never be anyone like the "original" stars.

She told The Sun newspaper: "No, definitely not. There can only be one Amy. That's all I can say.

"It's amazing they compare me to her. If I met her I'd talk to her. I just think the original cast, no one can ever be like us. They've got their own personalities."

But despite her comments and the fact she rarely watches the show these days, the mother-of-two still feels like she is "a part" of "TOWIE".

Asked if she still tunes in, she said: "I don't. I always have it on catch up. I think I've got like a hundred recordings now of "TOWIE".

"What with me having the kids and everything, I'm literally, no joke, I'm in bed by nine o'clock.

"When you've got the kids all day and like working, I'm in bed at half nine.

"I'm still on my Instagram, see all the goss, I live in Brentwood, I always go down the high street, see some of the people. I still feel a part of the show even though I'm not in it."
