Amy Childs denies The Only Way Is Essex return

Amy Childs has denied reports that she wants to return to The Only Way Is Essex after her solo reality show flopped.

Sources had claimed that the beautician was keen to up her profile following the disappointing ratings for her Channel 5 programme It’s All About Amy.

“Amy would love to rejoin. She desperately misses TOWIE,” an insider told The Sun. “She was always one of the big stars so it makes sense for her to go back.

“Her show was a complete flop on Channel 5 and no one seemed to care, so her profile was knocked.”

However, Childs refuted the story on Twitter this morning (February 10) and stated that It’s All About Amy had always been intended to run for just eight episodes.

“The Sun reported I am desperate to go back on TOWIE, this is a lie also,” she wrote. “I have some really exciting projects coming up in the future.

“Sorry guys had to be said, just upset that there (sic) wrote such lies, always wanna bring you down #imatoughcookie.”

Childs – who previously described leaving TOWIE as the “best thing [she’d] ever done” – is to appear in the new series of Let’s Dance For Sport Relief in March and has been linked to Channel 5 dating show The Bachelorette.

She has also backed cousin Harry Derbidge’s plan to create a rival reality show to TOWIE.
