Amy dons a bikini to do the washing up

She said last last week her family had always hired help to do the household chores.

But the Big Brother house appears to have brought Amy Childs down to earth a little bit.

Realising quickly that the housemates wouldn’t be privy to certain luxuries like staff, the former Only Way Is Essex star has pulled her weight in keeping the place clean.

And she even joined paparazzo Darryn Lyons in telling of cheeky twins Jedward for not helping out yesterday.

But she didn’t let up on the glamour, opting for a customised Dolly Boutique purple bikini to do the dishes, not worrying about being splattered by hot water.

The 21-year-old’s two-piece had the words ‘Miss Childs’ spelled out in diamantes on it.
