Oh shut up! It seems like so long ago that Amy Childs was gracing our screens with her presence in The Only Way Is Essex and we can’t help but be glued to her every move in her latest show, It’s All About Amy. We caught up with the Queen of the vajazzle at her cousin Harry Debidge’s jewellery launch party to have a natter.
Have you been watching Big Brother and what do you think?
Yeah, really good, I’m supporting Kirk and Nicola and they’re doing really well. Nicola’s obviously my friend, she’s got the same management as me, and Kirk is my ex-boyfriend, but listen we’re really good friends and yeah I’m supporting Kirk 100%.
Do you think Kirk can win?
Definitely, I think he’s an amazing person, he’s got banter, yeah definitely. And you know what, when you get two boys together (Kirk and Frankie) and you’ve got gorgeous girls around… you know what you’re going to get. But yeah Kirk’s doing really well and I’m really supporting him.
What are your thoughts on the Playboy twins and how they compare with Jedward who you were in the house with?
I think Jedward are really lovely. The (Playboy) twins, they’re lovely but I think they’re quite bitchy and they don’t really need to be. But I love Jedward, Jedward are not bitchy, they are what they are, and I don’t know - I can’t work the twins out.
How do you think this year’s Celebrity Big Brother compares with last year when you were in the house?
I think my house was a bit older, there weren’t a lot of bitching. I’m so glad that I did my house over this house because there’s a lot of bitching and I’m not really a bitchy person. I can’t really be bothered with all that bitching, but I’m so glad I did the Big Brother that I did with Jedward and Darryn, because I made some amazing friends.
It seemed like a lot more of a fun house last year?
Yeah I think you’ve got bigger characters though in this series than in my series because we kept ourselves to ourselves a little bit.
How is your new show going and what’s the feedback like?
It’s brilliant honey, really good, really good viewers, and it’s lovely for me to do my own show really, get across that I’m very different to the person I am in TOWIE. People think that I just sit around and have a spray tan all day, but I’m not like that, I’m a business woman now, so it’s amazing for me actually to do my own show and I really enjoy doing it. If they commission another show it’s amazing and if they don’t I’ve had the best six months of my life, filming it and everything.
What do you think about Harry leaving TOWIE?
I think Harry’s got a major career ahead of him, he’s an amazing person, he’s got loads of banter, he’s a loving person and I’m so proud of him.
What do you think of his new jewellery line?
Listen, that jewellery is the best, I wear it all the time. I’ve got it on here [Amy shows heat], I’ve got my earrings on, I always wear it, look… the ring on, it’s all over my body! It’s amazing, and when Harry first said about Lemonade I said, “that’s amazing” and I knew that it’d be perfect for him straight away. They should make a vajazzle like it and I’d put it over my body, do you know what I mean?
