It's Not All About Amy After All
Less than two years ago, Amy Childs was just a beautician from Brentwood. In 2010 her life was turned around when she was signed up to take part in a new ITV2 reality show, The Only Way Is Essex. As one of the most popular stars of the show, often known as TOWIE, Amy went on to win Personality of the Year at the National Reality TV Awards, have her own column in new! magazine and take part in the 2011 series of Celebrity Big Brother.
As Childs became a staple of the tabloids, she was signed up by Peter Andre's management company, Can Associates, and landed her own reality TV series, It's All About Amy, on Channel 5. It seemed Amy was a dead cert to follow in the footsteps of fellow reality TV favourites Katie Price and Kerry Katona, who have both had long-running reality shows following the trials and tribulations of their lives in the spotlight.
Unfortunately, It's All About Amy didn't turn out to be a ratings hit – perhaps because Amy Childs didn't go through such dramatic life events as Katie and Kerry during their reality series. The show was moved to a later time slot, and it has been announced today that the first series of It's All About Amy will be the last.
However, it's not all bad news for Childs. Earlier this week she revealed that she will be taking part in the 2012 series of Let's Dance For Sport Relief alongside her cousin and fellow former TOWIE star Harry Derbidge. This Essex girl's star is definitely still on the rise… and if her celebrity career doesn't work out, at least Amy Child's got her vajazzling skills to fall back on!
