Amy Childs: 'I Turned Down I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' (EXCLUSIVE)

Posted: Updated:

Amy Childs may be our favourite reality TV queen, but the former 'TOWIE' star has revealed she turned down the chance to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'

The beautician-slash-model-slash-TV-personality has spoken of how ITV held secret talks with her to become a camp-mate on last year's series, which featured her former 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star Mark Wright.

Amy told us: "I went in a meeting for the jungle last year and that's when I went for a meeting with 'Big Brother' and I chose them. They were quite interested in me."

Explaining her decision, she said: "I hate insects, I hate spiders, rats, I would really struggle. If I went in there, people would not like me. It would be the end of my career."

However, she did admit she would like to 'do a Myleene Klass' (or a Helen Flanagan as it is now known) and strip off in the jungle shower.

"You'd have to do it. I'd just go there for a day and just start showering myself, might as well," she said.

Amy - who told us she's 'not ready to go back to 'TOWIE' - also ruled out further reality TV show appearances.

"I've done 'Big Brother' now and I don't think I'd do another reality show for a while," she added.
