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."
"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.
