Amy Childs Quits The Only Way Is Essex For Rival Show

THE Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs has quit after bosses vetoed her plans to boost her telly career.

Childs, 21 - who has said she wants to be "bigger than Jordan" - reckons she could net deals worth £500,000.

But ITV chiefs don't want TOWIE stars in other reality shows in case the public stops seeing them as "real people".
