The Only Way Is Essex Cast Proud Of Amy Childs In Big Brother House

PRESS ASSOCIATION -- Amy Childs' The Only Way Is Essex co-stars have put their weight behind her to win Celebrity Big Brother - despite losing her to the rival reality show.

The glamorous beautician threw in the TOWIE towel before entering the BB house, but her cousin Harry Derbidge and fellow cast members Sam Faiers and Lauren Pope are rooting for Childs to triumph in the Channel 5 show.

Derbidge, 17, revealed: "She is doing amazingly, I'm so proud of her. I think she's going to win it, she will win it."

He added: "I would go on too! I'd love it. I love the show. I've always wanted to be on that show."

Faiers, 20, added: "Amy's doing really well, she's doing really good. I think she'll be brilliant, hopefully she'll win and do the Essex posse proud."

But the glamour model admitted she'd feel the absence of her pal in the next series of TOWIE. "The show must go on but we will miss her," she said.

Co-star Lauren Pope - who joined the other Essex stars living it up in the Virgin Media Louder Lounge at this year's V Festival - has been watching Amy on the show every night, but said she'd take some persuading to enter the Big Brother house.

"I'd have to think very long and hard about it," she added.
