Amy Childs has quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' after two series to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' later this month
Amy Childs has quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 21-year-old reality beauty - who was one of the leading stars of the first two series of the ITV2 show - has reportedly bowed out of the programme in favour of appearing on the fly-on-the-wall show when it returns to Channel 5 later this summer.
Confirming her 'TOWIE' departure, Amy wrote on her twitter page: "Thank you for your lovely messages I will miss TOWIE so much, but you will be seeing more of me thanks for your support
"Im sorry I haven't tweeted you all but I will let you know more when I can it's very exciting. (sic)"
According to the Daily Star newspaper, the redhead beauty called time on her 'TOWIE' career after bosses banned her from appearing in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
Earlier this year, the star was said to be angry show newcomers - such as Joey Essex, Chloe Sims and Gemma Collins - were being given more airtime than her.
Meanwhile, Amy - whose 'Shut uuuup' catchphrase became synonymous with 'TOWIE' - recently admitted she had been in talks about the possibility of fronting her own spin-off show, as she was keen to "jump off at the right time".
She said: "There is a lot of talk about me getting my own show. Everyone wants me to. They love me. So I'm sure it could happen.
"We've all got to jump off at the right time as it can't go on forever."
