Jack Tweed has reportedly been banned from appearing on 'The Only Way is Essex' because he is considered to be too much of a celebrity

Jack Tweed has been banned from appearing on 'The Only Way is Essex'.

The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant - who is friends with 'TOWIE' hunk Mark Wright and has been romantically linked to the nightclub promoter's sister Jessica Wright - was rumoured to be set for a role on the forthcoming series of the ITV2 reality show, but he is said to be regarded as being too famous.

According to The Sun newspaper, show bosses will not allow Jack - who was widowed when his late wife Jade Goody passed away in 2009 - to appear on the programme because they do not want the cast to consider themselves as "celebrities".

Amy Childs - who shot to fame on the programme before quitting to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' earlier this year - is thought to have been axed from the third season, which begins on Sunday (25.09.11), for being too preoccupied with becoming a celebrity.

Producer Ruth Wrigley recently said: "Amy wasn't big in series two because she stopped having a real life.

"She was writing columns and waiting for filming."
