Amy Childs has been ordered by police to stop filming her reality TV show in America.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star - who quit the ITV2 show to concentrate on her own TV career - was in Hollywood for some high-profile auditions and wanted to capture her moves for her new Channel 5 show 'It's All About Amy'.
However, her camera crew were told to stop filming by officers because they did not have a permit to shoot.
During her trip to the US, Amy, 21, had lined up a vital meeting at the Los Angeles Creative Artists Agency - which has guided the careers of Hollywood stars Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock - in the hope of launching her brand Stateside.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Amy is so nervous but she knows that she has what it takes to be very big."
The Los Angeles trip could have been part of the flame-haired star's plan to increase viewing figures on the Channel 5 show, after 'It's All About Amy' debuted with just over 500,000 viewers.
She recently said: "Over half a million people tuned in! I'm really pleased. I know some TV critics will say it's not many, but most reality shows pick up as they go on. We'll see!
"I got lots of lovely tweets, too. I had a few bad ones, but you expect it. I was even a trending topic!"
