Amy Childs' Channel 5 reality show 'It's All About Amy' has been axed after just one series
Amy Childs' reality show has been axed after just one series.
'It's All About Amy' - which documented the life of the 21-year-old star after she quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' to appear in 'Celebrity Big Brother' last year - has been given the chop by Channel 5 now its eight-episode stint has come to an end, with bosses claiming the format of the show "didn't really work".
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The fly-on-the-wall format didn't really work because there wasn't a lot going on.
"'TOWIE' at least has a few different cast members, but watching Amy drive to TV studios and train her dogs was just tedious."
While ratings for the series slumped from 506,000 to just 300,000 - 1.55 million down from the average audience of 'TOWIE' - Channel 5 bosses claim they are now talking to Amy about "other possibilities".
A spokesperson said: "The show was commissioned as an eight-part series looking at Amy Childs' life in the period immediately after her successful stint in the 'Big Brother' house.
"We are currently talking to Amy about other opportunities on the channel."
