Amy Childs admits her life has become a "living hell" since she shot to fame on 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The 21-year-old reality star quit the ITV2 reality show last summer, but she claims her family are still being "terrorised" by jealous thugs who are envious of her success.
She said: "My life has become a living hell. Me and my family are being terrorised. It just feels like this nightmare is never going to end.
"This has all happened since I became famous. I feel so guilty for my family. Maybe people are jealous or think I've got loads of money. It's because I'm doing well for myself, people don't like it. They reckon I'm showing off.
"But I've worked hard and saved up, and I've never been handed anything on a plateI'm just a normal girl from Essex enjoying my life."
In addition to the Essex home Amy shares with her parents and brother Joe being "trashed" by burglars, the redhead beauty explained her fame has also had an impact on her father's flower business, which has now been targeted four times.
She added in an interview with OK! magazine: "I was in my house one night, and there were these lads outside, stoning our home. I looked outside and it was pitch black, someone had smashed my car with a For Sale board.
"It got worse, a week later we were burgled. Our home was absolutely trashed. Our telly and laptops got nicked, and it was just this horrible creepy feeling that someone had been in my home. They ransacked our home and attacked our dogs - my three pugs are literally my life.
"Two weeks after that, my dad's flower business was broken into. They stole three of his lorries, took all of his flowers and plants. My dad has now been turned over four times. It just feels like this nightmare is never going to end."
