Amy Childs: I was glamorous before TOWIE
Amy Childs insists she was always glamorous before she appeared on 'The Only Way Is Essex' as looking good has always been important to her
Amy Childs insists she was always glamorous before she appeared on 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The 21-year-old redhead - who quit the ITV2 reality show last year to launch her own programme - says taking care of her appearance has always been important to her as it has to many girls in Essex.
She said: "All the girls from 'TOWIE' have always been very glamorous and I've always been like it so I didn't change my look for it.
"I've always been like this, I was a beautician before 'TOWIE' started."
Since quitting 'TOWIE', Amy - who appeared in 'Celebrity Big Brother' last year - says she's amazed at how well she's done in her career, which includes having her own salon and selling her clothing on her website.
Speaking on 'Loose Women', she explained: "I can't believe it, I'm shocked that it's done so well. My website crashed a while a go and at my salon, I get queues of girls wanting to get in. I pinch myself as I can't believe all this has happened to me. I'm just a normal girl from Essex."
