Amy Childs: 'TOWIE' is missing something'
Amy Childs thinks 'The Only Way is Essex' is "missing" something since she left to pursue her career
Amy Childs believes 'The Only Way is Essex' is "missing" something since she left.
The flame-haired beauty - who rose to fame as one of the original cast of the ITV2 show before leaving in 2011 - does not think the programme has gone "downhill" but believes she left at the right time.
She said: "I did the right thing. 'TOWIE' is an amazing show, but I left at the right time.
"At first I was like, 'I can't do it. I love 'TOWIE' more than anything'. But I left at the peak of the show. And when I left it - I'm not going to say it went downhill, because it hasn't, everyone still loves it - but there's a little something missing."
However the 21-year-old star, whose cousin Harry also left the series, admits she continues to watch the show, which stars the likes of Joey Essex, James Argent and Mario Falcone.
She added: "I still watch it. I love it. I think it got a bit serious. We need a bit of cheering up and it coul de a bit more chilled."
