Amy Childs admits she struggled when she had to talk about racy novel '50 Shades of Grey' on TV recently
Amy Childs got embarrassed when she had to talk about '50 Shades of Grey' on TV.
The former 'Only Way is Essex' star is a fan of the racy bondage book series, but wasn't fully prepared to answer questions about it when she appeared on a documentary about them on TV.
She said: "Thanks to my obsession with the '50 Shades of Grey' trilogy I was asked to appear in a documentary about it for Channel 4. I love the books, but felt a bit flustered when it came to actually talking about it, especially in front of a crew of strangers."
Amy has previously said she couldn't put the novel - by E. L. James - down when she was on holiday.
She recently said: "I have just come back from holiday in Dubai where I was one of at least 10 women round the pool reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.
"We all swapped notes and agreed we couldn't put the book down. It's a very dirty book and I admit I found some of the sex scenes too extreme."
However, Amy hasn't had chance to spice things up in the bedroom with boyfriend David Peters, as she is still recovering from a painful breast enlargement operation.
She said: "I can't even wear a proper bra yet. I have to wear a sports bra all day and night for six weeks. That's attractive when you're in a new relationship!"
