Lucy Mecklenburgh: Amy Childs should never make TOWIE return
Lucy Mecklenburgh thinks there is "no place" for Amy Childs on 'The Only Way is Essex' nowadays and if she did return to the ITV2 reality show then the brunette beauty doesn't think she would be able to "handle it".
Lucy Mecklenburgh doesn't think Amy Childs would be able to "handle it" on 'The Only Way is Essex' nowadays.
The brunette beauty says there is "no place" for the flame-haired stunner on the ITV2 reality show since she quit after series two because "a lot has changed" and she wouldn't fit in with the new cast.
She said: "To put it bluntly, no, there's no place for her on the show. I don't think she could do it.
"She left after series two and we're on series eight now. A lot has changed and we're a lot bigger cast.
"She's been in the celebrity world for so long now. I know we have too, but we're quite down-to-earth and in our little 'TOWIE' community.
"If she came back, I don't think she'd be able to handle it, if I'm honest."
Despite her comments, Lucy insists she is "fine" with Amy and often speaks to her when she sees her in Essex.
She explained: "I'm fine with her now and I don't want to argue with her. I like Amy and our shops are down the same road so I don't want any rivalry there. If I see her, I'll say hello."
Lucy also appeared to take a swipe at some of her 'TOWIE' co-stars past and present by saying she will not just put her name to a product without a reason, and she insists her own fashion and beauty designs are "amazing".
She added to Digital Spy: "A lot of us have bought things out, but I've made sure my range is amazing.
"I won't just put my name to things - like some of the TOWIE girls have. I've designed all this myself and the website is mine."
