Amy Childs' young Barbie love
Former 'Only Way is Essex' star Amy Childs has revealed she played with Barbies until she was 12 years old
Amy Childs played with Barbies until she was 12.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star is known for her plumped up lips and extravagant false eyelashes, but she claims her appearance wasn't her main priority as a youngster because she preferred dressing up her toy fashion dolls instead.
She said: "I was never one of them girls at 11 with mascara on.
"Tell you a big secret - I was playing with Barbies until I was 12."
The 23-year-old beauty - who has had two boob jobs and Botox - insists she prefers to keep her look natural by adding just make up and she is adamant she won't go under the knife for over a decade because she doesn't need it.
She added to heat magazine: "I love being glamorous and putting make up on, but people think I wake up looking like that.
"I had Botox on 'TOWIE', but that was just for the show. I wouldn't have anything cosmetic done for another 15 years. I don't need Botox. It upsets me when I got burnt in Dubai and people said I'd had filler - that's not the message I want out there."
