Reality TV star Amy Childs has hit out at people who live off benefits

Amy Childs is "upset" at her aunt for raising nine children.

The reality TV star says that although she loves her aunt, she strongly disagrees with her decision to have so many children and in turn, accept financial support from the British government.

The 24-year-old businesswoman said: "I love my auntie more than anything but she lives off benefits. She has nine children and that is her life. Sometimes people like that upset me.

"I look at her and she's had a lot of money from the government. And there's me working my a*** off. I meet her friends and they're on benefits. Some don't want to work. It comes down to laziness."

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star also said it's unfair that people like herself work hard for their money only to see it subsidise other people having children.

Speaking ahead of the general election in May, Amy told The Sun newspaper: "Our country needs to be working. Money isn't going to come out of nowhere. I am in the highest tax bracket. But why am I paying 45 percent tax and doing all of this work to pay for people that are having loads of children?"
