Amy Willerton is taking a career break to go travelling for a year
Amy Willerton is going travelling for a year.
The 24-year-old model is currently working towards launching her own haircare brand, and then once that hits stores, she's taking a break from her career in order to see the world.
She said: "I'm launching my haircare brand, Hair Flick, later this year then I'm going off travelling round the word so trying to fit everything in before I take off, I'm going for a year.
"Hopefully it will launch in June, and that's exciting because it is going in 450 stores and I've been working on it for a long time."
Amy has just returned to the UK after reaching the final of 'The Jump' and she has found it "weird" trying to adjust back to "normal" life as she has been training in Austria since the beginning of the year.
She said: "It was amazing, such an incredible experience but it's weird going back to normal life. I've been out since the beginning of January so my whole life since the beginning of January has just been skiing and jumping, so it's weird coming back."
'The Jump' is notorious for seeing its contestants get injured out on the slopes so Amy admits it was a "relief" to return home unscathed.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the Chortle Awards, she said: "I'm so relieved, to do that show is such a blessing but it comes with a lot of physical risk, so to come back without any broken bones is a relief."
And Amy can't wait to see her fellow contestants again soon.
She added: "The cast was amazing, we all got on so well, we were like one big family, we partied, cried together, nursed each other's wounds, we really looked after each other and I miss them. I'm hoping to organise a reunion soon."
When she does get back from travelling, the former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' contestant is open to doing more reality TV shows.
She said: "I love doing challenge shows, anything where you fight the fear and do something really exciting you wouldn't normally do, I'd love to do more."
