T.O.W.I.E: Bosses glad to see the back of Celebrity Big Brother’s Amy Childs?

September 3rd, 2011

As we all wait with bated breath for the new series of The only way is Essex to fill our screens, it seems that the big changes and shake up’s the bosses promised will be apparent.

One of the biggest surprises between series’ was that original cast member, and self proclaimed queen of the Vajazzle, Amy Childs, decided not to renew her contract and appear in the shows third series.

Whilst Childs has been quite openly regretful about this decision, based on the fact that she was reported to have considered herself bigger than the show, it seems that the bosses at T.O.W.I.E couldn’t be happier with it.

Childs, who is currently taking part in Channel 5′s remake of Celebrity big Brother, expressed a few weeks ago that she was very sad to not be taking part this series, and she thinks she will be very sad and teary once the show airs, in September.

However, if she was hinting for an invite back, it seems she can add disappointment to the list of feelings this new series is invoking in her, as bosses say that they are pleased that the beautician chose to quit, as they felt she was too busy chasing stardom and that she didn’t “stand out enough” from the rest of the cast.

The show’s producer, Ruth Wrigley told The Sun: “Amy wasn’t big in series two because she stopped having a real life. she was writing columns and waiting for filming.”

Claire Zoklwer, commissioning editor, added that The only way is Essex does not need Amy as part of the show because she didn’t “stand out enough” from the rest of the cast.

She said: “Corrie wouldn’t be entertaining if there were one million Ken Barlows in it.

“Amy leaving is part of change and I think it will be good for the show.” TOWIE bosses also defended the fact that the cast receive just £50 for filming, stating that the fee is so low because “they weren’t doing real work.”

Ruth said: “these guys aren’t actors. They’re not working.

“It’s like the amount you get when you’re on jury service or if you go in the big Brother house.

“they make loads of money off the back of it.”
