Filed under: Celebrity GossipThere will be a little less 'vajazzle' about the new series of The Only Way is Essex because Amy Childs has reportedly quit the show.
According to The Sun, the beautician has opted out of the third series because show bosses vetoed Amy's other reality show plans.
The 21-year-old is being hotly pursued by various broadcasters and is rumoured to be considering a £200k offer to appear on Channel Five's revamped Big Brother.
But that doesn't sit well with the bigwigs at ITV2.
A source told the paper: "The Only Way is Essex is a community show. It stars TOWIE people, not Big Brother wannabes - it's new and fresh.
"It's bizarre that Amy wants to do a show that was axed last year for being out of date."
The insider added: "It's sad she's leaving - viewers like her. But no-one is bigger than the show."
A reality show breeding a fame-hungry wannabe... who'd have thought?
So far no comment from Amy or her management company, CAN Associates.
What do you think - will TOWIE be poorer for losing Amy? Comments below please...
