Being in the public eye brings with it pressure – whether that's from yourself or from social media – to look your best at all times. And as one of the original TOWIE cast members, few people know that more than Amy Childs.
But when we catch up with her for a chat, Amy is refreshingly honest and candid about her body image saying that, after two children, she is "content with her figure".
Amy says: "I’m a mum now and I’ve got two children – I’m real. Your body changes completely when you've had kids."
She also says that she has made slight changes to her wardrobe to reflect her changing figure, admitting that she oped for a swimsuit rather than a bikini when the cast were in the Caribbean filming the most recent series of the show. " I wore an all-in-one swimsuit rather than a bikini when we visited the Dominican Republic," she tells OK!
She also says that as one of the older cast members on TOWIE, some might think that there is pressure on her to compete with the super slim youngsters. But down to earth Amy bats off that suggestion. "I’m not in any competition. I’m a dress size 10, and I’m content with that," she says.
Thought she's not punishing herself to lose weight, Amy still does like to exercise to feel the mental and physical benefits, revealing to us she likes to "squeeze in" a 6am session on her Peloton spin bike before her children, Polly, five and Richie Jr, four are wake up.
Peloton bikes became hugely popular during the pandemic and Amy explains why she loves hers so much. "A quick half an hour on it can burn up to 300 calories, and last week I rode it every day," she says.
But Amy admits that being a busy mum of two does sometimes put paid to her exercise plans. "Having children means I’m not able to work out all the time, but if I can get to the gym I’ll go. I try to train twice a week," she says.

Another reason why Amy feels so content and happy at the moment is her flourishing relationship with gym owner Billy Delbosq. And, after a string of heartbreaks, Amy believes she's finally found the one!
"We went out and I met his mates, and it quickly went from there. I really hope hand on my heart that he’s the one for me. He’s kind, and we’re very happy together," Amy explains.
We hope you've found your happy ending, Amy!
