Amy Childs became teary-eyed during the series opener of The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday. The reality TV star, 32, grew emotional while chatting about her insecurities with Jordan Brook and James Locke during a beach party.
Amy told the boys: ‘The past couple of months I have lost my complete confidence. I come out here and I feel like all the girls have beautiful bodies. ‘Social media for me, I think it’s hard… I just feel like I am going to be back to me in a couple of months, hopefully.
She opened up about feeling less confident as she celebrated her birthday and started crying when she received a message from home. The Only Way is Essex returned for its 30th series on Sunday, which saw some exciting new additions to the cast as they swapped the iconic Sugar Hut for the sun-soaked beaches of the Dominican Republic.
‘Look at you two training. I feel like I need to get my head straight, do you know what I mean?’ The star then went on to gush over her family as her boyfriend Billy Delbosq sent her a sweet video of her daughter Polly.
She covered her mouth and said: ‘Why am I so upset? Oh my god, I just miss my kids so much.’ The pair celebrated 14 months together last week, with Amy marking the occasion by sharing a photo of herself and Billy kissing on the London Eye.
Amy, who shares daughter Polly, five, with ex-Bradley Wright, started dating TOWIE newcomer Billy following her split from former partner Tim last July. The beauty started crying as she said: ‘I literally just got a message, how beautiful is she?,’ while showing Jordan and James the video.
On Instagram, she said: ’14 months of loving you, today was beautiful. I love you.’Amy is also a mum to Ritchie Jr, three, from her relationship with businessmen Ritchie, but unlike Polly, who regularly features on TOWIE, her son remains out of the spotlight. The Only Way Is Essex airs Sundays at 9pm on ITVBe and ITV Hub.
