Amy Childs has 'painful chin liposuction' as she talks 'surgery addiction'

It’s always a pleasure to meet up with Amy Childs, as the bubbly mum-of-two has remained down to earth since she rose to fame on TOWIE in 2010. Still, a lot has changed for Ames since the early days of reality success — and the star admits that life is no longer about the glitz and night out at the Sugar Hut, but family time and charity.

“I’m still the same person. I’m still pretty ditty. But I’m a mother now, I’m older, wiser, and I’m a grown-up,” Amy explains. “I first did TOWIE when I was 19. I’m 32 this year.”

And as Star Jorja tells us all about her new charity venture as the Foundation’s Creative Director, nthat’s a deal! The new guy in your life is about to get gauss. Amy has been dating 36-year-old Billy Delbosch since last year and she’s really in love with the First Dates star.

In fact, as Amy tells us Billy is great with her kids — Polly, four, and Richie, three, from previous relationships — she can’t hide the joy in her voice. It’s great to see our dear honey in such a nice place.

Here, she talks about finding love, quitting surgery, and finally feeling satisfied…

Hi Amy. You and Billy look so cute at the moment. how are things going?

It is all good. We walk so well. She’s wonderful with kids and I’m so lucky – we both are!

You recently spent nine months together on social media, but in September you told us you’re single… Can you clear this illusion?

I met Bill soon after I split with my ex [Tim, who Amy broke up with in July 2021], We didn’t go on a date for a long time, but we talked to each other – we had some mutual friends.

We count it from the day we met, but technically we haven’t officially been together for that long. My life is always on social media and there are a few things I want to hold back – I wanted to know before I put Billy out there.

You said you now feel confident enough to skip cosmetic surgery with Billy?

Yes. I was so young, having had surgery, I felt like I had accepted myself. I have stopped getting Botox and am doing Pilates three times a week. Because I’m happy with myself – Bill makes me so happy and so do my kids – and I’m in such a good place, I feel like I don’t need it anymore.

Previously, it was all about the image. Now that I am a mother, all I care about is that my kids are fine and healthy. I can’t say I don’t dress up—I’m so glamorous and always blow-dry my hair—but there’s more to life than lip filler.

I got addicted to it – I’m open about my surgery regrets and I have massive regrets. Now I don’t, because I haven’t had surgery for a long time. Although I had a new set of veneers.

And you recently had liposuction on your chin…

Yes. I was watching myself on TV and she was a little pouch – I thought, “I don’t like that.” When I saw the doctor, he said you could be the thinnest person ever and you still have this double chin. It was very painful. But in terms of filler, changing my face and that, I am very happy with myself. I can’t even remember when was the last time I had botox!

Are you worried about the pressure of growing up on young girls like Polly?

When Polly grows up, I’ll tell her everything. I have before and after photos of lip fillers, and photos from when I did my breasts. I’ll sit him down and say, “That’s it.”

Hopefully she’ll say, “Did you know my mom did this and I’m not leaving.” I’ll talk him through it all.

Now there’s pressure. You look through social media and think that other people’s lives look perfect, but are they perfect? I think when you are happy with yourself, that is the most important thing. I feel very satisfied since meeting Bill. I have always been happy, but now I am also satisfied.

How is Polly doing – We saw she recently did a photoshoot in Marrakech with Bess Childrenswear…

Yes. She was living the dream there and it was great. She literally came out on her own. I just thought, “Where did he get this from?” I wasn’t very convinced when I was four, but Polly was so cool on a shoot for the company a year and a half ago, and they wanted to use her again for their summer campaign. He flew us all to Marrakech and it was the same again – he was the owner of it.

And how is Richie?

That’s all good. Richie is a bit more laid back and pretty much a mommy boy – he’s too clinging to me. Whereas Polly are quite independent.

What’s it like to be a “mom” now and follow Polly?

I asked Bill this morning, “What did I do before I had kids?” This morning I woke up at 6 am having a packed lunch and taking Rich to the nursery. I don’t have free time now. But I love being a mom – to me it’s the most amazing thing ever. It’s hard sometimes but I love it, I really do.

Would you like more kids?

I’ve always said never say never, but at the moment, working on the Jorja range and then launching my own Prosecco, I’m literally everywhere. And then it’s full time with the kids. I’m not sure.

You return to TOWIE in 2020 after a break of nine years. Why did you want to go back?

I distanced myself from TV for some time because I felt that I needed time for myself. then Richie’s father [Ritchie] And I fell apart and I found Amy Childs again – I lost her for a short time. I filmed Celebs Go Dating [in 2020] And then the time to go back to TOWIE seemed fine.

Eleven years ago, I was doing vazzles and spray tans on shows, I was really young and my life was all about getting sugar off. Now, 10 years later, I am a mom. I’m more of a mediator, who gives advice.

Will you be in the next series?

Yes. We start filming in June. I like this. I don’t do drama. There’s no one I don’t talk to – I do films with everybody. I am like a mother in the show. They will come to me and I will always give my opinion. Billy can join in, too.

Do you think Polly will go down the showbiz route?

Polly will do what she wants to do. I would never push him to do anything. She does a bit of filming on TOWIE. There was a time when they wanted to do a scene with Polly and me, and she wasn’t ready for it that day, she didn’t want to do it. So I was like, “You know what? Let’s not do that.”

Do you keep in touch with the original cast?

Of course. People think Brentwood and Lawton are big, but they really aren’t. You always listen to what everyone else is doing. Billy Fiers is just around the corner from me. I was at a premiere with Ferne McCann last week. Sunday goes to school in Brentwood and Polly is around the corner. They now go to the ballet together on Mondays.

Tell us about your new position as creative director of the Jorja Foundation…

As a mother, Jorja Emerson’s story really touched me. She was born with an extremely rare chromosomal abnormality called a 1q43q44 deletion and began having seizures at 10 months of age, even as doctors told her parents that it would be best to take her home to die .

Her father, Robin, went and researched 24 hours a day, then someone suggested trying medical cannabis. They did, and ever since, Jorja has flourished.

His life has completely changed and he no longer has seizures. I want other parents to know about it – it can save other people’s lives.

And you’ve also launched a range of CBD products…

Yes, I went to see Robin and he told me this story. I had tears in my eyes. I met Jorja, she is gorgeous. We have become such good friends and together we have released this beautiful CBD range. CBD is so popular right now.

I love soothing creams and bath oils – all families can use them, even kids. Proceeds go to the Jorja Foundation, which helps families going through the same thing.
