Dancing On Ice 2013: Amy Childs says skating will be good for ‘curvy’ TOWIE star Lauren Goodger

Amy Childs has said that she will be backing Lauren Goodger on Dancing On Ice this year.

The star of The Only Way Is Essex has signed up for the ITV show and has been in training for the past few months on the rink.

Amy left the ITV2 show to star in Celebrity Big Brother last year and thinks Mark Wright’s ex was right to do the same for her new show, she thinks the exercise will be good for her too.

In an interview with Metro, the busty red head explained:

““Lauren is a size 12, she is curvy but she is not fat. She has a nice figure but she still gets so much stick for it.”

She added:

“Dancing On Ice will help her to keep fit, so I’m definitely backing Lauren. I might go and watch her.”

Any excuse to get her mug on TV eh?

Childs has become the queen of reality TV and as well as starring in TOWIE and Celebrity Bug Brother she has appeared on The X Factor, Xtra Factor and her own reality series for Channel 5.

She draws the line at Dancing On Ice though and says it’s too dangerous for her liking. Previous contestants have ended up with broken legs, slashed faces and gashed arms and it’s all too much for Childs. She said:

“My dad always says if you ever get asked to do anything don’t do DOI.

“When Jennifer Ellison did it last year, it used to scare me watching her. I would definitely do Strictly though.”

Amy also hit out at Kerry Katona in her column for new! this week, after the mum of four said that she would never get on with the Essex star.

Childs defended herself saying:

“She recalls one time when we were in Dubai for work and I was all made up by the pool and she wasn’t.

I like to be glam and take pride in myself, especially as a beautician.

I wear make-up and nail polish, whereas Kerry doesn’t all of the time.

But that’s just me and I won’t change for anyone.

We’re just very different people. ”

Are you looking forward to Dancing On Ice’s return in January? Do you think Lauren will be a good contestant?
