It seems as though Amy Childs is having a tough old time at the moment – but, if it’s taking it toll on her, she’s not letting it show.

The former TOWIE star posted a defiant picture on her Instagram account this weekend – just as it emerged that her ex-boyfriend has been jailed for handling stolen goods.

Bradley Wright was handed an 18 month prison sentence at Isleworth Crown Court this week.

And, hours before the news broke, Amy posted a picture of her giving friend Gary from First Dates a kiss on the lips.

She captioned the snap: ‘The only man I need is Gary …. Lovely to see you !!!! #firstdates!!!’

Amy reportedly chucked Bradley – and booted him out of her Essex home – following revelations in the Sunday Mirror revelations that the JCB driver had sent explicit texts and snaps to a woman he met through a dating website.

A friend of Amy’s revealed that Bradley called the 25-year-old beautician from Wormwood Scrubs to beg for forgiveness – but she told him it’s over for good.

The friend said: ‘Brad called Amy from prison to tell her he was banged up and she was shocked.

‘It’s been hard enough coming to terms with the end of their relationship, let alone then hearing that.

‘There’s no going back though. Amy feels really let down.

‘Her career is going from strength to strength, but it’s clear Bradley isn’t going places. She won’t be visiting him.’

And, judging from Amy’s Instagram snap, she’s clearly keen to put their relationship behind her.

It’s not the first time Bradley, also 25, has found himself in trouble with the law.

He was given 16 months in 2013 for three counts of theft, and spent 19 months in a Young Offenders Institution in 2010 for burglary, handling stolen goods and driving offences.
