‘I wish I’d stayed in TOWIE longer, but I wouldn’t be in this position if I’d stayed. I own four properties, they’re all rented out. I also have a furniture range with Obaby and a pram range with Roma. You need a plan.’

Despite being 
a busy working mum to daughter Polly and her seven-month-old son, whose name hasn’t been revealed, Amy, 28, has happily admitted a day doesn’t go by when she’s not wearing make-up.

‘The kids wake up 6.30am every morning, first I sort them, then myself out,’ she said. ‘I wear make-up every single day. You can still look great and be comfy. I love Forever Sewing, they 
do personalised handmade loungewear so you can 
twin with your little ones.’

Seven months after giving birth to her second child, Amy looks fab, but tells us: ‘I’ve still got the mum tum. I have to tone up. I’d like to lose a bit of weight, but 
I don’t want to put pressure on myself. At the minute, my main thing is the children. I’ve always had skinny arms, so they are the favourite part of my body.’

Meanwhile, daughter Polly turns two this month. Amy said: ‘There’s tantrums galore! Polly loves Peppa Pig, so we’re going to visit Peppa Pig World.’

But Amy admits: ‘I miss the TOWIE days. I wake up thinking what did I do before I had kids?’

When Amy realised it was the last issue of Now magazine, she said: ‘I love Now, I always have done and I’m very sad to hear that it’s going!’
