Amy Childs thinks losing her curves will boost her career...

We’re all reeling over Amy Childs exit from The Only Way Is Essex, but we’re even more shocked about the 5ft 5in star’s disappearing curves.

The redhead, 21, who’s tipped to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, showed off her petite bod last week while out in Mayfair and pals tell us she’s lost over 10lb.

‘She’s gone from a size 10 to a size 6-8,’ says a pal.

‘Of course she’s stressing about leaving TOWIE, but she thinks she needs to lose another 4lb to look her best for CBB.’
