The 22-year-old enjoyed a passionate fling with the former The Only Way Is Essex star after meeting him in the Australian jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! last year. But the former Miss Universe contestant has since confessed on Sunday their short romance was not a happy time for her.
And she wishes she never went on the ITV show in the first place, where millions of viewers watched them fall for each other. ‘The attention after we left the show was really hard for me,’ she told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper. In 24-year-old Joey’s autobiography, he revealed he and Amy had sex the second night after leaving the jungle.

He also claimed the pair hooked up with each other in an airplane lavatory on the way back to the UK from Australia. Amy, who Sam said in one interview ‘wouldn’t be welcome in Essex’, claims she has never read the former TOWIE hunk’s book.

She even said in one interview: ‘I still fancy him, but I don’t want to be the next Katie Price and Peter Andre. ‘He is a really loving, kind person and being with him felt really nice.’
