‘She’s only three, she’s a baby still. And if she said she was tired and she had to film, I never would push her and go, “You’ve got to film”. I’d never do that. I’m not one of those pushing mums, but I know that she loves seeing herself on the TV. And I just, yeah, I love it. It makes me really happy.’

Host Bobby Norris said: ‘Yeah, definitely. I can always tell when I’m filming with you, she comes in, she genuinely loves it. You know, like, she gets excited. We done that lovely Mother’s Day scene together.’

Amy replied: ‘I know she loves it. She sits there and, no she loves it. And, like I said, if she didn’t like it, I’d never do it. But you know, if she wants to go on Love Island when she’s older.’  

The TV star shares daughter Polly with her builder ex Bradley Wright, and son Ritchie Jr, two, with businessman ex Ritchie.

Amy also told how she would love to do a special show featuring the TOWIE mothers after her co-star George Kousoulou welcomes her child with Tommy Mallet.

She said: ‘Showing like, you know, mums, you know. How obviously TOWIE was 10 years ago and how, you know, we’ve got older, you know, people still think we’re the same people, but of course we’re not. 

‘We’re different, we get older, we get wiser. You know, we’ve made mistakes in the past and I’d love to do like a mummy slash baby show with all the girls from TOWIE.

‘And with Georgia [Kousoulou], she’s obviously going to become a mum and I think it would be a really good show. I’d love to do something like that.’ 

Amy said: 'I'm not one of those pushing mums, but I know that she loves seeing herself on the TV. And I just, yeah, I love it. It makes me really happy'

The former Celebrity Big Brother star told how she plans to bring back her old flame-haired locks in the future.

She said: ‘I’d love to bring the red hair back. I think it’s very me.

‘I look in the mirror and I just don’t feel like myself. But when I’ve got that red hair, I feel like I’m back! So the red will be coming back, but I’m not sure when.’

Amy is currently planning some home renovations and is ditching her crushed velvet furniture in favour of making her house look like something from Netflix drama Bridgerton.

The star explained: ‘People are loving the crushed velvet. Honestly, listen, I can’t sit here and say that I don’t like it. I do. I think it’s very dated now. 

‘I think it’s very much been done. Obviously, me and Bobby were talking about it. You know, I think I should be a bit different now.

‘I’ve watched Bridgerton and I think, “Do you know what? That’s what I want my house to look like.” I’ve decided.’
