Amy Childs emerges at her salon after reality show was axed

Back to her day job! A glum Amy Childs emerges at her salon after reality show was axed

She started her career as a beautician, and Amy Childs has gone back to her roots.

The 21-year-old emerged for the first time today, a day after it was announced her reality show had been axed after just one season.

The redhead looked glum as she exited her white Range Rover and walked into Amy Childs' Salon in Brentwood, Essex.

She had her head down as she fumbled with her car keys and cellphone.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star looked the part in her bright purple uniform with black stockings and towering black heels.

She added a diamante choker necklace and a black purse to the ensemble.

Six months ago, Amy burned her bridges with the series that made her
famous to triumph alone with a stint on Celebrity Big Brother.

Following
her popularity, she was given a show all of her
own, It's All About Amy.

She wrote about the Channel 5 snub last night: 'Thank you for all your amazing support for #itsallaboutamy xxxx.'

Earlier, she said: 'My last
show tonight #itsallaboutamy, had so much fun filming it, lots more tv
work coming up soon 😉 xxxx'

The show struggled to pull in viewers during the eight-episode broadcast, opening with 506,000 viewers and falling to 300,000.

A stark contrast to ITV2's average TOWIE audience of 1.55 million.

And Amy won't be returning to TOWIE, when the fourth season starts airing from Sunday, with the returning characters already announced.

A source told The Mirror: 'The
fly-on-the-wall format didn’t really work because there wasn’t a lot
going on.

'TOWIE at least has a few different cast members, but watching
Amy drive to TV studios and train her dogs was just tedious.'

Despite raking in the pennies by
opening her own salon, beautician Amy was seen trying various activities
including attending the launch of Peter Andre’s coffee shop and meeting
Prime Minister David Cameron.

The show initially began airing at 10pm, but later shifted to an 11pm slot.

Childs was the first to break free from Bafta-winning TOWIE, with cousin
Harry Derbidge eventually axed for repeatedly appearing in Amy’s spin-off show, and Kirk Norcross
quit to take part in Celebrity Big Brother.

Mark Wright also cut the apron strings to feature on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and
now presents on Take Me Out spin-off, The
Gossip.

Peri Sinclair, Maria Fowler and Mick Norcross have also left the show.
