It's not the usual scenario you'd expect to see her in.

Rather than standing in the cold on a muddy football field you'd usually see Amy Childs in a beauty salon or dressed to the nines on a red carpet.

But that wasn't the case on Saturday morning when the former TOWIE star revealed her more relaxed side as she visited her local football ground in Essex.

And showing she was game for a laugh, the reality TV star even attempted to show off her foot skills as she kicked a ball around.

Although she was dressed down compared to usual, there were still signs of her usual style.

Amy wore bright pink wellington boots with pretty bow detailing to the sides.

And she completed her look with spandex leggings, although Childs opted for a plain V-neck jumper and a cream bomber jacket so she wouldn't look too dressed up for the occasion.

Although, obviously still wanting to look her best, especially seem as boyfriend David Peters was with her, she wore her red hair high on her head in a large coiffed bun.

And she did, of course, still ensure she had plenty of make-up on.
