Celebrity Big Brother is proving to be a true test for Amy Childs, as the reality TV star faces increasing criticism from her fellow housemates.
Amy, who quit The Only Way Is Essex to be involved in the show and work on new projects, has been slammed by various contestants in the fly-on-the-wall house.
American Pie actress Tara Reid was overheard being bitchy about Amy, saying to actor Lucien Laviscount and model Bobby Sabel: “She is a reality star, dude. Like what has she accomplished?”
Bobby, who was expected to hit it off with Amy, has also turned on the redhead.
So far the 25-year-old hunk has referred to Amy disparagingly as “it” and ranting: “I thought I would come in here and fancy Amy Childs, but I don’t. How could you?” He also branded Amy “stupid and brainless”.
Before going into the house Amy revealed in her column for new! magazine that she was excited to enter and meet Bobby: “It looks like Big Brother could be doing some matchmaking," she wrote.
“Before I went into the CBB house, I hear d that Levi’s model Bobby Sabel would be in the house too and that he thinks I’m beautiful. A model! Bring it on! Who knows what might happen?!”
Looks like nothing of a romantic nature will be happening now...

Amy’s mum Julie Childs has spoken out this week to Now magazine, saying she’s proud of how the 21-year-old has coped. “She's not confrontational, so would never be nasty back or argue with anyone," Julie said.
”As long as she continues to be her fun self and not let people get to her, she'll be fine."
Amy isn’t the only contestant who is getting grief from fellow contestants. Former housemate Sally Bercow, who became the first person to be evicted from this year’s Celebrity Big Brother house, said Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff is the most annoying person to live with.
Speaking to OK! magazine, Sally said: “She wouldn’t hurt a fly but I just found her hard to live with. And she’s the biggest hypochondriac I’ve ever met.
“She was constantly running to the Diary Room for medication. She drives you bonkers.”
