Celebrity Big Brother star Amy Childs has become friends with US socialite Paris Hilton.
The pair have been in contact since Paris spoke to Childs about a UK version of the reality show The Simple Life.
Hilton tweeted Amy after she heard that the former Only Way Is Essex star was planning to appear in The Simpleton Life with her cousin Harry Derbidge.
Amy told the Daily Star: "Paris is my mate now - she keeps on tweeting me.
"She heard about me and Harry Derbidge doing The Simple Life and she was like, 'Amy, I would love you to do it. Oh my God, I think you'd be amazing. I want to come out with you. I'd love you to come to America'."
Paris launched her career on the US show The Simple Life with her friend and fellow socialite Nicole Richie.
The pair of rich heiresses were filmed as they struggled to do low-paid job.
Childs has claimed she is planning on giving Paris an Essex-style make-over when she comes to the UK in a few months time.
She said: "I was like, 'Oh my God Paris Hilton just tweeted me!' She is coming over in two months' time so we are going to go to London and then I'll give her an Essex makeover.
"I'll take her to my salon and give her a nice spray tan."
The Simpleton Life will see Amy and Harry take on a number of jobs including working underground in a Welsh coal mine, working a shift at Domino's Pizza and going deep sea fishing in the Outer Hebrides.
