Former TOWIE star Amy Childs admits she blushes at the tought of racy bondage novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

The buxom lovely devoured the weighty romp by E L James around a pool with other women while on holiday in Dubai.

But talking publicly about what happens within its pages is beyond the pale for the babe – who introduced vajazzling to the nation on ITV2 telly hit; The Only Way is Essex.

“Thanks to my obsession with the ‘50 Shades of Grey’ trilogy I was asked to appear in a documentary about it for Channel 4. I love the books, but felt a bit flustered when it came to actually talking about it, especially in front of a crew of strangers.”

“I have just come back from holiday in Dubai where I was one of at least 10 women round the pool reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.” she said.

“We all swapped notes and agreed we couldn’t put the book down. It’s a very dirty book and I admit I found some of the sex scenes too extreme.”
