Harry and Amy's next venture
The Only Way is Essex stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbridge are set to star in a British remake of The Simple Life, according to reports.
Already dubbed The Simpleton Life, the pair will have to complete a series of ‘tough’ challenges, including putting in a shift at Domino’s Pizza, working in a coal mine and deep sea fishing in the Outer Hebrides.
A source told The Sun:
“The show will be just like The Simple Life but, dare I say it, even more ridiculous.
“Amy and Harry are not exactly known for their ability to do everyday tasks so it’s a car crash waiting to happen.
“In fairness, they are quite funny as a duo and bosses are hoping their daft chemistry will keep people entertained.”
Harry and Amy stepped into the spotlight after appearing on Essex-based dramality show, The Only Way is Essex, which started in 2011.
They will follow in the footsteps of hotel heiress Paris Hilton and former wild child Nicole Richie, who starred in five series of The Simple Life from 2003 to 2007.
The show followed the wealthy pair’s exploits as they left behind their mobile phones and credit cards and were challenged to undertake a number of manual, low-paying jobs.
Steve and Alex to return for the fourth series
The line-up for this year’s Let’s Dance for Sport Relief has been revealed, with a whole host of famous faces ready to recreate some of the nation’s best-loved dance routines.
Among the celebrity contestants appearing this year are Radio One DJ Scott Mills and X Factor’s Olly Murs, former England Cricketer Darren Gough, Tracy Beaker actress Dani Harmer and former Olympian Fatima Whitbread.

The show will be hosted once again by Steve Jones and Alex Jones, with former X Factor USA presenter Steve saying:
“The BBC, Let’s Dance, and Alex Jones… three of my favourite things. I couldn’t ask for a better show to come home to… I can’t wait!”
Co-presenter Alex added:
“I am so excited to be back on such a great show with the fabulous Steve Jones. After my time on Strictly I am only sorry that it won’t be me dancing the night away!”
Each week, a mix of solo dancers, duos and groups will perform iconic dance routines in front of a live studio audience and performances will be reviewed by a panel of three famous judges.
Both judges and viewers will vote for their favourite two acts to go through to the grand final on 17 March, where the eight finalists will dance again with the hope of being crowned Let’s Dance champion 2012.
