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.
