The Simpleton Life?

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.

Meet the Desperate Scousewives

E4 have revealed the cast for their brand new reality show, Desperate Scousewives.

Set in Liverpool, the show’s said to be based around WAGs, football and fashion, with the Channel hoping to emulate the success of similar shows such as Made in Chelsea and The Only Way is Essex.

According to the press material, the show will reveal the truth behind “the blonde hair, ‘Scouse eyebrows’, football matches and club nights” and will follow the lives of “real guys and girls determined to make a name for themselves”.

So what do you think about the line-up? A true representation of Liverpool? Or will it all go a bit Geordie Shore?

Desperate Scousewives premieres on Monday, 28 November at 10pm on E4.

TOWIE sisters Sam and Billie attacked

'Brutal attack'

The Only Way is Essex stars Sam and Billie Faiers are recovering after an “unprovoked” attack by a gang of women, according to reports.

The trouble started on 22 October, when a group of girls targeted Billie in The Jet Black Club, stealing her £1,500 Mulberry handbag containing cash and her mobile phone.

According to the Daily Mail, the two reality stars complained to bouncers, who then threw the trouble-makers out, but as 21-year-old Billie left, she was attacked by the same girls.

Footage captured by a passer-by appears to show Billie being thrown to the floor, having her hair grabbed and being sworn at.

Later that night, Sam, 20, and a friend were also attacked, after meeting the group to get her sister’s phone back.

The 10 girls then ran off, leaving the TOWIE star for dead.

A spokesman for the Faiers sisters described it as an “unprovoked and horrific attack”.

Sam is said to have suffered two black eyes, a swollen nose and bruises and was rushed to hospital for a brain scan in the wake of the attack.

Last night, Billie took to her Twitter page to thank fans for their messages of support, while this morning Sam tweeted:

“Just want to say a big thank you to everyone. I love u all lots. Am resting up all day :-) thank you for your kind messages x x”

She and Billie are now said to be “recovering at home”.
