It's The Simple Life for Amy Childs and Harry Derbidge

Amy ChildsAmy Childs and Harry Derbidge are to appear in a British version of The Simple Life.

The duo, former ‘stars’ of ITV2‘s The Only Way is Essex, are to remade the American reality series The Simple Life for Channel Five. Amy Childs had stated she had further projects lined up with Channel Five following the cancellation of her low-rated series It’s All About Amy though she tried to claim it was only ever meant to run for eight episodes.

The Simple Life followed socialites Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie who, each week, had to undertake another low paid job such as running a farm, working in a bar, being waitresses. The format for the Channel Five version ‘starring’ Childs and Derbidge will remain the same with the Essex duo taking on new jobs each week – apparently they will spend a day underground in a Welsh mine! Just a day though? Couldn’t they stay underground in the Welsh mine for a ‘little’ longer than that?
