Inside Amy Childs's close relationship with 'genius' son Richie, 3, and why he's NEVER seen on Towie

TOWIE's Amy Childs has opened up about her super-smart son Ritchie, saying he's destined for university.

The 31-year-old reality star is now starring on the ITVBe star alongside her daughter Polly – but her three-year-old lad won't be appearing.


The star, who recently split from boyfriend Tim, has a longstanding agreement with Ritchie's dad to keep him off not just TV but social media too.

Speaking about the lad in an interview with New magazine, she explained: "He knows a few words, but he’s so intelligent, he knows all his numbers.

"I’m already thinking of university for my little Ritch, definitely."

Saying the long-haired lad is "very quiet" unlike his older sister, Amy added: "He's a mummy's boy and he's like my double."

Asked if she was enjoying her latest stint on Towie, she went on: "I love it!

"I’ve got Polly on the show that made me successful and now I’ve got my daughter on it, I feel proud.

"Towie has always been a part of my life, and I always thought about when the right time is to go back and this is so the right time."

Speaking about allowing her daughter on Towie last year, Amy told The Sun: "Putting her on the show was obviously something I needed to think about very carefully, especially as I don't put Ritchie on social media.

"I want to clear this up too because I get a lot of messages on social media every single day saying 'why do you always put up pictures of your daughter and not your son?'

I’m already thinking of university for my little Ritch, definitely

"Or 'Why is Polly on the show and not Ritchie?' 'Do you love your daughter more?' etc.

"I must get about 20 messages a day about Ritchie, but basically me and Ritchie's dad agreed together not to put Ritchie on social media or Towie.

"We won't put him on social media or TV until he is old enough to make that decision himself.

"He is a beautiful little boy, he is like a mini-me and of course I love him every bit as much as Polly. Polly has a different dad and I made a different decision with Polly and it is that simple."
