The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has spoken out about her looks to insist she hasn't undergone any cosmetic procedures in over two years and only looks like she has because of clever make-up tricks.

She said: "Last week there were a few stories about me, 'Oh my god, Amy's had loads of work done.' I don't really know what to say about it - honestly I haven't had anything done! I've not had Botox for two or three years but I can make my lips look really big with make up.

"I guess it's just the lighting and my pose in pictures. I got a bit of a backlash from it and loads of people on Twitter have been commenting, but I want to tell all new! readers that I haven't had anything done... Maybe I should just stop posing!"

The 24-year-old beauty also defended her recent weight loss, insisting she's only dropped the pounds because her hectic schedule has caused her to miss out on the occasional meal.

Writing in her column for new! magazine, she added : "I have lost a bit of weight recently, which has made me look thinner in the face.

"I'm not as curvy as I was. Work has got on top of me recently and unfortunately I've missed a few meals, so the weight has dropped off. I am happy being a size 8, but I don't want to be any smaller."
