Amy Childs is a fan of the older 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates. The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star - who was a contestant on the Channel 5 reality show in 2011 - loves the more mature contestants in the house, especially 'EastEnders' actress Cheryl Fergison. Amy told new! magazine: ''I'm so pleased 'CBB' is back. It's one of my favourite shows. I love the line-up this year especially Cheryl Fergison. I met her on 'Loose Women' once and thought she was hilarious. ''It's an older house but I think that can be a good thing. I got along much better with the older housemates, like Paddy Doherty and Darryn Lyons when I was in there.'' The glamorous beautician recently took part in the 'CBB' spin-off show 'Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side' and she firmly believes her fellow panellist and 'Loose Women' star Carol McGiffin would have been the perfect addition to the house, which also includes Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend Jasmine Lennard, Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, MC Harvey and controversial Daily Mail journalist Samantha Brick. Amy said: ''I went on 'Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side' last week. I was on the panel with my cousin Harry [Derbidge] and Carol McGiffin. ''I love Carol - she is so funny - and I think she would be a great housemate herself! I don't think she'd ever go in though. ''She was there to support her friend Coleen Nolan.''
