The businesswoman, 25, hasn't been seen on screen since 2011, when she left The Only Way Is Essex after just two series, but on yesterday's episode, her name was thrown about all over the place.
Why? Well, it's because she reportedly snogged TOWIE newbie Mike Hassini, 21, at Sheesh Chigwell earlier this week... and as we're always told, everyone in Essex knows everyone else's business!
We already knew that Amy and Mike had been spotted on a date so that wasn't a surprise to hear. It was a surprise though to hear her name mentioned so often, considering how past TOWIE castmembers are rarely mentioned! When's the last time you heard Sam Faiers' name? Or Lucy Meck? Or even recent departees like Mario Falcone and Ricky Rayment?!
It all started when Liam Blackwell told Pete Wicks, Bobby Cole Norris and James Lock the goss, which he'd heard from Nicole Bass, who was a bit peeved as Mike had been chasing her.
Liam said: "I heard someone else got pied last night... Nicole was pretty upset. She said she saw Mike kissing Amy Childs."
We then heard Nicole telling ex-boyfriend Lewis Bloor - who wants her back - about what happened.
She said: "I haven't heard from Mike in a few days. I went to a restaurant for my birthday and Mike was at the bar snogging Amy Childs' face off. And he's not spoke to me since. I don't think he was that into me anyway."
Later in the episode, Mike confirmed the kiss himself, when he told Nicole he'd done nothing wrong, as he and Nicole are both single and he felt it was clear nothing would develop with Nicole.
"Obviously everyone has been speaking and I want to apologise to you for the other night for what I did, in front of your face, in the same building," he said. "I am single and so are you. I can like you and you can say you like me but still go out on dates with Lewis."
So clearly the whole Mike / Nicole possible romance is over... but what about Mike / Amy?!!
Neither has referenced the kiss on Twitter, but Amy did acknowledge that she was mentioned in the show, retweeting Vas J Morgan who said he wanted an Amy Childs return to TOWIE. SO DO WE!!
