Amber Turner laughs off haters and has “no intention” of leaving The Only Way Is Essex
Amber Turner has hit back at fans demanding her withdrawal from The Only Way Is Essex.
The TOWIE newbie has caused quite the stir since arriving on the ITVBe series, but it was the last straw for some viewers after her behaviour in last week’s episode.
Amber had made a snide remark about her co-star Chloe Meadows, who had actually been trying to stick up for Amber during an argument with her ex-boyfriend Jamie Reed. The comment attracted criticism from those watching at home, with some fans demanding her exit from the show. One person tweeted: “Amber T needs to get fired from #TOWIE. Can’t stand her.”
However, apparently Amber has been laughing off the abuse, insisting she’s only “telling it like it is.”
A source told The Sun: “Amber is a very real person who speaks the truth.
“She’s been surprised by the negative reaction of some TOWIE viewers online as she’s a private person and would never air any of her grievances so publicly.
“But the fact is all she’s doing is being honest, which other cast-members don’t seem to be doing.
“She enjoys being on the show and has no intention of quitting.
“Amber will also never consider changing her ways.”
In fact, show bosses are far from firing the reality star. It turns out they are actually pretty impressed by her contribution to the series so far and hope she’ll continue as “one of the mainstays”.
A TOWIE insider said: “Amber has certainly ruffled a few feathers but every show needs someone that – otherwise it will be boring.
“Producers have been really impressed by her attitude, too, as she had no qualms about bringing the good, bad and ugly of her life onto camera – never hiding away.
“The hope is she’ll continue to be one of the mainstays in the cast for future series.”
The Only Way Is Essex continues tonight (Wednesday) at 10pm on ITVBe.
