Amy Childs's safety measures for the London Marathon

Thursday April 18, 2013

Amy Childs has said her mother was making her take her mobile phone when she runs Sunday's London Marathon in case she gets lost during the race.

Amy, who shot to fame on The Only Way Is Essex, said she would not be changing her trademark glamorous style for the sake of the race, and wants to make sure she looks her best as she crosses the finish line.

She said: "I'm glamorous, I need to run in style, glam and vajazzle."

Amy, 22, added: "When I know I've only got one mile to do, I think I've got to glam myself up a bit. All jokes aside, I probably will put a little bit of lip gloss on."

The star, who already has a half marathon under her belt as part of her training, said she was "a changed woman" after her training regime and strict diet and was prepared for the day.

She said: "I've got a little pouch and I'm going to have my jelly babies, I'm going to have my lip gloss and my mum wants me to have my mobile phone in case I get lost."
