After admitting that she thinks he's definitely The One, Amy Childs has sparked fears that there's trouble in paradise with boyfriend Billy Delbosq.

Last week, Amy's fans noticed that she had removed many loved up snaps of herself and Billy from her Instagram AND unfollowed him.

But it seems like it all might have been a storm in a prosecco glass for, after getting wind of the rumours, Amy took to Instagram stories to share a snap of herself alongside Billy as they enjoyed a date night at Claridges in London.

However, despite the united front, a source has revealed that they have had a "turbulent few weeks."

"Amy hasn’t split up with Billy, but they did have a discussion to work a few things out.

“They have been under a lot of pressure. Amy is in the process of selling her house and it all became too much," a source told OK!.

The TOWIE legend confirmed she was dating the Essex business owner last summer when she shared a snap of them looking cosy in the back of a car.

Amy captioned the post, “I’ve found him …. ❤️.”

Opening up about her relationship while chatting to cousin Harry Derbidge during an episode of The Only Way is Essex, Amy even hinted that marriage could be on the cards and called Billy her "Prince Charming".

She told Harry, “You know me inside out, you know I do rush into things, I definitely do and I’ve genuinely got to say, I’m definitely in love with him.

“I know, honestly… I can’t. I’m just so happy. I know I’m in love with him because I’ve told him I’d love to marry him and he said he wants to marry me as well.”

One of the biggest storylines of the first season of TOWIE was Kirk and Amy's flirtationship. The pair briefly dated but split in 2011. In 2013, Kirk admitted he will "love Amy until the day I die". He added, "She is literally like the girl version of me. When it didn't work out, it broke my heart really... and it wasn't her fault, it was both of our fault."

Amy’s romance with Billy came just months after she split from her ex-boyfriend Tim who she met shortly after taking part in Celebs Go Dating in 2019.

After 14 months of dating, Amy "secretly split" from Tim in July 2021, after realising things were not the same between them.

A source told MailOnline, “Amy and Tim are both heartbroken.

"They really hoped to make the relationship work, but the romance between them fizzled out.

"The breakup is still raw, so Amy is taking some time for herself in Ibiza, where she can have some space to get over things."

Following her split with Tim, who moved in her plush Essex pad in lockdown, Amy has admitted they are no longer on speaking terms.

Explaining the reason for their break-up, she told OK!, “Tim and I got together in lockdown. There was so much going on, I was seeing him and then he was there all the time, and before you know it I was in a relationship. It was all so 'guns blazing', but over the two years we did have problems and it wasn’t plain sailing. We did really try to make it work.

“We were with each other every single day and we were like a married couple. We couldn’t go anywhere, nowhere was open and you don’t really know someone until a good 18-months in and we just didn’t get on any more.”
