Amy Childs has sparked concern amongst her fans with her latest pregnancy craving.

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Amy took to Twitter to reveal what she can’t do without.

She wrote: “Seriously crunching ice cubes?? Why is this my new obsession?”

Her followers were quick to respond, advising her to seek medical advice as the craving could mean she has health issues.

One follower replied: “Definitely a sign of anaemia, get your bloods checked.”

Another responded: “It can indicate iron deficiency. Just get your haemoglobin checked at the next antenatal.”

And another follower who had the same craving, wrote: “Apparently it’s because your body is craving iron.”

Unusual cravings during pregnancy are not uncommon with some eating abnormal items such as coal, soil or chalk.

A craving for something you would not normally eat for more than a month is called Pica.

Reality star Amy is not the only star to have eaten ice cubes while she’s expecting - Katie Price also had this craving in the past.
