AMY Childs has revealed that her ex-boyfriend Bradley Wright is back behind bars after being sent down for arson.
Amy, 29, has said she “wasn’t shocked” when she discovered that Bradley – who is the father of her eldest child Polly – was in prison again.
Builder Bradley has previously served time for both theft and handling stolen goods.
He is now awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty at Basildon Crown Court to arson, dishonesty receiving stolen goods and dangerous driving.
Speaking to new! magazine, former Towie star Amy recalled how she found out about Bradley’s latest convictions.
She said: “I got a phone call, I wasn’t shocked at all. Now I feel for Polly because she’s going to have a dad in prison.
“I don’t want it to be embarrassing for her. It’s such a small area so people will know Brad and I don’t want that for her.”
In 2014, while dating Amy, Bradley was handed an 18-month prison sentence for handling stolen goods.
Amy later revealed that she suffered from a breakdown when he went to prison and they split.
However, once on the outside, she rekindled her relationship with Bradley and they went on to have a baby together, daughter Polly.
Amy and Bradley then split just six weeks after Polly’s birth in April 2017.
In her interview with new!, Amy said Bradley has only ever seen his daughter – who is now two years old – just four times in her life, with the last time being 18 months ago.
She revealed she “definitely” will not be taking Polly to visit her father in prison and would explain to her why he isn’t in her life when she is older.
Bradley’s has a long criminal record, having also received a sentence of 16 months at Basildon Crown Court in 2013 for three counts of theft.

Amy had fallen pregnant a few months after she had begun dating high-flying businessman Ritchie, but they quietly called time on their relationship seven months ago.
