Talking exclusively to omg!, the TV personality told us that although she thought the cast performed well and they did their best, it was confusing when conversions were cut short and you couldn't hear them.
She told us: "I think the TOWIE cast did brilliantly. They are a great cast all of them, they had banter but people love TOWIE the way it is.
"My advice is to not do TOWIE live again. I love the show, I watch the show, I'm a big fan.
Amy Childs believes that live television is a lot more difficult to pull off than pre-recorded programming and this is where she feels the program came unstuck.
She explained: "I think it is so hard to go live, Emmerdale and Coronation Street have done it but I think it was quite a lot of hard work for them.
"I think the characters did really well, Kirk when he sang was so good and I think he shocked people with that. Joey and Sam, everyone loves them as a couple, also did really well."

However, Amy did applaud the fact that the episode was done in aid of raising money for breast cancer care.
She said: "It was all for charity though which I think a lot of people didn't get the gist of."
Amy Childs is currently the face of mobile phone retailer The Carphone Warehouse's new scheme 'Understanding Mobile Data for Dummies', a free book which will help customers get the most out of their mobile phone.
Talking about the book Amy said: "It is a brand new thing with The Carphone Warehouse that I'm proud to be a part of because I'm always on my phone with Twitter and Facebook- social networking is a massive thing for me. This little guide tells you what the right network is for you.
"The book is perfect for me- it actually tells you about your mobile data, what you use more-photos, internet- and it's a really good book. I recommend everyone goes to the Carphone Warehouse and to get the book."
