Keeping it in the family! Harry Derbidge celebrates launch of new unisex jewellery range… with the help of cousin Amy Childs
Proud cousin: Harry Derbidge was joined by Amy Childs for the launch of his new Lemonade jewelry range at the Jewel bar this evening
He’s recently announced his departure from the show that made his name, The Only Way Is Essex.
But 17-year-old Harry Derbidge isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
The teenager celebrated the launch of his new unisex jewellery line for Lemonade at London’s Jewel bar last night – and his glamorous cousin Amy Childs was there to lend him her support.
Branching out: Both Harry and Amy have moved on to their own projects post-TOWIE
The pair were smart in matching black as
they kissed and posed together, welcoming former TOWIE co-stars Gemma
Collins and Lauren Pope.
Gemma looked thrilled to celebrate her friend’s new venture, looking pretty in a sparkly pink and nude top paired with her usual volumised hair.
Lauren meanwhile worked a black and white casual T-shirt and skinny-fit trousers.
Trying new things: Harry made a less successful foray into the beauty business during his time on TOWIE when he worked briefly at Amy’s salon
Working it: The teen wore an odd combination of a navy velvet jacket and black jeans, but there was no mistaking his Lemonade skull necklace
Teenager Derbidge announced that he was leaving TOWIE on his Twitter page last week.
He wrote: ‘Hiya! I really did not want you to all find out so soon but its out there, I am not in TOWIE any more as I am moving on to different things.
‘Thank you all for your support and keep following and checking out, and I will see you on all on tv again very soon.’

Familiar faces: Gemma Collins and Lauren Pope both turned up to celebrate alongside their former co-star
The news came amid rumours show bosses were struggling to find storylines for him following the departure of Childs.
Speculation has also been rife that Harry’s co-stars Sam Faiers and Lauren Pope have been given the chop by producers to make way for new talent.
A source recently said: ‘There is a big TOWIE shake-up happening for series four. Bosses are keen to keep the format fresh. Producers have already been scouting for great people around Essex. Series three was the highest rated so far and they’re keen to build on that.’
On the red carpet: Jay Camilleri and Nikki Grahame both showed their faces
Meanwhile Maria Fowler, who like Harry will not be returning for season four of TOWIE, has revealed she intends to marry her footballer boyfriend Lee Croft, despite only dating for four months.
She told Reveal magazine: ‘We have not been together long but we talk about our future every day. I’ve never felt like this about anyone before.’
