It's clearly been some time since Amy Childs has had any exposure to news that didn't involve her hair.

A video clip of BBC interviewer Jolyon Rubinstein grilling Childs on the red carpet at the MOBO Awards has gone viral after he asked the reality star her thoughts on the ebola crisis.

She first responds, ""The what?" with a puzzled look on her face, before adding: "I might be a big fan after tonight. They're going to be amazing"

He posted a clip of the video on Instagram and the 24-year-old has yet to comment on the social media uproar.

Her lack of current affairs knowledge may be explained by her one-woman mission to find a man.

"I’m now ready to meet someone. I work seven days a week, I live on my own, I’ve got a dog, I’m ready to be with someone but I’m not going to rush into anything. I’m dating, but I’m not getting married or anything. It’s all good," she told the Mail Online.
