The 21-year-old The Only Way is Essex star, who recently came fourth in Celebrity Big Brother, said that she wants to find a man with a "good personality" who is "good looking" so that she can settle down.
Childs told the Daily Star Sunday: "I miss having a boyfriend and it would be nice to have someone to cuddle. I want to find someone who can make me laugh and has a good personality.
"I want someone good looking. But the most important thing is their sense of humour. I want to get married and start a family when I'm 25 so I haven't got long!
She also revealed that she is close to signing a deal for her own reality series and said: "I want people to see the real me. I'd just be myself and it would be really fun. You'd get to see me doing photoshoots, opening my own business and out with friends."
Childs split from boyfriend Joe Hurlock in July this year, after she admitted that he found it "hard" to cope with rumours of her being romantically linked to celebrities such as Peter Andre and Olly Murs.
