Speaking on today's Loose Women, the beautician claimed that her former Only Way Is Essex castmate will "shock" viewers on the jungle reality show.
She said: "I think he's going to shock all of us, definitely. He's brilliant, I've always been a big fan of Mark. I think Mark will win, definitely.
"I reckon he'll be having a bit of a cuddle in there, I don't know who with though - you never know with Mark."
Childs, who quit TOWIE to take part in Celebrity Big Brother and pursue other projects, recently claimed that Wright would have more showbiz opportunities if he too left the ITV2 reality show.
