Amanda Holden wowed in a figure-hugging pink rubber dress as Britain’s Got Talent returned to our screens on Saturday night. And she sported a very different sensational look as she soaked up the sun on holiday in California.
The BGT judge looked stunning as she shared snaps from her break with her 1.8 million Instagram followers. She felt temperatures soaring as she showcased her toned figure in a gold animal print patterned bikini.
West End star and radio presenter Amanda, 51, caused jaws to drop in her skimpy two-piece as she posed in the sunshine. She captioned the post: “Happy Easter Sunday. Did you all enjoy @BGT? More tonight from 7:35pm.”

In one snap she tilted back her head as she ran a hand through her blonde locks while posing by the pool. And the mother-of-two dipped her toes in the water as she sunbathed.
And in another holiday picture she struck a pose in front of the famous Santa Monica Pier in the same bikini worn with tiny denim shorts. She donned a pair of oversized sunglasses and an Adidas baseball hat to protect herself from the rays.
And fans rushed to pay her compliments as fellow TV star Davina McCall urged jokingly: “Can u please stop it Amanda?” And she continued: “You look way too good. And it’s really annoying.”
hecatepentangle_22 said with flame emojis: “HAWT AMANDAAA.” johnnyramone23 told her: “Absolutely stunning.” And aharp82 gasped with a flame emoji: “Wow.”
In the first episode of the 2022 series of the ITV talent show Amanda wore a showstopping bubblegum-coloured outfit. The show opened with Titan a giant mechanical robot roasting the judges with comical song and dance routines and the song he chose for Amanda was Aqua’s Barbie Girl as she danced along in her seat wearing Barbie doll’s signature colour.
@harryyheart tweeted: “Amanda’s dress is soooo pretty.” @hanrickard commented: “Amanda’s dress is to die for tbh what a queen.” bngtnstrictly said: “Amanda is also as pretty as ever omg.” And @LynnMcLean01 exclaimed: “Amanda Holden is HOT!!”
There was controversy as a singer from the box office smash The Greatest Showman blew judges away as she performed the powerful ballad Never Enough from the 2017 musical film starring Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron.
New York singer Loren Allred received a standing ovation as she showcased her incredible vocals and Amanda gave Loren the coveted golden buzzer which sends acts straight through to the semi-finals. Loren explained that people wo n’t recognize her Ella face because actress Rebecca Ferguson played the character of Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind in the movie and mimed her Ella vocals.
But viewers took to Twitter to make the point that Loren, who in 2019 duetted with Michael Bublé on his track Help Me Make it Through the Night, already had a successful career in music. @nerdyme316 quipped: “Next time on #BGT a little known act called Elton John will be singing.” And @pocock_louise wrote: “ella She’s on a British talent show but ella she’s not from Britain and ella shes already sang on one of the lost iconic films of all time.”
But @letthatlightin tweeted: “Loren Allred is a phenomenal singer and I absolutely have not watched every live performance of hers that exists on YouTube. Seriously she is a dream, she deserves the world.” And @superTV247 defended: “Sorry but Loren Allred is literal proof that ghost singers deserve more. The voice of one of THE biggest songs known today, and yet nobody knows her? Nobody knows her face, her music? She’s deserves this Golden Buzzer as much as anybody!!!!!”
