Amanda Holden is no stranger to controversy surrounding her wardrobe – especially from Britain’s Got Talent fans – but she really doesn’t care, admitting that she never thinks about her age when getting dressed.
The 48-year-old has said that she believes the live shows of the ITV reality show are ‘the perfect opportunity to take risks’.
‘I dress to feel confident. I try not to think about age anymore when I’m dressing,’ Amanda said.
‘My children don’t bat an eyelid at what I wear and love borrowing my clothes.’
In 2017, Britain’s Got Talent saw a record number of complaints to watchdog Ofcom, with many complaining over a £11,250 Julien Macdonald lace dress which Amanda wore on the live show.
The dress received more complaints than Russell Brand’s bad language and sexual references during Comic Relief.
In 2018 the judge wore a stunning bodysuit covered by a glittering see-through skirt – but calls for her ‘to put her boobs away’ rang through on social media.
‘Of course, I have fun on Britain’s Got Talent – it’s the perfect opportunity to take risks,’ Amanda has now told Daily Mail.
‘Times have changed and I don’t feel anyone should feel pressure to dress for your age. It’s all about body positivity and feeling good.’
Earlier in 2019, Amanda spoke of how controversial her dresses have become, admitting: ‘My t**s seem to become the show’s biggest talking point every year.
‘We’ve had plenty of complaints apparently, but none from home, let me tell you.’
