Amanda Holdens unusual career as she defiantly vows to wear sexy BGT outfits

Amanda Holden has had a long career in the limelight and defiantly says she has no plans to turn down her sexiest outfits.

The Britain's Got Talent (BGT) judge – the show returns this weekend – said she plans to wear more rubber outfits of her choice despite previous Ofcom complaints.

She said: "I'm thinking more rubber – I enjoyed wearing Latex in the auditions, so I'm thinking more Latex, more sweating in the lives."

Amanda scored a career-high of 663 complaints from angry viewers about her dress for the 2017 BGT final and has had other outfits sparking outrage from viewers.

However the singer, now 51, and talent show judge said she won't take any notice, pointing out she is of a new generation where people of all ages can wear whatever they want.

With BGT back, it is a reminder Amanda has been on our screens for what feels like decades.

Amanda Holden first appeared on our screens as a contestant on Blind Date in 1991.

Then 19, she didn't get picked, but caused the audience to laugh when she said to her date: "First of all, I'd have to come up with a nickname for your podgy bits, so you don't feel too embarrassed."

She then went on to have various acting credits such as Carmen on EastEnders for 5 episodes, as well as appearances on The Bill, Jonathan Creek and Kiss Me Kate.

Starting theatre from a young age, Amanda has always been drawn to the stage and screen, and gradually became more famous throughout the 2000s.

She appeared as Sarah Trevanian in three series of ITV's Wild At Heart alongside Stephen Tompkinson, but it was on stage where most of her plaudits came.

Amanda was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in the West End production of Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2014.

She took the BGT gig in 2007 and has remained famous ever since, catapulting her to household name status.

Who is Amanda Holden married to?

Amanda Holden has been married to record producer Chris Hughes since 2008 and they have had two children together.

Her relationships have often been in the headlines, first marrying comedian Les Dennis when she was 24 in 1995 – Dennis was 42 at the time.

In 2000 the couple split up briefly when Amanda's affair with Men Behaving Badly actor Neil Morrissey was exposed. They reunited but ended up divorcing in 2003.

Due to her affair, Amanda said it was BGT that changed people's perceptions of her.

Amanda told the Mirror: "Starting out on Britain's Got Talent was liberating for me.

"I mean, without dragging up my past, I think, at the time I was with Chris, we’d been together for something like five years but people still kept going on about Les and Neil, and all the other stuff."
