‘It’s all about the lockdown loving’: Amanda Holden reveals self-isolation has boosted her sex life as she admits her marriage to husband Chris Hughes is better than ever
Amanda Holden has revealed Britain’s ongoing lockdown has been great for her marriage, saying she and husband Chris Hughes have been indulging in some ‘lockdown loving’.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 49, said spending more time than ever with Chris has been great for the couple’s relationship as they quarantine together at home with their children during the pandemic.
Speaking to The Sun, Amanda said: ‘This whole thing has been great for my marriage. I know people are talking about it causing spikes in baby-making and divorce rates, but for us it has been brilliant.

‘I’m too old for more babies but our relationship is stronger than ever. It’s all about the lockdown loving. You’d never know it because whenever I post photos online Chris refuses to be in them — or he takes them — but getting all this time together for once has been great.’
Amanda and Chris have been married since 2008 and are parents to daughters Alexa, 14, and Hollie, eight.
Amanda has been keeping her social media followers entertained with her humorous snaps while she has also displayed her jaw-dropping physique in a series of bikini selfies.
The radio presenter admitted she tends to avoid reading the more lustful comments on her photos.

She said: ‘Sometimes they’re funny, but sometimes I weigh them up and I think, “Hmm, no”. But I’m happy to keep putting them out there. They are for my own amusement really.’
Amanda added that she tries not to take life too seriously and always looks on the bright side, saying she would have fallen down a black hole by now if she didn’t.

It comes after the star recently shed some light on when the Britain’s Got Talent live shows will take place after the COVID-19 crisis halted production on the current series.
The show has been airing the pre-recorded audition episodes on Saturday nights, as is always the case this time of the year.
Amanda told MailOnline producers have tentative plans to film the live finals in the autumn, around the time The X Factor – which is not returning this year – should usually be broadcast.
‘We have got some dates in our diaries,’ she said. ‘It’s difficult because I can’t say when because it’s all TBC. But it’s hopefully looking to be in the early autumn.’
Amanda stressed the importance of having a live studio audience for BGT, and that the show wouldn’t be the same without that atmosphere after the BBC’s autumn powerhouse Strictly Come Dancing have reportedly considered going ahead without a crowd.

She said: ‘We just can’t do it without an audience. For this show we need the British public on the stage and behind us in the audience. We need that atmosphere.’
Amanda also looked on the bright side of this happening, admitting that it’s nice to have the series drawn out over the course of the year.
‘It’s always over so quickly. We show the auditions and then we have the live shows that happen in the space of a week.
‘But doing it this way, there’s something to look forward to later in the year,’ she mused. ‘It’s nice to have it in April/May and the autumn too.’
