‘He keeps me sane’: Amanda Holden reveals her ‘very strong and sensible’ husband Chris Hughes helps her ignore cruel trolls on social media
Amanda Holden thinks her husband helps to keep her ‘sane’ when she is targeted by trolls on social media.
The star, 49, has learned to cope with the nasty comments over time and has hailed the influence of her husband, songwriter Chris Hughes.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge – who has Hollie, eight, and Alexa, 14, with Chris – told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: ‘I’m so lucky that when I started out, social media wasn’t invented because I might not have got through it.

‘It’s difficult but I am very lucky because I’ve got a very strong relationship.
‘I’ve got a very strong husband who is very sensible and not like me in any way. He cuts through all the bull***t and keeps me sane.’
In fact, Amanda – who has been married to Chris since 2008 – thinks their relationship can help her to overcome any problem.

But the TV star previously hit back at the criticism, saying she sees the show as an ‘opportunity to take risks’.
Amanda explained: ‘I dress to feel confident. I try not to think about age anymore when I’m dressing.
‘My children don’t bat an eyelid at what I wear and love borrowing my clothes. Of course, I have fun on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ – it’s the perfect opportunity to take risks.
‘Outrageous’: Amanda has admitted that she ‘flashes her boobs’ on purpose and pretends to be ‘outrageous’ on Britain’s Got Talent
‘Times have changed and I don’t feel anyone should feel pressure to dress for your age.’
One look even sparked 663 Ofcom complaints and another caused her an embarrassing nip slip live on air.
The radio presenter, who has also come under fire for her past swearing on BGT live shows, has now admitted it is all part of her stunt.
Talking to The Sun, she said: ‘Even though I am really open and very much myself most of the time, it’s a fake circumstance when you’re sitting on a panel and judging.
‘I’m very aware of myself and what I should say next. Sometimes I pretend I’m not and I’m outrageous, and I’m like, “Oh I had no idea I was going to say that”, or my boob pops out, “I had no idea that was going to happen!”
‘You have circumstances where you know what you’re doing and the situation is always ongoing, so you are always aware.’
