Chatting to presenter Emma Willis during an Instagram Live, Amanda spoke about her relationship with boss Simon Cowell.

She said: “We tell each other everything, I’m very close to him… and I’m really grateful, it’s paid my mortgage for years.”

Discussing the BGT judging panel which currently consists of herself, Simon, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, Amanda added: “For him not to have changed it when he could have done – we do get on very well and you can’t fake it that kind of chemistry.”

As the two glam ladies on set, she said of herself and Alesha: “We wear slippers under the desk, we eat food, we wear Spanx…

“And then when David came he pushes all of Simon’s buttons, and we got to see that and the relationship between them has lifted the show. So all of us, the four, it works really well – we’re so lucky.”

The relaxed chat with Emma saw Amanda relaxing in the garden as she discussed the talent show and lockdown life.

Earlier today, the mum-of-two posted a TikTok video of herself with daughter Alexa.
