Amanda Holden is no stranger to sharing the odd bikini snap here or there, but she has revealed that when she is on holidays she likes to take it one step further.
Speaking with Alan Carr on his Life’s A Beach podcast, the Britain’s Got Talent judge, 50, said she much prefers to spend her time nude.
She explained that she likes to sunbathe and swim naked, all in the privacy of her own villa.
‘I never wear a bikini on holiday but I wouldn’t mix with other nudists. There’s a difference… I have served the Sunday lunch naked!’ Amanda said.
The media personality also stated that she is not afraid to lodge a complaint in hotels if her expectations are not met.
‘Because my mum used to run a small hotel, I always start with a compliment or something positive first and then I go in and go, “Listen, this is not what we were expecting, this table isn’t great”,’ she said.
‘If you’re really polite, it doesn’t matter who you are, you can get better service if you ask nicely. So I never have been rude – I do get things changed.’
She also spoke about her husband, Chris Hughes, with who she shares daughters Lexi, 15, and nine-year-old Hollie.
‘My husband Chris hides behind my skirts, so he’ll go, “Mandy tell them, Mandy can we change this room, Mandy this table’s not good enough, you tell them.”
‘If there’s a noise in the middle of the night he just nudges me and goes, “I just heard someone downstairs, go see what it is.” I’m not even joking!’
Amanda recently urged the Government to ‘stop isolating kids’, saying that she wants to see her children ‘happy, healthy and thriving in school’.
In an Instagram post, she shared a selfie with her children Alexa and Hollie, alongside a caption expressing how ‘strongly’ she feels about Covid-19 isolation rules for schools.
On the Government’s website, it states that students, members of staff and other adults must not come into school if they have been ‘in close contact with someone who tests positive for Covid-19’, adding that if an individual is told to self-isolate because they have been in close contact with someone who tested positive, they have a ‘legal obligation to do so’.
The Government emphasises that using ‘bubbles’ in schools makes it ‘easier in the event of a positive case to identify those who may need to self-isolate’ – meaning that if a pupil tests positive, all of the classmates in their bubble would be told to self-isolate.
In her Instagram post caption, Amanda urged people who feel ‘strongly about #covid isolation in schools’ to ‘send a letter to your MP’, in addition to contacting the Children’s Commissioner.
‘Matt Hancock said we have special rules for elite football because it “brings people joy”. As a parent, what brings me joy is seeing my children happy, healthy and thriving in school,’ she wrote.
Amanda added that in her view, it’s ‘very clear where the Government’s priorities lie, and it’s not with children’.
