Amanda Holden says Piers Morgan is punching above his weight with fit wife

TV host Amanda Holden made a cheeky swipe at friend and former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan when she spoke about his wife.

The Britain's Got Talent judge joined Paul O'Grady on his Saturday Night Line Up and was asked to share an embarrassing moment she had at a glitzy showbiz party.

During her recollection though, she made a comment that poor Piers Morgan is "punching" above his weight with his "fit" wife Celia.

And to add to the blow, the 50-year-old was discussing the couple's wedding.

Amanda was left red-faced after the embarrassing moment, which she said her husband Chris Hughes had to step in to help her out.

Host Paul asked the star: "I’ve been to a few showbiz parties with you and you are very well-behaved I have to say.”

But Amanda was quick to admit: “Well I think one of the stupidest things I’ve ever done was when Piers Morgan got married.

“Yes, somebody married Piers Morgan. Celia, and she’s really fit as well, he’s really punching!”

The audience erupted in laughter as she told her story.

“Anyway, he had like this do and he had it all in his back garden and everything, it was absolutely beautiful,” she continued.

Amanda explained how for entertainment to break the ice at the party, there was a man performing magic tricks.

The stunned mum told the performer that he was "absolutely brilliant" and told him she worked on Britain's Got Talent and she could 'get him in with the producers'.

But after she had asked him to consider auditioning for the reality TV show her husband Chris had to step him.

Amanda recalled: "“And then Chris, my husband said, ‘Amanda, it’s Dynamo!’”

Paul winced at the cringey moment saying: "Ooooh!"

But the audience loved the awkward blunder and the studio began laughing.

Amanda hid her face in shame and concluded: “I was like, ‘Well I was right then, I was right.’"
