Amanda Holden might now be best known now for her nine-year spell on the judging panel of 'Britain's Got Talent', next to Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, but it was a long road to get there.
Long before 'BGT' made her a household name, Amanda made her first television appearance as a contestant on 'Blind Date', before starring in TV shows like 'Cutting It', 'Wild At Heart' and, believe it or not, 'EastEnders'.
Off the back of the new-found fame that her talent show judging has brought her, Amanda has more recently carved a niche for herself as a TV presenter, fronting Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Superstar' and co-presenting 'This Morning' with Phillip Schofield, while usual host Amanda Holden was on maternity leave.
She's also enjoyed success on the West End stage, earning an Olivier nomination for her role in 'Thoroughly Modern Millie', and later starring as Princess Fiona in 'Shrek: The Musical'.
Amanda has also been in the headlines thanks to her personal life, having previously been married to Les Dennis. She has two daughters with her current husband, record producer Chris Hughes, and regularly keeps fans up to date with her family life on her Twitter page.
