Britain's Got Talent: Carmen Electra To Replace Amanda Holden For 3 Days

Carmen Electra is set to show off her judging skills by stepping in to cover Amanda Holden at the Britain's Got Talent auditions for three days.

Amanda was released from hospital last week after the traumatic birth of daughter Hollie Rose on 23 January and reports suggest she is keen to reclaim her place on the TV panel in Edinburgh later this month.

The blonde beauty reportedly told a friend: "I'm much stronger and thrilled with my new family. I'm hoping to go back to Britain's Got Talent in Edinburgh - I feel so much better it is fantastic."

However, it seems the 40 year old is no rush to get back to work and boss Simon Cowell has drafted in Carmen as a guest judge for the auditions at London's Hammersmith Apollo from Monday.

A source tells the Daily Mirror: "Simon took a fancy to Carmen and decided to fly her over. She looks great and is very opinionated, but there is a concern from some of the BGT production crew that she will not be the most familiar face to all the viewers. But as usual, what Simon says, he usually gets."

Myleene Klass and Samantha Womack were previously tipped to judge the London try-outs.
