Amanda Holden Shares Photo Of Nine-Year-Old Daughter Dressed As Pretty Woman Prostitute

Amanda Holden has been criticised for sharing a photo of her nine-year-old daughter Lexi dressed up as Julia Roberts' prostitute character in the film Pretty Woman.

The image was shared on Twitter with the message: "1990's day at Lexi's school today. Julia Roberts 'Pretty Woman'."

The Britain's Got Talent judge quickly removed the photo following criticism from her fans – but the image has now been shared hundreds of times on Twitter.

Lexi wears a tight red dress and sparkly necklace in the photo, which was removed about eight minutes after it was first shared on her mum's social accounts.

Amanda, who is also mum to Hollie, three, released a statement following the backlash from her followers on social media. The actress and TV judge said Lexi was actually dressed as Cindy Crawford, and that her husband Chris Hughes had shared the image online by accident

It read: "The truth is that Lexi went to school as Cindy Crawford for her school '90s Day - not Julia Roberts - as anyone who heard me yesterday at BGT - and indeed the teachers at Lexi's school - will confirm.

"However my husband thought she looked more like Julia Roberts, without any thought to any interpretation.

"Although given that she is a nine-year old girl it seems completely unbelievable and disturbing that anyone could or would put such an interpretation on it.

"Julia is one of the most beautiful and iconic women in the world, so as a proud father, he wanted to post the similarity on his private Facebook page.

"He hit the wrong button and posted it on my Twitter account - but removed it as soon as he realised. The first I knew was when I was contacted by the media while filming today. My husband is mortified."
