Amanda Holden Brings The Glamour At Simon Cowell's Summer Party, With Caroline Flack, Alesha Dixon, Nick Grimshaw And Louis Walsh Also In Attendance (PICS)

Amanda Holden channelled her inner 70s diva as she brought the glamour, at Simon Cowell’s end of summer party on Wednesday (9 September) night.


The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge went all ‘Charlie's Angels’ in a pair of white flares and a sheer white blouse for the bash, held at the Orangery in Kensington Gardens.

Amanda was joined by a whole host of names from Simon’s TV shows and artists from his Syco record label at the party, which was held to thank those who work for him.

Among those on the guest-list included ‘X Factor’ host Caroline Flack, judge Nick Grimshaw and ‘Xtra Factor’ duo Melvin Odoom and Rochelle Humes.

Alesha Dixon also turned up to represent ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, reuniting with Amanda following this year’s series, which saw dog act Jules and Matisse crowned winners.

Last year’s ‘X Factor’ winner Ben Haenow was also in attendance, as was long-forgotten 2013 contestant Tamera Foster, who signed a record deal with Syco after leaving the competition, but is yet to release any music.

And despite being axed from ‘The X Factor’ this year, Louis Walsh was also invited, amid reports Simon has been speaking to the former judge to help halt the show’s sliding ratings.

However, there were some notable absentees, including Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Rita Ora, Olly Murs and David Walliams, but we’re sure Sinitta’s inevitable presence at the party more than made up for them not being there.


After the bash, an elated Simon took to Twitter to thank viewers of his shows and buyers of his records.

“Hello. We had our first Summer party tonight for Syco. I realised how many fantastic artists we are lucky to work with and how much I recognise how hard the team at Syco work,” he wrote.

“And tonight felt positive. Success comes often via friendship and respect. It always takes a team. You don't always recognise that and I have been very lucky to have great partners.

“And very grateful for all the support to you for watching our shows and the fans of our artists. Said it before but always appreciated.

“Good night. And as you can see in a happy place tonight. X,” he added.
