Amanda Holden Jokes About Her Home Life: 'My Husband Is Prioritised After The Pet Fish'

The 'BGT' judge opens up about a rather private topic.

Amanda Holden has never been one to shy away from a slightly saucy topic of conversation, and true to form, the star has opened up about her home life in a typically hilarious fashion, during a new interview.

The star, who’ll return to our screens when ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ airs next month, has revealed that her hectic schedule means she rarely gets to spend alone time - yes, that sort of alone time - with her husband, Chris Hughes.

Speaking to the Mirror, she explains that a number of things often get in the way of errrm, private time with Chris, including their two kids… and one of the family’s aquatic pets.

“We’re both so busy,” she laughs. "It’s about trying to carve out a bit of time for us - we have to explain to the girls that they must go to bed and let us have time alone, which is hard.

"My poor husband - he’s so far down the list. He’s prioritised after the pet fish.”


Amanda, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell recently finished filming the 2016 ‘BGT’ auditions, and as usual, plenty of fun was had along the way.

In London, one session of auditions had to halted, when Amanda chucked three glasses of water over Simon, after disagreeing with his comments.

The unimpressed music mogul then said: “This very childish behaviour and she’s ruined a £50,000 microphone.”
