Amanda Holden ‘spends a lot of time naked’ as she talks cooking in the nude

Amanda Holden has revealed she barbecues in the nude and regularly spends time naked at her home.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 51, opened up about her homely exhibitionism, admitting she does cover up when the in-laws are around for Christmas.

Speaking to OK!, Amanda, who is wed to record producer Chris Hughes, said: “I spend a lot of time naked in my house. I like to cook naked, but that’s normally during barbecue season because I’m in the middle of sunbathing then I come in to do the tea.

“Chris can’t cook at all. If I’m working all day, I have to prep food for the kids because his idea of food is taramasalata, toast and a bag of Haribo!

She adds: “When there are in-laws around I’m less with everythinghanging out!"

The star, who has Lexie, 16, and Hollie, 10, said neither of them were remotely surprised by the nude cheffing.

Viewers are used to seeing Amanda in debate-sparking outfits on screen and in the media. One of her low-cut Britain’s Got Talent dress choices received 235 Ofcom complaints. And in the past week alone, her choice to go to work braless in a fitted green dress with nipples on show dominated headlines as she unapologetically continues to defy the notion that women in their fifties should dress more conservatively.

“That really p**ses me off,” says the 51-year-old, of the concept she should dress for her age. “Age shouldn’t come into anything that makes you feel better, especially what you choose to wear. I’ve always had my own beauty standards and I use my nan as an example. She says, ‘Never see your husband without lipstick’. That’s obviously rubbish!

“But I’ve always wanted to present myself well. It’s a self-preservation and dignity thing. However I’ve felt, to the outside world I’ve presented confidently, because that’s my armour and that’s how I soldier on. Then I deal with everything else privately.”

It’s this honesty that has established Amanda as one of the most successful working women on TV, with a career spanning more than 25 years.

“It’s all about authenticity,” she says. “In presenting and hosting, you can’t pretend to be someone else – you have to be yourself on both sides of the camera because people aren’t stupid. It’s not having an ego. I can’t lie. Often that’s gone wrong – I wear my heart on my sleeve and I make no apologies for that.”
