Amanda Holden popped the cork on some champagne as she reached the top of Ben Nevis after some "hairy moments" on her gruelling charity climb.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, 51, took on the Three Peaks Challenge, scaling the highest mountains of Wales, England and Scotland - Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.

It meant battling wind, rain and even snow as she climbed more than 10,000 feet in 24 hours.

Speaking as she reached the last summit, the TV star said it was "the hardest thing" she had ever done and that she was "so happy".

"It's an absolutely extraordinary thing," she said in a video shared on Instagram.

"I'm sure tomorrow when I look back on it I won't believe that we achieved it because there were some moments where I just didn't think we were going to make it."

In another clip, Holden admitted there were points of the climb where she was "terrified".
