Amanda Holden has made it clear that "no one" can replace her on 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The 51-year-old TV star - who has been on the panel of the ITV talent show since its inception in 2007 - replaced Simon Cowell as the show's head judge after the music mogul suffered a serious back injury in August 2021.

And as the contest returned at the weekend, Amanda - who is once again joined by Simon, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams on the panel - has made it clear that she is irreplaceable.

She told the Daily Star when asked who would cover for her: "No one. They can just go down to a three!"

Mentioning the pregnancy complications she had while expecting her daughter in 2012, she added: "Don’t forget, I came out of a coma to go back on to 'Britain’s Got Talent'. There’s no one who is taking my seat!"

The Heart Breakfast co-host admitted it's a major feat that none of the judges have fallen out or been replaced.

She said: "It’s pretty incredible achievement, especially in today’s TV climate – for the same group of people to work together on the same show for so long and not fall out or be replaced!"

The weekend saw Amanda become the first judge to use the golden buzzer this series on hopeful Loren Allred.

After being wowed by her rendition of 'Never Enough' from 'The Greatest Showman', Amanda gushed: "That was just unbelievable, it was brilliant.

"I am absolutely shaking I can't believe I've had this incredible opportunity to get you your moment to shine."

Loren actually provided the vocals for Jenny Lind in the film.
