Amanda Holden was tearful after reuniting with some of her famous friends for the first time since lockdown began back in March.

The radio host posted a picture of herself alongside actor pals Tamzin Outhwaite, Angela Griffin and Lisa Faulkner as the foursome went for a "socially distanced walk" on Thursday.

She captioned the snap: "Omg. I literally cried when I saw these #girls in the flesh for the first time since #lockdown -a socially distanced walk this morning.

“SOOO WONDERFUL to be with them..."

The 49-year-old has continued to work on her Heart Breakfast radio show during lockdown and was seen judging in the pre-recorded Britain's Got Talent auditions that aired back in spring.

However, the live finals of the programme were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic so the competition hasn't got past the initial audition stages.

Holden has teased that the show could be "leading the way for the future" because of "how people will watch the show live", but remained coy when it came to giving any further details.

“I’m not giving it away because I don’t want all the other shows to nick the idea!” she said while hosting the radio show.

Holden has also kept busy during the UK's lockdown by recording a song for charity.

Back in May, Holden released a cover of Somewhere Over the Rainbow with all proceeds from the track going to NHS Charities Together.

"I feel like I owe them so much. I feel like we all owe them a debt now, and of course, for the future, to come," she said at the time.
