‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Amanda Holden has wowed her fellow panellists with her very own hidden talent.

The 51-year-old TV star - who sits on the panel of the ITV talent show alongside Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Simon Cowell – revealed her secret skill of impressions after she mimicked Scottish TV host Lorraine Kelly.

Contestant Suzy Wilde, who is a comedienne and impressionist – who won The Edinburgh Festival with her impressions of Cheryl Cole, Sharon Osbourne, Kirstie Allsopp, Joanna Lumley and Gordon Ramsay – blew the judges away on the ITV talent show when she took to the stage to take on impressions of Queen Elizabeth, Janet Street-Porter and Gemma Collins.

Feeling inspired, former ‘Wild at Heart’ star Amanda showcased her own talent when she impersonated the ITV breakfast host.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper's Hot TV column: "It was pretty funny. The judges couldn’t stop laughing at her impersonation."

The mum-of-two - who shares 16-year-old Alexa and 10-year-old Hollie with husband Chris Hughes - also wasn’t afraid to poke fun when a busker auditioned in a dustbin. She joked his rendition of ‘Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life’ on a guitar was a “bit of rubbish.”

This is not the first time the ‘Cutting It’ actress has proved she is a comedy contender, as she surprised her Heart FM co-stars with a Margaret Thatcher impression in November 2020.

While talking to Jamie Theakston and Ashley Roberts about Netflix’s royal drama ‘The Crown’, Amanda said in the former conservative Prime Minister's voice: "I really like her [Gillian Anderson] as Margaret Thatcher."

To which former Pussycat Doll Ashley said: “Oh my god, that's so good!”

Amanda concluded: “I used to do that when I was eight - only with Gladys Pugh from 'Hi-De-Hi'.”
