The Britain’s Got Talent judges are no strangers to getting scrubbed up for the reality TV show. David Walliams regularly dons a smart suit for judging duties, whereas Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden opt for vibrant suits and skin-tight dresses.

But for the latest episode of the British TV favourite, Amanda Holden pulled out all the stops in a floor-length sequinned gown for the first of the live Britain’s Got Talent shows.

The actor and presenter, 51, looked every bit the TV star in the sparkling Rami Kadi couture gown, styled by Kyle Willet.

The shimmering silver gown featured a strapless bodice with an off-the-shoulder draping detail on one side, and an extreme thigh-high split to show off Holden’s toned legs and Tom Ford heeled sandals.

The mother-of-two also upped the ante in a stunning three stone bi-colour tourmaline ring by Ntinga, and diamond hooped earrings by Stephen Webster.

Her glam team certainly made sure her beauty look matched the high-octane couture dress. Her tanned skin was complemented with a golden smokey eye, and her glossy blonde hair was styled back in loose waves that cascaded down her back.

Holden posted the look to her Instagram, where friends and fans were quick to comment on the gorgeous look.

“Wowzers! Stunner!” wrote fellow presenter Lisa Snowdon, whilst Davina McCall added, “So pretty.”

Fellow Heart radio presenter Ashley Roberts simply commented with a series of fire emojis, whilst, ex-Strictly Come Dancing judge Oti Mabuse declared her a “queen”.

The presenter was joined by co-judge Alesha Dixon, who stunned in a metallic blue mini dress ensemble complete with a boned bustier that highlighted her toned figure.

All eyes were on the judging duo as they took to the stage for the live show which saw opera singer Maxwell Thorpe and ventriloquist Jamie Leahey sail through to the next round.
