Amanda Holden’s Lovely Lights Switch On

Amanda Holden took a break from rehearsals of Shrek The Musical and looked more gorgeous than gargoyle as she turned on Christmas Lights in London. 

The Britain’s Got Talent judge revealed to us that the cast have officially started learning their lines. Earlier this month they assembled for the first time at The Haymarket Hotel near The Drury Royal theatre where the musical will open in Spring 2011. 

Now they have been given their parts it’s practising time but it’s  not just speeches they have to learn as poor Mandy must sing and dance too. 

“I had to go to Pineapple dance studios this week for a session with the composer Janine Tesori,” the actress exclusively revealed. “She seemed happy with my progress so all my practising must be paying off. Phew!” 

And phew was the word of the day for Amanda as earlier that day she had to have lunch in London with someone that ‘won her’ as a raffle prize. 

How brave! Although Very understands she did make her husband Chris Hughes wait at a nearby table all lunch to check that the winner was sane. 

The third relief of the day for the frazzled star was the fact that the lights were turned on at all as there were technical difficulties with the venue arrangements in London’s Belgravia. 

As the actress was standing on the stage giving a countdown she couldn’t push a physical button so she was trusting the lights would magically turn on when she got down from ten to one. 

Amanda, who looked like Little Red Hiding Hood’s sexy older sister, confessed two tips for Winter dressing – be warm and be colourful. 


You can do exactly that with wedge boots very similar to the TV presenters – the Love Label peep toe wedge boots



Want a bright coat like Amandas? Try the Love Label Frilled Double Breasted Coat 

 Or the South Matador Coat   


The colour really cheers you up on a dull Winter day.
