Amanda Holden is getting into the Christmas spirit in all the right ways, with the 49-year-old soaking up the holiday season in her hot tub in a seriously enviable Instagram post.

The mum of two is renowned for living life to her full fashion potential, regularly sharing snaps of her completing everyday tasks clad in anything from a barely-there bikini to a ballgown.

Now the radio presenter and Britain’s Got Talent judge is proving that a frosty Christmas calls for a cranking up of the heat, with the celebrity enjoying a dip in her hot tub overlooked by a towering Christmas tree, despite the UK’s chilly November weather.

Rocking a bright red, one-piece swimming costume, the judge looked every inch the Christmas lover with a glass of red in hand and her typically impeccable hair and makeup.


Sharing the photo to Instagram, Amanda let the festive scene do the talking, simply hashtagging ‘Hottubtime’ and ‘HomeForChristmas’.

Of course, Amanda’s dedicated followers were quick to share their appreciation for the seasonal shot.

“Cheers,” a fellow reveller wrote.

“Now that looks stunning,” another gushed.

“Wine & hot tub & a beautiful lady = a perfect photo enjoy x,” another wrote.

Amanda has been getting as Chistmassy as she possibly can this year, decking out the IHeartRadio station in Christmas decorations as early as November 21.

She has been working overtime to keep fans spirits bright this year as the devastating coronavirus pandemic gripped Britain, the nation currently in a strict second lockdown after cases spiked.

Recently, however, Holden was forced to contend with the naysayers when her stunning plunging gown on the Britain’s Got Talent finale sparked official complaints from viewers.

The 49-year-old singer and actor’s sparkling frock featured a thigh-high split and a show-stopping plunging neckline that many fans at home thought put a little too much of her assets on display.

Amanda tackled the ‘nip slip’ backlash in a fiery Instagram Story post which included screenshots of several outraged viewers’ comments.

“Mmmm really?! Who has nipples this close to their cleavage?!” she quipped in the caption.

“FYI. A boned corset dented the girls all night,” she added.

To hammer home her point, she included two fried egg emojis.
