Amanda Holden left friends and fans speechless on Saturday night as she performed her latest single, Not While I’m Around, in front of millions on Britain’s Got Talent.

Following her stunning performance, which saw the 49-year-old wear a gorgeous figure-hugging white gown, the mother-of-two took to her Instagram to reveal just how nervous she had been.

The star was inundated with comments from fans, and one in particular told her she looked “very nervous” to which Amanda replied: “I was absolutely bricking it. I’ve worked with the backstage crew, sound guys and producers for 15 years and I didn’t want to balls it up in front of them.”
