Amanda Holden keeps asking Simon Cowell if they can work on a spin-off version of 'Britain's Got Talent' just for children
Amanda Holden wants a children's version of 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The blonde TV judge - who has four-year-old daughter Lexi with her husband Chris Hughes - insists she doesn't see a problem with kids competing on the main programme, but thinks the younger contestants are so popular they should have their own show.
She said: "This is a warm family show, that's the point of it.
"We deliberately have the live finals running through half-term because children love them - and they particularly love watching other children.
"I keep saying to Simon that we ought to have a spin-off called 'Little Britain's Got Talent'. "
Despite allegations that children are often coerced into taking part by pushy parents, Amanda believes all of the contestants choose to audition.
She added in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper: "I have a four-year-old daughter and if she doesn't want to do something, I can't make her."
The 39-year-old actress also admitted she loves judging 'Britain's Got Talent' more than any other show she works on.
She said: "'Britain's Got Talent' takes up the least amount of time in my working year but it's the most fun."
