Amanda Holden believes she can never be sacked from 'Britain's Got Talent' because of public sympathy over her traumatic labour
Amanda Holden believes she can't be sacked from 'Britain's Got Talent' because of her recent traumatic childbirth.
The 41-year-old star was left fighting for her life in January when her heart stopped beating for 40 seconds after a massive haemorrhage during the birth of her second child Hollie, and Amanda thinks she could never be replaced on the ITV1 show because she has won the public's sympathy.
She told S magazine: "After what's happened little things just can't really bother me. Also, I'm really hard to sack after what has happened to me. Come and try."
Amanda also joked that she limits her contact with show supremo Simon Cowell to when they are working together so he remembers her as always "fabulous".
She explained: "Away from 'Britain's Got Talent', we don't really contact each other. We text each other the odd time, but I basically stay off his radar. That way when he seems me he remembers how fabulous I am. I like to give him little doses of Mandy, too much Mandy is a fatal thing."
Alesha Dixon and David Walliams have joined the judging panel this year and Amanda is thrilled that the 'Little Britain' funnyman pokes fun at show boss Simon.
She added: "This year thanks to David Walliams, Simon was literally pinching his nose when he laughed, He will hate me for saying this but he snorts when he laughs for real and he has to pinch his nose to stop it.
"And you know when you have to laugh because someone is taking the mickey out of you? That was David every time, He's amazing. Simon's got a brilliant sense of humour but I would never take the risk."
