Amanda Holden has never been "frightened" of Simon Cowell and won't let him influence her opinion on 'Britain's Got Talent'

Amanda Holden has never been "frightened" of Simon Cowell.

The 42-year-old actress is always happy to express her own opinions on the judging panel of 'Britain's Got Talent' and insists she never lets her friend and fellow panelist influence her decisions.

She said: "I've never been frightened of Simon and now I really, really don't care what he thinks. He'll say things like, 'Darling, do you really like that?' and I say, ' I do,' and put them through."

Amanda - who has children Lexi, six, and Hollie, 14 months, with husband Chris Hughes - is also joined on the panel by Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, who has struck up a 'bromance' with Simon since joining the show, and the star jokes she has to keep the pair in line during their humorous banter.

She added in an interview with HELLO! magazine: "[Their relationship has] gone to a whole new level. I just threaten Simon with time out on the naughty step.

"It's just like having toddlers, or seven year olds as my daughter Lexi is now."
