Amanda Holden has revealed her fellow 'Britain's Got Talent' judge Simon Cowell has been "amazingly complimentary" of her looks this year on the show

Simon Cowell has been "amazingly complimentary" of Amanda Holden's looks.

The 43-year-old star - who serves on the 'Britain's Got Talent' judging panel with Simon - has received more than a few comments about her glowing appearance on the show this year and finds it extremely flattering as her colleague sees her "right up close".

She explained: "He's been amazingly complimentary to me this year.

"I know there have been comments on the sly from Simon, too, about how I look, so of course that's the biggest compliment of all to me because I'm sitting next to someone who sees me right up close. I can't get away with anything!"

Amanda admits she has often changed her hairstyle or make-up depending on Simon's reaction, although he would never be as forward as to tell her he didn't like her appearance.

She added: "He's never rude, but does this thing where he'll just kind of stare and his eyes will widen.

"I remember one time I came on with this particularly Eighties-style hair and he just kind of honed in on it with this look on his face. I thought, 'Quick, hairbrush!' "

Meanwhile, Amanda insists she isn't in competition with fellow judge Alesha Dixon, 35, and is tired of people trying to stoke female rivalry between them.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "One of the biggest annoyances I've had was when Alesha joined the show and I got hundreds of questions saying, 'How do you feel about working with someone eight years younger than you?' I thought, 'I don't give a toss.'

"Perhaps if it had been someone similar to me, then possibly it might have become a sticky situation, but Alesha and I couldn't be more different, physically and in our style."
