Amanda Holden has Christmas spreadsheets
Amanda Holden has confessed she begins planning Christmas "weeks in advance" and even puts together spreadsheets so nothing goes wrong
Amanda Holden plans Christmas "weeks in advance".
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge - who has children Lexi, eight, and Hollie, two, with husband Chris Hughes - admits she likes to take charge of celebrations in her home and wants everything to go so well, she creates extensive planning documents.
She said: "I need to be in charge in the kitchen. Cooking is my domain because, in all honesty, I don't trust anyone else to do it.
"I make spreadsheets and really plan weeks in advance. I need everything to run smoothly."
Despite her organisation, Amanda's plans nearly came undone last year after her house suffered a power cut.
She told Closer magazine: "It was awful! We had no power so we had to get the barbecue out just in case it didn't come back on. Can you imagine a turkey barbecue in December?
"Luckily we got the power back on but we were behind schedule. I needed a sweet sherry to calm me down after that, believe me."
