Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, 50, looked stunning as she departed Kelly Hoppen’s CBE party in London. The bash was a star-studded event, with celebs like Christine and Frank Lampard, Alan Carr, and Phillip Schofield all on the guest list.

 

Amanda looked glamorous in her all-black ensemble as she left Langan’s Brasserie following Kelly’s investiture at Windsor Castle last night. 

Designer Kelly was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to the Government’s Great campaign, helping to promote British creativity, business and commerce.

Amanda celebrated the occasion in style in a diamond patterned semi-sheer top with a high neckline, complete with black shoulder pads and fluffy, feather-trimmed cuffs. 

The star paired the stylish top with black, velvet flares and pointed black high heels. 

She also wore her blow-dried blonde hair in a chic half-up, half-down do and completed the look with a black purse. 

The musical theatre actress was offered some assistance from security as she carefully made her way down the stairs in her stilettos. 

Also seen leaving the party hand-in-hand were Frank, 43, and his wife Christine, 42, who looked chic in an off-the-shoulder black jumpsuit. 

Meanwhile, This Morning’s Phillip Schofield had a busy night, splitting his time between ITV’s Palooza, which celebrates talent from the network, and Kelly’s shindig. 

The star attended the party with his estranged wife Steph and the pair were seen holding hands in a united display as they left. 

Dragons’ Den business mogul Duncan Bannatyne, 72, and his wife Nicola, 41, were also in attendance. 

Amanda, who was seen strutting confidently out of the party without her partner, is married to record producer Chris Hughes. 

The pair share two daughters: 11-year-old Alexa and five-year-old Hollie.

The star was previously married to comedian Les Dennis between 1995 and 2003.

 Amanda recently landed a role in Neighbours, playing the aunt of Jason Donovan’s daughter, Jemma, 21.

On the show, Jemma’s character Harlow will visit her family in Britain to uncover the mystery of her late mother, Prue, who was played by Denise Van Outen.

Amanda said of her new role: “If I’d told my 12/13 year-old self I would one day appear in Neighbours I’d have never believed it!

 

“To now have the opportunity to be a part of such an iconic Australian show is simply fabulous,” she added.

The star has also been rumoured to be making a possible return to This Morning after Eamonn Holmes announced his shock exit from the show. 

There has also been talk of his wife Ruth Langsford, who has a long history with the show, stepping down.

Amanda stepped in to host the ITV show back in 2015 when Holly Willoughby went on maternity leave, presenting alongside Schofield.

The last time Amanda was in the running to co-host beside Phillip was in 2018 when Holly filled in for Ant McPartlin on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, but the gig ended up going to The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes.
