Here’s what we learnt about Amanda’s amazing fashion rules…
‘I don’t give a damn’
Having been in the industry for so long, Amanda is at the eye or scrutiny when it comes to fashion and style – especially after her Britain’s Got Talent received hundreds of Ofcom complaints.

However, it appears the star does not let this get to her too much, explaining: “I had to learn to develop the skin of a Rhino over the past 25 years really.
“I’m in an industry where scrutiny is key, it’s what everyone does.

“But if I’m honest, I don’t really give a damn. The people I am with and my loved ones are fantastic. So you just can’t care about strangers, and loads of it is positive. You can’t please everybody, that’s a lesson you learn.”
Change of attitude
While Amanda has become a fashion icon to many over the past few years, the star admits the sudden interest only came after a “change of attitude”.
Amanda explained: “To be honest, I suppose it’s happened in the past five or six years. Before that I don’t think anyone thought about me in that way.”

“I had a change of attitude, and team, and I just thought I wanted to embrace my 40s, let’s go for this. And that’s what we did.”
Taking husband’s opinion first
Like most people, Amanda goes to her friends and family for advice when it comes to outfits.
However, she admits that her husband is the first person she goes to, explaining: “I’m hugely influenced, every look I wear, everyone has had an opinion on it, within my circle.

“Normally, my husband is first and I’ll say ‘Does this look alright?’ and he’ll say ‘your legs look great!’ He’s really complimentary. He normally gets first approval.
“Everything is thought through, there are no mistakes any more – exclamation mark.”
