Lockdown is proving to be tough on many relationships, but for Amanda Holden, it’s only made her marriage spicier.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge has revealed lockdown has improved her sex life with Chris Hughes, and more power to her.
The 49-year-old is isolating in her grand Surrey home with husband of 12 years Chris and their two daughters Alexa, 14, and Hollie, eight, and is rather enjoying her time at home.
Speaking to The Sun, Amanda said: ‘This whole thing has been great for my marriage. I know people are talking about it causing spikes in baby-making and divorce rates, but for us it has been brilliant.
‘I’m too old for more babies but our relationship is stronger than ever. It’s all about the lockdown loving.’
Amanda added that they were enjoying all the extra time together now that pretty much all of their plans have been cancelled, before praising her husband as a ‘stand up comedian’.Amanda and Chris have been married since 2008 (Picture: David M. Benett/Getty Images)
The former Cutting It star said: ‘Even in the darkest of hours, we will find something to laugh about and smile about.’
While Amanda is spending quite a bit of time at home – and in bed with her boo, it seems – that doesn’t mean her schedule has been wiped completely.
The star has been heading into the deserted Leicester Square in London to front her Heart breakfast show during the week, and this morning, she dropped her first ever single in honour of the NHS.
She explained: ‘Life has taken a really funny turn, but one thing that I think has become really clear is that we are all in this together.Amanda has dropped her first single in honour of the NHS (Credits: PA)
‘The NHS mean a lot to me because as I’m sure you’ve read over the years, they’ve saved my life.
‘They’ve saved my sister’s life, after she was in a car accident. ‘And, of course, our son Theo was born sleeping at an NHS hospital where all the stuff were utterly extraordinary and treated us with so much empathy and love. So, I feel like I owe them so much.
