The Britain's Got Talent judge swapped the marquise diamond and blingy pavé band for a colourful alternative in order to promote donations to Ukraine amid the Russian invasion. In a photo posted on her Instagram Stories, Amanda posed with her left hand on her arm which gave fans a good view of her yellow sapphire, flanked by classic blue sapphires on a platinum band – a sweet nod to the colours of the Ukrainian flag.

Amanda re-wore her Elie Saab wedding dress during the coronavirus lockdown

The couple – who now share two daughters Lexi and Hollie – said 'I do' at St Margaret’s Church in Somerset before they hosted their reception at the exclusive Babington House.

The bride looked glowing in an Elie Saab creation and the couple tied the knot in front of a star-studded guest list, including Piers Morgan, Mick Hucknall and David Coulthard. Amanda was determined for it to be a literal 'white wedding', so she even hired a snow machine to have picture-perfect flakes falling on the day.
