As well as padded shoulders and a plunging neckline, the beaded gown also featured an open back that the TV star showed off on Instagram. With her back to the camera as she climbed the steps, Amanda showed off the pretty embellished belt that nipped her in at the waist, as was the leg split and fringed detailing.

"Did you enjoy last nights @bgt?" Amanda asked fans, and they were quick to answer. Ruth Langsford was among the first to comment, writing: "Loved it Head Judge!!" while Melissa Odabash remarked: "Thought I recognised that dress you looked insane last night." A third added: "Wow!!! You look sensational!!" and another compared her to a Bond girl.

Styled by Karl Willett, the 49-year-old finished off her look with nude Gianvito Rossi heels and accessorised with jewellery from Susannah Lovis. Amanda's curly blonde hair was into a high ponytail with a few front sections framing her face – and with a statement dress like that, we can see why she wanted to keep every inch visible!
