"Can't believe it's 1984 again… move over Alexis Carrington," Amanda, 49, quipped in her caption.

Amanda previously revealed what her two daughters – Lexi, 14, and Hollie, eight – think of her sometimes risqué outfits. Speaking to Celia Walden in Stella magazine, she admitted her girls have more pressing issues.

"What really annoys them is that I'm naked at home," she shared. "Last night I went to say goodnight to Lexie wearing only my shower cap and she screamed, 'Mum! I'm on FaceTime! Why do you always have to be naked?'"

"It's so hard for girls now, and if Lexie ever starts a sentence with, 'Do you think I look f…', I cut her off with, 'Do not even say that word in my house.'"

Amanda also shared her thoughts on plastic surgery. "As a woman, I have always shared sneaky things I do in terms of creams or covering roots, but at the moment I'm in a position where I can be honest, because I haven't had surgery," she says.

"When I do – because I probably will – I don't know whether I will tell people I have. But I think women are allowed a bit of mystery, aren't they?"
