The BGT star paid tribute to the NHS fundraising hero

Amanda Holden has paid tribute to the late Captain Sir Tom Moore with a fitting outfit choice on Wednesday. The star arrived at the Heart Radio studios in a vintage style tea dress – standing to attention and saluting the camera as she honored the NHS fundraising hero, who sadly passed away aged 100 after contracting COVID-19.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, 49, opted for a pretty floral L.K. Bennett number in bright green, featuring a contrasting, black lace collar and button-down detailing.

Amanda looked like she had stepped straight out of the 1940s in her retro look, harking back to the war. She accessorised with simple black stilettos and styled her blonde locks in loose waves.

The dress was a style departure for Amanda, who usually favours slim-fitting trousers and midi skirts over knee-grazing dresses.

Paying her respects to Sir Tom the previous evening, Amanda wrote: "This absolute joy of a man. @captainsirtom .. A National Hero who brought us all together and shone so much light in such a dark time.

She also shared a separate message on her Instagram Stories, revealing she "had the privilege" of having Sir Tom on the Heart Breakfast show a few times and was deeply saddened to hear of his passing.

She teamed her favourite skinny jeans from Zara with a white polo neck layered underneath a baby blue cardigan, which perfectly matched her brand new Aspinal of London handbag.

Amanda shares her taste in accessories with the Duchess of Cambridge, who is big fan of the Aspinal Midi Mayfair bag and has it in several colours.
