The Britain's Got Talent judge, 51, transformed into one of the eponymous heroes from the French adventure novel The Three Musketeers, written by Alexandre Dumas. Amanda wowed her fans in a cheeky video, which saw her "swashbuckling and slaying" down the corridor of the Heart Breakfast studios ahead of presenting her radio show with Jamie Theakston. Arriving in a slinky red dress and matching heels, Amanda seamlessly transitioned into her costume – and it was epic.

The faux corseted dress also featured mesh epaulettes for added authenticity, and Amanda finished off the look with a wide-brimmed hat. But it was her boots that really caught our eyes!

The knee-high leather shoes certainly made a statement, and we bet Amanda will be wearing them without her costume, too.

The BGT judge got into the spirit of things

Amanda opted for a heavy smokey eye complete with dark eyeliner and kept her lipstick light and matte. She wore her blonde hair in a perfectly sleek blow-dry.
