Amanda Holden has reassured fans that she is doing well after she revealed that a stalker had been following her on Wednesday. The brave mum had been going about her business when she noticed a black car parked in her driveway, that proceeded to follow her throughout the day. Sharing a snap of the car, complete with licence plates, she wrote: "So... today. Random car - (male driver) in my driveway- then proceeds to follow lone female (me) going about her mundane Mummy duties. He's been reported. The police already aware of him. I’m naming and shaming ... I got someone else to pick up my children from school!"

Amanda opened up about being followed

Later, she updated her followers to let them know she was doing well, adding: "Thank you also much for your kind words of support and concern. Contrary to reports I am not too scared to leave the house!! I am in fact out and about this evening at an event with friends. I feel absolutely fine. I refuse to be bullied." Her fans were quick to send their support, with one writing: "Good! I’d never think you’d be too scared to go out. You were only thinking of your girls when it happened. You can’t let [expletive] win. Have a lovely evening." Another person added: "Scary for you my lovely, keep safe, and vigilant, which I’m sure you will be now, there are some real weird people out there, take care."
