"Surely there are more terrible and important things to write about...don't you agree? I'm baffled why it's still going on," she said, before adding the hashtag "#sexist".

Amanda's look at the weekend was one of our favourites on BGT so far. The TV star wowed viewers in the most gorgeous gown, which featured a sweeping sheer asymmetric neckline and sleeve, a beautiful lace bodice and a daring hip-high leg split.

Following her stunning performance, the mother-of-two took to her Instagram to reveal just how nervous she had been.

"A performance for my girls! Hope you enjoyed it on @bgt I've never felt so nervous. It meant so much to me singing LIVE in front of @antanddec & judges and crew I've worked with for over 15 years it was honestly terrifying -I didn't want to mess up in front of them. YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT AND BEAUTIFUL COMMENTS ARE OVERWHELMING. Not While I'm Around from my new album Songs From My Heart! #BGT #BritainsGotTalent," she wrote alongside a brief clip of her singing on stage.
