AMANDA Holden has revealed the biggest secret to her extremely youthful appearance and says her friends think she's pulling a Benjamin Button and ageing backward.
The 50-year-old presenter credited good genetics and a healthy lifestyle to her youthful looks but admits she doesn't deny herself a treat every now and then.
Speaking to The Mirror, Amanda explained: "We’ve got big cheeks in our family and good jawlines. So I think as long as that’s all staying like that, I don’t mind.
"I don’t think I look 50 but I don’t think I look 30. I have been called Mandy Button in the past, which is such a flattering thing!"
The TV star said she makes sure to take care of her health with plenty of exercise and follows a vegetarian diet.
But that doesn't mean she's not partial to a drink or two, as well as a cheeky doughnut.
"I do look after myself, I run, I do yoga, I’m a vegetarian," she explained. "But I do love a drink. I don’t deny myself anything. After lockdown, I just think, ‘Don’t deny yourself now, just enjoy life’. If you want a glass of wine or a doughnut, have one."
The Heart Radio presenter continued: "I don’t think I look 50 but I don’t think I look 30. I have been called Mandy Button in the past, which is such a flattering thing."
Amanda, who is mum to Alex, 15, and Hollie Rose, nine, added that she feels more fabulous than ever after turning 50.
"I think I had more of a wobble when I turned 30. I got divorced and I was like ‘S***, I’m 30. I’m supposed to be having children and stuff at this point’," she said.
"But at 50 I just went, ‘Yeah, I’m 50, I feel fabulous and I just don’t care’."
It comes after Amanda was left red-faced on Heart Radio after accidentally revealing she has sex in the shower with husband Chris.
The naughty revelation just slipped out as Amanda and her Heart Radio co-host Jamie Theakston discussed Brits' preference for which way they face in the shower.
Amanda said: "When I first get in, I might go, 'oh yes here it comes', but then I think I turn around…"
Jamie clarified: "So, you’re facing towards the shower to begin with?"
Amanda then responded: "But only for sex…like…"
Jamie laughed: "That’s another discussion for another day!"
Desperately back-peddling, Amanda said: "For seconds! I said seconds! [laughs]"
Gently ribbing her, Jamie joked: "What you do in the shower is your own business, I just want to know whether you’re facing the shower or you’re facing the… or whether you’re…[laughs]."
