Amanda Holden, 50, reveals top secret to her youthful looks and says friends think she 'ages in reverse'

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]."
