Amanda Holden stuns in a yellow dress as she returns to radio job after a week off

AMANDA Holden has returned to work in style in a chic Ted Baker dress.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, 50, celebrated the onset of spring and her return to her Heart radio gig after she breached lockdown rules to visit her parents in Cornwall.

Amanda strutted in the hot off the racks tie waist tea dress as she celebrated the onset of spring.

She posed in the £179 dress in front of a flowered wall which featured the Heart radio logo.

Amanda captioned the Instagram post: "#Spring is definitely in the air #littlemisssunshine#[email protected]_baker 🍋💛."


Her fans loved the colourful look calling it "excellent".

"Morning sunshine. Have a great day," wrote one fan.

Another added: "Most stunning."

And a third said: "You look splendid."

Her sunny strut comes a week after we exclusively revealed how she dodged a fine after being reported for allegedly breaching Covid rules to see her parents.

The Sun on Sunday told how her 430-mile round trip from London to Cornwall sparked fury among locals who accused her of en­dangering vulnerable residents.

Devon and Cornwall Police have warned visitors they face a fine.

But a source said yesterday: "Officers turned up at her parents’ this afternoon to ask about the visit.

"As they left they said this would be the end of the matter."

The star said she drove to near Bude after receiving a distressing family phone call on Friday afternoon, February 12.

She was seen getting out of a Mercedes at the home of her mum Judith, 71, and stepdad Leslie, 75.

It is thought she had not seen them for a year. She stayed overnight and left on Saturday, February 13.

A spokesman for the star said at the time she had travelled to the South West after receiving a distressing family phone call.

He said: "Amanda is aware that all families are going through difficulty during these turbulent times but received a distressing telephone call from her elderly father on Friday afternoon."

"On balance Amanda felt the round trip to Cornwall necessary to contain the matter at her family home. The very personal situation has now been aided and Amanda is back in London.

"Amanda did not act on a whim and has adhered to Covid rules every step of the way in all three lockdowns," he continued.

"Amanda is aware of the travel rules and is devastated she had to break them on this one occasion.

"Her parents are vaccinated and, with Amanda testing for Covid weekly, she felt she was not putting her parents at risk.

"She did not come in contact with any member of the public."
