Amanda Holden is never one to shy away from the truth, but her most recent bombshell may just be her most shocking yet.

Chatting away with her Heart Radio breakfast show co-host Jamie Theakston on Thursday 6 February, the Britain’s Got Talent judge revealed that she and fellow panellists David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell don’t actually make notes about certain performers during auditions.

Instead, they fill their notebooks in other ways - mostly by distracting themselves with doodles.

“No, we are not writing notes,” the 48-year-old laughed, before pointing out that flowers are most frequently her subject of choice.

“Simon draws very kind-of state-of-the-art speed cars. They’re quite long, that’s all I’ll say,” she added. “Alesha draws endless squares and triangles and draws round people’s names. David’s just quite angry on the end, just sort-of zig zags.

Walliams and Cowell sailed into Manchester in a Union Jack-themed watercraft on Wednesday - while BGT hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly opted for a sleek, black speedboat - to continue their search for the next act to showcase their talents at the Royal Variety Performance 2020.

Last year, Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery won the hearts of the nation and became the oldest ever winner when he beat out the likes of magician Ben Hart and mentalist Marc Spelmann in the final.

He has since gone on to release an album entitled Love Changes Everything, which is a nod to the Michael Ball showtune he performed - and dedicated to his late wife, Joan - during his very first audition.
