Britain’s Got Talent star Amanda Holden was among the famous faces heading to Wimbledon after striking a cheeky pose with her Heart Radio co-star Ashley Roberts. TV judge Amanda, 51, and Pussycat Doll Ashley, 40, prepared for the first day of the tournament in their tennis whites.
As the ladies slighly hitched up their skirts to recreate the famous eighties Athena poster Tennis Girl, Amanda captioned their version: “Itchy bum #Wimbledon day 1.” The glam duo, who are known for their playful dress-ups, had fun as they celebrated ‘Wimblebum.’
Putting on a peachy display the pair turned away from the camera as they posed in an indoor tennis court setup Fan yabberdabberdoo said: “Iconic! Love this! Athena inspired from 80s.” donegalboy_55 exclaimed: “Cheeky!”
Heading to the championships with her look-alike daughter Lexi, Amanda rocked pristine white again in shirt-dress and heels. And she paired the dazzling look with a bright green bag resembling a tennis ball.
And model Lexi looked the part in a green power suit. The teen wore her smart suit with a white cropped top and boots and a pair of yellow-tinted shades.
Amanda recently returned to the UK after filming new show The Italian Job, a new series for BBC One, with her pal Alan Carr in Sicily. The pair have joined forces to renovate a crumbling property in Italy for an escapist new eight-part series.
Armed with a shared passion for travel and interior design, the show will see Amanda and Alan immersing themselves in the Sicilian way of life as they transform a depilated house into a luxury holiday home. They will their hand at everything – from plumbing to painting and plastering – and drafting in local tradespeople to show them the ropes and help keep the project on track.
Amanda said: “Alan and I came up with the idea for this show together and approached the BBC as we knew it was the perfect home. We are both very passionate about interior design and we’ll be very hands on, injecting some much needed life into an area of Sicily that’s in need of some Holden & Carr magic.
“Although we’re on the same page most of the time, I’m more practical and organised than Alan. However he’s up for some shameless bargaining so that will help us keep on budget!”
