Amanda, 48, went to theatre school as a child before she focussed on acting as a career, landing roles in dramas including Wild At Heart and Kiss Me Kate.

Although she is able to sing, the BGT star rarely revealed her voice to fans.

But in December last year, Amanda recorded a version of Tightrope, from the hit musical movie The Greatest Showman, for her husband Chris Hughes.

After uploading it to social media, the song went viral and it immediately turned the heads of music executives at some of the world's biggest record labels, including Warner and Sony.
