Speaking with the Mirror, Amanda said that her mum has stepped up and defended her revealing dresses.

“She said, ‘Ooh, let them talk. You look better than girls half your age.’

“When she was 48 she wouldn’t have dared wear a mini skirt, because she’s of the era where you wouldn’t dare get your knees out if you were nearly 50.

“Whereas I look at Kylie and J-Lo and think, well if she’s still doing it, I’m still doing it.”

Amanda is preparing to jump out of an airplane with mum Judith and sister Debbie for charity.

The stunt will be broadcast live on her Heart radio show.

Amanda recently addressed the talk around her racy Britain’s Got Talent attire, insisting she likes to “take risks” with her outfits.

The star’s striking ensembles on the ITV programme have caught the eye of viewers and even drawn criticism from some fans.

However, the talent show judge shrugged off the Ofcom complaints as she explained her style choices.

She told MailOnline: “Of course I have fun on Britain’s Got Talent – it’s the perfect opportunity to take risks.

“Times have changed and I don’t feel anyone should feel pressure to dress for your age. It’s all about body positivity and feeling good.”
