Amanda Holden now 'the UK’s highest paid female TV presenter'

She's overtaken Holly Willoughby

Amanda Holden, 48, has reportedly just become the UK's highest-earning UK female presenter, overtaking This Morning's Holly Willoughby in the process.

It's now estimated that Amanda earns over £5 million a year thanks to her work on such shows as Britain's Got Talent, and as the co-presenter on Heart's breakfast show.

It's been reported that she will earn roughly £1 million thanks to her position as one of the judges on Britain's Got Talent, which will undergo a bit of a format change this year.

This year's edition of the show, which starts on August 31st, will see former champions come back and compete against one another.

It's promising to be a rather big deal with the likes of Jai MacDowall, Stavros Flatley and Paul Potts all tipped to return to the programme.

Meanwhile, it's been reported that Amanda earns around £1.5 million with her work on Heart Radio as the co-presenter of their breakfast radio show.

She's also managed to secure herself a record deal with Virgin EMI which is said to be worth an impressive £1 million.

She’s as happy rubbing shoulders with superstars as she is in Cornwall with the family.

It was reported that there was a bit of a bidding war for Amand after a video of her singing went viral.

Warner, Sony and Universal were supposedly battling it out to get her signature, but it was Virgin who swooped in and managed to get the star to sign on the dotted line.

Amanda also earns a reported £1 million thanks to her work with Marks & Spencer and her QVC interiors range.

The TV presenter is also about to launch a new clothing line with Fenn Wright Manson which will reportedly add another £500,000 to her bank account.
