What did Amanda Holden say about her affair?

BGT star Amanda embarked on an affair with Neil while they were both starring in BBC show Happy Birthday Shakespeare.

In 2013, Amanda opened up about the incident and blamed herself for it happening.

“I don’t believe women have affairs for no reason,” she told Good Housekeeping in 2013.

“Neil rightly or wrongly got loads of stick. I feel like it was my fault – I was the one who was married.

“I want to change the general perception of him, as he was very caring and very loving and very worried about me because I lost so much weight. He used to cook for me and look after me and babysit the dogs.”

After Amanda and Les broke up, they both eventually went on to find love elsewhere.

Amanda married record producer Chris Hughes and the pair have two daughters together; Lexie, 15, and Hollie, nine.

Meanwhile, Les married Claire Nicholson and they also have to children together; Eleanor, 13, and 10-year-old Thomas.
