Speaking to OK! Magazine last year, Amanda said: “I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50!

“I try not to think about age anymore when I’m dressing.

“My children don’t bat an eyelid at what I wear and love borrowing my clothes.”

Meanwhile, she added in an interview with The Sun: “My [bleep] seem to become the show’s biggest talking point every year.

“We’ve had plenty of complaints apparently, but none from home, let me tell you.”

Speaking about one particular dress, Amanda joked: “I was thinking that it’s a family show and people talk about my boobs every year, so I thought I would wear a nipple cover. I’d now happily put it on eBay.”
