Amanda Holden annoyed as she insists she’s a professional singer on BBC show
Amanda Holden was left annoyed on Saturday night as a contestant on BBC's I Can See Your Voice appeared to insult her singing skills.
The 50-year-old Britain’s Got Talent judge was left outraged when one contestant made the cheeky comment as they debated over who was a good and bad singer on the lip-syncing game show.
"If you want to be a professional singer…" he began.
But a furious Amanda jumped in to say: "I AM a professional singer!"
Comedian and fellow panelist Jimmy Carr jumped to Amanda’s defence, interjecting with: "I’ll stop you there, she had a number one album last year.
"I’m just mentioning that because I don’t want her to have to mention it again!" he added cheekily.
Amanda responded: "Thank you, Jimmy!"
Viewers on Twitter immediately flocked to the social media site to post about the "cringe" interaction, with one writing: "This guy on #ICanSeeYourVoice going to Amanda Holden ‘If you want to be a professional singer’!"
Another added: "Amanda is a professional singer!"
Amanda’s album Songs From My Heart soared to the top spot in the charts in October 2020, with proceeds going to NHS charities.
It included covers of songs including Over the Rainbow, I Dreamed a Dream and a duet of I Know Him So Well with Sheridan Smith.
Amanda admitted she was worried she’d left it too late in life to become a singer.
She told Official Charts: "It was always a big childhood dream of mine to be a singer in the charts.
"To be honest I thought the opportunity had passed me by.
"This career moment in my life has honestly been the most thrilling so far. Made all the more special because my husband and children were such a huge part of it too," she explained.
The chart-topping album included a heartbreaking track from the musical Ghost called With You, in tribute to her stillborn son Theo.
Amanda tragically lost her son while she was seven months pregnant back in 2011.
Speaking about her album’s release, she told The Mirror: "The last lines of this song are ‘You took my life with you, Took my world with you’ and so this is for Theo, our baby who was born sleeping and for Chris who stayed strong when I fell apart."
She said the track was Simon Cowell’s favourite song, adding to Hello Magazine: "It’s very emotional to sing this song but I think you get chosen for experiences like that only if you are strong enough to deal with it. And it changes you."

She posted a photo of two tiny footprints on a piece of white card, writing alongside it: "Theo… our gorgeous boy. You would have been 10 years old today… not a day goes by without thinking of you."
