It was clearly a happy birthday for Amanda Holden as she celebrated turning 39 this week.
The pretty blonde emerged from her London party with her hands full of presents and birthday cake.
Dressed in a stylish patterned coat with a leather belt showing off her svelte figure, Amanda enjoyed a special dinner with friends at the Ivy.
The party was apparently a surprise organised by the star's celebrity friends including former Holby City actress Angela Griffin.
It was a well-deserved break for Amanda, who is currently touring the country with Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan in search of Britain's finest talent.
