Amanda Holden admits crush on 'naughty boy' Simon Cowell
1 MAY 2009
Blonde TV beauty Amanda Holden has always denied fancying Simon Cowell, likening him and fellow Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan to "two naughty boys". The former Wild At Heart actress comes clean, however, on this weekend's show, making the shock revelation that she has got a thing for the music mogul.
"I have got a crush on him," admits the star, who wed record producer Chris Hughes at Christmas. "It's a bizarre thing. I recently read that Cheryl Cole never thought that she would (fancy him) and she did."
She explains: "He has this charisma and charm which you can't fight. And if you want to be cross with him, you can't."
Amanda's other half needn't be worried, though. The 38-year-old TV personality insists her husband is the true love of her life. "He's tall and gorgeous. There's no competition," she says.
She says even Simon treats her differently now she's a married woman. "I think he feels he can't flirt with me any more. He's kind of a bit more respectful," she reveals. "But I'm naturally flirtatious and it's part of our chemistry."
