So enjoying the first day of Royal Ascot with her girlfriends, Amanda Holden had every reason to be in high spirits.
As guests of showbiz supremo Simon Cowell, the ladies - including Jackie St Claire and Danielle Bux, who is alone while her football pundit husband Gary Lineker is on duty at the World Cup in South Africa – were being entertained in lavish style.
And Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda was in luck as she twice backed a winner.
Ahead in the style stakes as well, the vivacious blonde wowed the crowds in a striking vibrant turquoise headpiece adorned with five smaller hearts on curved wires.
It was clearly a favourite shade as the Queen was also in a cheery aqua combination - though her ensemble of a print dress teamed with black low-heeled court shoes and handbag was more in keeping with the Royal Enclosure.
Her daughter-in-law, Sophie Countess of Wessex gave fellow racegoers a giggle when one of her designer heels got caught in the parade ring turf.
The royal smiled gamely as she attempted to retrieve her shoe with the help of a gallant racegoer, who'd come to her aid.
Others at the races included England star Michael Owen, 31, TV explorer Bear Grylls, 36, and BBC newsreader Kate Silverton.
