Most of us are spending the coronavirus lockdown in our comfiest – and most un-stylish – clothing. But not Amanda Holden.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 49, mixed things up on Monday night and donned a red carpet worthy evening dress to take out the bin.

Wearing a thigh-high split gown by British couture label Jennifer Clair and stilettos for the ‘outing’ in Richmond, Holden proceeded to put her black wheelie bin out.

Holden, who is currently social distancing with her family in her London home between hosting her Heart radio show, documented the high-fashion moment on her Instagram account.

A number of Holden’s celebrity friends reacted to the high-fashion moment.

Former The One Show host Matt Baker commented: “Bin feeling rubbish wheelie cheered me up X” while singer Pixie Lott responded with a heart emoji, a laughing crying emoji and a fire emoji.

Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse wrote: “I meannnnnnnnnn YESSSSSSS” followed by a series of fire emoijs.

The mother-of-two isn’t the only celebrity who has taken the opportunity to play dress-up during lockdown.

On the same evening, inspired by Holden, Alan Carr opted to take his bin out in a slinky, silver jumpsuit.
