As a body-confident woman in the public eye, Amanda Holden frequently opts for head-turning ensembles for her glamorous TV appearances.

But the 50-year-old has admitted that she's sometimes left a little too much on show, recalling a family lunch at which she accidentally exposed her cleavage for a matter of minutes before she realised what had happened.

Recalling the embarrassing incident in an interview with the Daily Mail's You magazine, the star said: "It was at Piers's house in LA. It was my left breast."

Alluding to how her risque outfits have previously garnered a mixed reception, she jokingly added: "And there were no Ofcom complaints."

Holden and Morgan – who resigned from Good Morning Britain earlier this week after Ofcom received over 40,000 complaints about him – are old friends, and appeared together on the Britain's Got Talent judging panel.

In the same interview, the mother-of-two opened about how her family feels about her daring gowns on TV.

She said: "My mum loves it. She just laughs about it. So does my daughter.

"If I’m trying on outfits for shows I’ll say to Lexi: 'Is there too much side-boob?' or 'Is this too much?' and she’ll grin and say: 'Go for it, Mum.'

"I’ll ask [husband] Chris if I’m looking like mutton and he says: 'Mandy, you could never look like mutton.' It’s positive affirmation that we women need."

Last October, Morgan's journalist wife Celia Walden interviewed Holden for The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine, in which the Heart FM host opened up about how she is instilling body confidence in her teenage daughter Alexa.

The star explained that she has banned a common phrase from the family home in order to promote her 15-year-old growing up feeling comfortable in her own skin.

She said: “It's so hard for girls now, and if Lexi ever starts a sentence with, 'Do you think I look f...', I cut her off with, 'Do not even say that word in my house.'"

Earlier today, Holden marked Mother's Day on Instagram by sharing a picture with daughter Lexi and her nine-year-old sister Hollie.

Captioning the post, she wrote: "Happy Mother’s Day! So grateful for my two gorgeous girls who woke me up with a coffee and marmalade on toast this morning.

"Thinking of those of you who have lost a mum or the hope of being one and sending my love."

Famous friends, including Tess Daly, Sheridan Smith and Ashley Roberts, commented with love heart emojis.
