Amanda Holden has reportedly signed a new three-year deal to stay on Britain’s Got Talent.
Amanda, who has been a judge on the show since the very first episode, will apparently get paid £1 million a series.
It comes after Ant and Dec closed a supposed £40 million deal for ITV that will also see them stay as hosts of BGT, together with shows including I’m A Celebrity and Saturday Night Takeaway.
Amanda will join Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon back on the panel, with filming starting later this month.
A source claimed to The Sun newspaper: “The show wouldn’t be the same without Simon and Amanda.
“The judges’ chemistry plus her incredible outfits and down-to-earth humour have been a hit since the very start.”
It was recently claimed that Amanda would also be performing on this year’s live shows after signing a record deal to release an album.
“I will be terrified but enjoy every second,” she said last year. “Going out there on my own to perform some-thing off my album is terrifying but exciting.”
The new series of Britain’s Got Talent will launch on TV later in the Spring, typically starting in mid-April.
Auditions will film in January and February at the London Palladium and The Lowry in Manchester.
As always, there will be a live crowd at every venue acting as the show’s fifth judge to help the panel make their decisions and making sure the judges know when they disagree with their choices!
