Amanda Holden is set to sing on Britain's Got Talent after signing a record deal.

Amanda, who has appeared in London's West End in musicals such as Thoroughly Modern Millie, revealed earlier this year she would be releasing an album.

She shared a picture of herself signing a contract with Virgin EMI Records.

Amanda wrote at the time: "Bloody thrilled to confirm I have signed an amazing record deal with @VIRGINEMI -It has been a lifetimes dream!!!!! Just cannot wait to get started ...."

Now Amanda has described the record as a "dream come true", saying it will be a "properly classy, lovely album."

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Amanda revealed she had already lined up a performance on Britain's Got Talent.

"I will be terrified but enjoy every second," she told the newspaper. "Going out there on my own to perform some-thing off my album is terrifying but exciting.

"I remember being thrilled for Alesha Dixon when she did it. She just embraced it and went for it. I will do exactly the same.

“When you’ve been sat judging other people, who have faced their fears and got on that stage, you need to follow in their footsteps.”

Amanda's deal follows a video of her singing The Greatest Showman song Tightrope notching up 1.5 million hits online.

The clip was posted to celebrate her tenth wedding anniversary with her husband and featured the couple's two daughters.

Amanda, Alesha Dixon, Simon Cowell and David Walliams will be back together soon for the new series Britain's Got Talent The Champions.

The special all stars competition starts this Saturday night, August 31 at 8PM on ITV.
