Britain's Got Talent 2012: Friends tell Amanda Holden to 'slow down'

Amanda Holden

Friends of Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden have been advising her to slow down, it has been claimed.

According to Star magazine, pals of the West End actress are worried that Amanda has rushed back to the show too fast, having given birth just a few weeks ago.

"Everyone who knows Amanda is telling her to slow down and not to rush back to what is a stressful job in the public eye," a source told the publication this week.

But Amanda, who has already defended her decision to return to the series, has showed no signs of changing her mind.

The insider insisted: "She is nothing if not headstrong and she won't be told! She says she feels fine and is raring to go."

Wild At Heart actress Amanda was back behind the judges desk at auditions in Scotland last weekend, saying that she was feeling "euphoric" to be back.

However some friends fear that Amanda feels under pressure to be back filming again.

"She knows TV is fickle and that, once you're off screen, you risk being forgetting," one source said. "Amanda's not silly - she needs BGT. It's her bread and butter nowadays."

Britain's Got Talent 2012 hits TV screens in April on ITV1.
