Britain's Got Talent 2012 auditions: Amanda Holden left red faced after pregnancy faux pas

Amanda Holden (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has revealed how she was left red faced after congratulating one female auditionee on her pregnancy, when she wasn't!

In an interview with the show's official website, Amanda explained how Simon Cowell had set her up before the hopeful came on stage.

She said: "Simon's always playing pranks on me but the most memorable one involved a contestant. Just before she came on stage, Simon whispered in my ear that she was pregnant.

"Naturally, I congratulated her and it turned out she wasn't and it was one of Simon's fibs. I was so embarrassed."

Amanda, who is a judge on the upcoming series alongside Simon, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, explained that this year's auditions were full of laughs.

The West End star continued: “Simon also loves to play word games during the auditions.

"This usually involves us having to get random words like 'Moray eel' or 'banana flan' into a sentence when giving our opinion of an act. It provides some rather awkward moments."

Britain's Got Talent 2012 hits screens on March 24.
