BGT judge Amanda adores Posh

Amanda Holden feels connected to Victoria Beckham in a peculiar way.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge has only met Victoria, 40, a handful of times but thinks the former Spice Girl often gives people the wrong impression.

I love Victoria,’ says Amanda, 43.

I’ve met her a few times and she’s funny and sparky and, I think, much misunderstood sometimes.

I feel this strange connection to her, even though I don’t really know her at all.’

Amanda – who has daughters Lexi, 8, and Hollie, 2, with husband Chris Hughes – also admires Victoria as a designer.

I’m thrilled that her fashion lines have been so successful because I’m sure there were a lot of people who would have loved to see her fall flat on her face,’ Amanda tells Hello!

Her dresses are incredible and the pieces I’ve had, I just know I’m going to wear forever or keep them for my girls.’
