Britain's Got Talent judge thrilled
Producers have been impressed by the actress’s professionalism on Britain’s Got Talent.
Amanda, 38, will debut on the New York talkshow on 1 June and she is being groomed to take on the role full-time.
‘Network executives were blown away by Amanda‘s cut-glass British accent and warm personality,’ says a source.
‘But she has never presented any kind of hard news before so it is quite a challenge. She has a lot of live TV experience under her belt, and has presented before – but she is understandably pretty nervous.
‘It is widely being seen as a live screen test and Amanda is being lined up as a long-term host.’
Amanda is chuffed about the decision.
‘It is true,’ her spokesman tells the Daily Mirror. ‘Amanda is thrilled.’
