The Britain's Got Talent judge reveals her secret talent

With just a month to go until she stars in Shrek: The Musical, Amanda Holden is using every spare minute to perfect her part as Princess Fiona.

And she’s leaving nothing to chance, revealing to Now today: ‘Yesterday I learned to fart on cue!’.

That’s right, the Britain’s Got Talent judge is taking her role seriously, and laughed as she boasted about her flatulant prowess when we met her at the launch of the Trimsole footwear range this morning.

Looking gorgeous in a black mini-dress and matching black Trimsoles, Amanda, 40, said: ‘I love the play and I love the part.

‘It’s all based on the first film so I’m not an ogre until the very end. I couldn’t dance all that time in a fat suit!

‘The play has so many rude jokes in it’s right up my street. It’s not a kids’ show, it’s a family show.

‘But I know Lexi [my daughter] will want to watch it every night.’

Shrek opens in May and we can’t wait, if only to see if Amanda really can parp right on time, every time!
