Amanda Holden has broken her silence on Andrew Tate’s criticism of her racy snaps and revealed that despite temptation, she refused to retaliate. 

In July, the Heart FM presenter, 52, tweeted a racy image of herself enjoying a poolside shower in a sexy black bikini, igniting a vile response from the former Big Brother contestant, dubbed ‘the king of toxic masculinity’.

Replying to Amanda’s tweet featuring her snap, Tate, 36, who is currently under house arrest in Bucharest over sex trafficking charges wrote: ‘You are a wife and a mother and you’re far past a teenager. There is no need for this post.’

In an interview with The Telegraph, the TV and radio star, who is mother to Lexi, 17, and Hollie, 11, with husband Chris Hughes, said: ‘Honestly, I had another shot of me in a bikini with just a close-up of my bum…

‘I was tempted to post with the caption: “Kiss my 52-year-old a**e,”’ But you just know something like that’s going to go on and on – in the end, why give him the oxygen?’

Elsewhere in the interview, Amanda has insisted she can’t see herself covering up ‘anytime soon’ after she has receiving criticism for her racy outfits in the past.

The stunner insisted she dresses for herself and no one else and doesn’t see herself going for a more modest look yet.

Amanda previously received a whopping 235 Ofcom complaints during the 2020 series of the UK talent show by wearing a deeply plunging gown.

Asked if she will cover up Amanda said: ‘Absolutely not! I will always listen to myself first, because I dress for me – nobody else.

‘So if you do one day see me dressed in a Victorian bathing suit, it’s because everything has dropped to the floor and I’ve decided, today is the day I’m going to start covering up.’

She added: ‘Honestly, I can’t see that happening any time soon, darling.’

Amanda laughed off his criticism however, saying she has reached an age where she no longer worries what other people think of her. 

The presenter told how she feels women are still held to a different standard than men, citing the age old prejudice that if a woman sleeps with a lot of men, ‘she’s a sl*t’ while if a man does the same he is a ‘playboy’.

At the start of this year’s BGT series, Amanda insisted she doesn’t want any Ofcom complaints over her racy outfits on the ITV talent show.

Dismissing any previous criticism, Amanda previously told MailOnline those who take issue with her sartorial choices have ‘too much time on their hands’.

Bruno Tonioli, 67, joined the judging panel this year and according to Amanda, has no problem showing off his dancer’s physique.

She joked: ‘This is the problem, everyone talks about my t**s and his are out all the time. No Ofcom complaints about me this year please!’

Bruno also defended his co-star, saying: ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it! I don’t understand this complaining. She’s a beautiful woman.’

Amanda sparked 235 Ofcom complaints during the 2020 series when she arrived on stage in a plunging navy gown some thought was inappropriate for a family show.

Another revealing outfit the star donned became one of the most complained about TV moments of 2017, with 663 viewers contacting the regulator over it.

The presenter wore the controversial £11,250 dress by Julien Macdonald, after admitting days earlier that she was seeking complaints once again, saying: ‘Will people be complaining to Ofcom? I hope so, I really do.’ 

Joking about how much attention her breasts and racy ensembles get, Amanda previously quipped that they need their own representation and will be going on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

She said: ‘I am seriously thinking my girls need separate representation to me, because they are known on their own. They don’t need me, they’re going to go off and do Piers Morgan’s Life Stories on their own next year!
