    Intermittent rain wasn’t enough to prevent Amanda Holden letting her hair down while attending a wedding with her loved ones on Saturday afternoon.

    The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 46, raised a celebratory champagne flute after watching her close friend and former PA Michaela Drake exchange vows with her new husband in Canary Wharf.

    Given the occasion Amanda looked typically glamorous in a low-cut, floral embellished top and breezy pleated midi-skirt as she chatted with guests outside the east London venue.

    The TV personality was joined by husband Chris Hughes, 43, and their two children – daughters Alexa, 11, and five-year old Hollie.

    With both children taking prominent roles during the ceremony – Alexa served as bridesmaid while Hollie was the flower girl – Amanda appeared keen to ensure they looked their best.

    Standing alongside her husband, the star fussed over her youngest daughter, who looked adorable in a floral headpiece, flowing white dress and gold flats.

    Eager to document their appearance at the wedding, Amanda later paused to take a picture of Chris and Alexa, who wore a cream cape over her aqua green Bridesmaid’s dress.

    With rain periodically falling, the bride – who looked stunning in an elegant off-the-shoulder wedding dress – stayed dry beneath an umbrella as she chatted to guests. 

    Amanda previously admitted her hectic work schedule, coupled with the inevitable responsibilities that come with parenthood, leaves her little time to spend with Chris, who she married in 2008.

    She told Metro: ‘We’re both so busy. It’s about trying to carve out a bit of time for us – we have to explain to the girls that they must go to bed and let us have time alone, which is hard. My poor husband – he’s so far down the list.’ 

    Amanda also admitted that she frequently enjoys embarrassing her daughters, adding: ‘I do this thing at the moment when I drop Lexie off at school – I wind the window down and shout, “I love you!” and she turns round and glares at me.

    ‘Or I turn the music up really loud and wind the windows down so I’m like a rapper mum. It’s hilarious!’
