Amanda Holden has told father-to-be Simon Cowell that he should expect his child to be as "unruly" as him.
The Britain's Got Talent judge was among the television talent that turned out for the TVChoice Awards - where the ITV programme was crowned Best Talent Show.
Holden, 42, told reporters she had been quick to congratulate her boss after hearing he was expecting a baby with lover Lauren Silverman.
Asked what sort of father Cowell would make, Holden said: "I think he is going to be brilliant and I don't think he is going to be a disciplinarian.
"I think he will have an unruly, naughty boy - just like himself."
