Holden back to best in BGT advert

Amanda Holden shows she is back to her glamorous best just weeks after cheating death, as she films for the next series of Britain's Got Talent.

The talent judge is seen in a stunning blue ballgown in the new trailer for the show, in which she and her fellow panellists come together to complete a mission "for Queen and country".

The spoof promo will be screened for the first time during the Chelsea v Napoli UEFA Champions League game, ahead of the series returning on March 24.

Amanda has bounced back to screens after the traumatic birth of her second child Hollie, which left her in a critical condition for several days and needing an emergency blood transfusion.

In the new trailer, each of the judges is seen going about their supposed daily lives. Amanda is in her dazzling gown backstage at an old theatre, while show boss Simon Cowell is pictured in a high-rise office with a patriotic teapot.

Show newcomer Alesha Dixon is dancing at a Cuban bar, while the other fresh judge David Walliams roams a Dickensian street as he films on the set of a period drama.

They then receive a mystery call summoning them to a secret mission, prompting them to put on their smartest outfits to do their duty.

A show spokeswoman said the trailer was designed to "reflect a national mood of patriotism" ahead of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and Olympic celebrations.

The new series of BGT is to go up against BBC One's The Voice when they both start a week on Saturday.
