Holden: Cowell can be godfather!

Amanda Holden has joked that she's going to make her fellow Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell the godfather of her baby girl - so he can buy her expensive shoes.

The 40-year-old actress and presenter is eight months pregnant and joked that the media mogul's healthy bank balance might make him the perfect godfather for her little girl.

Speaking to Daybreak on ITV1, she said: "I might make Simon the godfather because he could set up a trust fund with stacks of money in it because it's a girl - so she'll need shoes."

BGT presenter Declan Donnelly said he would be up for the challenge if Amanda goes into labour on the talent show.

"We've done everything else on this show - we've had animals, we've had kids - so delivering a baby is just another day on Britain's Got Talent!" he said.

But Wild At Heart star Amanda - who already has a six-year-old daughter, Alexa - laughed: "Good lord, I'm not having anybody down that end on this show, thanks very much!"

Amanda is joining Simon, comedian David Walliams and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon on the BGT judging panel this year.
