Holden joins This Morning team

Amanda Holden has admitted she suffered first day nerves in her new job presenting This Morning.

The Britain's Got Talent judge made her debut on the ITV daytime show today (September 22), covering Holly Willoughby's maternity leave, and said she had been worried about filling Holly's shoes.

She said at the start of the show: "I've got massive butterflies... I felt really wretchedly nervous yesterday and now I feel a little bit better."

Co-host Phillip Schofield read out tweets of encouragement for Amanda, including one from Holly, and she replied: "Thank you Holly, hope you've got your feet up at home!"

She added: "My heart is pounding, can you see it?" but Phillip joked: "You told me you've got three nipple covers on! It's absolutely fine because I have too."

Amanda made it through her first This Morning without any mishaps and said as it finished: " Yes, I'm alright now... Is it too early for gin?"
