Amanda Holden has teased that her cleavage-flashing and language blunders on Britain’s Got Talent may not be as unintentional as they appear.

The star is a favourite on the ITV show, but has sparked a few complaints with the odd risqué outfit or by letting slip a swear word.

Up until now, it has appeared that Holden’s gaffes were purely accidental.

But the presenter, 49, has now hinted that may not be the case.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Even though I am really open and very much myself most of the time, it’s a fake circumstance when you’re sitting on a panel and judging.

“I’m very aware of myself and what I should say next. Sometimes I pretend I’m not and I’m outrageous, and I’m like, ‘Oh I had no idea I was going to say that’, or my boob pops out, ‘I had no idea that was going to happen!’”

Holden has been a judge on the show since it started in 2007, and currently shares the panel with Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

Her flesh-baring outfits have become a major talking point over the course of the series, but the star has previously said she doesn’t mind.

She told OK! magazine last year: “I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50!”

“I have fun on Britain’s Got Talent – it’s the perfect opportunity to take risks,” added the mother-of-two.

“Times have changed and I don’t feel anyone should feel pressure to dress for your age. It’s all about body positivity and feeling good.”
