With few opportunities to leave the house these days, Amanda Holden has ensured she’s making the most of the opportunities she’s getting to dress up.

In a post on Instagram shared with her 1.6 million fans, the TV star, 49, wowed in a black, sheer, sparkling gown.

Captioning the image – in which the mother-of-two poses in a lift – she wrote: “Going up!!!”

The midi-dress, which she paired with a sleek hairstyle and strappy, nude heels, is by the designer Temperley London.

Last month, Holden shared how she is instilling body confidence in her teenage daughter Alexa.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine, the Heart FM radio show host explained how she has banned a common phrase from the family home in order to promote her 14-year-old growing up feeling comfortable in her own skin.

She said: “It's so hard for girls now, and if Lexie ever starts a sentence with, 'Do you think I look f...', I cut her off with, 'Do not even say that word in my house.'"

In the interview, conducted by Piers Morgan’s journalist wife Celia Walden, she added that she eschews diet culture.
