With all the royal goings-on this weekend, it's possible you might have missed Amanda Holden's incredible patriotic gown.

Among the many celebrity tributes to Her Majesty, the presenter, 51, chose to get in the spirit by slipping on a Union Jack-inspired dress.

In a post on Instagram, the mother-of-two could be seen posing in the striking look in various iconic spots around London.

Captioning the images – which featured Big Ben and Piccadilly Circus in the background – she wrote: "Happy Platinum Jubilee.

Holden's red, white and blue dress comprised of a voluminous skirt and train that was covered in a design referencing elements of the UK flag.

Her post went down well with fans who left more than 32,000 'likes', with many of her famous friends leaving comments.

Katie Piper called the look "amazing" while Vanessa Feltz wrote "lovely" and Dame Kelly Holmes added "love".

The Britain's Got Talent judge – who recently wowed with her glittering gown for the first live show of the new series – also shared a video showing the photoshoot taking place around the capital.

It comes after another star, Geri Horner, was "mocked" over her intense message to the monarch, who is marking 70 years on the throne.

The former Spice Girl was one of the famous faces – including Julie Andrews and Michelle Obama – offered the opportunity to record a few words to be shown at last night's Platinum Party at the Palace.

She said: "Our Queen, kind... loving... strong... serving our country, the Commonwealth, uniting us all together.

"Always putting others before yourself, you're truly inspirational, inside and out, we thank you... we love you."

However, some viewers felt that her tribute was "super weird" and a bit "over the top".
