Eamonn Holmes, 60, and his wife Ruth Langsford, 60, were joined on Friday’s edition of This Morning by Amanda Holden, 49, to talk about her life in lockdown. With the Britain’s Got Talent judge speaking via video call from her home, she was happy to catch-up with her fellow ITV colleagues. However, she was left a bit speechless when the host admitted what he really thought of her career news, given she has just released a new charity single.

Amanda has paid tribute to NHS workers on the front line combating coronavirus by recording a rendition of Julie Garland’s Over The Rainbow.
As well as having personal reasons for thanking health workers for saving her life many years ago, she wanted to praise their efforts during the current health crisis.
The theatre star is known for showcasing her vocals on the stage, but this is the first time she has ever released a single.
It seems Eamonn had never heard his colleagues vocals before and during his interview with her on Friday, he didn’t hold back with his verdict.

“Now, the song is also brilliant, my lovely friend,” the This Morning star began, adding: “But I would say to you, a very brave thing when you associate that song with Judy Garland, with Eva Cassidy.”
Amanda sat waited with bated breath to hear what Eamonn was going to say, with the presenter telling her: “I have heard it and I have to say, and I don’t mean this to be offensive to you, I was amazed.
“I was so surprised,” he continued as the singer let out a laugh having got her friends opinion on her new career move.
Commending her talents, the host said: “You have a beautiful voice.”
