Amanda Holden has said that she plans to quit her role as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent when she hits her ten year anniversary of being on the show.

The actress and presenter revealed her plans this week while filming auditions for the ninth series of the ITV talent search in London.  

“I would love to make it 10 and then call it a day,” she said. “Ten years is an amazing feat. I want a nice big clock when I leave and some holiday in the sunshine. And a retirement package!”

The series began in 2007 with Amanda, Simon and Piers Morgan. But in 2011, when the chat show host left after four series and Simon was busy promoting The X Factor USA,  Amanda was joined on the judging panel by Baywatch star David Hasselhoff and comedian Michael McIntyre. Later that year it was announced that Hasselhoff and McIntyre would not be returning. In 2012, Simon resumed his role on the panel as current co-judges Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, joined the show. 

The mum of two, who is currently presenting
This Morning, also revealed that she is to front a new TV show but refused to reveal any details about the project and only had this to say: 
“It’s going to be a great thing.”
