Amanda Holden: ‘If I had to save one BGT judge…’

You may have probably wondered at some point in your life: “If I could save only ONE person on a stranded boat, who would it be?”

For Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, however, there’s someone she would definitely not like to save, and you can probably guess who it is. It’s Simon Cowell.

Asked which of her co-hosts she would save if she had one spot on a lifeboat, she told The Independent Magazine that Cowell would be dreadful – “because I’d have to look after him”.

David Walliams would be a better person to have on her boat as he would make a rather filling meal. “David would be good – he could be killed and I could end up living off him for about a year,” said Amanda. “He’s quite a bulky chap.”

In the end, girl power triumphed over cross-dressing comedians and acid-tongued music moguls and Amanda decided Alesha Dixon was the best choice, because “we’d turn into warriors and fish and throw spears. We’d be fine”.

That could make a TV show all of its own.
