The bubbly actress worked as a showgirl at a Paris nightclub in Amanda Holden’s Fantasy Lives, which starts on ITV1 on Tuesday, January 26.
‘I must be the shortest woman in showgirl history,’ she laughs. ‘I was wearing costumes designed for a 6ft 2in girl. I’m 5ft 6in in heels!’
Amanda re-creates her worst nightmare – tottering down ‘a scary glass staircase’ on a pitch-black stage.
Ooh la la! Her new career as one of the Bluebell Girls seems to be sprouting wings.
She had to learn four routines in just over 10 days – but got plenty of pointers from the professional dancers.
Finally, she was ready to strut her stuff in front of an audience of 2,000.
Amanda also aimed to please as a TV cop’s stunt double in Hollywood.
She revved up the risk factor in a daredevil motorbike ride, but Simon Cowell was not impressed. He said ‘it’s not feminine!’ she laughs.
Dolly Parton fan Amanda made a personal dream come true by performing as a country music star in Nashville, Tennessee.
