Amanda Holden has put her £5million Surrey mansion on the market after giving the luxurious property a showbiz makeover.
Britain’s Got Talent judge, 51, is hoping to cash in on £1.5million after spending £3.5million on the five-bedroom house seven years ago.
The detached home has its own bar, a huge 30 x 27 foot living room, a stylish eat-in kitchen and a hot tub where Amanda posed for several bikini pics that she posted to her Instagram page.

A source said: “Amanda loves her family home and is really proud of the work she has done on it.
“She really participated in the redesign and enjoyed seeing her ideas come to life.
“It will be a sad day when she moves, but Amanda can find solace in the number of memories she created there.”
Amanda lives on the property with record producer husband Chris Hughes and their two daughters Lexi, 16, and Hollie, 10.
After buying the house in 2015, she and Chris described the mansion as their “forever home” and Amanda admitted she had been “persuading” her previous owner to sell it to them for years before they finally relented.
The couple also own a cottage in the Cotswolds which they renovated last year.
Heart FM DJ Amanda has opened up about her love for interior design
Amanda recently added a glamorous annexe to the Surrey property, which houses another bar and the hot tub, set on a large wooden deck, near a palm tree she planted in honor of Sir Captain Tom Moore.
The garden room also includes a wood-burning stove and comfy sofas, which Amanda says are perfect for “a sneaky afternoon disco nap.”
The Heart FM DJ renovated her bespoke Wilson Fink kitchen during lockdown, adding new cabinets and countertops and mirror tiles on the walls.
She also has three disco ball style lights, worth £850 each, hanging above her breakfast counter.
And her quirky taste is exemplified by pineapple-themed accessories scattered around the property, including dark navy pineapple-print wallpaper and a £125 Graham and Green pineapple lamp.
The huge open-plan living room also features eye-catching artwork, including a huge painting of a female astronaut and a £30,000 drawing by the Connor Brothers of a sultry woman in a silver dress smoking a cigarette under the caption ‘If you have’. I have nothing nice to say, come sit next to me.”
The mansion, which includes five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a study, is located behind two private gates that lead to the house on a private road.
The driveway is big enough for several cars, which comes in handy when Amanda is hosting her showbiz parties.
Speaking to House Beautiful about her home, Amanda revealed it’s important that her Surrey property doesn’t feel like a ‘show home’.
She said, “We have two little girls and we don’t want them to feel like they’re stepping on eggshells.”
Amanda’s passion for interior design has led to her landing a new TV show with pal Alan Carr, which has the couple renovating a property in Italy.
The series will be broadcast on the BBC after pitching the idea to the broadcaster.
Amanda admits she and husband Chris have so many clothes they’ve turned a room into a walk-in closet — inspired by their favorite TV show.
She says: “I’m a huge Sex And The City fan and Chris made a Mr. Big and turned an entire room into my closet.
‘But he didn’t end up leaving a pair of Manolos… but he arranged everything else. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of.
“There’s a remote controlled mirror that goes up and down and lights up – it’s amazing.”
The star took to Instagram and posted photos of her on dreamy summer evenings relaxing in her garden, which includes a hot tub on a large wooden deck, near a palm tree she planted in honor of Sir Captain Tom Moore Has

And the TV favorite also admits she’s a cleanliness freak, which means every downstairs service can be freshly mopped.
Speaking to The Mirror, she explained: “I’m proud of the house but I have two kids, two dogs and a cat so it’s a family home. Everything is washable and wipeable.
“It’s open enough for my little one to ride her bike around. “I don’t have carpets on the ground floor – and that’s gross – but I did an interview a while ago and my puppy pooped on the floor during the interview.
“But you don’t have to worry if you have wooden floors. Two words: wipe.’
Amanda, who designed a homeware line for shopping network QVC, is so passionate about interior design that she thinks it could eventually become a day job — if she ever loses her looks.
She added: “I want this to be a legacy. “When my face falls off and all the television work dries up, I actually want to be here.”
