Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden and her family spent the New Year in the Maldives, and on the first day of her holiday – New Year’s Day – Amanda tweeted, “Couldn’t wish for a better first day of 2014. Looking forward to this year.
“Who has a sore head out there?”
She posted pictures of the luxury resort she was staying in as well as pictures of herself and her daughters Hollie and Lexi on the sundrenched beaches.
Earlier this week, in a message to Amanda on Twitter, fellow judge Alesha Dixon remarked, “Can’t wait to see my wife’s white bits.”
Amanda replied, “There aren’t many #nudeyMama!”
However, as the Sunday Mirror points out, “Amanda Holden could have been JAILED for sunbathing naked in The Maldives…
“The country’s strict Islamic law forbids nudism – and tourists who flout the rules and bare all can find themselves thrown in jail.”
On the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website, holidaymakers are warned, “Dress is generally informal but you should be sensitive to local dress standards when visiting non-resort islands.
“Nudism and topless sunbathing are not allowed anywhere.”
But as ever, I would guess it’s one rule for the wealthy and one for the plebs, because I can’t imagine anyone in what’s sure to have been a very expensive resort telling Amanda to cover up!
However, earlier this week, Amanda revealed she’s now back at home as she tweeted, “Home sweet wet rainy home! After Amaze Maldives!
“Looking forward to comparing white bits #BGT @AleshaOfficial @davidwalliams @SimonCowell”
BGT is back on our screens later this year, but in the meantime, the show’s official website is offering a whopping cash prize to ‘Star Scouts’.
Here’s what the site has to say…
