Amanda Holden looks radiant as ever in a green satin halterneck dress and dark coat as she goes to work at Heart Radio

Amanda Holden got into the festive spirit a little early on Wednesday when she was pictured heading to work at Heart FM. 

The host, 49, looked incredible wearing a green satin halterneck dress from Silk Fred which she teamed with navy heels. 

Amanda kept out the cold by draping a coat over her shoulders and carried a navy clutch bag in hand as she battled the elements.

The star appeared in good spirits on her way to work as she added to her outfit with a pair of large sunglasses.

Amanda also wore a pair of shimmering stud earrings for the day while accentuating her natural beauty with a light pallet of makeup. 

The Britain’s Got Talent judge completed her look for the day by letting her blonde locks fall loose down her shoulders.

Amanda will be nowhere near the freezing Welsh countryside when I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! finally returns on Sunday evening.

And the ten campmates who will are no doubt thankful for it after her failed attempt at completing an insect themed trial on Wednesday morning.  

The star struggled to compose herself after radio co-host Jamie Theakston challenged her to put a hand inside a box of cockroaches for a specified period of time while strapped to a heart monitor. 

Amanda – who admitted she had no idea what type of insect was inside before taking part – looked more than a little nervous while placing her hand through a hole in the top.

With her heart-rate soaring to 82 beats-per-minute and her view into the box completely obscured, the presenter gingerly felt across the bottom – which was littered with small cockroaches – as Jamie counted down the seconds. 

But after failing to guess exactly what she had come into contact with, Amanda screamed in fright after one of the harmless insects squirmed beneath her fingers.

Sharing a video of the moment with Twitter followers later that day, she admitted: ‘yes. I’m a screamer.’ 

The challenge, conducted to see if the presenter could stay calm under such circumstances, was not unlike the Bushtucker Trials meted out to hapless I’m A Celeb contestants. 

The show will return with a 20th series on November 15th after relocating from the tropical Australian jungle to the rather less hospitable Welsh countryside – a consequence of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

And presenting duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have promised that the trials will be as ‘horrific’ as ever and teased that the set resembles Game Of Thrones due to its castle setting.

‘Don’t worry they’re not easing back on the trials – they’ll still be as horrific as they normally are!’ Ant promised in a chat ahead of Sunday’s launch show.

Dec added: ‘Some of the spiders here are bigger than ones in Australia – that’s all I’m saying!

‘We’re feeling incredibly excited. We’re very curious to see how the celebs get on in a cold environment rather than a hot one. We talked about what we would do if we couldn’t make it to Australia, and discussed doing it in the UK in a castle. 

‘Then we got really excited about the prospect of it, and now it’s here we can’t wait to get up there and get started.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! launches on Sunday November 15, ITV1 at 9:00pm.
