Amanda's impression of Thatcher came during a segment on season 4 of Netflix's The Crown, which sees Gillian Anderson playing the famous politician.

Launching into the impressive impersonation, Amanda said: "I really like her [Gillian Anderson] as Margaret Thatcher."

Showbiz reporter and fellow host Ashley Roberts, 39, was visibly impressed.

"Oh my God, that's so good!" exclaimed Ashley.

Amanda continued, laughing: "I used to do that when I was eight - along with Gladys Pugh from Hi-De-Hi."

Elaborating on how to mimic the former Prime Minister, Amanda explained that everything Thatcher said was "very measured, with a slight head tilt".

It comes as Gillian Anderson's performance as Thatcher becomes one of the hit show's main talking points online.
