Amanda Holden shares statement on 20-year marriage to husband Chris Hughes

Amanda Holden shares statement on 20-year marriage to husband Chris Hughes

The Britain's Got Talent judge gushed over her music producer hubby

Amanda Holden posted a sweet message to her 'best friend' on Instagram for their anniversary.

The Britain's Got Talent judge has given her followers an insight into her marriage to record producer husband Chris Hughes (and before you ask, no, we don't mean the 2017 Love Island star of the same name!)

Amanda, 52, and Chris tied the knot back in 2008 after four years together - two years after welcoming their first child, a daughter Alexa, in 2006.

The couple had first met back in 2003 whilst holidaying in Los Angeles before they took their relationship to the next level a year later.

This week, however, marked a very special time for Holden and her husband, as they celebrated their 20th anniversary of their relationship - and it's also been 15 years since they first exchanged vows.

Amanda Holden and Chris Hughes have just celebrated 20 years together.

Taking to Instagram on Monday with a heartfelt message to Chris, Amanda shared a sweet black and white snap of the duo staring lovingly into each other's eyes.

"15 years ago today, I married my best friend," she captioned the photo.

"20 years together. 2 Girls. An angel boy and we have made a beautiful life together!!!

"(having said everything above, we still bicker every day) #anniversary."

As well as their now 17-year-old daughter Alexa, the couple also share another daughter, Hollie, 11.

Back in 2011, the couple were expecting a son named Theo but Amanda tragically lost the baby at seven months.

And fellow celebrities and fans were quick to congratulate the two on their relationship milestone.

High-profile chef Jamie Oliver also added a series of clapping emojis to congratulate the duo.

"Happy Anniversary both of you! Very special day," one fan wrote in the comment section.

Another added: "Happy anniversary to my favourite couple!! i hope you both have a lovely loving day".

And a third gushed: "Happy Anniversary you gorgeous couple. Xx"

Prior to her marriage with Hughes, Amanda had been married to comedian Les Dennis but the pair broke up in 2000 after it was revealed she’d been having an affair with Men Behaving Badly star Neil Morrissey.

And she gave a pretty 'brutal' confession about why she ended things with Dennis which resurfaced recently.

She told the Mirror back in 2003 that she'd called time on their relationship after she was feeling really broody and was ready to have kids, but had realised former Strictly star Les wasn’t the one she wanted to raise a family with.

"I am very broody,” she said at the time. "Maybe I'll have children - wham bam - in a couple of years and have about four.

"I terribly want children but I didn't want to have them with Les.

"That's a horribly brutal thing to say, but when you do, you know you have to move on."
