Amanda Holden "hates" New Year's Eve (31.12.13).

The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge - who has daughters Lexi, seven, and Hollie, 23 months, with husband Chris Hughes - never does anything to celebrate the turning of the year, but admits her best and most memorable celebration came after she split from first husband Les Dennis.

Asked her New Year's Eve plans, she said: "Normally we have dinner in then go to bed. I hate it.

"Ironically, the best one I've had was after Les and I had spent our first Christmas apart after our divorce and all my girlfriends, including Sian Reeves and Sarah Parish, had split from their partners. We went to Barcelona and had a lovely dinner and a dance."

Amanda always makes the same new year's resolution - but admits she never sticks to it.

She said: "Every year I say I won't interrupt people, and every year I carry on interrupting people."

The 42-year-old star loves the festive season and is always happy to overindulge and abandon her diet and exercise regime.

She said: "I love running and yoga and I won't do any of that. I just love my food."
