Amanda Holden transforms into a glamorous witch with jet black hair in sweet Halloween snap with daughter Hollie

AMANDA Holden bewitched her fans with a spellbinding Halloween makeover.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, 49, wore a jet black wig and a pointy purple hat as she became a witch to make some spooky treats with daughter Hollie eight.

Holding up a ghostly doughnut, Amanda showed off her pearly white teeth as she leaned over her kitchen worktop.

She asked: "What are your plans for Halloween? 👻 I’m looking for some outfit inspiration! Let’s make the best of it 🕷."

The fancy dress look was a hit, with fans suggesting the hair new hair could be a keeper.

"Hair colour suits you 😁," wrote one.

A second posted: "Black hair color looks beautiful😍."

A third said: "Really suit the black hair 😍."

Just days ago The Sun revealed Amanda and her BGT co-star Alesha Dixon have won their battle to get bumper equal pay rises — after the show’s boss Simon Cowell backed their cash fight.

The salaries of the two women will be subject to an internal review after we revealed they earn less than half that of David Walliams.

Alesha, 42, was said to be particularly upset after The Sun told how comedian Walliams, 49, earned more than £1.5million on the ITV show, compared to stand-in head judge Amanda’s £700,000 and her own £450,000. 

Cowell, 61, gets more than £2.5million but he devised the format, and owns the rights to the hit franchise around the world.

And tonight it was revealed that he was shocked when he discovered the gap in his fellow judges’ wages.

A source said: “Alesha was rightly upset when she read the pay discrepancies in black and white. The story also ruffled feathers behind the scenes. Simon realised this apparent sexism wasn’t a good look. He’s demanded something be done, and the matter is being reviewed.

“Although Simon isn’t responsible for pay deals, he obviously has great sway and he has asked that the matter be investigated internally so that this sort of situation doesn’t arise again.”

Speaking recently, Amanda said: “I do feel Alesha and I should be paid the same as Simon Cowell and David Walliams. Because why is their value higher than ours? I don’t understand it.”

Talent contracts for the show are negotiated by ITV, production company Thames and the artist’s agent.
