Amanda Holden dons black on rainy return to UK after Christmas holiday in sun

Amanda Holden was pictured beaming on Tuesday morning despite the gloomy weather in the UK as she returned to Heart Radio studios in London.

Like most people in the country, the 50 year old made her return to work after the holidays this week, following time spent away at a luxurious undisclosed sunny location with her family.

After days sharing a series of snaps of herself abroad rocking a bikini on social media, Amanda was photographed back in suitable on-duty attire as she made her way into the studios to begin hosting her morning show with Heart Radio.

The presenter wore a grey cropped cardigan with a peekaboo cut-out detail at the chest, a black pencil skirt showing off her enviable figure and a pair of black court heels with gold straps to complete the look.

Amanda added a black furry trimmed long coat over her shoulders to block out the cold and held a giant umbrella to shield her chic outfit from the rain that poured down in the early hours before entering the building.

The radio host made sure to tag her ensemble on her Instagram page in case any of her followers wished to source pieces of her sophisticated workwear.

Posting a photo of herself sat on top a desk indoors and a boomerang showing her walking confidently, Amanda looked relaxed stepping foot back into the office.

Her calm demeanour was presumably down to the fact that she made sure she was well rested the night before, sharing on Instagram Stories a video of herself tucked up in a bed Monday before returning back to her early morning hosting gig the next day.

“See you on Heart Breakfast at 6.30 tomorrow,” Amanda told her 1.8 million followers in the clip, which displayed tick emojis alongside the caption: “Up for it, alarm on.”
