Celebrity Dining: Amanda Holden EXCLUSIVE: Inside Britain’s Got Talent judge’s home makeover

Celebrity Dining:

She has already given fans a glimpse of the downstairs of her newly renovated Surrey home, complete with a stylish kitchen.

Now Amanda Holden, 48, has called in help to tackle getting the messy bedrooms and playroom upstairs picture perfect.

In a video shared on Instagram by Style Sisters, Gemma Lilly, 31, and Charlotte Reddington, 32, from Essex, they reveal how the Britain’s Got Talent judge has given them exclusive access to her beautiful Petersham abode.

Home sweet home: Amanda Holden, 48, has called in help to tackle getting the messy bedrooms and playroom at her Surrey home

The footage shows inside Amanda’s vast walk-in wardrobe, filled with designer shoes including Louboutins and Jimmy Choos, and outfits including the dazzling orange £1,232 Alex Perry number she wore to the BGT auditions in Manchester in January.

The footage shows the stylists – who specialise in wardrobe detoxes costing from £250 to more than £1,000 – starting in the ‘organised chaos’ of the huge playroom belonging to Amanda and husband Chris Hughes’ two daughters Lexi, 12, and Hollie, six.

There are piles of toys all across the floor – in-keeping with Amanda’s ethos that she likes her house to look lived in and ‘not like a show home’.

Helping hands: Style Sisters, Gemma Lilly, 31, and Charlotte Reddington, 32, from Essex were given access to the BGT star’s  beautiful Petersham abode

Before and after: Amanda’s daughters’ playroom was described as ‘organised chaos’ by the Style Sisters with toys covering every surface before storage solutions transformed the space 

As well as at least 50 Barbie and Ken dolls, there is a £200 Barbie Dreamhouse, a £100 Barbie plan, as well as soft toys and books on the floor to arrange – including two, The Ice Monster and Geronimo, by Amanda’s fellow BGT judge David Walliams.

Little Hollie is even pictured helping the stylists – and said after it was finished: ‘Mummy, I love my playroom I can see all my Barbies!’

Charlotte says: ‘We are starting in the kids’ toy room this morning and then we are going to work our way around the rest of the house. We can’t wait to show you!’

Gemma adds: ‘We are going to create a nice crafts area for her daughter, we are going to do a boards games section and just keep everything really categorised, easy to reach and easy to find.

‘This is organised chaos don’t worry. It gets super messy before it gets super tidy. This is going to become the Barbie corner and there’s a lot of Barbies! It’s so cute.’

Fans are also given a glimpse into Amanda’s huge walk-in wardrobe, and her collection of designer clothes, jewellery and shoes, including Louboutins and Jimmy Choos.

After: Amanda has previously revealed how husband Chris converted their fourth bedroom into a walk-in wardrobe for her, and with the help of the sisters it’s now immaculate

The footwear, from strappy sandals to towering heels, is arranged over seven shelves and colour coordinated – from beiges and whites at the bottom, to orange black and gold.

The Style Sisters also sort Amanda’s jewellery collection – and viewers can see boxes emblazoned with celebrity favourite Monica Vinader.

Gemma says: ‘The room is organised, we are actually really impressed with the shoe coordination.

Busting at the seams: The fashion fan had an overflowing wardrobe with a mix of designer and highstreet garments

Assistant for the day: Little Hollie is even pictured helping the stylists, bringing in the matching hangers used to transform her mother’s closet

That’s better! Charlotte said ‘Changing hangers can make a real big difference… you just get so much more in, it looks neater than when all the hangers are different levels ’

‘We are now going through all the jewellery and putting it into these drawers, so watch this space.’ 

Amanda has previously revealed how Chris converted their fourth bedroom into a walk-in wardrobe for her with a dressing table mirror by Strachan Furniture that rises up at the press of a button, telling House Beautiful: ‘It’s very camp and I just love it.’

The TV star’s sartorial choices on BGT are often a talking point of the ITV1 shows – with the racy Julian Macdonald gown she wore during the BGT final in 2017 attracting 663 Ofcom complaints.

In the Style Sisters footage, fans can see the incredible £1,800 yellow satin dress by Alexis Mabille Amanda wore on the red carpet in January to film the first auditions for this year’s BGT tucked away in her wardrobe.

Organised chaos: In Lexie and Hollie’s playroom there are piles of toys everywhere– in-keeping with Amanda’s ethos that she likes her house to look lived in and ‘not like a show home’

And designer outfits and high street brands are mixed – in one shot, an H&M label is still on one of the items. 

Fans are then given a flash of what seems to be Lexi and Hollie’s wardrobe – brimming with hundreds of very colourful outfits. 

The Style Sisters were at the star’s house for two full days – finishing at 2am in the morning.

Mid-way through, Amanda arrived home and surprised Gemma and Charlotte by bringing them a ‘sip’ of rose wine. 

In exclusive footage, she says: ‘I thought two fingers worth of Rose with a bit of ice to celebrate would be okay! C
