Amanda Holden has hurt her leg after falling over while running to her hot tub in the nude.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge said she couldn’t be bothered to put anything on so decided to quickly dash down the garden for a session in the tub.

But she came a cropper when she slipped on some black ice and fell.

Holden, 50, opened up about her tumble on her Heart radio show.

She told fellow presenter Jamie Theakston: “I'm not going to lie Jamie, I don't know if it's the cold weather or what it is, I am in so much pain today down one leg. You know when you think, it's me age.

“And then I remembered that, at the weekend, we're lucky enough to have a hot tub in our garden, and my husband walks down in his dressing gown. I always think, 'Oh I'm not going to bother with that, I'll just run down there naked and run back in'."

'You know I like being naked!” she added.

“But I don't have a towelling dressing gown, I've got fluffy ones, so when you get out of a hot tub in a fluffy dressing gown, there's nothing absorbing anything and it's really squidgy inside.

"I started running across the patio, did not see there was black ice, I mean luckily I had my hands up. And I slipped right on my bum and elbow, and I've got a lovely bruise!"

Holden continued: "But it was right on the fleshy part of my bum, that's why God invented bums isn't it? Because they are like the cushions so you can fall over, when you are 50 and fall on black ice.”

The TV star said she went into the hot tub and later realised that she had been left bruised by her slip.

“But it's only affected me now,” said the mum-of-two.

“And then I’ve worked out, it's also the leg I broke. Remember I broke my leg the first time I started the show?”

When Theakston joked about being sorry he’d asked how she was, Holden laughed: “But I'm getting to be like a proper old person, I'm telling you all my ailments. 

"I'm 50 you know!”
