Is Amanda on an extended 20 year contract on BGT?
Simon Cowell joined judge Amanda Holden on Heart Radio to discuss X Factor: The Band and Britain’s Got Talent. During the interview, Amanda gave Simon a written contract (we presume by her!) stating she’d officially see another 20 years on the show.
