    The Britain’s Got Talent judge was enjoying a sun soaked European getaway with her husband Chris Hughes and their daughters Hollie and Lexi when she suffered the nasty mishap.

    During a day spent out at sea playing on an inflatable obstacle course, Amanda managed to snap her leg in two places and end up being rushed to a local hospital.

    Confirming the shock news yesterday, Amanda said on her Heart FM show, “Sadly this is true. I suffered a nasty accident while playing in the sea with the family during our half-term holiday and subsequently broke my leg in two places.
