Amanda Holden has revealed her sex life is ‘non-existent’ because she and her husband are both so busy.
Just like every other mum on the planet, 45-year-old Amanda seems to have her hands full taking care of her family and managing a million other things – in her case, a busy TV career.
And it seems her day-to-day schedule is taking a toll on her romantic life, as she says her husband Chris Hughes is ‘prioritised after the pet fish.’
‘We’re both so busy. It’s about trying to carve out a bit of time for us – we have to explain to the girls that they must go to bed and let us have time alone, which is hard. My poor husband – he’s so far down the list’, the mum-of-three told Daily Mirror.

And while we’re used to her sweeter side on TV as a Britain’s Got Talent judge, Amanda says she tries to be strict with her kids at home, unlike her husband Chris.
‘I’m strict, but Chris isn’t – the girls just laugh in his face. He tries to get me to fight his battles, and I say, “No way, you do it”.
‘We’re quite a traditional household, I think. He throws them around, tickles and plays with them, and I do absolutely everything else. He’s got a good deal.’
But despite her busy schedule, she still makes time for one of every mum’s favourite hobbies – embarrassing their children.
‘Every day my girls say things like, “You’re not wearing that are you?” or “Put some make-up on,” or “Your breath smells of coffee,” so I think I embarrass them more’, she said.
‘I do this thing at the moment when I drop Lexie off at school – I wind the window down and shout, “I love you!” and she turns round and glares at me. Or I turn the music up really loud and wind the windows down so I’m like a rapper mum. It’s hilarious!’ Amanda definitely sounds like one of the funnier mums at the school gates!
The couple have been married for almost eight years
The actress has been married to record producer Chris since 2008 and the two welcomed their first child, Alexa Louise Florence Hughes, in 2006.
In 2011, the star had a stillbirth and lost their baby son, who they called Theo.
Later in 2012, she had another traumatic experience when she almost died giving birth to her third child, Hollie, after losing a lot of blood during labour.
