AMANDA HOLDEN looks fabulous as she nears her 40th birthday and I can reveal her secret. She has been having her face ironed' by a doctor dubbed The London Lip Queen. The Britain's Got Talent judge has undergone a non-­surgical procedure on her complexion called Thermage, carried out by the renowned Dr Rita Rakus.
The star, left, has denied having her lips surgically enhanced although she has admitted she will do anything possible to maintain her youthful looks. A source said: Amanda sometimes has trouble with her skin and she wants to avoid having to wear thick cover-up, so she has resorted to Dr Rakus's Thermage treatment to help smooth out her skin. Amanda has been using Dr Rakus for Botox for years and is always popping into the clinic for a top-up.'
In 2008 Amanda admitted using Botox and she has said that she wouldn't rule out the surgeon's knife in the future. I would consider surgery if things started to drop. I haven't had any yet but I’d never say never,' she once revealed.
