Amanda Holden has revealed she would like to bow out of her judging role on Britain's Got Talent next year.

The 44-year-old actress is currently filming her ninth series of ITV's reality talent show and has said she would like to make it to ten before calling it a day.

At Saturday's London auditions she told The Mirror, " "I would love to make it to ten years and then call it a day. Ten years is an amazing feat.

"I want a nice big clock when I leave and some holiday in the sunshine. And a retirement package."

Amanda has been with the show since its launch in 2007 and has judged alongside Simon Cowell, David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan, Aleesha Dixon, and David Walliams.

Outside of BGT she has starred in series Wild at Heart and Cutting It as well as several stage roles including the leading role in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Princess Fiona in Shrek the Musical.

However, she is also forging a career as a presenter having fronted the musical show Superstar and filling in for Holly Willoughby on This Morning.  She also revealed she will be fronting a new project for Endemol, the makers of Big Brother.
