Will Amanda Holden say goodbye to Britain's Got Talent?

Amanda Holden has hinted that she is planning to quit Britain's Got Talent.

The actress and TV star has been judging acts on the ITV1 talent show for nine series, but it seems she might be retiring her buzzer after the tenth season next year, reported the Daily Mirror.

"I would love to make it 10 and then call it a day," said the star, speaking while filming the ninth series.

"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."

But Amanda's fans needn't worry, because even if she does wave goodbye to BGT, the star will apparently be hosting a new TV show for Endemol.

However, she remained tight-lipped when it came to details, revealing only that her new venture would be "a great thing".

Amanda is celebrating her 44th birthday today and it looks like she will be tucking into a BGT cake, complete with mini icing figures of her fellow panellists Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

The ninth series of Britain's Got Talent will be screened later this year.
