Amanda’s birthday celebrations comes after she was reported to police for making a 215-mile trip from London to Cornwall during lockdown.  

The Britain’s Got Talent judge went to see her parents after she got a ‘distressing phone call’ from her stepfather Les Collister on the weekend before her 50th birthday.

Amanda took a black Mercedes from Richmond to a small hamlet near Bude to see the 75-year-old and her 71-year-old mother Judith on Friday – it is believed she had not seen the pair for a year prior to the visit. 

Devon and Cornwall Police had previously warned visitors that they would face a fine for breaking lockdown restrictions but a source has since told The Sun: ‘Officers turned up at [Amanda’s] parents’ this afternoon to ask about the visit.

‘As they left they said this would be the end of the matter.’

Friends of Amanda said although she knew she should not have made the journey, she was so concerned about her parents’ welfare she felt she had no option.

One said: ‘Amanda got a call on Friday afternoon and felt she had no other choice but to get down there as quickly as she could.

‘Because of the issues involved with their health, she knew she had to go – there was no way she couldn’t.

‘She knows she has done something wrong and she is regretful but until you are in that moment, how can you judge?

‘In order to ensure she posed as little risk as possible, she drove alone, leaving her husband and daughters at home.

‘She did not come into contact with anyone else.’
