Amanda Holden spotted for the first time since lockdown break on a bike ride
AMANDA Holden was pictured for the first time since she breached lockdown rules to visit her parents in Cornwall.
The Britain's Got Judge, who turned 50 last week, donned a pair of chevron- patterned gym leggings for a country bike ride yesterday.
The Heart FM presenter complemented her leggings with a form-fitting black hoodie, trainers and black baseball.
Amanda looked in her element as she cycled on her red bike while wearing a pair of oversized shades and draped a pink cross-body bag across her shoulder.
Her appearance comes a week after we exclusively revealed how Amanda dodged a fine after she was reported for allegedly breaching Covid rules to see her parents.
The Sun on Sunday told how her 430-mile round trip from London to Cornwall sparked fury among locals who accused her of endangering vulnerable residents.
Devon and Cornwall Police have warned visitors they face a fine.
But a source said yesterday: "Officers turned up at her parents’ this afternoon to ask about the visit.
"As they left they said this would be the end of the matter."
The star said she drove to near Bude after receiving a distressing family phone call on Friday afternoon, February 12.
She was seen getting out of a Mercedes at the home of her mum Judith, 71, and stepdad Leslie, 75.
It is thought she had not seen them for a year. She stayed overnight and left on Saturday, February 13.
A spokesman for the star said at the time she had travelled to the South West after receiving a distressing family phone call.
He said: "Amanda is aware that all families are going through difficulty during these turbulent times but received a distressing telephone call from her elderly father on Friday afternoon."
"On balance Amanda felt the round trip to Cornwall necessary to contain the matter at her family home. The very personal situation has now been aided and Amanda is back in London.
"Amanda did not act on a whim and has adhered to Covid rules every step of the way in all three lockdowns," he continued.
"Amanda is aware of the travel rules and is devastated she had to break them on this one occasion.
"Her parents are vaccinated and, with Amanda testing for Covid weekly, she felt she was not putting her parents at risk.
"She did not come in contact with any member of the public."
