The controversial social media influencer slammed Amanda Holden's decision to share a bikini snap from her holiday

Twitter was set alight on Monday when outspoken web personality Andrew Tate decided to share his opinion on one of Amanda Holden's photos.

The Britain's Got Talent judge had taken to Twitter and Instagram to show off her ageless looks while posing in a black bikini on holiday.

While a number of fans and famous faces praised Holden's appearance, Tate decided to offer his alternative view.

In view of his 7.4million Twitter followers, he replied to Holden: "You are a wife and a mother and you're far past a teenager.

"There is no need for this post," he added.

The tweet, which Holden is yet to publicly respond to, has garnered over 2.9 million views and racked up over 71k likes since it was posted.

Following the controversial take, a number of fans rushed to Holden's defence - including some recognisable names.

Loose Women star and ITV News presenter Charlene White hit out at Tate on Twitter as she penned: "Attention-seeking by attempting to troll @AmandaHolden?!

"Someone ought to take up crochet and stop entering grown-up conversations."

While barrister Charlotte Proudman tweeted: "Self proclaimed misogynist, Andrew Tate has been charged with rape & under house arrest but that doesn’t stop him taking to Twitter to make sexist jibes about Amanda Holden — whilst age & body shaming her.

"'The king of toxic masculinity' strikes again," she blasted.

Meanwhile, a flood of fans clearly felt the same way about Tate's response.

One fan decided to poke fun at Tate's own photos he shares online, as they wrote: "Pretty sure smoking cigars are more harmful than posting an innocent bikini picture on twitter."

While a second added: "You're one to talk. You're constantly 'topless' and very few people want to see that!"

Another fan took aim at Tate's social media presence: "Tate, you put some clothes on too."

And a fourth fan echoed alongside a snap of Tate alongside an anime character: "He says this nonsense to someone then posts this on his own social media lol.
"Also, he is a father and shirtless and not a teenager."

Holden has been regularly updating her fanbase with snaps from her sun-soaked holiday and fans will be hoping Tate's remark won't slow her down.

Earlier this week, Holden showed off her toned physique as she lay across the front of a boat in a barely-there two-piece.

While she kicked off the holiday snaps last week by flaunting her toned torso while striking a pose in a green bikini.

The BGT judge even stopped for a rare selfie with her husband Chris Hughes.
