Controversial influencer Andrew Tate sparked outrage with his comments about the BGT judge in July

Amanda Holden has shared a series of racy bikini snaps across her social media channels this summer after enjoying time in the sun with her family.

However, back in late-July, one snap garnered the attention of controversial online personality Andrew Tate.

The outspoken figure took to Twitter where he commented on one of the 52-year-old's bikini photos: "'You are a wife and a mother and you're far past a teenager.

"There is no need for this post," he signed off, sparking waves of furious followers hitting out at his remarks.

Holden decided not to engage with Tate at the time, although the likes of Charlene White and other famous faces rushed to defend her.

But now, the Britain's Got Talent judge has addressed Tate's comment - and it's safe to say she's pulled no punches.

"Honestly, I had another shot of me in a bikini with just a close-up of my bum..." she began to the Telegraph.

Holden added: "I was tempted to post with the caption, 'Kiss my 52-year-old a**e.'

"But you just know something like that’s going to go on and on – in the end, why give him the oxygen?" Holden defiantly hit back.

Holden reiterated in the interview that she has no desire to stop sharing racy snaps "anytime soon" as she embraces her ageless look.

The TV personality even stripped off for a new show last month as she took part in Sky History's Sex: A Bonkers History.

And Holden is no stranger to sparking controversy for her risque appearance on-screen, sparking over 200 Ofcom complaints back in 2020 for a daring BGT outfit.

Tate, on the other hand, found himself in hot water earlier this when he was placed on house arrest in Romania.

The 36-year-old is currently on house arrest at his home in Bucharest following sex trafficking charges.

While Tate's comments on the post garnered plenty of attention, Holden also received an outpouring of compliments from other famous faces.

Replying to the photo of the star in her lime green bikini, fellow presenter Davina McCall commented on Instagram: "Is it wrong that im in total awe of your calf muscles," followed by a series of laughing emojis.

While Loose Women's Denise Welch quipped: "Stop posting photos from your 20’s!!! FFS," alongside sweating emojis. (sic)
