Amanda Holden went braless as she departed Heart FM’s London studios on Thursday after showing support for former co-star David Walliams.
The BGT judge, 52, looked incredible in a tight polo neck top that she teamed with a green leather midi skirt.
She elevated her height with a pair of tan stilettos and carried a matching handbag.
Amanda styled her blonde hair with a slight wave and shielded her eyes with some large sunglasses.
It comes after Amanda was pictured at David’s 52nd birthday party earlier this month – alongside a whole host of showbiz royalty.

David and Simon Cowell’s friendship is said to be ‘on the rocks’ as the comedian sues his former bosses at Britain’s Got Talent.
The Little Britain creator, 52, is seeking significant damages from London-based Fremantle for a data protection breach after he quit his £1.5million a year job when audio surfaced of him making vile remarks about contestants during a break in filming.
And while David and Simon’s once close friendship is said to be on the brink of collapse, the comedian has a number of stars who are still supporting him in the wake of the controversy.
While Amanda and Alesha are fiercely loyal to Simon, they also formed a close friendship with David.
The comedian took his seat alongside them as a host of Britain’s Got Talent for ten years, before he stepped down from his role last year.
Former Strictly judge Bruno Tonioli took his place. When David announced he was departing the show, Amanda said on The One Show: ‘We’ll miss David.’
Distance is said to have grown between Simon and David as he seeks significant damages from London-based Fremantle, which produces the reality series for ITV .
Legal paperwork suggests he is accusing bosses of leaking details of his rude comments to a newspaper.
Court papers lodged at the High Court in London last Thursday, accuse the firm of data protection breach over the leaked transcript which prompted a swift end to ten year long stint as a judge on the show.

Walliams, who is worth around £17million, quit the show last November, two weeks after he was caught calling an elderly contestant a ‘c***’ during a break in filming.
He was also heard disparaging a female contestant, calling her a ‘slightly boring girl you meet in the pub that thinks you want to f*** them, but you don’t’.

Comedian Clare Harrison Mccartney later claimed these comments were about her and branded Walliams a ‘sad misogynist’, but producers on the show denied the remarks were aimed at her.
Bruno later took over from him on the talent show, signing a big money deal .
A source told The Sun about David’s decision to leave at the time: ‘He hasn’t taken the decision lightly, but it just feels like time to move on.’
‘David has decided to bow out after a ten-year run. He wants to leave on a high after a wonderful time.
‘His team have quietly been having conversations over the past few days where it has been made clear that David is readying himself to step down – and then producers will start to think about who might replace him.’
The star has hired legal company Brandsmiths, who specialise in data protection breaches.
Reports earlier this year claimed that Walliams quit BGT after the lewd and rude comments which he made during filming the show at the London Palladium in 2020 were exposed.
However, sources at the time suggested that he was actually pushed after a crisis management team was drafted in by Fremantle to manage the scandal which led to the former Little Britain comic apologising.

The comments, made in January 2020 during auditions at the London Palladium, were picked up on the programme’s microphones.
He and his lawyers argued at the time that they were private conversations that were never intended for broadcast but two weeks later he was ousted.
In one incident, an older performer engaged in light-hearted banter with the judges in which he made a jibe about Walliams, an expose by The Guardian claimed.
After the audition, the pensioner left, after which Walliams is said to have described him as a ‘c**t’ three times.
In a separate incident, after a female contestant had walked off stage, Walliams remarked: ‘She’s like the slightly boring girl you meet in the pub that thinks you want to f*** them, but you don’t.’ He later added: ‘I know, she’s just like: ‘Oh, f*** off!’ I was saying, she thinks you want to f*** her, but you don’t.
‘It’s the last thing on your mind, but she’s like: ‘Yep, I bet you do!’
‘No I don’t! I had a bit of a b***r, but now it’s going, it’s now shrivelled up inside my body.’
After the transcript was released a source at Britain’s Got Talent told the Mail it ‘could not have come at a worse time’ for Walliams as his deal to return to the show had not been finalised.
They added: ‘David’s remarks have now become a huge part of the conversation.
‘He hasn’t signed any deal yet which has come as a relief because now there are options.
‘It is a family show and this isn’t just a negative thing to happen, it is offensive to people.’
Walliams was axed from the show after makin vile remarks about contestants, including one female competitor. Comedian Clare Harrison McCartney (pictured) claimed she was the subject of the these remarks, although this has been denied by BGT producers

Walliams, one of the UK’s best-known television personalities and children’s book authors, was forced to apologise for his outbursts – but insisted that they were private conversations.
In a statement given to the Guardian after the transcripts were revealed, Walliams said: ‘I would like to apologise to the people I made disrespectful comments about during breaks in filming for Britain’s Got Talent in 2020.
‘These were private conversations and – like most conversations with friends – were never intended to be shared. Nevertheless, I am sorry.’
However, it was confirmed weeks later that he would not be returning to the show.
ITV said at the time that it did not ‘condone’ the language used and had spoken to producers of BGT.
Fremantle declined to comment.
