Amanda Holden has joked she’s ‘as shocked as Lauren Silverman’ after Simon Cowell revealed he is engaged to his long-term partner.

After going public with their romance in 2013, Simon, 62, – who shares seven-year-old son Eric with Lauren, 44 – has finally put a ring on it, with pal Amanda sharing her reaction today.

The star, who appears alongside the media mogul on Britain’s Got Talent, has already been trying to find out her friend’s wedding plans after getting the heads up via text on Tuesday evening.

Appearing on Heart FM on Wednesday, Amanda said: ‘Last night we all got the text saying, “It’s happening” and we couldn’t believe it, and I knew it would be in the papers today if we got the text last night. So I was like “oh my goodness!”‘

She told co-hosts Jamie Theakston and Ashley Roberts: ‘I have to say, I’m probably as shocked as Lauren!

‘Simon said he would never get married, and obviously Lauren has been by his side and you now they’ve been through so much together, and I think she’s the one, but I don’t know if she ever thought he would put a ring on it!

How the tables turn, eh?
