Amanda Holden has found herself on the bad side of the internet today after she posted a photo of her daughter in fancy dress.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge shared a photo of her daughter 9-year-old daughter, Lexi, dressed as Julia Roberts’ character in Pretty Woman, captioning: “1990’s day at Lexi’s school today. Julia Roberts ‘Pretty Woman’.”
For anyone who may not know, Julia Roberts’ character in the hit movie was a prostitute, and it would seem that Amanda’s choice of outfit for her daughter has outraged many people.
It didn’t take long for the presenter to be blasted online, with many claiming that the outfit was completely inappropriate for such a young child. The tweet was deleted less than eight minutes after it was shared online.

Things got even more confusing when Amanda claimed that not only was Lexi actually dressed as Cindy Crawford, but that her husband had shared it on her Twitter account by accident mistaking it for his own private Facebook account. Eh?!
The statement read:
“The truth is that Lexi went to school as Cindy Crawford for her school '90s Day – not Julia Roberts – as anyone who heard me yesterday at BGT – and indeed the teachers at Lexi's school – will confirm. However my husband thought she looked more like Julia Roberts, without any thought to any interpretation."
"Although given that she is a 9-year-old girl it seems completely unbelievable and disturbing that anyone could or would put such an interpretation on it. Julia Roberts is one of the most beautiful and iconic women in the world and so, as a proud father, he wanted to post the similarity on his own private Facebook account. He hit the wrong button and posted it on my twitter account- but removed it as soon as he realised. The first I knew about it as I was contacted by the media whilst filming today."
"Needless to say my husband is mortified. And just as an aside, on the school run this morning we bumped into 'Mia Wallace' from Pulp Fiction and ‘Mr Pink’ from Reservoir dogs!"
Okaaaaay Amanda…We believe you. Thousands wouldn’t – but we do.
