Amanda Holden looks youthful in minimal make-up after rehearsals for Shrek the Musical

Princess Prep: A fresh-faced Amanda Holden was spotted leaving the Theatre Royal Drury Lane after rehearsing for Shrek the Musical

As a judge on Britain’s Got Talent we are used to seeing Amanda Holden with a face of professionally-done makeup to ensure she is looking picture perfect for those close-up shots.

But as she proved yesterday the 40-year-old looks just as good fresh-faced as she stepped out with minimal makeup to attended rehearsals.

As Amanda emerged from the Theatre Royal after practicing her role for Shrek the Musical she showed off her youthful looks.

The actress was dressed casually in a pair of white jeans and a gold vest covered with a cream kaftan and sheepskin lined boots.

Her hair which is usually seen coiffed into a sleek bob was seen with natural curls falling around her face.

Amanda was carrying a brown satchel and a Mickey Mouse printed London bag from the Disney store as she got into her car to be driven home.

Minimal makeup: Amanda, 40, looked youthful as she got into her car to head home after the practice. The actress will appear as Princess Fiona in previews of the show tomorrow

She later tweeted that the run-though with the orchestra ‘went really well’ and is ready for more rehearsals today ahead of the previews tomorrow.

The BGT judge will be bringing the character of Princess Fiona, voiced by Cameron Diaz in the animated films, to life on stage in the West End show.

Miss Holden will tread the boards alongside Nigel Lindsay as grumpy ogre Shrek, Richard Blackwood as his sidekick Donkey and Nigel Harman as the villainous Lord Farquaard.

From judge to Princess: Amanda will take on the role voiced by Cameron Diaz in the animated films and seen on Britain's Got Talent

The Britain’s Got Talent judge said preparing for the musical ‘has put a smile on my face’ after she lost her baby son seven months into her pregnancy earlier this year.

She also revealed just how excited her five-year-old daughter Lexi was to see the production, which opens officially on June 14, especially as Princess Fiona is her favourite film character.

She said: ‘Lexi’s been watching me tap-dance in the kitchen. She’s dying to see the full show.’
