Taking to Instagram Stories, the presenter said: “Early mornings… this is my secret!” before revealing that she takes a Revive Collagen Enhanced Plus sachet every morning as she gets ready. “Everybody always says to me, ‘Gosh, getting up for Heart Breakfast you must be absolutely tired, you must be whacked.’ The thing that keeps me awake and it’s part of my routine every single morning is my Revive Collagen.”

Collagen is well known for its hair, skin and nail-supporting powers, thanks to marine collagen which helps our own collagen production along, but Amanda says the supplement, for which she’s an ambassador, helps her to stay awake, thanks to vitamins B6, B12, C and D. “I take one of these when I’m applying a bit of lippie and it’s a life-saver, plus it tastes like a pornstar martini first thing in the morning!”

Amanda Holden swears by yoga
“I got into yoga because after Hollie was born I’d been on a ventilator and I had a lot of lung problems. Kundalini yoga is all about breathwork, so I took it on to build my strength. A lot of people advised me to do it for calmness, too. I don’t really sit still, I’m always on the go.”
As well as the mental benefits, she says her body shape has also reaped the rewards of yoga.
“There’s one exercise called the Breath Fire which is great for abs,” she said. “But it’s also a good pick-me-up when you’re tired – honestly, it’s better than a cup of coffee! My body got strong and any excess fat disappeared. It’s definitely made my tummy flatter.”
