Amanda Holden reveals she's failed 'Dry January' after getting VERY drunk in mid-week boozing session

AMANDA Holden revealed she had failed 'Dry January' and joked that she 'fell off the wagon quite majorly'.

The 49-year-old made the admission this morning on Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden, less than three weeks after committing to the sober challenge.

She confessed: "Let me just say, as the middle of the week, I fell off the wagon quite majorly last night…"

To which her co-host Jamie, 50, joked: "You didn’t only fall off the wagon, it was a spectacular pile-up."

"It fell off, the wheel came off, I didn’t have a spare one…," she giggled.

After Jamie claimed she was "within touching distance", Amanda admitted: "I know!

"And to anyone doing it, good on you! It was an interesting exercise. It felt great till the 19th and now it’s all over".

Run by Alcohol Change UK, Dry January is a campaign – with an accompanying Try Dry app – encouraging people to stop drinking alcohol during the first month of the year.

Alcohol Change's website shows the latest figures show that 86 per cent of Dry January participants saved money, while 70 per cent reported having better sleep and 66 per cent had more energy. This year, an estimated 6.5 million people plan to do Dry January, up from 3.9 million last year.


Many people will use Dry January for a post-Christmas detox, with Alcohol Change saying the month-long movement lets you take control of your relationship with booze and drives a conversation about alcohol.

Elsewhere, Amanda has not let the winter cold stop her from keeping fit, going for a run in nothing but a sports crop and leggings.

Last week, the Heart Breakfast radio presenter braved the freezing weather in a striking blue matching bralette and sports tights set worth £140 from Reiss.

She topped off the look with a baseball cap emblazoned with the Mercedes Benz logo and rose gold wireless headphones.

Amanda posed with her hands on her hips, smiling to the camera as she showed off how she keeps her enviable body so toned

"Running to keep happy as happy as well as healthy," the mum-of-two captioned the Instagram post.

Tune in to Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden weekdays from 06:30 – 10:00.
