Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has played with fire on social media today, uploading a very risky leg-baring video featuring her new dress.

The TV and radio personality was in the studio for her iHeartRadio show when she filmed a boomerang for Instagram channelling a very Basic Instinct moment.

In the video, the host swivelled in her chair, uncrossing her leg as she turned in a nod to Sharon Stone’s very famous, and very risqué, leg-crossing scene in the 1992 film.

In the scene Sharon Stone famously uncrosses her leg’s while asking Michael Douglas’ character about his sex life, revealing she isn’t wearing any underwear in a now-iconic film moment.

Amanda kept it far more PG-rated for her 1.5 million followers, avoiding any embarrassing flashes, though only by a whisker.

The cheeky video still had fans doing a double-take, however, many commenting that the video was a very near-miss, others complimenting the 49-year-old on her impeccable looks and fashion taste.

“That’s a close call,” one viewer joked.

“You look astonishing,” one fan wrote.

“Even sexier than when Sharon Stone did it,” one super fan wrote.

“Good lord!!!” one slightly scandalised onlooker wrote.

It’s not the first time Amanda has kept fans on their toes, over the European summer she had jaws dropping left, right and centre with her stunning beach-side snaps.

Last month she had fans grooving when she danced around in the rain wearing only a vintage Coca Cola swimsuit while in self-isolation in a TikTok video.

Even back in April, the presenter shocked by slipping into a slinky bikini to mow the lawn at her home.
