Amanda Holden says the "Britain's Got Talent" judges have gotten softer since becoming parents.
The 48-year-old television presenter thinks the reason her fellow judges Simon Cowell and Alicia Dixon have been seen weeping on this year's show is because they have become more sensitive now they've had children.
Simon welcomed his son Eric into the world with his partner Lauren Silverman five years ago, the same year Alicia gave birth to her daughter Azura, whom she has with husband Azuka Ononye.
When Amanda - who has two daughters of her own, 13-year-old Alexa and seven-year-old Hollie - appeared on "The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show" on Friday (24.05.19) and was quizzed about having "toughened up" on screen, she replied: "I've left it to Alicia now. When Alicia had her little girl ... she was hard as nails when she joined, now she weeps everywhere! It's like a competition to see whose tear can drop first."
Zoe then added that "even Simon has started crying now", and Amanda replied: "I know, it is a part of being a parent. You just turn into an emotional wreck!"
Meanwhile, fourth judge David Walliams - who is the only critique on the panel without kids - blubbed like a baby when pupils from Flakefleet Primary in Fleetwood, Lancashire, did a performance of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" for their audition, which prompted David to press his golden buzzer.
Speaking about the sweet moment, Amanda said: "When his golden buzzer came on, he had a full on break down.
"I cried more at him crying at the act. He's a giant of a man and he's very sensitive and funny. But I've never seen that side of him ever. It was truly madly deeply snot - the whole lot!"
Amanda added she especially enjoyed being "sewn in half" by magician Dan Rhodes because she loved watching such acts when she was younger.
She said: "I was a big fan of Debbie McGee and Paul Daniels. I was always like, "I want to be a magician's assistant."
