AMANDA Holden has revealed the secret to her 15 year marriage, confessing she and her husband Chris Hughes have a strict rule for date nights.
Presenter Amanda, 52, met record producer Chris in 2003 during a trip to Los Angeles, but they only started dating the following year.
The pair, who share daughters Lexie, 17, and Hollie, 11, tied the knot in 2008 in a Christmas-themed ceremony.
Aside from their two girls, Amanda and Chris are parents to Theo, who was stillborn at seven months in 2011.
In a new interview with OK! Magazine, she lifted the lid on their happy marriage and how they make it work.
The Britain's Got Talent judge said, “The main secret behind a successful marriage is to have a bloody good sense of humour!

"Plus, I really fancy Chris. We’ll be eating dinner in a restaurant, he’ll go to the loo, then I’ll look up and catch a glimpse of a man and think he’s fit! Then I’ll realise, 'Gosh, that’s my husband!' I still fancy him.
"Also, Chris challenges me and I challenge him – that’s another secret to a good marriage.”
The couple have a strict ban on discussions about work during date nights too, despite their exciting careers.
The pair wed at St Margaret's Church in Somerset, with the reception held at Babington House – an exclusive members club and hotel.
