Full of hot air: Amanda Holden gets made into a balloon fairy on this Saturday's Britain's Got Talent show
Earlier this week the size of Amanda Holden's lips aroused suspicions amongst some observors, but whether or not she's had them cosmetically enhanced remains a mystery.
However, on tomorrow's Britain's Got Talent she'll be hard pressed to deny that there are at least a few things on her that have been pumped up.
In this case though the talent show judge is merely made to wear some colourful balloons that have been expertly moulded and shaped during the auditions in Newcastle.
Suspicious: The actress looks unimpressed as the Balloon Brothers give her a handful of colourful balloons at the beginning of their act
An amusing act, cleverly named the Balloon Brothers, transform the actress into a fairy with the aid of their moulding balloons.
She joins the twosome on stage, where she plays along as their assistant before being given a pair of wings, a wand and a tiara...all made from balloons.
Unaware of what the Durham duo are doing, Amanda initially sports a confused look on her face as they kit her out in the pink balloon ensemble

Fairy good: Amanda beams as she realises she's been dressed up with a tiara, wings and a wand by the talented double act
However, once she realises that they are making her into a cute sugarplum fairy she wears a beaming smile, before returning to join Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan on the judging panel.
The twosome, Keith Stirman and Dominic Cassidy, make their intricate creations while playing music from the Blues Brothers movie.
They arrive on stage in a police car made entirely from balloons before calling Amanda up on to the stage.
Dream come true: Stephen Mulhern gets the jet pack he always wanted when the Balloon Brothers construct one for him
After their act they head backstage to make Stephen Mulhern a jet pack he's always wanted.
Actress Amanda Holden also likens Simon Cowell to the Prime Minister during a chat with Stephen.
She tells him how much she loves working on Britain's Got Talent, explaining that a particular perk is flying round the country on Simon's private jet.
Dog's life: This Saturday's show features yet another act featuring a talented dog - this time the pooch plays his owner's guitar
Stephen asks Amanda what the three judges talk about on the plane, she tells him: 'He (Simon) really does talk very openly about everything, his private deals he's doing, his American shows.
'I just sit there thinking, this is unbelievable...It's kind of like being with the Prime Minister. He's right at the centre of show business, he is the person that everybody wants.'
Stephen also falls foul of Piers Morgan when he wipes gold paint on the judge's £2000 suit.
Watch your lip! Amanda Holden's lips look a little plump around the edges as she's pictured leaving Zuma restaurant in Knightsbridge earlier this week
After lending a helping hand to paint a naked model he bumps into Piers backstage and manages to wipe gold body paint all down the arm of Piers suit and across his face.
A few days later Piers is seen re-telling the story to Amanda, whilst Stephen is there.
He tells her: 'Do you know how intelligent Stephen is? He covers his hands in gold paint, comes up to me and goes "Alright mate" (wiping hands down his arms) ruins my suit, goes "Alright son" (wiping his hands on face). Ruins a £2000 suit and covers my face in gold paint.'
As well as the Balloon Brothers and the naked model, viewers can expect to see another dog with talent this week as a pooch takes to the stage to play his owner's guitar.

Stylish and classy: Sarah Jessica Parker shows off her trademark fashionable look at the New York City Ballet last night
After the shocking picture of her craggy face emerged, Sarah Jessica Parker's outing last night provided her with an opportunity to put her best face forward.
The 45-year-old actress was seen recently showing off her hollowed cheeks, and gaunt face as she ran errands in New York.
And along with her Madonna-like bulging, veiny arms, speculation centred on whether a new intense workout regime was having a negative impact on her body.
But last night at the New York City Ballet's Annual Spring Galathe she reminded everyone just why she has a reputation for being one of the most stylish women on the planet.
Made up: The actress put her best face forward after revealing an unflattering barefaced look the other day
Wearing an emerald green cropped silk jacket over a nude lace dress, the actress looked her usual glamorous self.
She accessorised the outfit with a pair of rhinestone studded Alexander McQueen heels, and embroidered clutch bag as she walked the red carpet at the glamorous affair.
But there were tell tale heavy bags under her eyes, evidence if any that it's hard work being the mother of three children.
Since the birth via a surrogate of twins Tabitha and Marion last summer, Parker has been working hard filming back to back films Sex And The City 2, and doing heavy promotion on her flop rom-com with Hugh Grant Did You Hear About The Morgans?
On fire: Natalie Portman looked red hot in an asymmetric dress by designers Lanvin
Despite her very low weight, SJP has in the past refuted allegations that she barely eats and has admitted she finds it difficult to gain weight.
She told Fitness magazine recently: 'I'm always trying to put weight on. I eat everything.
'I’m just an eater and I love junk food. If it’s free, I honestly eat everything.'
Also in attendance was actress Natalie Portman who looked red hot in Lanvin at the event which was held at New York's Lincoln Centre.
The 28-year-old Star Wars actress came to the event to support her boyfriend, New York City Ballet principal dancer Benjamin Millepied who created the world-premiere ballet for NYCB.

Model figure: Welsh underwear model Danielle Lineker has glowing skin and luscious hair at the launch of McQueens in east London last night
With legs as long as hers, Danielle Bux needs little more than a pair of high heels to get party ready.
The model wore an eye-catching pair of metallic ankle boots and denim mini shorts as she joined husband Gary Lineker for the launch party of a new bar last night.
With her naturally slender figure, the 30-year-old was the toast of the party.
The pair were joined by Jade Jagger at the launch of McQueens bar in east London, named after Steve McQueen.
Danielle was showing off a mahogany tan - a result of her recent holiday to Tenerife.
The break ended with a 24 hour journey home, after volcanic ash halted flights.
Show stealer: Danielle shows off her long tanned legs, with proud husband Gary
Bedtime: After happily posing for photographers, Danielle became camera shy
The couple and their five children boarded one of the few remaining flights from the island to Madrid, they then drove 343 miles to Bordeaux.
Gary’s sons George, 18, Harry, 17, Tobias, 14, Alex, 12, and Danielle’s daughter Ella, eight, all set off for the epic journey.
Once driving for seven hours to France, they then had to catch a train back to London, all so Gary could make it back to film Match Of The Day.

Personal style: Victoria Beckham's latest collection includes a red jersey dress with folded neck (left), a lamé chiffon and jersey asymmetric dress (centre), and Posh in one of her own designs at this year's Vanity Fair Oscar party (right)
It was not so long ago that Victoria Beckham was treated like a pariah in fashion circles.
Stylists sneered at the former Spice Girl's outfits and designers refused to loan her clothes, whispering that her endorsement was the kiss of death.
But Mrs Beckham has undergone one of the biggest fashion reincarnations since Burberry was transformed from a dowdy Home Counties staple into an international celebrity favourite.
As her fourth collection was presented in London yesterday, at Mayfair's Savile Club, stylists and editors ate low-fat slivers of humble pie while running the rule over dresses they now covet.
Two rails of frocks, each bearing her signature brass zip down the spine, drew admiration from even the most cynical fashionistas.
While the collection's structured simplicity had much in common with her previous ones, it revealed that Posh's designs have developed.
There was intricate seaming and more diaphanous fabrics such as chiffons and lamés
Fit for a lady: A twisted drape dress with corset bodice (left), a silk jersey with grosgrain embroidery (centre), and a fitted frock with fold detail in emerald felt (right)
Origami-influenced sheath dresses in heavy rib jerseys nestled alongside glossy raffia tweeds tailored into understated dresses that owe more than a nod to a young Grace Kelly or Tippi Hedren.
Such pared-down silhouettes cut with the precision of a master tailor have become her look, and it seems she's on to a winner.
'The clothes rarely reach the shop floor,' said a spokesman. 'Clients see the collection and put their names down in advance, so it's unusual to see the pieces merchandised in retail spaces - they're sold before they can get there.'
And that's despite the high price tags - an 'entry level' dress from the current collection costs £1,000, while prices for the more intricate gowns start at £4,000.
Floating along: The 'Cloud' frock in a blurred pixel print (left), silk crepe column dress in sapphire (centre), and a floor-length belted trench dress in lamé chiffon (right)
Why? These are grown-up clothes for sophisticated women - high-profile fans include Elle Macpherson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Hudson - and they cater for even the more voluptuous figures within the English sizes six to 14.
Like any designer at the helm of a burgeoning fashion business, Victoria employs a team to help translate her style into a commercial collection, but one of her design assistants said yesterday: 'From the shade of teal that's just so, to the weight of the lamÈ for the bodice of a dress, Victoria is in control every step of the way.'
Certainly, what Posh wants, she gets. While there are no plans for theatrical catwalk shows yet, her empire is slowly expanding, into sunglasses and denim
And with predicted sales of £7.5million in the next three years, it seems she is now a fashion force to be reckoned with.

After launching the collection at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent yesterday, Lott headed to Soho nightclub Movida to celebrate her new venture with her celebrity pals.
Among the stars in attendance was singer Jamelia, ex-EastEnders Kara Tointon and Louisa Lytton, Corrie actress Tina O'Brien and Strictly Come Dancing star Ali Bastian.
Lott said: 'The collection is very me and that's why it was great to do the two looks - festival and party - as I love festivals and I love going out.
'It's good for people looking for something to wear over the summer and for the weekends.'

To promote the shoot, the Mama Do singer flew to Spain last month to pose in her new designs.
She enthused: 'It was amazing to go to Marbella and be in the sunshine. I loved doing the festival stuff as the make-up was a bit crazy.
'I also love accessories, so we had fun with scarves and hats and I took a creative role in the way I looked.'
The new Spring/Summer collection is on sale now and will be followed by an autumn/winter capsule later this year.

Aimed at her young fans, the range will sell at an affordable £25-£75.
Aside from launching her fashion range, Lott has a busy summer coming up.
She's confirmed to perform at several festivals and gigs this year, including the Capital FM Summer Ball, T4 On The Beach and Radio 1's Big Weekend.
Lott is also hoping to spend some time in the U.S. trying to break the States.
Lott has been working with acts including Jason Derulo and Joe Jonas for her upcoming second album
Wild thing: Lott in the red leopard-print dress that she ended up wearing to the range's launch party
After she was recently spotted hanging out with the middle Jonas Brother in Los Angeles, the teen had to deny reports they are romantically involved.
She said: 'We're only working together. He's a great guy but nothing's happening at the moment. I'm still very much single.'
Jonas is currently dating his Camp Rock co-star Demi Lovato.

Tiger Woods' 'fling' with young neighbour is final straw for Elin Nordegren after golfer 'confesses to 120 affairs'
By David Gardner
Reflective: Tiger Woods during a news conference yesterday after the Quail Hollow Championship golf tournament in New York
Tiger Woods has confessed to cheating with as many as 120 women behind his wife’s back during their five-year marriage, it was claimed last night.
But a one-night stand with the 21-year-old daughter of a neighbour in Florida was the final straw for Elin Nordegren, according to the National Enquirer magazine in the U.S.
The Enquirer claimed the distraught mother-of-two decided to sign divorce papers after learning it was investigating Woods’ alleged fling with Raychel Coudriet, who he had reportedly known since she was just 14.
The scandal-plagued golfer was said to have listed all the women he bedded as part of his treatment for sex addiction at the Gentle Path rehab centre in Mississippi earlier this year.
These included former Playboy model Loredana Jolie Ferriolo and high paid escort Rachel Uchite.
But a source told the magazine that Woods left his young neighbour off the list.
After learning of the claim, a furious Ms Nordegren, 30, allegedly called Woods while he was having dinner with friends following his golf comeback at the U.S.
‘She was screaming so loudly that everyone at the table could hear what she was saying,’ a source told the magazine.
Woods’ estranged wife was quoted as saying: ‘This is the worst betrayal ever. I can’t believe you had sex with that girl in our own neighbourhood. That’s it – I’m divorcing you!’
Final straw: Tiger Woods with Elin Nordegren in 2004. He has reportedly confessed to 120 affairs
The Enquirer claimed the seduction happened last May just yards from where his wife was caring from their new-born baby.
Woods, 34, adamantly denied having a fling with Miss Goudriet, now a 22-year-old student at the University of Alabama.
Her father is a builder who constructed 17 homes in the upscale community where Woods lives in Isleworth near Orlando, Florida.
Lovers: Former Playboy model Loredana Jolie Ferriolo and high paid escort Rachel Uchitel were both linked to Tiger woods
An insider told the Enquirer Woods filled out four pages listing all the 120 women he had affairs with.
‘Elin has cut Tiger out of her life. She doesn’t believe anything he says now. The marriage is over,’ the source told the Enquirer.
Woods’ public fall from grace began in November 2009 after he crashed his car outside his Florida mansion.
The sporting idol took a break from golf following a string of revelations about his love life and checked into rehab to allegedly to be treated for sex addiction.
Jennifer Lopez comes all the way to London for The Back-Up Plan premiere... but the biggest star in attendance is Kerry Katona
By Daily Mail Reporter
High fashion: Jennifer Lopez looked chic in a Lanvin leather dress and Salvatore Ferragamo heels as she arrived at the London premiere of her film The Back-Up Plan
It is a sight most celebrity-watchers thought they'd never see - Jennifer Lopez sharing the red carpet with Kerry Katona.
In a case of A-list meets D-list, Katona appeared to be the most famous guest in attendance at Jennifer Lopez's film premiere in London's Leicester Square, which was besieged by Z-listers.
*** Scroll down to watch Video ***
While Katona looked svelte in a black jumpsuit and heels, she couldn't match up with the Hollywood glamour exuded by J-Lo.
The mother-of-twins, 40, showed off her curves in an asymmetrical leather Lanvin gown and a pair of black satin Salvatore Ferragamo heels, completing her look with a huge beehive.
Katona's arrival at the premiere marked the 29-year-old's first big media event since moving from Cheshire to Surrey last week.
While Lopez was in good company at her LA premiere last week with celebrity pal Heidi Klum, the London premiere attracted a host of reality TV stars.
Among those in attendance were Big Brother 8 twins Sam and Amanda Marchant, Love Island winner Bianca Gascoigne, X Factor runner-up Stacey Solomon and socialites Tamara Ecclestone and Hofit Golan.
Golan made sure she stood out from the crowd in a bizarre white and blue asymmetrical dress with flesh-baring panels cut out at the side
Back in the spotlight: Kerry Katona enjoyed being in the limelight in a black jumpsuit
Also at the Vue cinema was X Factor 2008 winner Alexandra Burke in a fishnet dress, TV presenter Jenni Falconer and classical boy band Blake.
Lopez has travelled from LA to New York to Paris to Madrid in the past week on her gruelling promotional tour for the new movie - her first big film role in three years - before arriving in London today.
She was joined by on-screen love interest Australian actor Alex O'Loughlin and director Alan Poul.
The film stars Lopez as pet store owner Zoe, who resorts to artificial insemination to get pregnant after failing to find the right man.

Screen stars: Lopez joined her Australian co-star Alex O'Loughlin and director Alan Poul
It's only after she finds out the IVF has been successful and that she is expecting that she meets handsome Stan (O'Loughlin), who may or may not be the man of her dreams.
The film reached an acceptable number two at the U.S. box office last weekend, but failed to beat No.1 How To Train Your Dragon, which was released four weeks ago.
The film has received more negative reviews than positive, but critics seem to be in universal agreement that Lopez looks stunning on screen.
Standing out: (L-R) Tamara Ecclestone looked very tanned in her purple mini-dress, Israeli socialite Hofit Golan flashed the flesh in an unusual dress, while TV presenter Jenni Falconer played it casual in jeans
Time magazine critic Mary Pols wrote: 'The actress who charmed in The Wedding Planner and held her own with George Clooney in Out Of Sight seems to have forgotten everything she ever knew about acting.
'The best that can be said about her is that she's game for some mortifying on-screen moments. But whether Zoe is having a pelvic exam or a spontaneous screaming orgasm brought on by kissing (supposedly generated by pregnancy hormones, but we're dubious), Lopez always looks more like she's posing for In Style than embodying a real woman.'
America's leading film critic Roger Ebert said: 'Jennifer Lopez has never looked better. That's about all she does here, is look better.'
Back to reality: (L-R) X Factor 2009 third-place Stacey Solomon, Love Island winner Bianca Gascoigne and X Factor 2008 winner Alexandra Burke
Speaking on the red carpet last night, Lopez said she told the director to include the less attractive elements of pregnancy in the movie.
She said: 'There's a couple of scenes in the movie where I'm eating and pigging out and they didn't put them in the first cut - I was like "Listen guys, this is extremely important for women."
'They need to see me pigging out. This is what happens when you get pregnant. You get really sleepy. You get really hungry. You get gas.'
• The Back-Up Plan is due for release in the UK on May 7.

Family support: Amy Winehouse with her father Mitch at his performance in London last night
Amy Winehouse made an extraordinarily speedy recovery after a trip to hospital at the weekend following a fall, to support her father Mitch at a performance last night.
The 26-year-old singer was taken to a private clinic in London's Harley Street over the weekend after taking a tumble at her north London home.
She suffered bruised ribs and cut her face above her eye in the fall, but showed she is back to full health as she attended an event with her father.
Back to black: Amy opted for a LBD (little black dress) for her night out
In a low cut black dress which highlighted her enhanced cleavage and her favourite ballet shoes, Amy was accompanied by goddaughter Dionne Bromfield at the Cahill gallery for the occasion.
Amy and Mitch performed September In The Rain and Fly Me To The Moon at the event in honour of human rights lawyer Julian Young.
Mitch, a former London taxi driver, decided to pursue a singing career after seeing the success of his daughter.
After spending months recording, his album Rush of Love, which contains covers as well as some of his own original songs, is due for release on June 7.
Uncle Mitch: She was joined by her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield
But the night had clearly finished too early for Amy, who then changed into a more casual outfit of a green polo t-shirt and jeans for a trip to Camden.
After a quick stop in The Good Mixer pub, Amy and her friend Tyler James then headed on to favourite drinking hole The Hawley Arms where they stayed until 11.30pm before returning home.
As they walked down the road to get a car home, Amy started talking to one over-eager fan who insisted on picking her up, before kissing her.
Quick change: Amy later wore a green t-shirt and jeans for a night trip to Camden
But the photograph is unlikely to please Amy's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who recently agreed to give their relationship another go.
However, while Amy and Blake seem to be thrilled with their reunion, some of Amy's friends and family, including Mitch, are less than impressed.
He told New! magazine: 'Amy and Blake are in contact again. I can't tell my daughter who to love and who not to love.
'If they decide to get back together again, it's going to be a relationship fraught with difficulties, which could be overcome, but it's up to them.'
Eager: One fan picks Amy up after she stops to talk to him in the street
Time to say goodbye: The man gives Amy a kiss before he heads off
The couple divorced last September, but within months were back together.
They attempted to keep their reunion secret from their families, friends and the media and managed to avoid being photographed together until last week.
The couple stunned their families when they married in Florida in May 2007, just weeks after getting together.

Surprise news: Sandra Bullock unveiled her adopted son Louis on the cover of America's People magazine
Sandra Bullock has shocked all of Hollywood by revealing she has an adopted son.
The Oscar-winning actress brought home baby Louis Bardo, now three and a half months old, in January prior to the breakdown of her marriage to Jesse James.
She is pictured with the child, who was born in New Orleans, on the cover of the latest issue of America's People magazine.
The 45-year-old and estranged husband James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago, according to the publication.
It's over: The actress confirmed she has filed for divorce from Jesse James, pictured here without his wedding ring on Monday
She is now adopting as a single parent.
Sandra also confirmed for the first time that she has filed for divorce from James.
Of her decision to end her five year marriage, she said: 'I'm sad and I am scared.'
The former couple initially decided to keep the news secret until after the Academy Awards, which saw her named best actress for The Blind Side.
Just days after March 7 ceremony, tattoo model Michelle 'Bombshell' McGee claimed she had an 11-month affair with James.
He apologised, conceding he had shown 'poor judgement'.
More allegations of infidelity followed and James subsequently checked into a treatment facility to address 'personal issues'.
James, who was spotted near his Huntington Beach home without his wedding ring on Monday, has three children - Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15.
He was previously married to a former porn star, Janine Lindemulder.

Day out: David and Victoria Beckham arrive at a clothing store in New York for a spot of shopping
Most men wouldn't enjoy going shopping with their wives.
But, then again, most men aren't David Beckham.
The footballer was seen accompanying wife Victoria on a shopping trip in Soho, New York, yesterday, after the pair flew into the U.S. city for a chat show appearance.
Svelte: Victoria wore a black dress from her own collection, accessorised with a black bolero and sparkly shoes
While Victoria dressed up for the occasion, in a dress from her own collection, David, 34, went for the casual approach, in a pair of jeans, jumper and beanie hat.
But there was one unfortunate addition to David's outfit - the black cast on his left foot he has been sporting since injuring his Achilles tendon in March.
However, David appeared unconcerned by his injury, and seemed happy to be enjoying a day out with his 36-year-old wife.
Injured: David opted for a casual outfit, but managed to coordinate his cast with his jumper and hat
After arriving at the store in New York, David accompanied Victoria as she tried on a variety of outfits including a grey jumper and silk harem trousers.
While the singer looked unconvinced by the trendy ensemble, it appears David may have convinced her to go ahead and buy it, as the star was later seen signing for her purchases.
It was the second consecutive day of shopping for Victoria, who wore a plunging top for a trip to the grocery store on Monday.
She later wore the outfit to visit Diane von Furstenberg's New York store.
Do you like it? Victoria tries on a grey t-shirt and silk harem trousers
Show me! An eager David waits outside the changing room
And it seems we won't be seeing any photographs of the pair shopping in London anytime soon, as David dismissed rumours of the pair moving back to England while on U.S. chatshow The View on Monday.
He told viewers: 'We hear that every week. We love England, it's where we was [sic] brought up, London is where we're both from, but this is a new phase of our life that we're really enjoying.
'We've lived in Los Angeles now for three years and we're so happy there.
'We're not going to be moving back at any time [soon].'
Score! Victoria goes ahead with a purchase from the clothing store
David also revealed that despite his injury meaning he won't be able to play in the upcoming World Cup this summer, he is enjoying spending time with Victoria and their three sons.
He said: 'I'm OK. It's not a nice one [injury] to do.
'I'll be out of action now for six to seven months, and then I'll be playing back in LA again.
'I'll be there [at the World Cup] with the team and support the team.
'Obviously it's frustrating but I get time to spend with the family.'
