Amanda Holden is reportedly set to wave goodbye to the UK and set up home in the US.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge is said to be heading to Hollywood after putting her London property up for sale.
The Sun says that the 52-year-old star is being encouraged by Simon Cowell to make the move, and she has met with producers of America’s Got Talent in Los Angeles to discuss a possible switch.
Amanda has two daughters with record producer husband Chris Hughes – Lexi, 17, and Hollie, 11.
Model Lexi has been loooking at three universities in in LA, Boston and New York to attend from the next academic year, and The Sun says that Amanda is keen to help her settle in abroad.

A source told The Sun: “She’s been hanging out with Simon and his fiancee, Lauren, who have been encouraging her to make the move, and enjoy the sunshine and blue skies permanently.
“She even visited the set of America’s Got Talent, and sat alongside judges Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara.
“The producers absolutely loved her. She fitted in really well.
“The dynamic with the three women worked, and producers traditionally always have a Brit on the panel.
“Amanda’s had interest from a couple of top agents too, and it just feels like now could be the time to make the leap.”
The popular TV personality was recently involved in a Britain’s Got Talent pay row when she and fellow judge Alesha Dixon threatened to quit the ITV show if their salaries were not upped to trump that of newcomer Bruno Tonioli.
Amanda has formed a close friendship with Simon Cowell and has previously said that she was “eternally grateful” he took her on.
“Simon Cowell likes to say he made people like me and it’s true,” she said.
