Jimmy Carr makes brutal dig at Amanda Holden's 'new face'

Jimmy Carr makes brutal dig at Amanda Holden's 'new face'

They say people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, but that didn’t stop Jimmy Carr from taking a swing at Amanda Holden’s appearance on a recent episode of I Can See Your Voice.

Take a look at the brutal moment below:

The show, hosted by Paddy McGuinness, aired on Saturday (15 October) and saw a celebrity panel guess whether or not someone is a good singer based solely on their looks.

Carr and Holden are judges on the show, and both have been open about having had cosmetic work done in the past.

But that didn’t stop Carr from taking the chance to rip into Holden’s appearance, prompting fellow panellist Alison Hammond to snap at the comedian: “Jimmy!”

The moment unfolded when a woman wearing scrubs took to the stage and the panellists had to guess how solid a set of pipes she had.

Commenting on her appearance, Carr said: “You know, no scrubs. Would it be appropriate to take a moment to thank the doctors and nurses that have worked tirelessly over the last couple of years?”

He then quipped: “On Amanda’s new face…”

Ever the good sport, Holden burst into laughter and didn’t seem phased by his comment, but if we were her, we’d have fired back with a zinger of our own.

After all, according to The Sun, Carr admitted last year to having had not only a hair transplant procedure and veneers added, but also Botox. 

The star confessed: “I’ve gone a bit crazy with it, I’ve got the new teeth and the new hair – I’ve had a proper midlife crisis. Like, right, let’s get everything done.

“I’ve had a little bit of Botox, some filler – everything I can get done. My face is now like Trigger’s broom from Only Fools And Horses, very little of the original is still there.”

Meanwhile, Holden has spoken candidly about having Botox in the past, but The Mirror reports that she has ‘never’ gone under the knife.

Holden previously said: “Everybody knows that in the past, yes, I’ve talked about having Botox.

"I've not gone under the knife or had any injections. Since spending too much time in intensive care after nearly losing a baby, I've not gone under the knife or had any injections."

Holden also suffers from keloid skin, which makes cosmetic surgery a no-go.

The condition means that when skin injuries heal, a thick, raised scar is left over the wound site, and said scar is often even bigger than the original injury.
