But she lost out to British actress Rosamund Pike for the role of double agent Miranda Frost – who enjoyed a raunchy fling with 007.
A source who worked on the movie told the Mail On Sunday: “Amanda Holden auditioned for the role and was very good.
“But the producers wound up choosing Rosamund, who went on to become a massive movie star.
“I wonder if Amanda thinks about what might have been?
“She gets to sit alongside Simon Cowell but it’s not quite the same as getting to jump into bed with James Bond, is it?

“Amanda’s been very successful but every actress dreams of playing a Bond girl, and who knows where it might have taken her career?”
Confirming her audition, Heart radio presenter Amanda said: “I think it would be brilliant for Bond to have an equivalent female sidekick roughly the same age.
“I’m not sure how I’d fit a film into my schedule but I’d be more than happy to revisit Pinewood Studios and do a sword fight in my pants again!”
