AMANDA Holden whisked her teenage lookalike daughter Alexa to Paris over the weekend – before she returned to the UK to slam This Morning host Phillip Schofield for refusing to make-up with her amid their shock feud.
Amanda, 48, enjoyed the sights of the French capital with the pretty 13-year-old in light of The Sun’s reveal this weekend about her clash with the This Morning host.
Posting an Insta picture of her daughter, who she calls Lexi, in front of the Eiffel Tower, she captioned it: “Bon soir enjoying a rare wkd with Lexi all to myself… cue evil laugh #Paris.”
They also visited Château de Versailles and in another snap at the Louvre, she wrote: “La culture, innit #Paris time with my teenager.”

The pair spent another evening at the Moulin Rouge, with Amanda having fun as she posed with the stunning male and female dancers at the famous venue on Saturday night.
Lexi’s dad is Amanda’s record producer husband Chris Hughes, who Amanda also shares daughter Hollie, seven, with.
Their trip came as the Sun on Sunday revealed that Amanda, 48, complained to ITV boss Kevin Lygo after 57-year-old Phillip “actively blocked her” from landing a plum This Morning job.
Philip last night tweeted that he’s had “another sad weekend” – also claiming that he tries to be “easy and fun” to work with.

He told his followers: “The end of another really sad weekend.”
He added that he had tried to be “the easiest, most fun person to work with” throughout his 35-year career, concluding that he will “take it on the chin”.
On Saturday, Phil shared fun videos to his Instagram Story that showed him enjoying a family birthday party.
On Sunday, we revealed that Amanda raised her concerns to a top ITV boss after she was blocked from a job as Phil’s co-host while Holly Willoughby was in Australia filming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

A former daytime TV executive told us: “Phillip actively campaigned for Rochelle Humes to get the job despite Amanda being more experienced — and having been told privately she’d got the gig.
“She feels Phil unfairly used his powers of persuasion. She was told he’d chosen Rochelle because she was easier to ‘manage’ on air – and understandably that incensed her.”
Philip has said the allegation is “untrue.”
This April, another female star went to bosses over Phillip’s “unreasonable actions” following an on-air clash.
We also revealed that Phil pitched for Ant McPartlin’s job on I’m A Celeb but was overlooked.
This month Amanda was asked on her Heart FM show what three things she wouldn’t like to find in her home. She replied: “Spiders, flies and Phillip Schofield.”
