Amanda, 50, channelled her inner Disney monarch as she transformed into Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, while co-stars Ashley and Jamie Theakston became Alice and The Mad Hatter respectively.

Putting on a leggy display, the Britain’s Got Talent judge wore a card-inspired dress, complete with a dramatic collar and dipped hemline.

The mother-of-two boosted her figure in black ankle boots, while a spiked crown served as her key accessory.

Amanda maintained the red theme by sporting classic lipstick and drew a small black heart underneath her left eye.

Strutting down the Global Studios office, the former actress served herself some tea as she emulated the fictional character, who was played by Helena Bonham Carter in Tim Burton’s 2010 live action film.

Meanwhile Pussycat Doll Ashley looked elegant in the protagonist’s classic pinafore as she posed with a warm beverage for the playful images. 

World Book Day has been observed on the first Thursday in March since 1995 in the UK.

A set of books are released for £1 each year, with Tom Fletcher’s There’s a Wolf in Your Book and Luna Loves World Book Day written by Joseph Coelho leading this year’s line-up.
