Who can toss their hair highest? Kelly Brook and Amanda Holden battle it out to be Britain's Got Talent's most glamorous judge

You could be forgiven for thinking they are in a competition, rather than judging one.

Kelly Brook and Amanda Holden had the hairdryers out and the high heels on this week - even though it was just a rehearsal for their show, Britain's Got Talent.

The pair, both judges on the ITV programme, seem to be vying for the title of prettiest on the panel.

Miss Holden, 37, wore a very short skirt by an Australian designer, Yeojin Bae, and a pair of skyscraper heels designed by singer Jessica Simpson.

Miss Brook chose a slashed black frock - and had given herself a full head of curls.

There has already been talk of rivalry between the pair, though model and presenter Miss Brook, 29, only joined the show on Monday.

'The rehearsals looked as if they had turned into a fashion show,' an onlooker said.

'Both Kelly and Amanda looked perfectly groomed. There was not a hair out of place.'

Miss Brook was brought in by judge Simon Cowell to sit alongside him, Piers Morgan and Miss Holden.

Her appointment is bound to draw comparisons to when Cowell signed Cheryl Cole as the fourth judge on the
X Factor.

Much was made of possible jealousy between the Girls Aloud singer, 25, and older judge Dannii Minogue, 37.

Miss Brook signed her contract late on Monday night just hours before she started filming.

ITV producers flew the brunette to Manchester on Tuesday morning to start work on the set, her agent confirmed.

A source told MailOnline former Strictly Come Dancing star Brook was 'excited' about her newest venture.

The model-turned-actress is no stranger to television - she's previously presented The Big Breakfast, Celebrity Love Island and, more recently, Dirty Dancing: The Time Of Your Life on Living TV.

Miss Holden also arrived in Manchester on Tuesday after returning from her honeymoon in the Maldives with Chris Hughes, who she married on December 10 at Babington house in Somerset.

The third series of Britain's Got Talent is due to air from May.

The winner will take home a £100,000 prize and the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

Britney Spears' latest CD "Circus" is the No. 1 album after selling half a million copies last week, according to the AP:

The singer's comeback CD — actually, make that her second comeback CD — will top the album charts next week, according to her label, Jive. Though Nielsen SoundScan does not release its official figures until Wednesday, estimates have the record selling as many as 500,000 copies in its first week of release. "This is going to reinforce her icon status," said Barry Weiss, chairman and CEO of the BMG Label Group, which includes Spears' label. "It's not just a No. 1 album."

Britney's handlers already have a two-month tour planned starting in March, but is she ready? Sources for OK! Magazine say "Are you shitting me?":

"It is too much for her," an insider tells OK! of the star. "They packed her schedule too tight and now they're trying to find free time."
"She has the talent and the musical chops top pull it off, emotionally speaking, it's a little too soon," psychotherapist Dr. Jenn Berman, who does not treat Britney, tells OK!. "I don't think Britney will hit rock bottom, but it does leave her vulnerable to stress and burnout."

We're going to hear the "Is Britney ready to tour?" narrative ad nauseum until the thing launches in March, so let me just answer it definitively once and for all: HELL FUCKING NO. Unless, of course, the point of the tour is to make Britney think she's Mary Poppins again then be found days later using her children as boxing gloves in an underground cock fight. In which case, okay, yeah, start the bus.
