Misoginistic influencer Andrew Tate has taken a cruel swipe at TV star Amanda Holden after she posted a bikini-clad snap from her recent getaway.
The Heart FM presenter, 52, tweeted a racy image of herself enjoying a poolside shower in a sexy black two-piece, igniting a vile response from the former Big Brother contestant, dubbed ‘the king of toxic masculinity’.
Andrew, 36, is currently under house arrest in Bucharest over sex trafficking charges with his brother Tristan after being arrested by Romanian authorities in December.
Replying to Amanda’s tweet featuring her snap, Tate wrote: ‘You are a wife and a mother and you’re far past a teenager. There is no need for this post.’
Amanda is yet to publicly respond to Tate’s post.

Really? Amanda’s post ignited the vile response from Andrew, who claimed there was ‘no need’ for her to share the image
The Britain’s Got Talent judge has been eagerly documenting her sunny getaway with her husband Chris Hughes.
Just two days before her sizzling snap, she posted another bikini-clad image to once again flaunt her incredible frame and flawless assets.
She showed off her incredible figure in a skimpy blue two-piece as she lounged on the back of a boat and looked out at the sea views.
Amanda wed her music producer husband Chris in 2008 and the happy couple share daughters Lexi, 17 and Hollie, 11.
Leaked messages have demonstrated how alleged sex trafficker Andrew Tate (left with his brother, Tristan) coerced women into doing sex work for him, according to a report
Last week, it was reported that leaked messages have demonstrated how Tate coerced women into doing sex work for him, according to a new report.
When the influencer was arrested in Romania in December, authorities accused him of using the ‘loverboy’ method to lure woman to his compound in Bucharest under the guise of having a relationship, before forcing them to do sex work.
According to Rolling Stone, citing screenshots of purported messages from the ‘War Room’ (Tate’s groupchat with his followers) and other texts in 2021, Tate described women as ‘targets’ and ‘assets’ and spoke of isolating and manipulating them.
In one message, the misogynist described how he isolated one woman until she ‘lost her support networks at home’ and kept her at the compound in Bucharest.
‘The real goal is for her to agree to never go anywhere without me. Not even her home town. I need her working,’ he wrote, according to screenshots.

Tate, who is currently under house arrest, also appeared to seek help from his associates to force one woman to post sexually explicit content on OnlyFans, an internet content subscription platform used mostly by sex workers.
In the message, Tate tells followers he’ll be ‘making the play tonight’.
‘Since she moved [to Bucharest] she’s been fed. But nothing else,’ he wrote.
‘She’s broke. And she can’t go home. And she can’t leave the house. Man, I sound almost evil,’ he added according to the leaked messages.

Tate has denied the trafficking and rape charges that have been levelled against him and his brother, Tristan, by the Romanian agency DIICOT.
DIICOT alleges that Tate, his brother Tristan and two Romanian women – Luana Radu and Georgiana Naghel – formed a criminal group in 2021 ‘to commit the crime of human trafficking’ in Romania, as well as in the United States and Britain.
There are seven female victims in the case, DIICOT said, who were lured with false pretenses of love and transported to Romania, where the gang sexually exploited them and subjected them to physical violence.
One defendant is accused of raping a woman twice in March 2022, according to the agency. The women were allegedly controlled by ‘intimidation, constant surveillance’ and claims they were in debt, prosecutors said.

Last week, a Romanian court ruled to extend the house arrest of the Tates.
The July 18 decision at the Bucharest Tribunal comes a month after prosecutors formally indicted the 36-year-old former Big Brother contestant along with his brother Tristan and two Romanian women in the same case.
The decision means all four defendants – who were arrested in late December near Bucharest – will remain under house arrest for 30 more days.
Outside the court on Monday, Tate told journalists ‘the moral arc of the universe bends towards justice in the end’.
‘My brother and I are extremely resilient people. In the end justice shall be served,’ he said. ‘We’re feeling like things are going to work out perfectly in the end — and until then we’re going to follow the judicial process.’
The Tates lost their last appeal on July 6 against a prior house arrest extension.
After spending three months in police detention in Bucharest, the Tate brothers won an appeal on March 31 to be moved to house arrest.
Tate, who has been accused of peddling conspiracy theories online and has amassed 7.2million Twitter followers, has repeatedly claimed prosecutors have no evidence against him and there is a political conspiracy designed to silence him.
Before the court’s decision on Tuesday, a post appeared on his Twitter account saying: ‘There are Matrix agents on all sides of the political spectrum. War is funded. Trump and I are self funded. Basically everyone else is bought and paid for.’
Andrew Tate was previously banned from various prominent social media platforms for expressing hate speech and misogynistic comments, including that women should bear responsibility for getting sexually assaulted.
Several women in Britain are also pursuing civil claims to obtain damages from Tate, alleging they were victims of sexual violence.
