Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has traveled to the Ukrainian border to interview people whose lives have been devoured by the conflict.

Heart FM host 51 has a podcast where she plans to share the story of those affected by Putin’s invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago, which has seen families torn apart and fled their homes.

Amanda, a mother of two, is in a refugee camp in Medyka, Poland, near Ukraine.

The subway reports that the TV personality has welcomed the sense of community she saw as donations continued to pour in.

She said: “I’m literally watching people seep in from across the border.

“It’s extraordinary to see how quickly people have come together. There’s a whole village here.”

The actress said she’s seen items from Asda and Tesco, adding: “It’s amazing where this is all coming from. People serve tea and coffee and hot food.”

She continued, reports The Metro: “Everything has been thought through. There are even dog leashes and bowls and toys for children. There is nothing that has not been thought of.”

The West End musical star posted a series of pictures and videos on her Insta story of her trip.

A moving clip showed people queuing to return to a town in Ukraine to help residents after bombs were dropped.

Another showed someone playing the piano, with rubble and mountains of donations in the background.

She also posted a picture of Bristol charity members and slammed the UK government, saying: “This small charity is trying to make a big difference despite our government’s ridiculous bureaucracy.”

The British government was heavily criticized during the conflict for bureaucracy that slowed down the process for refugees trying to enter Britain.

The mother started the podcast, titled Ukraine’s Hidden Voices, after being contacted on social media by a Ukrainian mother who was taking refuge in an underground car park.

Speaking about why she started the podcast, Amanda said, “I wanted to use this podcast to talk to mums, dads, sons and daughters about what’s happening on the ground in Ukraine.

“It is important at this point that we do not turn away, but reach out to them and hear their stories and try to help in any way we can. Your stories are so important.”

Amanda isn’t the only celebrity drawn into action by the devastating scenes in Ukraine. Hollywood couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds announced last month that they would match donations of up to $1 million to help refugees escape.
