Amanda Holden revealed earlier this month that after his tragic death, he had planted palm trees to remember Sir Tom Moore.
British judge Got Talent Amanda, 50, posed next to a big tree on Instagram photos and shared it with 1.7 million followers.
While standing in the garden in the photo, when she was leaning against a large plant, Amanda revealed that he had planted it in honor of the late NHS and wartime hero, who was 100 years old when he died.
She said in the caption “Planting this #palm in honor of @captainsirtom” that her followers were followed by a red heart emoji.

Touching emotions received over 19,000 likes from fans, and many shared their emotions through comments.
One said: “Wow! And for another person, he added, it’s a really cool idea. A series of heart emoticons with “Omg what a nice gesture”.
The third wrote, “It looks beautiful, but I’m sure he’ll love it, and I want him to be that strong.”
Amanda was lucky enough to interview Captain Sir Tom last year with her Herat Radio Breakfast co-host Jamie Theakston.
In an interview, while Sir Tom starred through a video link, he said, “I enjoy talking to you. You are both laughing people.”
At the news of the 100-year-old death, Amanda paid tribute to him at Good Morning Britain.
She said: “On my Instagram he was a real lighthouse in the real darkness and he brought us all together and reminded us of how amazing, strong and ascetic generation he was. An example for all of us.
“I am always incredibly sad. Piers (Morgan), I know you were close to Grandma, I was mine, I saw Tom going, and I take it very personally. Because I think I am another member of that generation. We lost. We will never see their sense of humor and fortitude again. I do not believe.”
She added: “We are really happy to celebrate his strength and legacy, but because his sense of humor is very British. I think none of us would go through anything without that kind of humor. You wouldn’t have suffered any war. We wouldn’t have had this terrible plague, but I think it’s a sense of humor and his selflessness.”
Sir Tom’s family recently announced that his funeral would be held this weekend, but urged mourners to stay home amid the plague.
A statement from the veterans family, released earlier this week, reads: “Over the past year, my dad has spoken publicly about his death and funeral, and over the past 12 months I have been very curious about whether he is interested in him. Need more Victorian sponge cake for additional guests.
“Sadly like many other families affected by the epidemic, we have no choice but to hold a small family funeral that will take place this Saturday. I understand that many want to pay homage to my father, but the public and the media are encouraged to stay home and continue supporting the NHS.”
