Amanda Holden has been released from hospital to recuperate after the difficult birth of her second daughter. The Britain’s Got Talent judge checked herself into hospital last week with labour pains. It was later revealed she lost a large amount of blood during the caesarean birth, putting her life in danger.

Her baby girl, named Hollie Rose, was born safely on Monday 23rd but, according to Amanda’s agent, the new mum then spent three worrying nights in intensive care. Husband Chris Hughes announced Hollie’s birth on Wednesday and thanked hospital staff for saving his wife’s life.

“We are delighted to say that Amanda is now home,” said Alison Griffin, the couple’s spokesperson. “She and Chris would like to thank everyone who was involved in her care for their amazing skill and dedication, and also to thank everyone who sent such kind thoughts and wishes during this time.

“She is, of course, thrilled to be home with her family – Hollie is absolutely beautiful and Amanda and Chris are completely besotted with their two girls."
