Pregnant Amanda Holden has celebrated the end of her season on Shrek: The Musical, which she cut short to ensure the health of her unborn baby. The actress and Britain’s Got Talent star has been extra cautious during her pregnancy, after tragically suffering a stillbirth late last year.

Shrek and its cast were vital in helping Amanda recover from losing her baby, so she’s been preparing herself all week for the emotional goodbye.

“One more DAY! Shrek has been my life raft now I'm ready to cast away!” she tweeted.

Amanda’s last few performances have been all the more nerve wracking as she’s been watched by some of her celebrity friends, including fellow mummy Myleene Klass, who tweeted: “Outstanding performance @AmandaHolden So happy we saw your final show. Thank you for treating my clan xx.”

Amanda also performed to her 5-year-old daughter Lexi’s school class earlier in the week. “Lexi's whole class are watching today! It’s the most nervous I've ever been!!” she tweeted.

“Had a fantastic show!! 1 to go! I will be a mess of green tears tomorrow!!” she added.

Amanda is expecting a baby girl, but hasn’t announced her due date yet. She did let slip that she’s expecting her baby before her birthday in February, though, so she has a few months to take it easy and prepare.
