Amanda looked happy and healthy as she made her way to the auditions
Amanda Holden, who gave birth to her second daughter Hollie two weeks ago, was back at work on Britain’s Got Talent at the weekend.
“I am euphoric to be heading back to my place at the judges desk – to be honest after the last couple of weeks I’m euphoric to be anywhere,” Amanda, said, reports the Daily Mail.
Amanda headed up to Edinburgh without baby Hollie for the next round of auditions.
“This is just a very fleeting visit to Scotland and with the weather being so extreme I’ve decided to let my mum have some quality time with her new granddaughter – but I am looking forward to introducing Hollie to everyone on my next trip,” Amanda said.
Amanda, 40, has been absent from the show after checking herself to hospital with labour pains. She gave birth via emergency caesarean to a healthy baby girl, but lost a huge amount of blood and spent three days in intensive care fighting for her life.
She was given a hero’s welcome on her return and presented with a huge cuddly teddy bear by Simon Cowell, who tweeted, “Great to be back in Scotland @GotTalent, I'm back with my little @Amanda_Holden.”
And Amanda’s not the only new parent in the cast. A BGT soundman has thanked Simon Cowell for helping him get home from Edinburgh in time for the birth of his first child.
Cameraman John Hagenstede was shocked to receive a phone call from his pregnant girlfriend saying she’d gone into labour nine days early. He didn’t stand a chance of getting back to the Surrey hospital in time, so Simon invited him to fly back to London on the judges’ private jet and even arranged for him to be whisked off by a private car to the hospital as soon as they landed.
“I got there with just moments to spare,” John said. “If I’d have got there 10 minutes later I’d have missed the birth of my son.”
Aww, Simon, who’d have thought you had it in you?
