42-year-old Amanda Holden has opened up about her painful past in the November issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.

Amanda has admitted that the dedication and support of NHS doctors and nurses helped her get through the tragic death of her son Theo in 2011, who was stillborn.

Now Amanda is telling her story in the hope that other women will benefit from her honesty and experience.

The Britain's Got Talent judge told the magazine, "When a nurse brushed my hair, I started crying - it was the most tender, loving thing after being bashed around so much."

She added, "That's why I'm so pro the NHS. The people in intensive care who looked after me were incredible."

Amanda also praised her devoted husband Chris Hughes who was by her side throughout the whole ordeal.

"Chris and I were very private and we grieved at night. We went to bed and we talked and talked. Chris never cried. I did all the crying.

"We called our son Theo. He was nearly 3lb, which is bigger than some babies in the prem ward."

Sadly, this wasn't the first time Amanda suffered pregnancy heartbreak. She had a miscarriage in 2010 and almost died in January 2012 while giving birth to her second daughter Hollie Rose.

Amanda revealed, "Hopefully someone will read this and take a bit of hope from it because there was a happy ending for me. A lot of women don't have that - I was very lucky."

After visiting a therapist to talk about her emotions and cope with the loss of her son, Amanda decided not to try for another child unless she could "know for sure there would be a successful outcome".

She added, "I know everyone loves their children but Hollie is the most loving thing. I tell everyone to have a baby. Forget your career - you can do it at the same time."
