Amanda Holden wants to ‘let fans in’ with song about stillborn son

Amanda Holden has revealed she wants to "let fans in" with her new single, With You.

The popular Britain's Got Talent judge shared the song has a special meaning for her and her husband, Chris, as it reminds them of the son they lost nine years ago.

Amanda gave birth to her second child two months prematurely after being told there was no heartbeat.

Son Theo Hughes was stillborn on February 1, 2011.

Amanda opened up about the tragedy in the BBC's Dear NHS Superstars special, where she said she "heard this guttural screaming" after learning her baby had no heartbeat.

She said: "It was the most bizarre thing that's ever happened to me because it was me.

"I didn't know I was doing it – I had no control over myself, I thought it was another person making the noise."

The drama school graduate, whose career in the entertainment industry has spanned more than 25 years and seen her step into roles as a TV presenter, talent show judge, occasional actress and a singer, has recently ramped up her music career.
