Amanda Holden will officially make her return to the Britain's Got Talent judging panel this weekend, after a tumultuous few weeks that has seen her give birth to her second daughter Hollie Rose. The actress was in a "critical condition" following the birth, during which she suffered serious blood loss, and medical staff worked tirelessly to save her life, reports the UK's Sun newspaper.
However, after vowing to return to the talent show as-soon-as-possible, Amanda will join Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams at the Edinburgh auditions on Saturday (February 11, 2012), just days after American model Carmen Electra was announced as her short-term replacement for the London auditions. A spokesman for the show announced, "We're delighted to welcome Amanda back to the panel". Holden recently posted the first snap of Hollie Rose on Twitter, telling followers, "Thank you all for your wonderful messages. I am feeling fabulous! Hollie is amazing. Finally our family is complete!".
Though the actress was in good health throughout her most recent pregnancy, she has suffered difficulties in the past, and lost a child last year seven months into the pregnancy. She also suffered a miscarriage in 2010.
