Amanda's husband thanks medics

Amanda Holden's husband Chris Hughes has thanked the medics who helped her

Amanda Holden's husband has told of his gratitude to medical staff who brought the Britain's Got Talent judge back from the brink.

Amanda, 40, gave birth to her second child on Monday but spent three days in a critical condition.

The actress is now stable after being treated in an intensive care unit but is expected to take a while to recover. Chris Hughes, married to Amanda since 2008, has been with her since she was admitted to hospital on Monday morning and is indebted to the medical team.

A spokeswoman for the couple said: "Chris would like to thank all the medical staff and everyone who has been involved in Amanda's care."

Her new daughter, Hollie Rose Hughes who weighed in at just over 6lbs, is said to be healthy. No details of 40-year-old Amanda's condition have been released, but she is expected to make a full recovery.

The TV favourite, who was due to be on the BGT panel at auditions this week, already has a daughter, Lexi. But complications during that pregnancy with a low lying placenta meant she gave birth by Caesarean section.

The couple's spokeswoman said: "Until Amanda is in a position to indicate what she wants to say, there's no more information I can give."

She is thought to have suffered considerable blood loss - one of the most common complications during childbirth - which would necessitate a transfusion.

You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
