Amanda Holden expecting second baby

Britain's Got Talent presenter Amanda Holden is expecting her second child, her publicist has confirmed.

The reality TV judge and husband Chris Hughes are expecting their second baby in March and are said to be "absolutely thrilled".

"They say they cannot wait to welcome the new addition to their family," said publicist Alison Griffin.

Ms Holden's pregnancy will not affect her role as a judge on Britain's Got Talent, and she does not plan on taking any time off from work when the baby is born.

"She's very well. She's feeling great. She's very happy," Ms Griffin said.

The actor-presenter will later this year appear as Princess Fiona in the stage musical Shrek, which previews at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in May. She gave birth to her first child, a girl, Lexi, four years ago.

Ms Holden will start judging the new series of Britain's Got Talent on Tuesday, with auditions finishing at the end of the month.

Producers of Shrek are allowing her to re-schedule rehearsals.

The musical's producer, Caro Newling of Neal Street Productions, said: "Knowing how much this means to Amanda and her family, we're thrilled that we have been able to re-schedule rehearsals to allow her the time she needs without denying the public the opportunity to see her on stage."

She will appear alongside Nigel Lindsay (Shrek), Nigel Harman (Lord Farquaad) and Richard Blackwood (Donkey) when Shrek The Musical starts performances at Drury Lane in May.
