Pregnant Amanda 'achy' after crash

Pregnant Amanda Holden has told how her baby is "perfect" and unaffected by the crash which left her car a write-off.

The Britain's Got Talent judge, who was in a collision with a lorry in west London on the school run, said her own health is fine - but she is still "achy" and in shock.

And she joked that her husband Chris Hughes is considering buying a tank for future road trips.

Holden, 40, was heading to collect daughter Lexi, five, on Wednesday afternoon. Following the crash, she was taken to hospital for a check-up by a passing "Good Samaritan".

She reassured fans that all is well with a message on Twitter.

"Don't worry. Baby is perfect. I am ok - achy and shocked. Car totalled," Holden said.

And she posted a link to a picture of a military tank saying record producer Hughes had "put a deposit down" on it.

Holden pulled out of Wednesday night's performance of West End hit Shrek The Musical - in which she plays Princess Fiona.

She announced a fortnight ago that she is pregnant.

She lost a baby earlier this year seven months into the pregnancy and also went through the ordeal of a miscarriage the previous year.
