Holden reveals her miscarriage sorrow

Have your say

Amanda Holden has spoken about the moment she was told she had miscarried a second child.

The Britain’s Got Talent star said she was “wailing” in the hospital when staff broke the news to her.

An obstetrician told her: “I’m terribly sorry, Amanda, but the baby’s heart is not beating. He’s gone.”

Holden tells the story in an extract from her autobiography No Holding Back which was published in the Mail on Sunday.

Speaking about the moments after she had been told what had happened, she said: “From somewhere in the hospital, I could hear the most horrendous screams.

“I presumed it was from
the labour ward until I realised I could hear my daughter’s name, ‘Lexi, Lexi, Lexi!’
being shouted out animalistically.

“It was me. It was me wailing and making the most horrific guttural noises.”
