Amanda Holden praises the NHS who 'saved her life' and 'got her through' ...

On Friday morning, she gave the first ever radio play of her newly released charity single Over the Rainbow which help raise money for NHS Charities Together, during the current COVID-19 crisis.

And, in an emotional moment Amanda Holden, 49, insisted that she 'owes the National Health Service her life' while chatting to co-host Jamie Theakston, also 49, on Heart Breakfast.

The Britain's Got Talent judge recounted how she 'died for 40 seconds' while giving birth to daughter Hollie, 8, in 2012 as she praised the NHS for 'getting her through' stillbirth of son Theo in 2011.

Amanda and husband Chris Hughes have been married since 2008 and are parents to daughters Alexa, 14, and Hollie. 

A tearful Amanda told listeners that the NHS saved her life when she haemorrhaged during Hollie's birth and 'actually did pass away for 40 seconds' before going into a coma.

She explained how they were there for her sister when she sustained a brain injury during a car crash, and that they were incredibly supportive to her family when she had a little boy who was stillborn.

After playing Amanda's charity single to the nation for the first time ever, Amanda's Heart Breakfast co-host Jamie Theakston told her 'I'm getting a bit emotional, I'm so proud of you. What an amazing thing to do!'
