Amanda Holden reveals she DIED for 40 seconds before falling into a coma during traumatic birth of daughter Hollie – The Sun

AMANDA Holden has revealed she died for 40 seconds before falling into a coma during the traumatic birth of her daughter Hollie.

Speaking on her Heart Breakfast radio show today, the Britain’s Got Talent judge credited the NHS for saving her life.

Amanda, 49, said: “When I gave birth to Holly, my 8 year old daughter who I know is listening, she was an emergency and I haemorrhaged basically.

“I actually did pass away for 40 seconds and then I went into a coma but the NHS were there holding my hand and my husband’s hand who – I feel sorry for him to be honest, he went through it watching it all!”

Amanda – who has released her own charity single ‘Over the Rainbow’, which will raise funds for NHS Charities Together – went on to talk about the other times the NHS has helped both her and her family.

She continued: “My sister had a car crash three years ago and experienced a brain injury, she’s fully recovered but they were there for that.

“And then of course it’s been well documented that Chris and I had a child, a little boy called Theo who was born sleeping at an NHS hospital and again, they were incredible to us, we couldn’t have gotten through without them.”

Amanda gave birth to her stillborn son with husband Chris Hughes in 2011.

In 2018, the TV star gave an emotional interview about her experience to mark 70 years since the creation of the NHS.

“I’ll literally do anything for the National Health Service because they got me through it, they got Chris through it and I now thankfully have two healthy girls and a little boy who is still part of the family but just not here," she said.

“And then the days and months afterwards, the same team of people checked on us every single day and it’s not because I’m off the telly or famous or anything like that.

“I believe they’d have extended that care to any woman, any family, in my situation.”

Tune into Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden, weekdays from 6:30am – 10am.

In another snap, the BGT judge is joined by showbiz correspondent Ashley Roberts, who is fanning herself with cue cards.

The star is among the dozen of famous faces backing the "clap for our carers" campaign amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The cause has now been shared across several influential social media accounts, with the NHS logo emblazoned across the post alongside the hashtag #ClapForOurCarers and a link to the official website,

The campaign is encouraging everyone to give an ovation to frontline health staff – whether it is from their living rooms, front doors or gardens – at 8pm tonight.

Amanda has been forced to present her Heart radio show from home in recent days due to the deadly bug.

Posting a cute photo of herself in pyjamas, the host said: "Like so many of you I’m working @thisisheart from #home today to make sure we have the tech to keep you company throughout this trying time! #breakfast."

The mother-of-two also gave her fans an insight into the challenges of working in unfamiliar surroundings, as she hilariously struggled to put her headphones on.
