Amanda Holden breaks down in tears as she recalls devastating moment she gave birth to stillborn son Leo
Amanda Holden has opened up about the moment she gave birth to her stillborn son, Theo.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge spoke about the traumatic ordeal and how the NHS supported her seven years ago to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday.
Speaking to ITV’s Tonight programme, Amanda recalled: “I just remember hearing this woman just screaming and screaming and then it was actually — it was me, I realised it was me that was screaming.
“It was the most surreal, out-of-body experience and I was actually calling my daughter’s name because I was just terrified about what to tell Lexi at the time.”
An emotional Amanda continued: “He looked so normal and so peaceful.
“I held him in my arms and I said goodbye, basically.
“But I couldn’t have done it without the incredible team around us. My husband was so strong and so amazing but they got him through it too.
“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’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.”
The NHS Saved My Life airs tonight at 7:30pm on ITV.
