Amanda Holden has spoken out to silence those who’ve criticised her for returning to work just weeks after the traumatic birth of her second child Hollie.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge was back on the panel less than three weeks after she nearly died from blood loss after giving birth to her baby girl, but Amanda argues that returning to work helps her get back to normal.
"Going back to work when I did is how I deal with things. I always face life head on. I wanted to get back,” she tells The Sun.
"It was important that I did something normal and show my six-year-old daughter Lexi that I was still the same old mum,” continues the TV judge, “She came home one day and I was still in my pyjamas. She said, 'I wish I could be in my pyjamas'. And then I thought, I'm never wearing my pyjamas all day again.
"So I did my hair no matter how I was feeling and I came down in the morning. I had to put breakfast on the table when I was feeling like a zombie. But it made me stronger and I was determined to get back to work as soon as I physically could."
Amanda, we're just happy to hear you and baby Hollie are healthy and happy.
If Simon Cowell’s relationship with fiancé Mezhgan Hussainy is all over, his friend Zeta Graff reckons she knows why.
The diamond heiress – who was seen frolicking with Simon on his yacht earlier this year – says that Mezhgan is too clingy for Simon,
“Mezhgan was lovely but it was all too much for Simon. As soon as he hears the words ‘stability’ and ‘future’, I think it all became a bit too much,” Zeta tells The Mirror.
“Simon needs a woman who isn’t defined by him, who has her own career or wealth. Someone who doesn’t depend on him. But he and Mezhgan are still friends.”
Do you think Simon will ever settle down?
We want to give David Walliams a little hug this morning. The Little Britain comedian has admitted that he does his various crazy charity challenges because he doesn’t like himself very much!
“When I swam the Channel, Rob Brydon texted me: 'You're still fundamentally a bad person.' He knows exactly how to push my buttons,” David tells the Radio Times.
“Those kinds of things are set off in childhood, aren't they? I mean, I still enjoy my life, and I feel like I've achieved enough things that if I never did anything again, I'd feel confident that I'd still have made my mark in some way.
"But maybe the self-loathing bit is the element that makes you strive for more. Makes you strive to be better."
Awww, we love you David!
