Writing autobiography has helped with the grief of losing baby, says Amanda Holden

HAMPSHIRE’S Britain’s Got Talent star Amanda Holden has revealed how writing her autobiography has helped her overcome her miscarriage heartbreak.
The television judge, who grew up in Bishop’s Waltham, spoke of how reliving the agony of losing a baby finally allowed her to let go of the crippling grief she has been living with.
The former Cutting It star was left heartbroken when she lost a baby boy seven months into her pregnancy in 2011 – less than a year after suffering a miscarriage at four months.
But by revisiting those devastating moments as she wrote her autobiography, No Holding Back – My Story, which comes out next month, the 42-year-old said she was able to release some of the pain she had stored up over the last two years.
The mum-of-two said: “I wanted to include the awful stuff I went through so I put it all in. I think it can help people if I talk about it.
“There are 17 stillbirths every day. And I think it will be good for people to hear my story if they have gone through that.
“Going over it all, you exorcise a lot of stuff. I definitely did. I’ve been able to put a lot of it to bed.”
