Amanda's back on BGT after her baby trauma

Amanda Holden says she is "euphoric" about making her return to the judging panel of Britain's Got Talent little over a fortnight after she was in a critical condition in hospital.

The popular star will make her first public appearance today in Edinburgh following the birth of second child Hollie, which left her in intensive care.

Holden (40) was thought to be travelling up to Scotland last night after leaving her new baby briefly with her family to resume her role on the panel.

Holden is thought to have had a blood transfusion after a caesarean and was in a critical condition for three days.

She has been recovering at home in south west London with her husband Chris Hughes and their other daughter Lexi (6).

Holden said: "I am euphoric to be heading back to my place at the judges' desk -- to be honest after the last couple of weeks I'm euphoric to be anywhere. This is just a very fleeting visit to Scotland."

The actress and presenter was initially not replaced on the show, but this week US actress Carmen Electra temporarily joined regulars Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
