Pregnant Amanda Holden left 'shaken' after car accident but she and unborn baby are 'fine'



Doing fine: Pregnant Amanda Holden is recovering after a car collision with a lorry today

Two weeks after announcing that she is pregnant again, Amanda Holden was taken to hospital yesterday following a road crash.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge – who lost an unborn child earlier this year – was driving when her car collided with a lorry.

Another driver took her to hospital where she was treated for cuts and bruises. Doctors told the three-months-pregnant star that the baby was ‘fine’.

Although she missed last night’s performance as Princess Fiona in the West End musical Shrek, she was hopeful of returning to the role tonight.

A source told the Sun: 'She was terrified the impact and the shock could have harmed her unborn child and left her third miscarriage in 18 months.

'She knew she had to get to hospital as soon as possible. She feels she's had an incredibly lucky escape.'

Miss Holden, 40, was seven months pregnant when she lost her unborn son in February.
She and her husband Chris Hughes, 38, also went through the ordeal of a miscarriage the previous year.

Last month she announced that she was expecting a girl and said she was certain there would be no tragedy this time.

‘I just know everything is going to be fine,’ she said. ‘Even Chris, who usually says “I hope so” when I ask for reassurance, now says, “I know so”.’

Miss Holden, who lives in Twickenham, south-west London, was en route to collect her daughter Lexi, five, from school yesterday afternoon when her car collided with the lorry.

A spokesman told the Mail: ‘Amanda was shaken and very concerned following the accident for her baby’s well-being.

However, a Good Samaritan took her to hospital and both she and the baby are fine.’
‘At the moment, she just feels hugely relieved.’
