Amanda Holden is to return to work in April after tragically losing her baby son last month.

The 40-year-old 'Britain's Got Talent' judge - who lost her second child with husband Chris Hughes seven months into pregnancy - is reportedly "determined" to get through her heartbreak by starting rehearsals next month for her role as Princess Fiona in West End show 'Shrek'.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She is determined to get through this. She intends to throw herself into work and continue with the healing process."

Meanwhile, 'Britain's Got Talent' bosses are currently editing out shots of the actress - who has a five-year-old daughter Lexi with Chris - with a baby bump, so not to cause further upset when the audition phase of the ITV1 show hits screens next month.

Amanda recently spoke about the miscarriage she suffered in 2010, admitting the tragedy turned her into an "absolute mess".

She said: "I have such a charmed and lovely life and I just never imagined I would miscarry a baby. Never. You never think it might happen to you.

"Something went wrong. I certainly wasn't expecting anything to but sometimes Mother Nature lets you down. I was an absolute mess. Poor Chris was too but he was amazing."
