Amanda Holden is "euphoric" to be returning to the 'Britain's Got Talent' judging panel for the Edinburgh stage of the auditions
Amanda Holden has returned to the 'Britain's Got Talent' judging panel.
The 40-year-old star - who spent three days in critical condition in hospital after giving birth to her daughter Hollie Rose via an emergency caesarean section late last month - is "euphoric" to be resuming her place on the ITV1 show for the Edinburgh auditions today (11.02.12).
She told The Sun newspaper: "I'm euphoric to be heading back to the judges' desk. To be honest, after the last couple of weeks I'm euphoric to be anywhere!"
Amanda had previously admitted she was keen to bring baby Hollie along to the auditions with her, but she was forced to change her mind due to the snowy conditions currently hitting the UK.
She said: "With the weather being so extreme I'm letting my mum have some quality time with her granddaughter. But I'm looking forward to introducing her to everyone on my next trip."
Amanda - who is joined on the 'BGT' panel by Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon - was replaced by Carmen Electra at the London stage of the auditions, but the former 'Baywatch' babe was met with boos from the crowd and calls for Amanda to return.
A source said: "It's fair to say everyone's glad Amanda is returning."
