Amanda Holden EXC: Star poses in a ruffled black dress from photoshoot for her new song


Amanda Holden posed for a photoshoot for her new track, With You, dedicated to her stillborn son Theo.

In images exclusively obtained by MailOnline, the Heart FM host, 49, stunned in a ruffled black dress as she took images in the woods to promote her album Songs From My Heart, set for release on Friday. 

The presenter shed light on the message behind her single, admitting her late child’s death in 2011 ‘changed her as a person’ and credited her husband Chris Hughes for ‘staying strong’ when she ‘fell apart’.

The media personality said: ‘The last lines of this song are ”You took my life with you, Took my world with you” and so this is for Theo, our baby who was born sleeping and for Chris who stayed strong when I fell apart. 

‘It was Chris who told me he always thought of Theo when he heard this song which floored me so it’s also his song for Theo. 

‘It’s very emotional to sing this song but I think you get chosen for experiences like that only if you are strong enough to deal with it. And it changes you as a person. It is also Simon Cowell’s favourite song.’

The mother-of-two was first inspired to record an album after she and her daughters Lexi, 14, and Hollie, eight, recorded a cover of The Greatest Showman hit Tightrope for her husband Chris Hughes to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.

In July, Amanda spoke candidly about the devastating moment she learned there was no heartbeat when she was pregnant with her baby son.

Speaking on BBC’s Dear NHS Superstars special, the TV star explained she chose to have a C-section and initially thought she would not be able to hold her baby after he was born.

She said: ‘I kept saying, “I can’t hold a dead baby.” I was absolutely terrified. Just as baby was going to come out my husband Chris had to leave the room, he couldn’t bear it.

‘Jackie [her midwife] wrapped him up and I said, “Jackie, I can’t do it, I can’t hold him.” Jackie said, “he’s absolutely gorgeous, you need to see him.”

During the fourth semi-final, Amanda wowed in a showstopping metallic navy gown, but at the time some fans questioned if she had suffered a wardrobe malfunction after they claimed to ‘see her nipples’.

According to a report from The Mirror on Monday, the regulator received 277 complaints about the programme, with the majority focusing on her ensemble which featured a plunging neckline.

One wrote on social media: ‘Is it me or Amanda’s nipples nearly hanging out of her top?’, while a second asked, ‘Are Amanda’s nipples on show?’

Another shared on Twitter, ‘Just me, or does Amanda’s dress make it look like her nipples are out?’, before adding: ‘To be clear… I’m not offended just commented on the obvious nipple shadow.’

Clearly shocked, one viewer wrote: ‘Is it me or can you see Amanda’s nipples?’ 

MailOnline has contacted Ofcom, as well as Amanda’s representatives and a Britain’s Got Talent spokesperson for comment.

This is not the first time Amanda’s ensembles have caused a stir, as last year her raunchy ensembles sparked hundreds of complaints from viewers who thought they were too revealing for a family show.

Amanda made an impression in thigh-skimming gown by Ziad Nakad, showing off a liberal amount of leg thanks to the asymmetric hemline.

While the blonde beauty had also risked a wardrobe malfunction in a cut-out number by Jennifer Clair.

The stunning jewel hued frock featured a cut-out at the bust, threatening to expose her cleavage, as well as a high-high split running up her right leg.

She then dared to bare in the revealing, spider web number which attracted the Ofcom complaints.

While the next night she revealed her ample cleavage in a plunging, midnight blue gown, adorned with white floral detail and sequins. 

Despite the controversy over her looks, Amanda told You magazine at the time that she was delighted her remarkable figure still attracts attention: ‘I love it that people are still talking about my tired old breasts and I’m nearly 50!’

She added: ‘No one talks about [BGT co-host] Alesha Dixon’s – she’s got great boobs by the way – and she’s eight years younger than me.

‘Age is totally irrelevant, thanks to people like J-Lo, who is 49 and just a sexy, hot woman who dresses for how she feels.’
