Los Angeles: Amanda Holden fought back tears while appearing on Lorraine on Friday when she revealed her new single reminds husband Chris Hughes of their stillborn son, Theo.
The TV star debuted her the song, With You, from the musical Ghost on YouTube on Thursday and Chris said it brought back memories of losing Theo back in 2011.
Amanda, said: ‘It’s a song about grief and loss. It’s a very moving song. My whole album means so much for me.
‘I sing it a lot. My whole album in fact is about songs that mean so much to me and my family. It was my husband Chris who absolutely floored me one day when I was singing.
‘He said, “The last two lines of that song really remind me of how we felt when we lost Theo” – who was our lovely little boy who was born sleeping. The last two lines are, “you took my world away, you took my life away”.’
Amanda continued: ‘Chris is a typically stoic man who was very supportive of me and our girl Lexie when it all happened and never took time for himself.
‘So for him to come out with that sentence, it just floored me. That’s the first single we thought to release – very emotional.’
In a video shared on the show, Amanda exuded glamour as she performed on stage in an empty theatre wearing a sequinned gown, before walking through woodland.
Amanda looked visibly emotional as she walked through a forest in a black tulle pleated gown.
At one point the West End star threw her hands out as she belted out the moving lyrics.
With You comes from Amanda’s debut album Songs From My Heart, which feature an array of musical theatre tracks.
