Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden is stable after being delivered of a baby girl on Monday morning. Although she was in the intensive care unit of a hospital, details of 40-year-old Holden's recovery have not been made public, but she is expected to make full recovery, according to reports.

The actress, who had been due to be on the Britain's Got Talent panel at auditions this week, already has a daughter, Lexi. But complications during that pregnancy with a low lying placenta meant she gave birth by Caesarean section.

Holden is thought to have been more than eight months pregnant although she had not made public her due date.

Her pregnancy was thought to be in doubt since she was involved in a collision with a lorry in September which left her vehicle a wreck.

She had told her fans on Twitter that the baby had been unaffected by the crash and thanked a "Good Samaritan" for getting her to hospital.
