Britain’s Got Talent star Amanda Holden spoke candidly about the couple’s struggles during a candid interview. The brave 49-year-old revealed how she and husband Chris Hughes coped during one of the most traumatic moments in their lives.
The ITV favourite revealed she had sessions of grief therapy to deal with the loss of Theo, who was stillborn in 2011.
Amanda explained that she and her other half “were using each other too much for our sorrow”.
The couple sought solace by going to therapy in a bid to help heal from their loss.
Speaking on Loose Women, the Britain’s Got Talent head judge admitted her husband was her “tower of strength” during their difficult time.
“Chris had been really strong, he gathered around the family and we talked about it, but he never really showed his emotions because he wanted to be that tower of strength,” Amanda explained.
She revealed that once her other half attended a therapy session he “felt a lot better”.
Amanda said: “[Therapy] was more for me and I wanted to take Chris because we were using each other too much for our sorrow.
“We kind of ran out of tools you would say in how we could help each other and we needed another voice who could sit there and say, ‘Well have you tried this or considered this’.”
Amanda first met her husband Chris, a record producer, in 2003, and the pair started dating a year later.
The couple then tied the knot in December 2008, with their nearly two-year-old daughter Lexi in attendance.
The pair went on to welcome their second daughter Hollie in January 2012.
Meanwhile, Amanda was back on our screens for the last Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals on Saturday night.
