Amanda Holden: First Public Appearance Since Baby Tragedy

Amanda Holden Amanda Holden has appeared in public for the first time since losing her baby seven months into her pregnancy.

Miss Holden stepped out for the Olivier Awards at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, and looked healthy and in good spirits in a pavement-sweeping blue gown and a new hairstyle.

She later wrote on her Twitter page:

'Had a lovely welcome on stage at Olivier Awards Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Hope its the first of many.'

Amanda is currently in rehearsals for the new West End production of Shrek: The Musical, which opens in May.

She told a newspaper last week that her family and friends were keeping her going. She said: 'To be honest, just being at home with family and friends is the best tonic, the best therapy. I'm doing lots of that.'
