Amanda Holden has said her unborn baby is ‘perfect’ and unaffected by the crash which left her car a write-off.

The pregnant Britain’s Got Talent judge, who was in a collision with a lorry in west London on Wednesday on the school run, said her own health was fine – but she is still ‘achy’ and in shock.

And she joked that her husband Chris Hughes was considering buying a tank for future road trips.

Amanda, 40, was heading to collect daughter Lexi, five, when the crash happened. Following the incident, she was taken to hospital for a check-up by a passing ‘Good Samaritan’.

She reassured fans that all was well today with a message on Twitter.

“Don’t worry. Baby is perfect. I am ok – achy and shocked. Car totalled,” Amanda said.

And she posted a link to a picture of a military tank saying record producer Hughes had ‘put a deposit down’ on it.

Amanda pulled out of last night’s performance of West End hit Shrek The Musical – in which she plays Princess Fiona.

She announced a fortnight ago that she was pregnant. She lost her baby son earlier this year seven months into the pregnancy.

The actress and presenter also went through the ordeal of a miscarriage the previous year.
