Amanda Holden has penned a gushing message for her husband on their anniversary, saying she couldn’t live without him.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge and her husband Chris Hughes tied the knot 12 years ago in 2008 and have two daughters together.

Marking the milestone with a picture of the pair on Instagram, Holden wrote: “Almost 18 years together and married 12 today.

“I literally couldn’t live my life without this hilarious, gorgeous, clever man - he is the best Daddy and our foundation!”

The star unveiled an album this year and has told how her rendition of the song With You, which is from the musical Ghost, was dedicated to her son and her husband.

"The last lines of this song are ‘You took my life with you, Took my world with you’ and so this is for Theo, our baby who was born sleeping and for Chris who stayed strong when I fell apart,” she was quoted as saying.
