Amanda Holden has paid tribute to her stillborn son Theo on what would have been his 10th birthday.
The Britain’s Got Talent star suffered the heartbreak of a stillbirth at seven months in 2011 and has previously spoken about the trauma of losing him.
She posted a photo of Theo’s footprints on Instagram to remember him on his birthday and wrote: “#Theo ..our gorgeous little boy ...You would have been 10 years old today...not a day goes by without thinking of you.”
Holden’s celebrity friends commented with messages of support, including Kate Thornton who wrote: “Darling, thinking of you and Chris and sending nothing but love.”
Charlotte Hawkins wrote: “So heartbreaking for you, sending love.”
Holden has two other children with husband Chris Hughes – daughters Lexi and Hollie – and had also been through a miscarriage after Lexi’s birth and before Theo’s.

In July, Holden spoke about the traumatic experience with Theo in the BBC documentary Dear NHS Superstars.
She said: “Theo was put into a little room so his body could be preserved and we could go and see him as much or as little as we wanted.
“Jackie (her midwife and friend) talked to me about the keepsakes we could have, to remind ourselves of Theo forever. We got his footprints and a little bit of his hair and the blanket he was born in."
Talking about the devastating moment she discovered Theo had no heartbeat, she said: “An obstetrician was coming past and Jackie said to the obstetrician, 'Please can you go in, I can't hear the patient's baby's heartbeat', and then I heard this guttural screaming.
"It was the most bizarre thing that's ever happened to me because it was me. I didn't know I was doing it. I had no control over myself, I thought it was another person making the noise."
