Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has said she's feeling "euphoric" to be back at auditions today.

The West End star will be back behind the judges' desk when auditions hit Edinburgh this afternoon, reclaiming her seat from guest judge Carmen Electra.

The move comes just a couple of weeks after Amanda gave birth to new daughter Hollie Rose, which left her fighting for life in intensive care.

Speaking about her return, Amanda said: "I'm euphoric to be heading back to the judges' desk. To be honest, after the last couple of weeks I'm euphoric to be anywhere!"

But despite previous reports, Amanda revealed she wouldn’t be taking Hollie to the auditions with her!

"This is just a very fleeting visit to Scotland and with the weather being so extreme I've decided to let my mum have some quality time with her new granddaughter," she explained. "But I am looking forward to introducing Hollie to everyone on my next trip."

Meanwhile insiders have claimed that the show's cast and crew - Simon Cowell aside - are happy to have Amanda back in place of Carmen, who was booed when auditions took place in London last week.

"It's fair to say everyone's glad Amanda is returning," an insider told The Sun this morning.

Britain's Got Talent 2012 wil hit air on ITV1 from April.
