Amanda Holden (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has hit back at critics who slated her for returning to work so soon after giving birth.

The West End star, who was back on the show within three weeks of welcoming her new daughter, told haters on Twitter to "get a life".

One message to Amanda on the social networking website read: "How can Amanda Holden leave a 3 week old baby she so wanted and go working 350 miles away????"

But a feisty Amanda was quick to reply, writing: "Get a life - it's a precious commodity. As are my family...already home."

She quipped: "You have much to learn young lady."

41-year-old Amanda, who is also mum to daughter 6-year-old daughter Lexi with husband Chris Hughes, was rushed to hospital earlier this month to give birth.

Speaking after returning home with new daughter Hollie Rose, Amanda declared: "My life is now complete."
