Amanda Holden (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

Britain's Got Talent boss Simon Cowell has praised "incredible" and "amazing" Amanda Holden for returning to the show so quickly... and looking so good doing it!

Amanda’s traumatic birth in January saw her heart stop for 40 seconds, but the West End singer was back on the judging panel just three weeks later.

"Amanda is an incredible story," Simon said today.

Speaking to The Sun, he continued: "She came into work the other day looking amazing and I said to her, 'Two weeks ago you were literally lying on your death bed.'

"There she was, looking incredible and loving every minute — it's like she's made of steel."

Britain's Got Talent 2012 returns to ITV1 this month.
