She said: ‘It’s so difficult because everyone reacts in different ways – because my loss was a baby that never made it to earth I had to find a spiritual way around it.

She continued: ‘I was blessed with my daughter Holly who came soon after.
‘It’s a cliche but you can only take one day at a time – it’s what you can learn from it, gather everyone around you. I hung on very tight to Chris [husband] and my family.’
Amanda married Chris Hughes in 2008 and they are also parents to daughters Alexa, 14, and Hollie, eight.
She said her single With You, reminds her of Theo and the loss.
Amanda said of the song: ‘It’s from Ghost The Musical it’s about grief and loss.
‘It’s one of my favourite ever songs and my husband Chris said: ‘The last two lines of the song remind me of how I felt when we lost Theo.’
She added: ‘I’m very vocal about how I feel. He never really showed his emotions and wanted to be a tower of strength. So when he said it, it knocked me for six.’
Amanda said that she deals with things the best way she can, saying: ‘You never forget but you gradually move forward.’
