Amanda Holden struggled to hold back her tears on today's Lorraine, as she described the heartbreaking story behind the release of her new song.
The 49-year-old will perform her new single With You on Britain's Got Talent this weekend, following its release earlier today.
With You is an original track from Ghost the Musical, and Amanda has dedicated the track to her late son Theo, who was tragically stillborn in 2011.
Speaking to host Lorraine Kelly, Amanda explained her husband overheard her singing the song, and said it reminded him of the experience of losing Theo.
She said: "Essentially, it's a song about grief and loss."
Amanda recalled the heartbreaking exchange with her husband Chris Hughes, remembering the moment he said: "Do you know the last two lines of that song was how we felt when we lost Theo."
The final verse of the song goes: "You took my life with you / Took my world with you."
Fighting tears, Amanda added that "Chris is a typically stoic man," so "for him to have come out of that sentence, it just floored me".
As she watched the music video for With You, Amanda expressed that the release of the single was “very emotional" as she remembers her late son.
Meanwhile, over on Twitter, viewers were moved to tears as they congratulated Amanda on the release of her single, praising her honesty in addressing her grief.
One said: "I've just listened to this. It's really beautiful. I lost my Mum 3 months ago, and the words in the chorus felt so full of meaning to me. Needless to say, it brought on a lot of tears. All the best with the song Amanda x"
A second added: "@AmandaHolden you just brought me to tears on @lorraine."
And a third wrote: "@AmandaHolden just heard you talk about the song 'with you' &how your husband said it reminded him of your loss of baby Theo. This song has always reminded my of my ectopic pregnancy in 2016 because of the words too. I'm delighted you have released it and you sing it beautifully."
Lorraine airs on weekdays at 9am on ITV
