After suffering a shock miscarriage earlier this month, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge Amanda Holden has vowed to return for the live shows of the hit ITV1 show this May.

Holden spoke out via Twitter, “Chris [Hughes, partner] and I would like to thank you all for the thousands of messages offering support and love during this horrendous time,” to over 330,000 followers on the social networking site on February 13th, and an ITV source has been quoted as stating that she hopes to return to the programme for the live shows, which attracted mammoth ratings of over 18 million, back in 2009.

Holden will join new judges Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff on the judging panel, along with returning judge and producer, Simon Cowell.

The show has produced acts such as Susan Boyle, George Sampson, Paul Potts and last year’s winners, Spellbound. It even brought Sheffield-based drag queen, Tia Anna (below), to national attention in 2009 via the audition shows.

The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ live tour will also be stopping at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on June 24th.
