Amanda Holden fights back tears on This Morning as she talks about her love for daughters Lexi and Hollie

AMANDA Holden fought back tears on This Morning today as she spoke about her beloved children.

The 49-year-old Britain's Got Talent star got emotional while she was promoting her festive single Home For Christmas.

In an emotional speech, she said: "It's all about love.

"The reason we can function and go out of the door every day, those of us that are lucky enough, is because we've got somebody at home who encourages us.

"Who helps us to stay strong and get out there and face the world really. I'm lucky in having Chris and Lexi and Holly, my parents,…"

She then broke off, fanning her face, telling hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: "I'm going to start tearing up now.

"I just think this year's been a big old year, hasn't it? We're very fortunate all of us.

"I know lots of people have been less fortunate. Home For Christmas has really got that sentiment to it."

The single got a play on This Morning today, showing Amanda in a  chunky cream jumper in the music video.

There were also appearances from Hollie, eight, and Lexi, 14, her daughters with husband Chris Hughes.
