“It’s a song about grief and loss,” Amanda said. “It’s a very moving song. My whole album means so much for me.”

She added: “I sing it a lot. My whole album in fact is about songs that mean so much to me and my family. It was my husband Chris who absolutely floored me one day when I was singing.

“He said: ‘The last two lines of that song really remind me of how we felt when we lost Theo,’ who was our lovely little boy who was born sleeping.

“The last two lines are: ‘You took my world away, you took my life away,'” she added sadly.

Amanda revealed her husband is a “stoic man” and the declaration “floored her”.

“It just floored me”

“Chris is a typically stoic man, who was very supportive of me and our girl Lexie when it all happened and never took time for himself,” she revealed.

“So for him to come out with that sentence, it just floored me. That’s the first single we thought to release – very emotional,” she added.

Amanda appeared on the show to chat about the launch of her album – and gave an update about her BGT pal Simon Cowell‘s health.

She told Lorraine: “He’s doing really well.”

Amanda – who has taken over the role of head judge in Simon’s absence – added that one of the show’s producers had spoken to Simon.

“One of the producers actually told me she’d had a conversation with him. He’s sounding really happy and healthy.

“We just want him to take the time to recover. You know what he’s like, he’s a workaholic!,” she laughed.
