TV star Amanda Holden has paid a poignant tribute to her late son, Theo, on what would have been his 11th birthday.

Theo was tragically stillborn at seven months in 2011, when a routine scan revealed his heart had stopped. The 50-year-old presenter acknowledged the milestone with an Instagram post on Tuesday showing a lovely inking of his footprints.

She captioned the post: 'You would have been 11 today. I’m still grateful you chose us for your journey .. #Theo ❤️'    

Amanda married Chris in 2008 and they are also parents to daughters Alexa, 16, and Hollie, 10.
