Britain's Got Talent's Amanda Holden has announced that she's releasing her debut album – and you can pick up a copy for yourself very soon.
Songs from My Heart will be released on Friday, October 2, and features a collection of celebrated musical theatre numbers that each hold a place in Amanda's heart.
"People think they know who I am because they see me being loud and outrageous on the television or radio. That is a part of me but really I'm all about my family," Amanda said in a statement about the record.
"This album is all the songs I've loved in my life, sung for the people who mean the most to me. It's a very emotional album that everyone can relate to."
"I had a tape recorder as a little girl and would sing into it dreaming of this moment," she added.
"There is a story behind every song on the album, celebrating life, love and loss – the darkest and happiest moments in my life so far. It is literally my heart laid bare."
The album features a number of classic tracks, including 'I Dreamed a Dream' from Les Misérables, 'Not While I'm Around' from Sweeney Todd and a cover of Evita's 'Don't Cry for Me Argentina'.
Amanda will also sing a duet with Sheridan Smith, with the duo performing Chess stand-out 'I Know Him So Well', while the lead single from the album – which sees Amanda perform a cover of 'With You' from Ghost – is out now.
News of Amanda's album follows the release of her debut single 'Over the Rainbow' earlier this year. The song hit the Number 1 spot on the iTunes charts and helped to raise funds for NHS Charities Together during the COVID-19 crisis.
Meanwhile, Amanda is also back on our screens on Britain's Got Talent, with the show returning to air last month after a production break caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Diversity star Ashley Banjo will be sitting in for Simon Cowell on the judging panel during the live semi-finals after Cowell had to undergo surgery for a broken back.
Songs from My Heart will be released on Friday, October 2, with Amanda performing live on Britain's Got Talent on October 3 too. The album is available to pre-order now.
The Britain's Got Talent semi-finals will air on Saturday evenings from September 5 on ITV.
