The mother-of-one, who is married to Chris Hughes, proudly showed off her baby bump when she attended BGT auditions in Manchester last week but faced criticism for wearing high heels.
In response, the star Tweeted: ‘I walk less than 25 metres a day in heels whilst up the duff! #justsaying!’
Holden, who has never confirmed her due date, had a stillborn son last year but announced she was expecting again last August.
