Actress Amanda Holden is at her sister's bedside after she was involved in a serious car crash leaving her in intensive care.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge had been attending Simon Cowell's 57th birthday celebrations when she heard the news.
Her younger sister Debbie, 44, was involved in a crash in Cornwall on Thursday.
Her sister, who escaped the earthquake in Nepal in April last year, is in a critical but stable condition in intensive care at a Cornwall hospital.
A source told The Sun: “Amanda was distraught. She immediately travelled to Cornwall to be with Debbie.
“It’s been a very difficult 48 hours and the whole family have been pulling together and trying to keep positive. “Amanda is very close to her sister. They’re only a year apart and there’s something about them together which is really special. Amanda’s still with her in hospital.”
The sisters became close after the actress nearly died through childbirth complications in 2012.
Her sister, a scuba diver, splits her time between Cornwall and Koh Lanta in Thailand.
