Amanda travelled to Cornwall to be with her sister

Amanda, 45, was celebrating Simon Cowell's 57th birthday at a party on Thursday evening when she heard the news about her younger sister, and travelled from London to Cornwall to be by her side.

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."

Fans have been quick to send well wishes to Debbie, with one tweeting: "My thoughts are with @AmandaHolden and her family at this difficult time," while another wrote: "So sorry about your sister Amanda, but so glad she's through the worst & is getting better."

This is not the first time Amanda's sister has been in danger, as the Britain's Got Talent judge previously revealed that her sister was near an avalanche in Nepal that killed twenty-one people back in April.

Opening up on ITV's This Morning, she said: "There was only four of them left at that camp because my sister was suffering so badly from altitude sickness she didn't walk up to Base Camp - which actually, potentially, might have saved her life."
