First pictures of the Sunday edition of The Sun hit Twitter

Pictures of the first edition of the new Sunday edition of The Sun have begun to appear on Twitter, as the paper begins to be delivered across the UK, featuring a front page exclusive interview with Amanda Holden over her problems during her recent labour.

The front page story features the headline ‘Amanda Holden exclusive: My heart stopped for 40 seconds’, while the back pages features a story on Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp being offered a new deal at his club, while the future of Frank Lampard remains in doubt at Chelsea also, it claims.

It has been rumoured that the exlusive interview with Amanda Holden cost the newspaper £250,000, with a significant amount of that money being donated to charity.

The pictures of the paper were first tweeted by Sky News correspondent Niall Paterson. This was followed within half an hour by an official tweet from the newspaper with a clearer image of the front cover.

The paper, priced at 50p, also includes columns from Katy Price, Heston Blumenthal, Jose Mourinho and Nancy Dell'Olio.

Owner Rupert Murdoch, oversaw the production of the first edition at its in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire where he is reported by the BBC to have described the launch as a "fantastic achievement by great staff”. On Friday Murdoch Tweeted that he would be happy with sales of over 2 million for the first edition of the Sunday paper.

Meanwhile, the first Sunday edition of The Scottish Sun has splashed the date of 18 October 2014 as the SNP's choice for the date of the Scottish Independence Referendum (see gallery.)
