Alan Carr and Amanda Holden’s new show sounds like a real old romp

If you watched Alan Carr and Amanda Holden’s DNA Journey for ITV last year, you already know that they are a glorious and fantastic camp TV duo.

Well, now the BBC has decided to throw some safety helmets and paint rollers into the mix for a brand new show for the couple, and it sounds like a real old fashioned romp.

In Amanda And Alan: The Italian Job, they join forces to renovate a dilapidated house in Italy.

The couple bought adjoining apartments in rural Sicily – for a total of two euros – which they will knock together during the show and transform into a large holiday home.

The eight-part series follows the duo as they roll up their sleeves to try out their skills from plumbing to painting and plastering, as well as delving into the local lifestyle and exploring the region of Italy.

The completed property will go on sale at the end of the summer and all profits will be donated to charity.

They have both renovated their own properties in the past, but neither has tackled a project of this magnitude before.

Alan said: “After presenting two series of Interior Design Masters, I feel it is now time for me to put on my helmet, put on my steel-toe boots and really get my hands dirty.

“Working in beautiful Sicily with one of my best friends is like hitting the jackpot.

“Expect a summer of drilling, demolition and hopefully la dolce vita.”

Alan and Mandy previously worked together on an episode of ITV’s DNA Journey

Mandy said: “Alan and I came up with the idea for this show and approached the BBC because we knew it was the perfect house.

“We are both very passionate about interior design and we will be very hands on to inject some much needed life into an area of ​​Sicily that needs some Holden and Carr magic.

“Although we’re usually on the same page, I’m more practical and organized than Alan.

“He’s up for some blatant negotiation, though, so that will help us stay within budget.

“We have already started filming and one thing is certain, we are not afraid to use a power tool.”

A broadcast date for Amanda And Alan: The Italian Job has yet to be announced.
