TV personalities Alan Carr and Amanda Holden are gearing up for another exciting renovation adventure, having secured yet another “One Euro” house. Fresh off the triumph of their previous series, the duo is set to star in a new season of the show, which will test their DIY and design skills to the fullest.
Produced by Voltage TV for BBC One and BBC iPlayer, the series will witness Alan and Amanda working alongside a team of local tradespeople as they transform a dilapidated historic property, complete with a medieval tower, that is in dire need of tender loving care.
Immersing themselves in the local lifestyle, the pair will explore the vibrant culture and embrace a new chapter in one of Italy’s most idyllic regions. Viewers can expect an abundance of warmth and humour, as Alan and Amanda tackle inevitable construction setbacks and design dilemmas, all while breathing new life into a hidden gem of Italy.
The first series of their show garnered significant praise, attracting an average audience of 3.9 million viewers across eight episodes. Impressively, 1.3 million viewers tuned in via BBC iPlayer, with the most-watched episode peaking at 4.6 million viewers.
Expressing her joy, Amanda Holden shared, “I’m absolutely delighted that Alan and I have been given a second series of a show that we created together. This time, I’m considering ditching my nail extensions, but I’ll certainly be keeping the lashes! I’ve got the Aperol Spritz on ice, and I’m being fitted for a new boiler suit as we speak! I adore Alan, and this job suits us both perfectly. The sweetest thing about it all is that we can continue to raise more money for charities that make a huge difference to the lives of so many.”
Equally enthusiastic, Alan Carr exclaimed, “So excited to be returning to Italy with my good friend Amanda for more blood, sweat, and tiles. Can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and transform another Euro house. What could possibly go wrong?!!”
Clare Mottershead, Lead Commissioning Editor, of Factual Entertainment and Events, expressed her excitement, stating, “Amanda and Alan are a ray of sunshine on our screens. With their passion for interior design, making friends, and diving headlong into local life, they entertained and inspired millions last winter. We’re thrilled they are back to take on an even more incredible one-Euro renovation project in another stunning location. Viewers are in for a treat, and we can’t wait to join them—and their irresistible sense of fun—on a new adventure.”
In a generous move, the restored property will be put up for sale, and all profits will be donated to charity. In fact, the net profits from the sale of Casa Alamanda—the property Alan and Amanda renovated in the first series—will be evenly distributed between Children in Need and Comic Relief.
The upcoming series, titled “Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job,” is produced by Voltage TV for BBC One and iPlayer. The show was commissioned by Clare Mottershead, Lead Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment and Events. The executive producers behind the production are Tom Cullum, Sanjay Singhal, and Claire Walls.
