ALAN & AMANDA RETURN FOR SECOND ITALIAN JOB ON BBC ONE, RETURN DATE CONFIRMED
Following the success of Amanda and Alan’s Italian Job, Alan Carr and Amanda Holden are packing their boiler suits once again after bagging another ‘One Euro’ house – this time, in the sun-kissed hills of Tuscany.
Produced by Voltage TV for BBC One and BBC iPlayer the series will test the duo’s DIY and design skills to the max. As they join forces with a team of local tradespeople, they’ll be renovating a dilapidated historic home complete with a medieval tower that’s in dire need of some TLC.
Alan and Amanda will be embracing local life, exploring the rich culture and throwing themselves headfirst into a new adventure in one of Italy’s most idyllic regions. The warmth and humour of their friendship will once again be in abundance as they face inevitable build hiccups and design dilemmas while aiming to breathe new life into an undiscovered corner of Italy.
The first series proved a big hit with viewers, consolidating at an average audience of 3.9 million across eight episodes, with 1.3M coming via iPlayer, and peaking at 4.6m for the most watched episode.
Alan Carr says: “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 possible go wrong?!!”
At the end of the restoration, the property will go on sale and profits will be donated to charity. Casa Alamanda - the property Alan and Amanda renovated in series one, is in the process of being sold with the net profits to be shared equally between Children in Need and Comic Relief.
Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job is produced by Voltage TV for BBC One and iPlayer, returns Friday 5th January.
