The Italian Job follows Amanda Holden and Alan Carr as they join the ranks of the ‘One Euro’ home buyers, purchasing their own slice of heaven at a bargain price in a little town nestled in the sun-kissed hills of rural Sicily.

Armed with a shared passion for travel and interior design they spent the summer immersing themselves in the Sicilian way of life, as they transform their depilated house into a luxury holiday home, before auctioning for charity.

Following ratings success - the series continues Friday nights at 8:30pm on BBC One - the BBC have reportedly already commissioned a second series. The new series will see the duo renovate another property abroad and sell for charity.

A source told The Sun: "t’s so hard for new TV shows to make an impact, but the ratings have been incredible and Amanda and Alan’s chemistry is ­undeniable. To think the pair of them had the idea themselves during lockdown and are now planning series two is a dream come true for them both."

Alan and Amanda have renovated their own properties in the past, but neither of them has tackled a project of this scale before. Whilst they’ll try their hand at everything - from plumbing to painting and plastering - they’ll be drafting in local tradespeople to show them the ropes and help keep the project on track.

Amanda & Alan's Italian Job is available now on BBC iPlayer.
