Amanda & Alan's Italian Job | Series 2 Preview (BBC One)

Amanda Holden and Alan Carr are packing their boiler suits once again after bagging another one-euro house – this time, in the idyllic region of northern Tuscany.

Falling in love with the romance and history of an old building, Alan purchases a dilapidated 17th-century house with a medieval watchtower in the rural hamlet of Fornovolasco, and ropes in best friend Amanda to spend their summer transforming it into another Italian dream home.

However, arriving at the property for the first time, they discover it’s been left empty since the previous owner passed away. Full of damp, and with rotten floors and cracked windows, it dawns on them that a massive restoration job lies ahead.

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.

Amanda Holden says: “I’m obviously 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.”

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?!!”

Amanda & Alan's Italian Job returns Friday 5th January at 8:30pm on BBC One.
