‘It’s rare I’ve been allowed to tile something!’: Amanda Holden hopes husband Chris Hughes will let her ‘get physically stuck into’ renovating their home after watching her DIY show

Amanda Holden is hoping her husband Chris Hughes will be convinced to let her help renovate their next home after watching her new DIY TV show on Friday. 

The Britain’s Got Talent judge, 51, helped do up two flats in Sicily this summer with comedian pal Alan Carr, 46, for their new BBC show, Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job.

She admitted how good it felt to ‘physically get stuck in’ and is hoping her music producer husband will let her knock down walls, tile and plaster their new home.

Amanda told The Mirror: ‘I want my husband to see me doing it because at home, he wouldn’t trust me to do half of it. It’s been rare that I’ve been allowed to tile something.

‘I want him to let me physically get stuck in more. It’s been much more satisfying knowing we’ve done it and there’s walls that we’ve done – and they’re not wonky or falling down.

‘Tiling we’ve done… we’ve made lights, we’ve made the whole kitchen out of breeze blocks.’

The TV personality told her husband earlier this year that she wanted to move out of their lavish Surrey mansion, they bought in 2015.

The mum-of-two said she is bored of the house, which is on the market for £5million, because it is too perfect and their is nothing left to improve. 

She gave the luxurious property a showbiz makeover and is hoping to make a £1.5million profit having splashed out £3.5m on the five-bedroom home seven years ago.

After buying the home in 2015, herself and Chris described the mansion as their ‘forever home’ and Amanda admitted ‘badgering’ its former owner to sell it to them for years until they finally relented.

The couple also own a holiday home in the Cotswolds, which they have been renovating over the past year.

Amanda added a glamorous outhouse to the Surrey property earlier this year where another bar and the hot tub are located, set upon a large wooden decking area, close to a palm tree she planted in honour of Sir Captain Tom Moore.

The garden room also includes a log burner and comfy sofas, which Amanda says are perfect for a ‘sneaky afternoon disco nap.’

The Heart FM DJ renovated her bespoke Wilson Fink kitchen during lockdown, adding new cupboards and worktops, plus mirrored tiles on the walls.

The mansion, which includes five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a study, is located behind two sets of gates which lead onto a private road towards the house.

Amanda and Alan’s Italian Job airs on January 6 on BBC1 at 8:30pm.
