Amanda Holden breaks down in tears as she's 'overwhelmed' by grueling property makeover | The Sun

AMANDA Holden was reduced to tears after she became overwhelmed by the challenging property renovations on the BBC One series, Amanda & Alan's Italian Job.

The new series sees the two friends embark on a journey to transform a rundown property in Sicily.


Amanda, 51, was in great form as she rolled up her sleeves to help rebuild an old house in Sicily alongside her good friend Alan Carr, 46.

The pair took on a two-bedroom apartment- that they bought for €1 ( around 88p) – that needed some work done to it.

However, things suddenly got more stressful as the duo set out to design a Sicilian kitchen in scorching temperatures of heat.

Alan said: "Its going to be 36 degrees today. How are we going to do anything? I might have to do it topless."

Things got more challenging as they went on – leaving poor Amanda in tears.

"I didn't think a bit of marble would make me cry," Amanda said trying to hold back her emotions.

"I just feel overwhelmed I think," she said.

During the episode, Alan and Amanda started designing the interiors for their open-plan living and dining room.

They also invited local friends Fabrizio, Maria Pia and Carlos over for a plastering party, but things soon got out of hand as a spillage nearly ruined their newly laid terrazzo floor.

With Alan’s help, Scott designed a sleek marble dining table and gave Alan and Amanda a lesson in making bespoke wall lights out of vintage Sicilian tiles.

The pair then decided to go on a shopping trip to the coastal city of Trapani – where Amanda was on the search for modern soft furnishings for the living room, and Alan was looking for antique knick-knacks in the old town.
