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 51-year-old Britain’s Got Talent judge helped redecorate two flats in Sicily with comedian boyfriend Alan Carr, 46, this summer for their new BBC show, Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job.

She admitted how good it felt to be “physically stuck” and hopes her music producer husband will let her demolish, tile and plaster walls in their new home.

said Amanda The mirror“I want my husband to see me do it because at home he wouldn’t trust me with half of it.” It is rare that I have been allowed to tile something.

“I want him to get me more physically stuck. It’s much more satisfying to know that we’ve done it and there are walls that we’ve done – and they’re not shaky or falling down.

“We did the tiling…we made lighting, we made the whole kitchen out of wind blocks.”

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

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

She gave the lavish property a showbiz makeover and hopes to make a profit of £1.5 million after spending £3.5 million on the five-bedroom house seven years ago.

After buying the house in 2015, she and Chris described the mansion as their “forever home” and Amanda admitted that she had “bothered” the former owner into selling it to them for years until she finally relented.

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

Amanda added a glamorous annex to the Surrey property earlier this year, which houses another bar and the hot tub, on a large wooden deck, close to a palm tree she planted in honor of Sir Captain Tom Moore.

The garden room also has a wood-burning stove and comfy sofas, which Amanda says are perfect for a ‘snatched afternoon nap at the disco’.

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

The townhouse, which includes five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a study, is behind two sets of gates that open onto a private road leading to the house.

Amanda and Alan’s Italian Job airs January 6 on BBC1 at 8.30pm.
