For Blind Date in 1991 – her first TV appearance – Amanda wore a low-cut black jumpsuit and revealed that her ideal husband would be Hollywood star Jack Nicholson, who is over 30 years older than her.

She applied for an audition after seeing a poster and then admitted that she hadn’t actually been single at the time, but was engaged. That relationship ended and in 1995 she married comedian Les Dennis – she was 24 and he was 41.

In 2000, she had a much-discussed affair with Men Behaving Badly star Neil Morrissey, and divorced Dennis three years later.
