But while Amanda seemed pleased to meet up with Linda, she didn’t exactly get the same response.

At one point, the pair travelled into London for cocktails with Linda.

As Linda caught a glimpse of them walking in, her face immediately lit up over Alan, 44.

Ignoring Amanda, she said: “Are we cousins?”

The mum-of-two then answered: “We’re cousins,” with Linda replying, “That’s not what I expected.”

Thankfully, Amanda took it well as she joked over Linda’s “gutted” reaction.

In addition, a third shared: “#DNAJourney oh dear… Amanda’s cousin gelled with Alan. Amanda looked a bit out of place #awks.”

Another said: “Amanda’s cousin on #DNAJourney was a bit rude! So awkward. Anyone notice they have the same lips?!”

Furthermore, a fifth said: “I didn’t take to @AmandaHolden’s cousin on #DNAJourney. She looked more interested in Alan. Did anyone else notice? Love your story Amanda.”

Meanwhile, also on the show, Amanda discovered one of her relatives was a founding member of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

Having been an ambassador of the shelter for years, the news brought her to tears.

An executive for Battersea home explained: “We’ve got something really quite interesting to tell you about an ancestor of yours, Thomas, who had a real connection with Battersea.”
