“A concerned Amanda persuades her lonely nan to relocate from Doncaster to live with her in her swanky London house.
“Following a chaotic settling-in period, it isn’t long before tempers fray and Amanda is forced to choose between her husband and her awkward elder relative.”
Meanwhile, there were a string of names thrown into the mix as fans speculated who was playing her nan.
Many had their money on Saturday Night Takeaway stars Ant & Dec.
“Does anybody really believe ‘Amanda Holden‘s new TV show featuring her ‘nan‘ is really her nan? It’s Ant or Dec dressed up as an old woman!” said a viewer.
A second said:”@AmandaHolden’s nan looks like when Ant & Dec used to dress up and prank celebrities.”
It comes after E4 kept quiet on the identity of Amanda’s nan.
Speaking about the series, Myrtle said: “I have no comment, apart from I’m really hoping being on TV might mean I can finally meet my favourite young man, Ben Shephard.”
Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, Steven Handley, added: “Amanda is one of the UK’s most well-known stars and we are thrilled to get insight into her life with her nan.”
