Best friends Amanda Holden and Alan Carr are coming together to renovate an old and crumbling property in Italy to see if they can make a masterpiece. 

The eight-part series will see the duo join the ‘One Euro’ home buyers who are travelling to the sunny climes of Sicily to own a slice of heaven at a discounted price. 

The pair both love travel and interior design and will spend the summer settling into the Sicilian way of life, renovating a dilapidated house into a luxury holiday home.

BBC One announces celebrity panel for I Can See Your Voice

Comedian Jimmy Carr and TV favourites Alison Hammond and Amanda Holden will be guiding the players guessing who can and can’t sing from a group of unknown singers standing before them.

Each week a different popstar will also join the panel.

Holden said: “I’ve seen first hand over my many years as a judge how acts can shock you with an incredible voice.

“With my experience on stage, television and radio I think I have one of the best pair of eyes in the business for spotting talent, so the masqueraders will really have to up their game to fool me!”
