BBC Factual today announces Amanda Holden and Alan Carr will be moving countries for their biggest project yet – they’re heading to the sunny south of Spain where they’ll take on a rambling, run down property in the province of Andalusia for the third series of their hugely popular series where they renovate ageing properties.

With many rural areas suffering from de-population, they’re hoping to remedy this and bring the tourists back by highlighting some unloved and forgotten areas around the Costa del Sol, in Amanda and Alan’s Spanish Job.

Challenging themselves with their biggest house yet to renovate, they’ll be learning new DIY skills, and once again pushing themselves out of their comfort zone as they try to turn their wreck of a house into something magic. This year their interiors style will echo all the region has to offer, as their design delves into the Moorish influences of bygone eras.

After the DIY, Amanda and Alan will of course throw themselves into the Spanish traditions. They’ll travel the breadth of Andalusia to discover the rich, varied landscape of the Sierra Nevada mountains, whitewashed coastal villages and historic Moorish towns. Indulging in the local cuisine, joining in the summer festivals and getting to grips with the local traditions – they’ll be sipping on Sangria, dancing Flamenco and belting out their favourite tracks in the karaoke bar – welcome to Amanda and Alan’s Spanish Job!

Amanda Holden says: “It’s wonderful how often I’m stopped in the street and told how much people love our show. Alan and I have the best time filming it and to have reached series three already is beyond the dreams of our lockdown pitch to the BBC! By day we love getting our hands dirty knocking down walls and lugging around power tools knowing we’ll be sipping on an ice-cold reward by night, forgetting the cameras are rolling! Bring on the Spanish sun, we can’t wait to get started and continue to help Comic Relief and Children In Need along the way.”

Alan Carr says: “It’s always exciting when a show you love gets recommissioned but the fact that we will be bringing our unique DIY expertise to a whole different country makes it even more special. We are saying ciao for now and Hola España! Can’t wait to grab our power tools and get our hard hats on and bring some much needed TLC to a casa in Spain!”

Catherine Catton, Head of Commissioning, Factual Entertainment and Live Events, says: “We’re absolutely delighted that Amanda and Alan are heading to Spain for their biggest and most ambitious renovation project yet. With their passion for interior design, DIY and discovering local life, audiences are in for a real treat.”

Amanda and Alan’s Spanish Job, an 8×30’ series for BBC One and iPlayer, is made by Voltage TV Productions. It was commissioned by Catherine Catton, Head of Commissioning, Factual Entertainment and Live Events, the Executive Producers are Claire Walls, Sanjay Singhal and Tom Cullum, and the Commissioning Editor is Ricky Cooper.
