Amanda Holden is set to host her own dating show – 30 years after she appeared as a contestant on Blind Date.
The 50-year-old Britain’s Got Talent judge signed a big-money deal with the BBC after weeks of secret talks.
And insiders are reportedly tipping her to be the new Cilla Black, who fronted the iconic show Blind Date from 1985 through to 2003, reports the Daily Star Sunday.
One said: “Execs are thrilled to have Amanda on board. She is perfect for a dating show because she has a great sense of humour.
“Everyone working on the show thinks she has the potential to be just like Cilla was years ago on Blind Date. There’s a lot of excitement about this.”
The new show will be kicking off three decades after Amanda appeared as a singleton on hit dating series Blind Date.
“Her lockdown rule break isn’t affecting her career, which is a big relief for Amanda.”
Amanda, who celebrated a rare win for Everton by pouring a glass of gin yesterday, is keen to secure TV jobs after this year’s series of Britain’s Got Talent was scrapped because of the pandemic.
If her dating show is commissioned for a full series, it is expected to air later this year.
The former Wild At Heart actress presents a weekday breakfast show on Heart FM. She will also be on the panel for new talent show I Can See Your Voice this spring.
