Amanda Holden lands E4 show No Holden Back where she moves in with her NAN

AMANDA Holden has landed her own E4 series which will see her living with her nan, Myrtle.

The eight-part documentary-style programme called No Holden Back will show the popular telly star’s “unique relationship” with her nan, as well as other family members and friends.

Her decision to sign up for the show, which will also be broadcast on Channel 4, means she will have programmes on all three major channels – adding to ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and BBC One’s I Can See Your Voice.

Amanda said: "I’m delighted that everyone is finally going to meet my nan, the apple never falls far from my tree and in this series she will certainly be keeping me on my toes." 

A spokesperson for her nan, 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 said: “Amanda is one of the UK’s most well-known stars and we are thrilled to get insight into her life with her nan.”


She has spent several weeks filming for the series although full details are being kept firmly under wraps.

As well as shooting the programme, she has continued as the host of the Heart breakfast show alongside Jamie Theakston.

Amanda hinted at the show last month when she said she was working on a project which was making her go “back to her roots.”

A source said at the time: “This is the first time Amanda has worked with Channel 4.

“It’s a top-secret brand new show format and will take Amanda back to her TV roots, having started out on shows like Kiss Me Kate, Hearts and Bones and Cutting It in the Nineties.”
