She said: ‘I’ve been really worried about my nan every since my granddad Derick died.

‘It was really important to bring her down here and make her feel like part of the family again.’

Amanda’s ‘nan’ then comes on screen and asks viewers? ‘Do you want to see some photos of Mandy?’ 

She then pulled out a photo of Amanda from her first marriage to Les Dennis and said: ‘There she is, married to Les. Remember Les? I liked Les. He’d have everyone laughing as soon as he walked into a room.’

Amanda’s nan seems to have a less fond view of her husband Chris Hughes though, simply saying: ‘There’s her current husband Chris.’

Speaking to the camera, Amanda added: ‘My husband Chris, he has decided not to be in this documentary.’

While Chris doesn’t participate, Amanda’s daughters Lexie, 15, and Hollie, nine, are seen spending time with their ‘nan’.

Another added: ‘This isn’t actually Amanda Holden’s nan in that trailer is it? Surely it’s a man dressed up?!’

Other viewers figured out what was going on, with another adding: ‘I haven’t laughed like this for ages’.

One viewer wrote: ‘I am in stitches, love your nan and believe it or not seen you in a different light, you were fab.’
