Careful! Alan Carr, 45, donned a wetsuit to try his hand at windsurfing as he filmed scenes for his new show in Sicily on Wednesday

The comedian wore a yellow neoprene shirt which he paired with black shorts as he wobbled on the water.

For safety, Alan wore a black helmet as well as black water socks to help his feet grip the board.

Shielding his eyes from the scorching sun behind blinds, the star looked nervous as he stood before later attempting to grab hold of the sail.

Professional Marco stood in the water to offer advice before leaving the presenter to his own devices – as a small camera captured all the fun.

Amanda and Alan: The Italian Job will follow the duo as they join the ranks of “one-euro” homebuyers, buying Sicilian property at a bargain price.

Armed with a shared passion for travel and interior design, they will spend the summer immersing themselves in the Sicilian way of life by transforming their depilated home into a luxury vacation home.

As the duo roll up their sleeves for the challenge, they will also immerse themselves in the local way of life, befriending their Sicilian neighbors and exploring what the beautiful region of Italy has to offer.

Alan said of the show: “After presenting two rounds of Masters in Interior Design, I think now is the time for me to put on my helmet, put on my steel-toed boots and really get my hands dirty.”

Before adding: “Working in beautiful Sicily with one of my dearest friends, it’s as if I had won the jackpot. Expect a summer of drilling, demolition and hopefully la dolce vita!

While Amanda, 51, added: “Although we are [her and Alan] on the same page most of the time, I’m more practical and organized than Alan. However, he is ready to bargain shamelessly, which will help us stay within our budget! »

With the aim of reviving villages and small towns, many Italian municipalities are offering dilapidated houses for sale for a symbolic price of one “euro” to be renovated for reuse.

Alan and Amanda’s property is one of many empty properties being sold at bargain prices. At the end of the summer, the property will be put up for sale and all proceeds will be donated to charity.

The BBC One series will air later this year.
