Amanda Holden has hinted that she's in the frame for the revival of Blind Date - 30 years after being a contestant on the show.

There were rumours that the presenter was working on a reboot of the legendary Cilla Black dating show, and now Amanda herself has dropped a huge hint that there's something in the works.

In a recent interview with presenter Richard Arnold, Amanda explained, "It's always been a dream of mine to have my own dating show, so I'm excited that I'm working on something special with the BBC at the moment."

The show was presented by Cilla from 1985 to 2003, where a single wannabe dater asked several questions to three other singletons - but with a wall separating them, which would be slid back for the big reveal.

Amanda was speaking ahead of the launch of her new show I Can See Your Voice, which she's appearing on with Alison Hammond and Jimmy Carr. She describes the new singing series - which airs on BBC One next month - as "very funny"

"The chemistry between us all is brilliant," Amanda says. "What's great about this show is that we celebrate the good and the bad singers, which has never been done before."
