Amanda Holden’s new Channel 4 show, The Holden Girls: Mandy and Myrtle has had her fans in stitches. The documentary follows the presenter’s special relationship with her ‘nan’ as well as her other family and friends – but there’s a big catch.

The show is in a fact a mockumentary and nan Myrtle, is actually played by Leigh Francis in prosthetics and a wig - although his identity is yet to be revealed.

The eight-part comedy show opened with huge ratings and it wasn’t long before people watching took to Twitter to express their confusion about what was real and what wasn’t.

One fab wrote: “Is this REAL??? Amanda’s Nan looks like Alan Carr Sorry if that’s your real Nan Amanda!” While a second Tweeted, “I’ve spent the whole episode wondering if you nan was a real person.”

A third asked: “Okay someone tell me, is this thing with Amanda Holden and her Nan a joke, because her Nan does not look like a real person she reminds me of Keith Lemon!”

The spoof documentary features Amanda’s husband Chris, and daughters Alexa and Hollie in a bid to make it seem more realistic.

Rumours had been circling about who the true identity of Amanda’s ‘nan’ really was, with people suspecting it was Leigh Francis, Alan Carr, Ant McPartlin or Declan Donnelly.

Eagle-eyed Brits guessed correctly it was Leigh Francis as the Britain’s Got Talent judge posted a teaser clip of the show to social media.
