Amanda Lamb needs no introduction. She has presented A Place in the Sun, A Place in the Sun Revisited, Celebrity A Place in the Sun, Housetrapped and Top Twenty Best for Channel 4 as well as writing a regular column for A Place in the Sun magazine on her experiences in the world of overseas property.
Born in Portsmouth in a spot that is now the M27, Amanda was an estate agent for four years and then a model for six years. She has appeared in commercials for companies as diverse as Gossard, Oil of Olay and Remington - and the famous Scottish Widows commercial.
These days, Amanda enjoys her own place in the sun. She fell in love with a two-bedroom medieval apartment while filming in Puglia, southern Italy. Her house-hunters didn’t fail to notice the property’s charm either and put in an offer the very next day.
Luckily for Amanda, the developer had other similar properties available and Amanda secured her dream home – a ‘Romeo and Juliet’-style apartment with amazing balconies! Along with her camaraman husband Sean and two daughters - four year old Willow and Charlotte who was born in July 2013 - Amanda finds herself the time to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle whenever she can.
