One Britain's Got Talent judge is set to play love doctor in Netflix's new reality romp, Cheaters: Unfinished Business.

Amanda Holden, best known for her long-standing role as a Britain’s Got Talent judge, is taking her talents to Netflix with a new reality series aimed at healing broken hearts and rekindling lost flames.

Titled Cheaters: Unfinished Business, this show promises to bring the drama as Amanda guides estranged ex-couples, whose relationships ended due to infidelity, through a journey of reconciliation.

In a statement, the stalwart media personality expressed her excitement, saying: “Sometimes dreams really do come true. All my career I always wanted to host a show about love and relationships – and this is it.”

It seems like a fitting role for Holden, whose TV journey began back in 1991 as a contestant on the dating show Blind Date, hosted by the late Cilla Black.

Set to commence filming this summer, the series will be produced by Lifted Entertainment, the same company behind Love Island, and co-produced with 12 Yard.

The exact location of filming remains a mystery, adding to the intrigue of the show.

Holden isn’t the only UK presenter making waves on Netflix.

Former This Morning host Holly Willoughby is gearing up to co-host the adventurous series Bear Hunt with Bear Grylls, and Emma Willis and Matt Willis are set to appear in the first Love Is Blind UK season.

Reflecting on the new project, Matt Willis shared his excitement, saying: “It’s been such a dream working together and fascinating to watch the process unfold. Experiencing this new project side by side has been really amazing, and I can’t wait for people to come on this journey with us.”

However, Holden’s Netflix venture comes on the heels of a social media feud with The X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.

After Louis criticised Simon Cowell on Celebrity Big Brother, Holden defended Cowell, leading to a public spat with Osbourne, who fired back with a scathing post listing her accomplishments.

When asked about the feud, Holden brushed it off to The Daily Mail, calling it 'all bs' and preferring not to give it any more attention.

With her focus now on her Netflix project, it seems Holden is ready to leave the drama behind and dive into the world of reality romance.

Get ready for some heartwarming reunions and maybe a few tears along the way!
