Amanda Holden fans slam star for using private jet to meet pal Alan Carr in Italy

Amanda Holden has faced backlash from fans after sharing photos of herself boarding a private jet on Friday 22 July, leaving some of her followers concerned over her carbon footprint.

Wearing a white t-shirt, dark shades, and a floral print skirt while posing on the staircase of the jet, Amanda penned: "Well! What a treat! [email protected] to the rescue!! Finally On my way to @chattyman in Sicily".

The radio host, 51, has been filming a new BBC show with Alan Carr, 46, which will see the pair front the upcoming series The Italian Job. It is said that the stars will be seen buying a dilapidated house and taking on the challenge of renovating the property.

It's unclear whether Amanda and Alan have returned to the island off the coast of Italy this week for the project, or whether they are enjoying a holiday together in the region.

She later confirmed that she had reunited with Alan after arriving at her destination, posting a selfie of them together, captioned: "Back with this one for a few days."

However, some of her 1.8 million followers were not too pleased with her recent travel methods and were equally not afraid to share opinions, according to the Mirror.

"Disappointing all these celebs bleat on about saving the planet and then take a private jet," said one person. Another asked: "Blimey, what's the carbon footprint for that?"

A third wrote: "That should add nicely to global warming pollutants." Another said: "Private jet. That's responsible," whilst a third wrote: "Carbon footprint must be huge."

"Oh Amanda. Why have you posted this? We are all trying to do our bit for global warming," another responded. A sixth wrote: "Keeping your carbon footprint up I see."

Another said: "Please don't ever offer any lectures or advice on how to save the planet. This is disgraceful." Whilst another person said that they were "highly unimpressed".

"Cried on TV about the environment and then uses a private jet. Shameless," said one, potentially referencing her emotion over a song about climate change on BGT.

Some followers however came to her defence amid the backlash in the comments, with one writing: "You enjoy yourself girl. We would all be in private jets if we could."

Another suggested the impact would be minimal compared to other behaviours, saying: "Amanda getting on a private jet is absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things."
