TV star Amanda Holden could be about to join the ranks of some of the greatest figures in history – when a plaque is put up on her childhood home in Hampshire.
Purple plaque for Amanda’s former home
English Heritage have run a scheme for decades where blue plaques are added to the previous dwellings of notable people – providing they have been dead for at least 20 years. But property company Zoopla is setting up a rival project where the former homes of today’s top celebs are awarded purple plaques, often showing the stars’ humble beginnings Under the scheme, Amanda’s former home in Tangledown, Lower Chase Road, Waltham Chase is likely to be awarded with a plaque in the coming months.
