‘A lot of women I know are looking for the next phase of their lives, rather than, ‘You’ve had your children, now it’s your turn to shut up’,’ Amanda told Stellar. 

‘I’ve had my children, they’re self-sourcing, and now it’s my turn,’ she continued.

‘Other generations didn’t get that chance or choice – the third act… I’m hoping this is my third act.’

Amanda told the Who Are You podcast in February this year, that she always runs each job by her husband Harley Oliver and sons Liam and Jack, before accepting.

‘I run everything past the family at home before I say yes to things,’ she said at the time.

‘And I couldn’t say no to that (Dancing with the Stars). I am nervous and overly excited about that and doing live TV.

‘The family has accepted that there will be one night a week I won’t be home, but they like that I like my job.’
