Amal and George Clooney have offered fans the chance to go on a double date with them at their home in Italy.

The human rights lawyer and the Hollywood actor are opening their doors to one lucky pair as part of a campaign to raise money for the Clooney Foundation for Justice.

Founded by the celebrity couple in 2016, the foundation "advocates for justice through accountability for human rights abuses around the world".

The trip includes a double date with the famous couple at their Lake Como villa, a luxurious lunch, a group photo, flights to Italy and a stay in a four-star hotel.

George participated in a comedic video to promote the exclusive double date opportunity, in which the director of the video quips that Amal is the main "selling point" of the offer.

"Hi, I'm Amal Clooney's husband George and we'd like to invite you to come with us to Lake Como," George states, after being instructed to read lines from a script.

"That's right, to benefit the Clooney Foundation for Justice we're inviting you and a guest to come on a double date with Amal, a world-renowned human rights lawyer, law school professor and a leading thinker on the concept of justice throughout the world and me... an actor," he says, with a deadpan expression.

The two-time Oscar winner later asks those interested in the opportunity to picture themselves enjoying a drink with Amal while discussing current affairs while he "quietly serves lunch".

"Really, why don't we do a take where it just says Amal will be there and I won't even be there," George remarks, to which the video director replies: "That is a fantastic idea, let's do that."

Earlier this year, Amal was appointed the UK Foreign Office's special envoy on media freedom.

In her new role, the human rights lawyer will work with foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt to combat increasing violence against journalists and "draconian and outdated laws" being used internationally against the press.

“Amal Clooney’s leading work on human rights means she is ideally placed to ensure this campaign has real impact for journalists and the free societies who depend on their work," Hunt said.

The lawyer's husband recently spoke about sharing a birthday with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first child, joking that Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor "stole his thunder".

The Gravity actor, who turned 58 on 6 May, told Jimmy Kimmel that it would be a "bad idea" for him to be named the royal's godfather, despite speculation surrounding the notion.
