"Two drinks is ABSURD," said another.

Amy lifted the lid

Amy also floored fans when she revealed just how long is spent filming the recoupling scenes.

"Two hours for normal ones about four hours for Casa return," Amy told her followers.

"Two hours!! No wonder people usually look so bored when capturing the reactions," exclaimed one follower.

"Two hours for recouplings?!?!?!" puzzled another.

She also revealed how long it takes to film a recoupling

"How an earth does recouping take that long! That's madness," asked another fan.
