Love Love Island? Our Factor 50 email brings all the goss direct to your inbox
Love Island fans will know that some of the best and most memorable parts of the show are the much-discussed recoupling ceremonies, which take place around the fire pit.
But ex-Islander Amy Day, who left the famous villa alongside former flame Hugo Hammond, has confessed that the tension was often ruined because of goats (yes, you read that right!).
The 25-year-old professional dancer, singer and actress, who entered the main villa after forming a connection with PE teacher Hugo in Casa Amor, explained that the recouplings often took ‘a couple of hours to film’, before revealing the hilarious behind-the-scenes detail.
Speaking to The Sun's About Last Night, Amy explained: “It’s about a couple of hours just because they have to make sure that everything is captured and everyone knows who they are going to go for.”
She continued: “I would literally be stood there in my heels and my feet would be on fire – and you’ll literally hear the goats in the background!”
“There will be dead silence and they’ll say, ‘please be serious’ as you have to take it very seriously and then you’ll get [a goat noise] in the background.”
During the interview, Amy went on to say that the animal sounds often made the group laugh and they’d have to compose themselves.
However, the reality star added that everyone dealt with the distractions well to pull “amazing” recoupling speeches out of the bag.
Quizzed on who stood out in her mind, Amy recalled: “I think Faye is brilliant with words. Her speech was always bang on.”
Amy added: “She said she never went over it, or thought about what she was going to say, so hats off to Faye.”
This comes after Amy exclusively opened up to OK! about what life was really like on the show, including the things that surprised her.
Amy revealed that the girls and boys were split up at lunchtime so that they could eat their catered lunches separately and so that the cameras wouldn’t miss any drama.
The aspiring West End performer explained: “The cameras are always rolling but we had downtime, as in we’d set tables and chairs up in the kitchen for lunch and the lunch would be bought in.”
She continued: “The girls were split from the boys at lunch time because they didn’t want to miss any good chats, or any drama going on.”
Adding that she and the rest of the girl gang, including Millie Court and Chloe Burrows, always enjoyed their private, quality time together, Amy said: “We’d sit down and chat about life and really silly things.”
