“What happens is it gives them a day to clean the villa and you take your mics off and usually we go to the beach,” the This Morning star explained.

“So what happens is when you take the mics off, you’re not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show or the couples, you have to talk about home life,” he went on to say.

However, Amy Hart, who appeared on the show in 2019, claimed that was not the case for her. “Saturdays are not a day off. We don’t have days off, we have our microphones all the time, she told Closer. “Every day I was in there I was microphoned and filmed.”
