They've got their mics on 24/7, they're given morning debriefs and, according to Tom Clare and Molly Smith, they're re-filming scenes too.

When we spoke to the real life Barbie and Ken this week, we had to ask for the behind the scenes tea and they didn't disappoint.

"We had to re-film a lot of things," Tom admitted.

"Like recouplings and stuff. Mitch I'm telling you now, Mitch's recoupling speech was the funniest thing."

He continued, "I don't know how much got aired, because I didn't see it but I remember him, he had to do it so many times. He stood up.

"He goes something like, 'Time flies in this place when I'm with this girl even though I can't tell the time. When I look at this girl, it's like looking in the mirror.'"

And if you're wondering if it was as bizarre as it sounds, it probably was because Molly said, "It made no sense."

"Josh is sat next to him and Josh goes, 'Come on mate, speak about her personality and looks.'

"[Mitch] looks and he goes, 'Shut the f--k up Josh.'"

And it turns out that the recouplings weren't the only time they had to refilm scenes because Molly dropped a bombshell.

"As well [as that], you do like half a day on the Saturday and then you have to put all the same bikinis and stuff on Sunday and then carry it on."

And if you're wondering what they do on a Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, they have their 'down days' and Chris Taylor said that the All Stars day offs were 'banging'.
