While Scarlett added: “You have no concept of time when you’re in there. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this but I’m going to say it.
“We once all went to bed at around 4pm, obviously you just don’t know what time it is, and the producers had to be like, ‘Guys, it’s a lot earlier than you think’.”
This revelation comes after Ant and Dec were told off producers for calling the show ‘dull’ while live on air.
