The actress related the question back to her love for animals explaining that it would be useful if she could communicate with them in English or have the power to fly.

She went on to explain that she deeply understands her chickens regardless of the language barrier and tells the live audience that they are not laying right now due to the hot weather.

Stephen the exclaimed: "I'm not laying right now," to which Amanda responded: "No, me either, I'm never laying again."

This then brought Stephen back to a conversation the pair had the last time Amanda featured on the show in 2021, that Stephen was to remind Amanda not to have another baby due to her sleep deprivation after just giving birth to Thomas.

And so a year later he said: "This is your reminder," to which she shares her gratitude for his amazing memory.
