"No, I don’t know where this has come from," Amy said. "We went to McDonald's after the wrap party and apparently that was our first date, but my dad was with us and we went through drive-through. "The model added, "Me and Joey came out at the same time and have been on lockdown together for the last few days so we've been having an absolute ball.
