Steph’s Packed Lunch guest tells host she’s marrying a 93 year old chandelier
Steph McGovern was left lost for words this week after a show guest told her she wants to marry a 93-year-old chandelier.
Steph, 38, was unable to hide her shock after Amanda Liberty explained she had fallen for the antique fixture.
Speaking frankly, Amanda said her love of the object had developed into strong affections to it instead of people.
She now hows to tie the knot to the Germain chandelier called Luminere in the coming months.
Amanda told Steph, she said: "I don't view them as inanimate objects as most people do.
"You know the term animism, it's more common in Japan, it's when people sense an energy from an object.
"It's not just a sitting object, it has an energy you can get to know. That's how I feel, it's never a moment that I'm in love.
"It was never a lightbulb moment. It was more like something that happened over time."
Amanda explained she first felt attracted to an object when she fell for a drum kit.
Going into detail about her urges, Amanda aded to a stunned Steph: "I didn't understand it for a long time to be honest.

"But I always accepted myself even though I didn't understand it.
"Even now it's hard to explain because I don't know why I fall in love with objects, I can't explain it.
"But I've accepted myself for who I am and this is why I came here because I want everybody else to just accept and be happy – because it makes me feel happy and content."
Insisting she isn't trying to recreate a marriage on the same level of usual human marriage, Amanda added most people around her accept – even if they don't understand her feeling.
She insists how she feels doesn't have any negative effect on anyone and being around the chandelier, which she initially found on Ebay, makes her happy.
"I understand it is very difficult for a lot of people who haven't heard about this and they have no idea," Amanda continued.

"They think it's weird and it's just an object, some people can see energy in crystals, so it's sort of on that level
Recalling how she first saw her online, Amanda went on to explain that she 'couldn't get her out of my mind' for about two weeks.
She added: "When I say marriage I don't mean compare it to a marriage of another human.
"It's more of a commitment, just an expression of my love and a celebration."
