Jake Shears has revealed how much coffee he drinks a day… and the quantity may leave your jaws on the floor.

When it comes to the debate of how much coffee is ok to drink a day, you’re likely to receive an array of different answers.

Some may say one is enough, while others might go for multiple… but what do you think about eight shots of coffee?

In the new episode of Never Mind The Buzzcocks on Sky Max, Scissor Sisters star Jake revealed that’s how much he consumes on a daily basis – and the rest of the panel were understandably gobsmacked.

Host Greg Davies turned to the musician to ask if you would verify how much coffee he drank every day, with the 44-year-old confirming that he drinks two cappuccinos a day, each of which contains four shots to bring his total to eight.

‘My researcher tells me that you open a day with eight shots of espresso,’ Greg announced, with his statement sparking gasps from the other members of the panel.

‘I do,’ Jake answered. ‘I have one four-shot cappuccino first thing, and then when I’m done with that, I go and I get another four-shot cappuccino.’

Despite his admission shocking some in the studio, the singer stressed: ‘It’s not that big of a deal, but people find it shocking.’

Nonetheless, Greg suggested that Jake should walk around with a defribillator on his back like a tortoise, just in case.

Meanwhile, comedian Jamali Maddix declared that Jake is a proper ‘bad boy’, with his leather jacket completing the overall rebellious image.

So would you ever try two four-shot cappuccinos a day? Or is one coffee in the morning enough for you?

According to the British Heart Foundation, consuming around four to five cups of coffee a day ‘should be fine for most people’, the organisation’s dietitian Victoria Taylor said.

‘Research shows that this level of caffeine intake shouldn’t be detrimental to your heart health, affect your cholesterol levels or heart rhythm,’ her advice continued.

‘Although drinking coffee has been shown to increase blood pressure, this effect is usually temporary and is minimised over time if you drink caffeinated drinks regularly.’

Never Mind The Buzzcocks airs tonight at 9pm on Sky Max.
