Holly Willoughby, 39, and Phillip Schofield, 59, took a trip back into the past to begin This Morning by each being given a plate of foods such a potato smiley faces and Turkey Twizzlers. It was the latter food item the mother-of-three had never clapped her eyes on before and she was quite disturbed by the shape of the meaty product. As a result, she told ITV bosses she would not be eating the product as her co-star got stuck in.
Phillip explained they were doing the segment after a restaurant in Swansea had gone viral on Facebook for a box of 90s themed food which is available for delivery.
As the host tried to continue with his explanation to viewers, Holly interrupted him as she was fascinated by the Turkey Twizzlers.
“Can I just say, I’ve heard a lot about [them] in the news, I didn’t realise that it looked like that,” she said as she precariously held up one of the meaty products.
“Look at it. What part of a turkey does that come from? It’s not right,” the mother-of-three declared as she quickly put it down.
As her co-star asked her to have a taste, she replied there was “no way” she was going to eat one live on air.
“I’m not eating that. It makes me feel a bit icky,” the presenter continued as her co-host happily tucked in.
Holly added: “It smells like hotdogs in here and there’s not even a hot dog on the plate. It looks like a battered pig’s tail.”
Phillip jumped in to offer an apology for what Holly had been saying as he said because they were clearly still in production, she should feel bad for “dissing” them.
Taking to social media, those viewers watching at home could not believe the mother-of-three had ever seen, let alone eaten the product.
The mother-of-three has often spoken about her home eating habits, most notably in a segment with chef Angela Hartnett, 52, last year.
Back in June of 2019, the Best Home Cook judge was making a summer pasta dish and was telling the presenters how they could cheat the rules of making it.
However, the world-renowned culinary star explained she would only ever stick to tradition when it came to making pizza.
Talking about the toppings she would use, the guest said: “You know what, I’m authentic about pizza. I don’t believe in pineapple on pizza, I think it’s wrong.”
