Saturday Kitchen host told to move on by TV bosses after tense food hell chat

Saturday Kitchen live host Matt Tebbutt and Nick Grimshaw argued "the news can wait" after things got heated when the former radio host shared his controversial food hell.

During BBC Breakfast, broadcaster Naga Munchetty threw the show over to the hugely popular morning cooking show as she introduced the upcoming show.

But it didn’t take long before all chaos ensued after the 48-year-old broadcaster welcomed the music aficionado onto the show to talk about his food heaven and food hell.

Nick explained that one of his most hated foods is a fish stick because of the “rubbery, fishy texture” which always makes his stomach turn.

Much to the disappointment of his celebrity guest, Matt argued that the salty snack are the perfect thing to eat while driving a car.

It was at this point that the presenter admitted: “They’re telling me to move on, but no – forget the news, hang on” before he argued his case further live on air.

But the former radio presenter was having none of it as he demanded that the seafood snack should be as “illegal” as using your phone in the car.

He fumed: “A fish stick in the car should be illegal, like that should be like using a phone in the car. Illegal. No fish sticks, no phones.”

And he wasn’t alone in sharing his hatred for fish sticks, after wine expert Helen McGin admitted she would search for a wine that would “mask the flavour.”

He asked the expert: “What would go with a fish stick?” to which she honestly replied: “Something to mask the taste” as the studio erupted into laughter.

Following the backlash in the studio, Matt turned to the viewers at home to send in their responses for the love of the savoury treat.

He chuckled: “Rude, very rude. Those people out there who love a fish stick should get in touch, there’s a lot more than me.”

The TV hunk eventually threw the show back to the morning newsreaders, but Naga couldn’t help but make one last veiled dig at his expense after sharing his new favourite food on air.

Naga quipped: “It says a lot when Helen tries to make wine that masks the taste of your food, doesn’t it?” as Matt snapped back with: “That’s not what she said!”
