Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

This Morning host Eamonn Holmes branded a viewer "perverted" during a debate about bizarre toast toppings.

Husband and wife duo Eamonn and Ruth Langsford were back on our screens on Tuesday to present the latest edition of the ITV daytime show.

As usual, the couple discussed the latest headlines hitting the news across the world.

It has been revealed that Mars chocolate bar has been turned into a toast topping and sandwich filler to take on big hitters like Nutella and Cadbury.

Eamonn and Ruth both got to try out the new sweet treat and asked viewers for their favourite toast topping.

One fan wrote in to tell the pair that they liked "brown sauce and strawberry jam on toast".

A horrified Eamonn, 61, said he could only describe the choice as "perverted".

He said: "Oh no! That's perverted. There's no other word for that. Brown sauce and strawberry jam? Sicko."

Viewers rushed to their keyboards to discuss the segment, and share their favourite spreads.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Ruth and Eamon making all them noises while eating a bite of toast on #ThisMorning has knocked me ill."

Another added: "Talking about what you like to spread on your toast? Defo a slow day today."

A third person posted: "I wish to god they’d turn Eamonn’s mic off when he’s eating. I can’t stand noisy eaters."

While a fourth social media user said: "@thismorning @EamonnHolmes @RuthieeL Shredded boiled bacon and cabbage on toast."

It comes after Eamonn was left red-faced after making a name blunder during Monday's show.

He struggled to pronounce Coronation Street's character Tyrone Dobbs' name as he introduced an interview with one of the soap's stars.

Realising his mistake, Eamonn told Ruth he'd accidentally pronounced the name as though it was County Tyrone in Northern Ireland – the country where he is from.

Telling viewers about an upcoming interview with Corrie Jennie McAlpine, the host said: "It's the break up which has rocked the cobbles, but is there still hope for Fiz and Tyrone?"

The name is correctly pronounced "Tai-rone", but Eamonn said it: "T-rone".

Ruth then read her line, with Eamonn looking flustered as he chuckled and asked: "I just said 'T-rone' there, is it Tyrone or T-rone?"

His wife corrected: "Tyrone", with Eamonn explaining: "In Northern Ireland it's T-rone, it's interesting – I mentioned the country instead of the name there; he's Tyrone from T-rone!"

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10am
