He added, not a slice, but a “wedge” of butter to the already calorific treat, joking that the admission was likely to cause viewers to send letters into the show.
“This is how you eat [fried bread],” James informed the audience at home, before adding, “Can’t believe I’m doing this on TV.”
“I’m going to get so many letters… of support,” he added as the crew giggled off camera.
Saturday Morning continues today on ITV at 9.30am.
