‘Appalling’ squirrel segment slammed

In other This Morning-related news, the show came under fire yesterday for an “appalling” segment on eating squirrels.

The Exmoor Squirrel Project is encouraging people to EAT grey squirrels in a bid to save the red squirrel from extinction.

During the debate, Phillip and Tom Swarbrick tucked into some squirrel risotto and buttermilk squirrel that Phil Vickery had prepared.

“If you gave me that, I wouldn’t know what it was,” Phillip said as he ate. “I mean it could be chicken, it could be a little bit of pork.”

Viewers were furious – something Phillip had earlier predicted.

“#Thismorning Really…squirrel…I won’t be watching, what’s next cat ?? Shameful,” one viewer tweeted. 

“Squirrel risotto? That’s appalling,” another said.
