This Morning viewers couldn’t hide their disgust when presented with two fishy recipes for jacket potatoes, with one person tweeting that a ‘line had been crossed’.
On Tuesday’s edition of This Morning, presenting duo Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were joined by chef Clodagh McKenna, who showed them how to make her versions of ‘pimped’ jacket potatoes.
The first jacket potato Clodagh gave to Eamonn and Ruth to taste was made with crème fraîche, flat leaf parsley and sea salt… in addition to being adorned with trout caviar.
While the couple seemed to like the taste of the unconventional dish, a number of viewers didn’t feel the same way.
Their dismay was heightened even more when Clodagh demonstrated how to make a fish pie jacket potato, complete with a fish mix and milk sauce and a prawn on top.
With several Twitter users expressing their preference for jacket potatoes with toppings such as baked beans and cheese, some of them couldn’t handle the idea of fish pie or caviar on a jacket potato.

‘Sorry Clodagh that looks disgusting,’ one person tweeted.
‘Fish pie on Jacket? What is this evilness,’ another viewer remarked.
Someone else tweeted incredulously: ‘Caviar on your jacket potatoes?!’, alongside a gif with the caption: ‘There’s the line and you just crossed it.’
‘Urgh you don’t put fish pie in a baked potato are you ill or something?’ one person commented.
‘Fish pie on a baked potato?? Say what now..???’ another added.
After presenting the jacket potato with caviar, Clodagh added that she’s made the recipe in the past for several notable individuals.
This included the mayor of New York, who Clodagh said enjoyed the dish while celebrating St Patrick’s Day in the Big Apple.
While This Morning viewers didn’t think much of fish pie in a jacket potato, last year a woman went viral for creating a fairly similar concoction.

Today marked the second consecutive This Morning Eamonn has hosted with Ruth since returning from hospital for treatment of his chronic pain.
On Monday’s programme, Eamonn revealed the cause of his chronic pain struggle, explaining that he recently hurt his back but ‘didn’t really do anything’ about it.
‘It got worse and worse and worse, and it turned into chronic pain,’ he said.
‘And basically, from the point of view that I literally could not sleep at night – night time was the absolute worst.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
