One said: "Feedback on Percy muffin is negative from me I'm afraid – had one today and it tasted falsely flavoured and left a nasty aftertaste."

It's not the first time Percy has caused controversy.

Back in the spring, M&S changed the recipe to make all the sweets vegetarian, and some said the taste changed, too.
