Host Christine Lampard asked: “What are you munching on?”
Miriam said: “Well I was told you wanted me to show that I really do eat onions like apples.
“So I am!”
Christine said: “There are lots of health benefits, but actually it’s not that you’re doing it for the health benefits at all Miriam, you do it because you enjoy it.”
Miriam replied: “Mmm it’s so tasty.”
Speaking about the smell of onions staying on your breath, Miriam said: “Anyone can have bad breath, it’s not just to do with onions.”
While many viewers loved seeing Miriam chomp on an onion, others weren’t happy.
One person said: “Eurgh! I’ve just walked back in, with my lunch, to see Miriam Margolyes chomping on a raw onion with her mouth open.”
Another agreed: “Revolting.”
A third added: “Just had to turn @loosewomen off. Why invite that woman to be a guest?
“Raw onion as a snack? Why does that not surprise me.”
Another tweeted: “Why is Miriam eating while being interviewed?!?!”
However, another tweeted: “Love Miriam a real person – agree so much with her.”
One said: “@loosewomen who doesn’t love @MMargolyes, she is so funny and eating a whole raw onion.”
Another added: “Miriam is hilarious and doesn’t give a [expletive].”
