Juliet said: “You can have anything with it [the mince pie]. I make a cheese sandwich for this, so with a nice clonk of Lancashire cheese…because [the filling] is like chutney.”

Juliet explained all of this as she cut a mince pie in half and placed a couple of slices of cheese in the middle. She then put the mince pie back together and took a bite.

The hosts of This Morning both had a go at making the cheese mince pie, and strangely enough, enjoyed it.

“Never would I have thought adding cheese to a mince pie – it has opened a whole new world for me,” Josie said.

Philip agreed with her.

He said: “I tell you what, that cheese is really lovely. There has been a revelation here today!”

What did This Morning viewers have to say?

This Morning viewers were less than convinced by the cheese mince pies however and took to Twitter to voice their disgust.

“Mince pies should be eaten…with other mince pies, definitely not cheese!” one viewer protested.

“Although [Juliet Sear] is correct that Lancashire cheese is the king of cheeses, please don’t go putting a lump of cheese and some clotted cream on your mince pie. That’s not right,” another This Morning fan bemoaned.

“It just gets worse,” a third This Morning viewer cried. “Cheese in a mince pie!”

Josie Gibson, 36, was stepping in for Holly Willoughby yet again on Wednesday. The 40-year-old presenter was off ill with a tummy bug.
