I was doing the News Review, with Petrie Hosken, on ITV’s THIS MORNING at 10.30 today and the final item was a picture of a ready meal of Steak and Chips in which a lady had found a dead bird. ‘What do you think of that then?’ chirruped Eamonn Holmes. Quick as a flash, I responded: ‘Was it a Birds Eye meal?’ Much laughter all round. And I promise I hadn’t rehearsed it.
Anyway, I’ve just got the train back to Tonbridge and picked up an Evening Standard. This is the main headline on the front page…
BIRDS EYE MEALS HIT BY HORSE MEAT FEAR
I think they should call me ‘Mystic Meg’. I’ve been called worse.
