Phil Vickery 'storms off' This Morning after Eamonn Holmes insults his soup

PHIL Vickery "stormed off" This Morning after Eamonn Holmes insulted his soup.

The celebrity chef, 59, appeared on Wednesday's show to cook a veggie soup live from a pumpkin farm.

Hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes were able to try their own version in the studio – and even mopped it up with a chunk of bread.

However, once they'd finished, Phil said: "It [pumpkin] tastes like squash. Have you had squash Eamonn?"

Eamonn suggested the chef was talking about orange squash, leading Phil to reply: "I knew when I said that it as a waste of time."

Then the This Morning presenter turned to his wife and said: "You know when you look at a menu in a restaurant and you think, 'I don't think I'll like that' – basically all soups tastes the same."

Ruth jabbed back: "What are you talking about? How can mushroom soup taste like pumpkin soup?"

He replied: "Put a bit of pepper on it and it all tastes the same."

Ruth tried to apologise to Phil, but he'd already jokingly stormed off at Eamonn's comments.

She said: "Phil I'm so sorry, the man's a philistine what can I say?"

Luckily the chef returned later in the episode to cook the husband and wife duo a pumpkin risotto.
