THIS Morning fans were left horrified today when chef Juliet Sear suggested viewers put CHEESE in their mince pies.

The controversial suggestion came as she shared a recipe that fans can freeze, with the bizarre savoury addition put forward as a serving idea.

Juliet Sear had a novel serving suggestion for her festive treats

She added CHEESE to her mince pie

Having served up the festive treats, Josie Gibson - who stepped in for poorly Holly Willoughby as host today - said to Juliet: ...We spoke earlier, and you said about adding cheese?!...

And the food whizz was incredibly keen to share her creation, explaining: ...You love cream, but you can have anything with it - I like doing the old cheese sandwich.

...Prepare to be blown away. I make a cheese sandwich for this, so with a nice clonk of Lancashire cheese… because 'the filling ' is like a chutney....

Bizarrely, both Josie and Phillip Schofield were on board after giving it a try.

Josie gasped: ...Never would I have thought adding cheese to a mince pie - it has opened a whole new world for me....

Phil agreed: ...I tell you what, that cheese is really lovely - there has been a revelation here today!...

But viewers at home were less than convinced, and took to Twitter to share their shock at the suggestion.

One wrote: ...Although @JulietSear_ is correct that Lancashire is the king of cheeses, please don't go putting a lump of cheese and some clotted cream in a mince pie. That's not right....

Another added: ...Mince pies should be eaten with….other mince pies, definitely not cheese!...

A third said: ...It just gets worse. Cheese in a mince pie!...

This was the second day that Josie had stepped in for Holly, with Holly explaining on Instagram that she'd been forced to stay at home due to a sickness bug.

Phil was on board with the idea
