Oh dear.

SOME PEOPLE FOUND last night’s Late Late a little difficult to watch.

Philip Boucher-Hayes appeared to chat about his show, What Are You Eating? (if you’re not familiar with it, it featured an exposé on chicken fillet rolls last month).

The journalist’s appearance included a demonstration on how sausages are made, live in studio.

Some people couldn’t handle it…

Basically, all sorts of everything goes into a sausage…


Including pig rectum, sodium tripolyphosphate, fat, salt, and a load of chemicals…


There was even a pig’s head on display…


The audience were disgusted
