GMB hosts accused of ‘scaremongering’ as they gag eating ‘no-deal Brexit food’

The Good Morning Britain presenters have been accused of ‘scaremongering’ over Brexit .

The hosts tucked into packets of freeze-dried food, claiming we may be forced to eat it if a no-deal Brexit leads to a food shortage.

Charlotte Hawkins was disgusted as she opened up her salmon and broccoli pasta and shouted: "Seriously – that’s never food."

While weather reporter Laura Tobin looked like she was going to be sick as she gagged after smelling her macaroni cheese.

Furious Good Morning Britain viewers claimed the presenters were ‘playing on fear’ as they slammed the ‘ridiculous’ segment.

"Oh Charlotte that looks really grim," admitted Kate.
