Eamonn Holmes storms off of today’s This Morning after getting a savage telling off from Ruth Langsford.
The presenter was sampling the nation’s best fish and chips from another husband and wife duo.
Hungry Eamonn tucked into some of Krispies Fish and Chips’ finest grub after they beat nine other finalists to win the top title at the National Fish and Chip Awards.
As Tim and Kelly Barnes spoke about their victory, Eamonn poured salt and vinegar on his portion of chips.
The self-confessed chip "expert" then carried on conducting the interview while chomping on his lunch.
Eamonn and Ruth tried the nation’s best fish and chips
Ruth told her hubby off for speaking with his mouth full
When it finally got too much, Ruth said: "Sorry I can’t hear what you’re saying, you’ve got a mouth full of chips."
Phil Vickery burst out laughing, but quickly stopped when he realised Eamonn was not too pleased.
Annoyed Eamonn replied: "See that’s her attitude all the time. You hate to see me enjoying myself don’t you."
Reaffirming her point, Ruth said: "Don’t talk with your mouth full."
Eamonn was not very pleased
Sheepish Phil refused to get involved with the nonsense, while the chip shop owners quietly stood in the background.
At that point Eamonn decided enough was enough and shook Phil’s hand in an awkward moment.
"Ok, well done judge," he said, before adding: "See you later."
Ruth told her husband to "carry on and have your lunch" while she took over presenting duties.
"I’ve had enough now – see you after this," snapped Eamonn before waving goodbye to the camera.

This Morning viewers took to Twitter after spotting the awkward tension.
One viewer said: "Did Eamonn and Ruth have a ‘Mom and Dad’ fight during their Fish and Chips bit?!"
Another added: "Spat on air between Ruth and Eamonn over the fish and chips Eamonn was tucking into his fish and chips and she told him not to talk with his mouth full Eamonn has just walked off in a huff let him enjoy those gorgeous fish and chips Ruth"
A third said: "Oh dear Eamonn was just enjoying his fish and chips Ruth don’t be so mean to him telling him not to talk with his mouth full etc and on air too those fish and chips have got us all salivating let Eamonn enjoy his I think you have upset him now!"
