Watch: This Morning chef admits accidentally eating cat poo by accident
This Morning cook Juliet Sear has confessed she once accidentally ate cat faeces as a child.
Sear revealed: "When I was little my mum wasn't the best at housekeeping, we lived in kind of a crazy house. And I was doing Hide and Seek one day with my friend and I was under the bed and I was really excited when I found some Maltesers, about five or six."
She added: "But it was actually cat poo."
Willoughby covered her face in disgust and exclaimed: "Oh my God! That is so gross. I'll try and put that out of my mind when I eat that later."
Sear was demonstrating how to make 'no bake' flower shaped cakes with a sweet-filled centre for Mother's Day.
And she has not been put off by her experience, admitting: "I have quite a soft spot for Maltesers."
She added: "My dad will be watching this now he's been very unwell. So get well soon and thanks for the cat poo."
Sear is a professional baker and cookbook author. She is also the mother of three adult children, including 25-year-old actor George Sear, star of teen rom com series Love, Victor.
This Morning viewers were surprised in July 2022 when George joined his mum on the ITV show to make ice cream sandwiches and talk about series three of the show.
One tweeted:"Wait Juliet Sear is George Sear's mum? Never knew that lol."
Another said: "I wondered why Juliet's son George looked so familiar... George Sear is an actor."
Juliet is also mother to daughters Lydia and Ruby. They are both artists.
