The dish consisted of six slices of toast, two eggs, two black puddings, three sausages, baked beans, a hash brown, bacon, mushroom and tomaotes.

Not taking criticism for an amateur cook, Gordon quipped back ‘That’s called a Full English Classic Heart Attack you idiot sandwich’.

Not happy: Fans were quick to question the size of Gordon’s meal, with many upset the dish had no hash browns

The phrase is a reference to a sketch Gordon acted in on the Late Late show with James Corden in 2016.

In the sketch – dubbed Hell’s Cafeteria, a parody of his own show Hell’s Kitchen – Gordon holds two pieces of bread either side of TV host’s Julie Chen head and calls her an ‘idiot sandwich’.

The photo has since become viral meme, and Gordon has revealed he’s often asked by fans to re-enact the scene.
