Jeremy Vine viewers divided as Greggs pasty debate takes explosive turn | The Sun

JEREMY Vine viewers have slammed Cornish pasty maker hitting out at Greggs for opening a store in Cornwall.

Cornish pasty maker Fergus Muller says "Cornish people won't take kindly to it."


The Jeremey Vine On 5 tweeted a statement from Fergus saying: "The ethos of Greggs isn't ingredients from the Cornish land to our plates."

They added: "Cornish pasty maker Fergus Muller has hit out at @GreggsOfficial after the chain announced a high-street store in Cornwall. He says Cornish people won't take kindly to it."

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Big fuss over nothing. It’s called healthy competition. Don’t like Greggs? Don’t use it. Let people make their own mind up."

Another penned: "Why are they even bothering considering that everyone in the area owns a cafe. They're not even cheap at Greggs so a cafe will cost as much for a lunchtime crowd.

"It'd work if it's a development centre for new ranges of Cornish pasties especially using vegetarian products."

A third said: "A bit of competition, and they sell more than just pasties, do you sell your pasties out of Cornwall? And compete with other retailers."

This come after Jeremy Vine viewers have slammed Joe Lycett as "reckless" after he "shredded" £10,000 in protest of David Beckham’s £10 million deal with Qatar.

The comedian, 34, put his money where his mouth is by destroying the currency after Beckham refused to pull out of his World Cup ambassador role.

Many fans were unimpressed that the star destroyed wads of cash amid the cost-of-living crisis, unaware that the "shredded" money was in fact fake.

In a clip posted to his Twitter page, Lycett threw two large bundles of £5 notes into a woodchipper, leaving a shredded bundle of money on the floor before walking away.

Discussing the controversial move on the Channel 5 show, Jeremy Vine fans raced to Twitter to share their input on the matter.

One angry fan wrote: "I noticed Nina Myscow agreeing with Joe Lycett destroying £10000 for his own publicity on #JeremyVine. She is such a hypocrite ..always saying how the poor are suffering under The Tories. The money should have gone to charity ..no doubt about it."

However, Joe updated fans and said that the money that came out of the shredder was in fact fake.

He shared a video on social media and said: "This is my final message to David Beckham, it's me that pr*** that shredded loads of money in a cost-of-living crisis.

"I told you I was going to destroy £10,000 if you didn't end your relationship with Qatar before the first day of the World Cup.

"And then when you didn't end your relationship or even respond in any way, I streamed myself dropping £10k into a shredder.

"Or did I?

"I haven't quite told you the whole truth, the money that went into the shredder was real, but the money that came out was fake.

"I would never destroy real money; I would never be that irresponsible.

"In fact, the ten grand had already been donated to the LGBTQ+ charities before I ever pressed send on the initial threat last week."

The star added that it was an "empty threat" designed to get people talking.
