A third shared: "If there is only one Chausson Aux Pomme then respectfully sir, no."

Grant previously revealed the correct way to use cutlery.

Speaking in a video, he explained: “Ladies and gentlemen, please remember that when you are presented with a sandwich as beautiful as this, it can be quite substantial and we are not anacondas. 

“So therefore you pick up your knife and cut a little bit off and that bit is easier to manage.”

This is also the case for burgers. 

He explained: “When eating a burger we use a knife and fork.

“We never use our hands, unless, of course, you are Fred Flintstone.”
