TIM Lovejoy was forced to step in on Sunday Brunch after chef Max Halley made a disastrous kitchen blunder on air.
Presenters Tim and Miquita Oliver were joined by guests Nina Wadia, Simon Callow and Mia McKenna-Bruce for the latest episode of the Channel 4 chat show.
Cooking his speciality dish parmo, chef Max made a hygiene mistake which Tim had to correct.
After beating the slab of meat with a rolling pin, Tim asked Max where he had come up with his dishes and creative ingredients for his parmo.

"You have chopped your garlic on a red board which has had meat on it, and you are not allowed to do that. If you would like to get rid of your red board."
Confused as to what he had done wrong, Max asked: "Really? I'll get rid of this, I'll put this over here, shall I?"
Tim asked the behind-the-scenes crew: "Can we get him some more garlic?"
Some fans were in agreement with Tim and praised him for correcting Max.
Taking to Twitter, one person penned: "Well done, Tim. The chef should have known better."
Echoing their comments, someone else said: "Well done to Tim for stepping in for the professional chef to educate him on the different chopping boards."
While a third chanted: "That chef is getting sacked in the morning, sacked in the morning."

For Sunday Brunch, it wasn't the first time that a hygiene issue occurred as, back in February, fans were furious at Michael O'Hare for his lack of hygiene.
Many fans of the show felt sickened he hadn't tied his long hair up or pushed it back whilst he was cooking.
Sunday Brunch airs at 9:30am on Channel 4 every Sunday.
