TV cook Simon Rimmer made an appearance on the Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show to promote his new podcast Grilling. During his stint on the airwaves, the Sunday Brunch star was surprised to learn about Virgin Radio star Gaby Roslin’s fondness for a strange ice cream topping.
This led the shocked 58-year-old to light-heartedly ask the 57-year-old presenter if she was pregnant, as expectant mothers are known for their strange food cravings.
Simon made his comments after the conversation turned to pickled ice cream.
Gaby was on today’s show with Sam Pinkham to stand in for regular host Chris.
She said the unlikely ingredients were “good together”.

A stunned Simon simply replied: “What?”
“It works!” the host insisted.
“Gaby, are you pregnant?” the former Strictly star went on to ask.

“No, I’m really not, I promise you. Been there, done that. Seriously not,” she assured the TV star.
“But seriously,” she continued, “pickles and ice cream. And they are now making picked ice cream.”
“Wow,” the flabbergasted star replied.
