Piers Morgan Refuses To Try Greggs Vegan Steak Bake On Good Morning Britain

by | January 8, 2020

Piers Morgan used his first appearance of 2020 on UK TV show Good Morning Britain to blast the new Greggs vegan steak bake — labelling it “a con.”

“It’s not a steak,” said Morgan, “a steak is a cut of meat or fish, it’s not vegan or vegetarian.”

“They should not be using meat terminology to sell non-meat products.”

When asked if he would try a steak bake, Morgan refused, repeating that “it is not meat..it’s a total con…you lot are all falling for it.”

The presenter ended his bizarre rant by stating that the pastry will likely sell well because the UK “has become a nation of lemmings.”

During the morning breakfast show, Morgan also shared his offence to the wildly popular vegan sausage roll from Greggs, claiming it “has more calories than a McDonalds cheeseburger.”

The new plant-based pastry from Greggs was launched last week to coincide with Veganuary.

On sale for £1.55, the steak bake features 96 layers of thin puff pastry, with a Quorn filling mixed with onions and gravy.

“We’ve been working tirelessly to expand our vegan-friendly offering,” said Roger Whiteside, Chief Executive of Greggs, “and provide more delicious savoury food on-the-go options for people looking to reduce their meat intake.”

Due to the continued success of the sausage roll, Greggs will share a £7 million bonus among its 25,000 employees this month.
