Phillip Schofield gets a roasting after eating a guinea pig in Peru

Phillip Schofield has been slammed by fans after he posted a picture of his dinner on Twitter

It appears Phillip Schofield’s love of rodents now extends to eating them after the ‘This Morning’ host tucked into a guinea pig during a trip to Peru.

Phillip faced a Twitter backlash when he tweeted a photo of the ‘very tasty’ roasted creature, with a lot of his followers branding him ‘cruel’.

However, the TV presenter defended his dinnertime choice as guinea pigs are a major part of Peruvians’ diet, and blasted people who were berating him on the social networking site!
