Elsewhere, Carol recalled the moment she didn’t realise edamame beans looked the way they do during a dinner meeting with an ITV boss at the restaurant Nobu. 

The presenter said she smothered the dish in soy sauce and began eating the food item as a whole.

Explaining further, she said on her BBC Radio Wales show: “One of the bosses Harry took me to the poshest Japanese restaurant in the whole of the United Kingdom, which is called Nobu.

“So, I went and I ordered Edamame beans which are like little soya beans and they came like peas in a pod, but I didn’t realise.

“I thought because they came unopened, they looked like the pod but its like a very hairy pod.

“And I’m with the boss at ITV, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m doing this show and doing that show’.

“Instead of opening the pod, I put soy sauce all over it and started munching on the entire thing.”

Leaving her co-stars stunned, she added laughing: “Then you’re committed aren’t you.”
