She explained to Alex and Matt of the new series: “We learnt an awful lot. We had a journey ourselves.
“We had to look up some of the stuff, it was hysterical.”
She then added: “In fact we had to ask Nadiya quite a few things of the Indian lot because we didn’t know some of the spices.”
The comment sparked fury with viewers at home, who rushed to social media to slam the star.

Taking to Twitter, one person fumed: “Rosemary Shrager… you are a disgrace.”
With another posting: “Did she just say ‘the Indian lot?'”
“Watching The One Show and waiting for Rosemary Shrager to make another racist faux pas. Age cannot be an excuse,” added a third.
