Saturday Night Takeaway Sparks Big Scone Debate

The great scone argument just won't go away!
Viewers were left divided on Saturday Night Takeaway last night after a quiz posed the big question: Should the jam or the cream go first?
Audience member Vearl was the lucky contestant picked to play Win The Ads but she was left stumped when Ant asked her how the National Trust believe a true Cornish scone should be eaten.

Despite having a load of top prizes in the bag, including a luxury holiday to Barbados, Vearl decided to gamble after the live St Patrick's Day crowd urged her on.
A long-standing argument in English heritage, sadly for Vearl her guess of cream first was declared incorrect, seeing her lose her luxury holiday to Barbados.

Viewers took to Twitter to angrily air their opinions.
And somehow we don't think this debate will go away any time soon!

Last question on Win The Ads of #SaturdayNightTakeaway was on how the National Trust messed up the way a true Cornish scone should look like.— Mia Sapphire (@Sapphi_ria_FF) March 17, 2018
Honestly, why on earth would we put cream on first? We don't want the cream and jam dripping down our chins after one bite now do we?
