Ainsley Harriott screams 'you what?' at Sam Allardyce after cheeky gag with fans baffled to see pair on ITV cooking show | The SunAugust 1, 2023
FOOTBALL fans were left dumbfounded after seeing Ainsley Harriott and Sam Allardyce together on ITV.
Before the broadcaster's coverage of England's Women's World Cup clash versus China, Allardyce was seen on TV alongside Mark Pougatch while celebrity chef Ainsley cooked some steak.
During the show Ainsley, 66, asked Big Sam how he liked his steak cooked.
The former West Ham boss, who was also seen drinking from a wine glass at one point during his appearance, replied: "Just like that."
However, he then confessed that he was upset because there was no "Susie salt or Percy pepper".
In classic fashion, Ainsley then grabbed a pinch of salt and made a big gesture of seasoning the steak while yelling: "You what Sam, you what?"
