Dawn French has revealed the controversial way she likes to enjoy beans on toast - and it’s probably not what you’d expect.

The comedian and all-round national treasure was a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK on Thursday (4 March) when she revealed her love for the controversial ingredient.

One of the queens, Tayce, was explaining to judge Michelle Visage why ketchup was the perfect condiment to accompany baked beans.

“Honestly Michelle it’s a game changer, I’m telling you now,” explained Tayce. “It really really is. The butter, it brings that savoury, you bring in the sweetness with the ketchup, I’m telling you, go home and try it tonight it’ll blow your minds.”

Dawn agreed: “For what it’s worth, the way to build baked beans as far as i’m concerned is white bread, butter, the beans, usually a whole tin, sprinkled with cheddar cheese, and this is the rebel bit - salad cream.”

Michelle and fellow judge Alan Carr looked disgusted and made retching noises, while RuPaul laughed.

Tayce agreed the combo was a "game changer", to which Dawn issued a battle cry of, "Bring it on!" There's nothing we like to see more than a bit of passion for a preferred condiment.

It's not the first time Dawn has flirted with controversial toppings - with her staunch jam-first stance on scones, she courted controversy on a very delicate subject.

“What I would say is: butter is optional, but if you’re going to use butter, it goes first,” she explained in an interview last year. “Then the jam, then the cream. That’s it. The big mistake is to think that cream is butter.

“Jam is for spreading, cream – and it’s got to be clotted cream – is the dollop. It’s the crown. If you do it the other way, I genuinely find it offensive! I just do. I’ve got into a bit of a Twitter war with certain people about it.”

The Salad Cream Revelation is going to be a wild ride, isn't it?
