THOSE who tuned into Help! We Bought A Village were all saying the same thing about the guests' definition of a vegetarian.

Mick and Julie are the owners of a French village and host the local council at their restaurant in the Channel 4 property show.

In the episode, the couple spend their first Christmas in their hamlet, and the very first guests arrive at a cave village in Andalucía.

But viewers were very distracted by a blunder when fish was put on a vegetarian menu.

Julie caters for her non meat-eater guests by defrosting and serving fish.

Taking to Twitter, one angry viewer said: "They do know eating fish isn't being a vegetarian. #HelpWeBoughtAVillage put non meat items on menu."

Another wrote: "#HelpWeBoughtAVillage 'We're vegetarian.' 'How about fish & chips?' Not vegetarian then."

A third penned: "Vegetarians don’t eat fish…..pescatarians do #HelpWeBoughtAVillage."

However, some fans were left amused by the chaos as one commented: "The kitchen antics today were hilarious."

The new tv series follows people who have bought entire villages or hamlets abroad.

Help! We Bought a Village airs weekdays at 4pm on Channel 4.
