THIS Morning viewers were left shocked today as a man appeared on the show with the world’s largest potato.
The huge spud, which weighs more than twice as much as an average newborn baby, has been nicknamed ‘Doug’ and is currently undergoing DNA checks to prove it really is a potato.

Taking to Twitter, viewers all ended up saying the same thing, with one writing: “That’s not a potato, that’s his lifetimes collection of earwax by the look of it Nauseated face#thismorning.”
Another added: “@thismorning the potato looks like a haemorrhoid!!!! #MashedPiles #WorldsBiggestPotato #ThisMorning.”
While someone else wrote: “@thismorning #ThisMorning That #potato makes me feel really sick.”
