Steph McGovern has admitted that she got ripped off recently when she was dining out earlier this week.
The TV presenter made the admission during her Channel 4 daytime show Steph’s Packed Lunch on Thursday.
The 39-year-old spoke to fellow guests on the show including model and radio presenter Vogue Williams and comedian Dane Baptise about the incident.
She revealed that she was dining out and because she is on a health kick she thought she would try this new drink.
Steph didn’t name the brand of the drink or the restaurant where she dined out that day.
However, she admitted that it wasn’t until the bill arrived that she was hit with £60 just for “three soft drinks.”
The business journalist and Channel 4 star said she didn’t even have any alcohol with her meal as she was driving and had no choice but to cough up the money.
The topic came up when the panel were discussing overpriced food and the recent news surrounding Salt Bae – a Turkish chef and restaurateur who rose to fame on social media.

Salt Bae, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe has a chain of luxury steak houses and recently opened up one in London’s Mayfair.
However, the chef has faced recent criticism over the prices of his food.
One customer of his restaurant posted a receipt of the bill with an eye-popping £630 just for one steak.
Meanwhile, eye-eagled fans also noticed that it had cost that customer £9 for a can of coke and £12 for a can of Red Bull.

However, they did manage to bag some Turkish tea for free at Salt Bae’s new restaurant.
This had led to model and wife of Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, Vogue Williams, admitted she thought she ordered steak for a table of six for £200.
But it ended up coming to £800 instead while they were dining out on holiday in St Barts.
Vogue went on to say that it had “make her feel sick” at the thought of paying that much for food.
