The series has seen Alfie try a variation of foods and have breakthroughs with things such as pasta with pesto and halloumi.

But not everything has gone down such a treat, as he wasn’t a fan of a McDonalds burger, or Dairylea cheese triangles.

In her most recent video, Maisi got her boyfriend a single cheeseburger from McDonalds, taking out all of the ingredients other than the meat, cheese and ketchup.

‘I am so nervous, when we first started doing these videos I always said the big one would be a burger. I’ve always wanted to eat a burger, it looks cathartic, there’s a certain romance to eating a burger which I have never experienced,’ explained Alfie. 

Maisi watched on nervously as he took a bite and had some hope as she said: ‘You’re chewing, chewing is good,’ but quickly changed her tune as he turned away from the camera to spit the burger out. 

‘OK guys, I think you will have seen, that’s probably a no,’ she told viewers. 

But all wasn’t lost, as Aflie then tried another bite with more ketchup and managed to swallow it this time, with the pair making progress. 

Speaking out on his struggles, Maisi has previously explained: ‘It’s something he’s struggled with all his life and has been really tricky. I think picky would be putting it lightly.’

Speaking on Angela Scanlon’s Thanks A Million podcast, Jo mused: ‘I do jokes about my husband and I get people say to me, “Oh, why don’t you just divorce him then?” That was a joke. You know, I don’t know.

‘I think one day I will just have to put a photo of me on Instagram, actually trying to kill him. So, yeah. To satisfy all those people that want me to do it.’

In 2021, she spoke candidly about her own body image, admitting she doesn’t think she’s pretty, adding she isn’t ‘what men go for’ as she’s ‘not thin’ with ‘flowing locks’.

Yet despite her comments, Jo insisted that she ‘doesn’t dislike’ the way she looks.

She explained: ‘I think the thing is, it’s a very weird thing that if you’re absolutely gorgeous, then you don’t really get any sense of how it feels to be desperate. 

‘Obviously, I’m not saying that happens all the time, but I think also if you’re kind of like me, I don’t dislike the way that I look. But I know that I’m not pretty.

‘I know that I’m not what men go for because I’m not thin and I don’t have, like, long flowing locks and and lovely eyelashes and all that b******s.’

She continued: ‘And so, you know, it’s very hard for really attractive women to understand the mental state of not so attractive women and the other way round. 

‘So I would say as a teenager, I got quite a lot of knock backs, but also kind of like horrible ones, not them really meaning to be horrible, but just them being so dismissive. 

‘And when you’re really keen on someone to be dismissed as a teenage girl, it’s pretty hard work, emotionally.’ 

The Clapham-born actor also spoke out about her dry jokes, saying that many performers become exaggerated parts of themselves when they’re on stage.

She has been known to jokingly make comments like, ‘I hate men,’ or, ‘Let’s kill them all,’ in order to draw a reaction from the crowd.

However, her on-stage persona becomes an issue when the public begin to think that’s how she really is.
