"We have been trying to develop a vegan version of our famous sausage roll for some time now".

True-to-from, Morgan offered up an unsolicited opinion, calling Greggs "PC-ravaged clowns".

Vegans in Tayside have called on Greggs to bring their controversial meat-free sausage rolls to the region after it emerged that local outlets would not be stocking the product. The petition was signed by more than 20,000 people.

"One fan wrote: "@GreggsOfficial you have definitely won this battle".

To spite Greggs, the TV host also added: "Just ordered a large sausage roll on room service".

Another said: "I'm going to buy a vegan sausage roll tomorrow for two reasons. 1". A meat one. Real meat.

The chain bakery launched a vegan sausage roll in 950 stores yesterday, including in Edinburgh and Glasgow - however, Dundee, Perth and other towns across Tayside and Fife missed out.

The new roll has been created to mirror some of the sausage roll's classic features including 96 layers of light and crisp puff pastry but instead we wrap it around our own bespoke Quorn filling.

A Greggs store in Chesterfield has been criticised for not having any hotly-anticipated vegan sausage rolls.
