Gregg Wallace and John Torode have to have breaks from filming 'Masterchef' because they laugh too much at their dirty jokes.
The culinary judges admit they have a lot of banter when it comes to describing contestants' food because of all the "double entendres".
Gregg said: "The trouble is food does lend itself to double entendres. Sometimes we have to stop filming because of all the giggling.
"Imagine ... 'greasing the rim' and 'sausage' and 'pork in cider'.
"We even see the camera rigs going up and down because the crews are laughing so much."
While John and Gregg love hosting the BBC One show, they admit it's hard work having to taste all the contestants' food.
Speaking on an episode of Alan Carr's 'Chatty Man' - which will be screened tonight (22.03.13) - John said: "Our record is 46 dishes in one day. There are times when you really don't feel very well."
They also denied being food snobs and insists they get just as much pleasure form junk food as they do from a gourmet meal.
Gregg added: "I have never understood why the love of roast quail would exclude the love of Big Mac."
