Those who were tuned in to the latest episode of Kelvin's Big Farming Adventure were left rethinking their diets after watching the actor serve the family lamb to his children for dinner.
Watch the moment here:
In the BBC series, the former soap actor and his family have been challenged with running a farm after running away to the Peak District.
With no former farming experience, Kelvin and his wife Liz soon find themselves with a long list of jobs to bring the farm back to life, with the help of their next-door neighbour Gilly.
But the documentary series quickly lost its charm on Monday night when the 38-year-old took the family's 'pet' lamb to the slaughterhouse.
Before he set off with the darling family lamb, Kelvin's wife Liz said: "That's the hardest part of farming really. They're not pets and we have to make that decision."
After it was killed, the lamb's carcass was presented to Kelvin, and the former Strictly winner quickly overcame his heartbreak and asked if he could take a leg of it home for dinner.
Returning home, Kelvin shows his five-year-old daughter Marnie the lamb's remains, telling her: "What do you think? Can you believe that was your lamb?"
Later in the episode, the family are seen tucking in to a hearty lamb dinner - but some viewers couldn't quite stomach it.
"This make me want to be vegetarian. Horrible 😪😪 #kelvinsbigfarmingadventure" tweeted one upset viewer.
"Could never be a farmer not vegie [sic] or nothing but that’s heartbreaking 😔#KelvinsBigFarmingAdventure" wrote another.
A third distraught viewer added: "How could you Kelvin 😢 #KelvinsBigFarmingAdventure"
One vegetarian viewer tweeted: "Think we should all think about meat consumption after that #KelvinsBigFarmingAdventure #veggie"
While a pescatarian added: "Really felt the lamb story tonight on Kelvin's Big Farming Adventure #pescatarian"
Others weren't as phased by the scene, arguing that it was all part of the farming experience.
One tweeted: "I dont understand why people are moaning. It's a farm. What did they expect 🤷♀️"
Kelvin's Big Farming Adventure continues on BBC One on Monday, 21st February at 8.30pm.
