Spot the faux pas

I was watching 'Restaurant in Our Living Room' the other night and I think I spotted someone committing a faux pas during a dinner between the competing couples.

See if you can spot it.

So, in the middle of dinner, one half of the competing couples turns to one side and covers her mouth. Maybe to cough? In which case, that's fine, turning your head away is good manners.

But wait, what's this spewing out from between her fingers?...Is it...sick?

Now obviously, whilst throwing up isn't the best thing to do at the dinner table, this isn't the faux pas. She can't help it if she is overcome by nausea. However...

After wiping her mouth with the back of her hand she turns back to face her fellow diners, and her boyfriend (whose facial expression says it all) asks her whether she needs a minute, or should go to the toilet.

She says "No, my dinner will get cold" and with that picks up her knife and fork and carries on eating (cue another excellent facial expression)

I don't know about you, but I've only ever seen one other person do that: Mr Creosote
