She later added: "I should also let you know that if you don’t have Seville oranges, the recipe also gives the option of using the juice of regular eating oranges and limes.

"Plus, the curd filling is fabulous just on bread or a sandwich a cake."

One supporter replied: "Is there any *particular* reason for a "bitter orange tart", today of all days?"
