An American woman has gone viral on TikTok over the ‘hilarious’ way she pronounces Greggs.
Gabrielle Marcellus recently took to the social media platform and shared a clip of herself declaring her love for the British bakery chain when the mishap happened.
Addressing her viewers, she said: “Guys, one of my favourite places to go is this place called G R Eggs.
“If you’re looking for a really great place for breakfast in England, then go to this place called G R Eggs.”
Hilariously, the TikToker was then interrupted by a passerby who kindly informed her that it’s actually pronounced ‘Greggs’.
Since being shared, the clip has amassed a whopping 4.4million views and thousands of Brits have taken to the comments to say it left them in hysterics.
One viewer said: “It literally is all together and says Greggs. Are you okay?”
Another added: “You did not just pronounce Greggs like that… I am hurt right now.”
A third person questioned: “What in your brain separates the GR from eggs? I’m just not getting it lol.”
Joining in, Co-op even commented and said: “There’s no hope for us then.”

After the clip went viral, Marcellus took to TikTok once again and explained why she calls it G R Eggs.
Recalling a trip to London she had with a boyfriend in 2018, she said: “I found this one place, way back there that was called G R Eggs. He was like ‘What?’ I was like: ‘Yeah, it’s called G R Eggs,’ and he was like: ‘What, show me, show me’. So I literally went and I showed him this place and he was like ‘Greggs?’.
“I don’t know why but for some reason I saw the word ‘eggs’ and ‘G R’ and I swore it was ‘G R Eggs’. It’s definitely not.
“I know it’s called Greggs but it’s such a funny story and it’s a running joke with me and my friends from the UK. I never refer to it as Greggs because to me it’s always G R Eggs.”
