Sorry, back in the room.

Nobody is close yet... thought it would be simple. Obviously far too obtuse and maybe just a little silly  :). Will give a clue in the morning.

Right answer, wrong solution..

My thinking was more along the lines of bean eaten  which gives pea ate

Sorry. Guess it was a bit silly!
