“Talk about unnecessary travel, disgusting.”

Another asked: “@thismorning is biking fried chicken into central London an essential journey?”

“It’s non essential travel and needs your investigation asap! I await your reply!”

“Totally essential travel: chicken on a bike. Pathetic,” someone else commented.

While Holly and Phil waited for their delivery, the celebrity chef demonstrated how viewers could make their own KFC-style dish.

He told Holly: “It’s perfectly cooked, it’s rested… Holly, there’s eight pieces, just check when he gets there.”
