The fast-food chain took out there a full page ad in the Sun plus Metro newspapers which shows a clear bucket of chicken with breadcrumbs spilling out.

Rather than having KFC logo on the side, the particular letters have been switched around to learn “FCK”.

The string was forced to close hundreds of shops this week following a problem with its poultry supplier.

Almost seven hundred of its 900 UK outlets have considering that reopened .
