He wrote on Twitter: “Would you believe it, pulled onto the services to snack on my French chicken leftovers and right in front of me my favourite @KFC_UKI,” along with a picture of him snacking and the firm’s distinctive red and white sign.

But his dining decision left a little bit of a sour taste for KFC bosses who jokingly responded: “Ah Paul. We're not angry, we're just disappointed,” to the star’s tweet.

However, the Rotherham entertainer was soon back on good terms, replying: “Luckily enough there’s been a @KFC_UKI built near me .. just saw it yesterday,” along with a thumbs up emoji.

It’s not clear if Paul’s snack was a leftover from a meal cooked up by showbiz pal, actor Adam Woodyatt, who plays Ian Beale in BBC soap EastEnders.

The pair are good friends and the day before Paul’s stop-off outside a KFC, the soap star wrote: “Tonight’s dinner is a work in progress for my mate @PaulChuckle2 who hates fish other than kippers or battered cod. By Christmas I’ll get him to try it.”

A case of to me, to chew, perhaps?
