With more than 650 stores across Australia, KFC is one of the country’s most popular fast food restaurants.
But Sunrise host Edwina Bartholomew has never tried her finger at licking the good kitchen, which sparked outrage from her breakfast TV stars.

“You know what, I’ve never had KFC,” she admitted Friday after presenting a financial story about the fried chicken giant’s expansion.
“I think I’ve had chips, but I’ve never had the chicken.”
“I’ve had Maccas, but never KFC.”
Co-host Matt Doran said he was “annoyed” by the shock admission.
“What do you mean you’ve never had the colonel?” he asked, before sharing his love of the “hot chips with a little extra spice.”
Sports presenter Mark Beretta asked “are you kidding me?”
He then promised to “solve” the problem by taking Edwina to a local store.
“You’ve never tasted the magic of a bun, mashed potatoes and gravy from KFC.”
The Western Australian-born co-host Natalie Barr said it was “fantastic” that her colleague had not been to KFC before admitting she has been a fan of the restaurant ever since.
“It was the only fast food joint we used to have in Bunbury many years ago,” she said.
“My friend and I used to go there every other day.”
