Ollie Mason-Clarke, also known online as the King of Cheat Meals, was lucky enough to get a bouquet from his partner Sarah Collier.

"It was a pretty sweet present, to be honest.

"I haven't had a bouquet of fried chicken before, and probably won't again.

"It's a little more memorable than your average Valentine's gift."

There was no fowl play when it came to eating the bouquet, with Mr Mason-Clarke solving that problem by eating most of it himself.

"I was nice enough to give her a couple of tenders though."

Some might say that would ruffle her feathers, but Mr Mason-Clarke had already hatched a plan to make sure he stayed in the good books

She received cupcakes on the morning of Valentine's Day, and was taken out for a dessert degustation over the weekend.

Ollie Mason-Clarke was among some known KFC fans to receive the bouquets, with others including Brodie Kane, Colin Mathura-Jefree, and Sam Wallace.
