Britain’s biggest KFC fans spend £15k on chicken and serve it at their wedding

A UK couple has revealed that they’ve splashed out £15,000 on KFC – including on their first date and wedding breakfast.

And, it went to the next level thanks to pregnancy cravings.

Jessica and Elliott Caswell-James, both 30, have eaten KFC every single week since they shared a bucket and cinema trip on their first night together.

And, 12 years later they’re still ticking into the Colonel's chicken on every special occasion.

Last year they served their guests KFC at their wedding including personalised buckets and branded goodie bags.

For their first wedding anniversary the pair are heading to the chain’s “Holy Grail” first ever outlet in Kentucky after being named Britain’s biggest KFC enthusiasts.

Jessica and Elliott, from Tipton, near Birmingham, have calculated that they’ve spent around £15,000 on chicken, chips and sides during their relationship.

And, when baby Eva, one, came along Jessica’s cravings were all for Kentucky fried chicken.

Fashion retailer Jessica said: “When I was pregnant, I really wanted the spicy wings and the Supercharger sauce, after making sure it was safe to eat them.

“Eva has tried KFC now she’s a little bit older – we don’t give her full meals obviously, but she enjoyed some popcorn chicken at her first birthday party.”

The family took part in a competition to find the UK’s biggest KFC fans – and won the trip to the original branch in the US.

Jessica added: “I was so surprised when they emailed to say we’d won. This is essentially going to be our honeymoon.

“It’s completing the circle. We had it at our wedding and we’re excited to visit the first KFC and learn about the history and get some photos."

She continued: “We usually have KFC once a week, on takeaway night, but I’ve never been tempted to make my own – I think it’s best left to the experts.

“Some of my friends have asked if we have shares in KFC though – or suggested I get a job there to pick up the staff discount.”

The duo are well known in their local KFC store having patronised it for over a decade.

Professor Ken Tucky, Head of Superfans at KFC, said: “We were looking for those who have gone above and beyond all in the name of the Colonel for this year’s Superfan Search – and the entries did not disappoint.

"It was tight, but Jessica and Elliott were a peck above the rest and we couldn’t be more excited to see how their honeymoon trip to Kentucky pans out.”
