While most of us have our Christmas Day meals planned out already, we have come across a tasty backup plan in case the turkey burns to a crisp or the ham gets stolen by the neighbour’s dog.

Selected KFC stores will be open on December 25, with special holiday hours, ready to come to the rescue with their secret herbs and spices.

The fast-food chain will be open from 10am through until 7.30pm dishing out their delicious fried chicken. Meanwhile, all stores will open with normal hours on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Year's Eve.
