Everyone has tried to figure out exactly which ingredients make their chicken so finger-lickin' good but could KFC's Twitter account have been the answer to our questions all along?
Some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the account for the chicken chain has paid homage to it's "eleven herbs and spices" by only following eleven people on Twitter, five of which are the SPICE GIRLS!
