The full list of KFC restaurants reopening across the UK has been revealed.
If you’ve been missing your favourite takeaway during lockdown then we have some good news, as KFC is reopening 500 of its stores up and down the country.
According to The Sun, the fast food chain is preparing to get almost 50% of its restaurants up and running by the end of the week.
Those takeaways which are reopened will operate with a limited menu, allowing restaurants to run with social distancing measures and less staff in kitchens.
Workers are being kept apart with two metre zones marked by tape on the floor and perspex screens have also been installed.
All branches were shut on March 23 due to the coronavirus crisis, but some have been slowly reopening for either home delivery, drive-thru or click and collect over the past fortnight.
Dining areas will remain closed, as per Government guidelines, and delivery options will be available through Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats. See the list of KFC's currently open below:

This comes after the fast food chain announced it was reopening 16 restaurants for takeaway in person earlier this month.
Speaking in early May, Paula MacKenzie, managing director for KFC UK and Ireland, said: "I'm really proud of the way we, with our franchise partners, have been able to carefully get some of our restaurants back open for delivery over the last two weeks.
"This next stage allows us to continue to provide wider access to hot food for those who need it most, whether that's key workers after a long shift or those working from home who need a quick, affordable dinner for the family.
"I'm hugely appreciative of our team members who have returned to work - it's a challenging time for everyone, but we're so glad to play our part in helping to feed the nation."

In an announcement released last week, bosses revealed which stores have opened their doors once more - including Chelmsford, Dalston and Harrow.
In the statement, the chain said: "Slowly, but safely we will return to towns and cities across the UK and Ireland and thank you for your continued support as we work through this crisis."
