This is the funny moment a BBC reporter today had to explain to viewers why she was covered in chicken poo.
BBC Breakfast hosts Jon Kay, 52, and Sally Nugent, 50, had been discussing the exponential rise in food prices and how chicken is the latest product to increase in cost.
Afterwards, reporter Nina Warhurst, 41, appeared on the show, live from a chicken farm in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire to add further information on the topic.
She explained that the cost of living crisis has caused the price of breeding and looking after the animals to rise and had a knock on effect on restaurants such as Nandos and KFC.

Nina added a touch of humour to the end of her broadcast, pointing at and explaining the mark on her blue puffer jacket- chicken poo.
She explained to Jon and Sally: ‘Just to say, it’s the first time I’ve held chicks today.
‘But if you were wondering down here if this is toothpaste from this morning…it is not.’
The presenters found the moment funny, with Sally saying: ‘Thanks Nina, for that image.’

‘Feed, fuel, labour costs driving the rise.
‘50% of our meat is poultry; how long can we afford the Sunday staple?
‘We will also bring you super cute chick cam live. And yes one has already pooed on me.’
