Nando's has announced it will be closing 45 restaurants due to a shortage of chicken.
Outlets in England, Scotland and Wales are being affected, with the cause being staffing issues at supplier factories and a shortage of HGV lorry drivers.
The South African fast food chain has decided to lend some of their staff to their suppliers to try and "get things moving again", according to the BBC.
The causes are the same ones that are causing empty supermarket shelves and so it is unclear as to how long the closures will last.
Nando's said: "We're sorry for any disappointment caused."

It is currently unclear whether the one King's Lynn and two Norwich restaurants will be affected by this shortage and the closures.
