Stunned fast food fan Terry O'Neil ordered a KFC fillet feast only to find a piece of chicken that looked just like the UK -- with Scotland missing.
Terry, 55, ended up with the savoury 'omen' after ordering a family bucket while on holiday with wife Jo, 39, and their three children.
He plucked out a fresh fillet piece and said: "This looks like Britain - but where's Scotland gone?"
He said: "I picked this one piece out and I thought it looked like the map of Britain, but then I realised Scotland was missing."
Terry, who lives on the Isle of Wight, was on holiday in Eastbourne, East Sussex, with Jo and sons Ryan, 13, Jamie, eight, and 20-month-old Tyler when they popped into KFC.
The pub entertainer said: "I didn't notice it at first, but the closer I looked the more it just looked like the UK - well, England and Wales - but with no Scotland.
"I don't know whether it's an omen for the outcome of the Scottish referendum, but I wouldn't be surprised if Scotland votes 'Yes'.
"I'll be very sad if they do because it will mean we will probably never have another Labour government again.
"I think people in general are very disillusioned with politics and with Westminster in particular. I'll understand if Scotland votes for independence."
