Amelia Dimoldenberg’s Chicken Shop Date with Chicken Run is hailed ‘iconic’ as the pesky poultry hatch a sabotage plan after seeing her eye up a nugget

Two worlds collided as Ginger, Rocky, Babs and the gang joined Amelia Dimoldenberg on a Chicken Shop Date. 

Amelia, who runs the successful series where she interviews celebrities in fried chicken restaurants, met her match this week as the cast of Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget broke into the eatery. 

Fans hailed it as ‘iconic’ as the pesky poultry took it upon themselves to sabotage the chicken shop, after seeing Amelia’s eyes light up at the thought of eating a nugget. 

The short skit, to celebrate the launch of the Netflix film which is out now, saw the birds on a mission to ‘shut this joint down’ – only for their plan to go awry when Amelia noticed them enter. 

While Rocky and Ginger scrambled, a not-so-quick Babs was caught out by the eagle-eyed presenter.

She said to them: ‘I can’t believe it Babs and Frizzle from Chicken Run. I’m such a fan. I’ve just been sat here forever, waiting for my date to arrive. What are you doing here?’ 

‘I hope you’re not here to cause trouble’. 

Rocky and Ginger made it to the counter and managed to tie the chef’s shoe laces, while a quick thinking Frizzle told Babs to knit something ‘to distract her from her crushing romantic failures’.

A peckish Ameila told them: ‘I love the title Dawn Of The Nugget, my favourite’ and held up a chicken nugget for the birds to see. 

But the chickens plucked up their courage and managed to trip up the chef and pull the emergency stop button.

Out went the electricity and Amelia was left alone in the darkness. She could just make out a plume of feathers exiting the shop. 

Fans called it Amelia’s best work to date.

It comes as children watching Chicken Run 2 told MailOnline the ‘morality tale’ won’t make them give up chicken nuggets, despite vegan activists claiming the film would turn audiences off meat.

Dawn of the Nugget, the sequel to the 2000 animated cult classic, sees thousands of hens being kept in a stupefied state in a Bond villain-styled huge chicken-processing factory.

After spending their final days in the Fun Land Farms theme park – promoted as the idyllic place where ‘chickens find their happy endings’ – they are taken away to be slaughtered and turned into nuggets.

Director Sam Fell became vegetarian during the making of the movie and activist groups said this week they hoped it would have the same impact on cinema-goers.

However, young filmgoers at the Greenwich Picturehouse in south east London told MailOnline they would carry on eating the crispy meaty treats.

Saul Alvarez, eight, said of the film: ‘I liked it. My favourite part was when the chickens broke out. But I still like chicken nuggets.’

His friend Oliver, eight, said: ‘I thought it was funny. I’ll definitely still eat chicken nuggets.’

Meanwhile, Bela Hall, 10, said: ‘I preferred this one to the first one. We don’t have chicken nuggets often but I’ll still eat them.’

Alfie Hall, 10, said: ‘My favourite character was the chicken who knitted, Babs. I feel a bit bad but I still like chicken nuggets so I’ll probably still eat them.’

Isabella St-Amour, 10, added: ‘The film was really good. I still like nuggets.’

Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget is available to watch on Netflix now.
