Hoda Kotb and her co-host Jenna Bush Hager got into a conversation about fast food during a segment on their show during which Hoda said something 'controversial'.

The Today show co-hosts became animated as they were fed various items from the menus of the likes of Burger King and McDonalds.

But it was Hoda's comment on-air which drew gasps from the audience and Jenna too.  

While chewing on a chicken nugget, she revealed: "I'm gonna say something controversial. I don't like a chicken nugget."

"HODA!!!!" wrote one, as another added: "Depends who makes them," and a third said: "I don't like them either. "

Others said it was because she hadn't added sauce and there were plenty of people who said they loved the funny segment.

Hoda and Jenna love to debate on the air 

Hoda is close with her co-stars, including Jenna and Savannah Guthrie, and they'll no doubt be making some plans for the mom-of-two as she approaches her 58th birthday. 

On 9 August she'll make the milestone, which will be a little bittersweet as it is her first since she split from her fiance, Joel Schiffman, earlier this year. 

They continue to co-parent their daughters, Haley and Hope, together but they are no longer romantically involved.
