Daisy Ridley may have just lost a friend in Star Wars co-star John Boyega after her latest comments.

The 27-year-old was asked for the most unpopular opinion she holds while appearing on Radio 1 with Greg James, and it was a humdinger.

Daisy revealed that she thinks Nando’s is overrated, and we don’t think they’ll be sending her a coveted black card any time soon.

The actress, who plays Rey in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, said: ‘I think Nando’s is highly overrated’ – with John interrupting: ‘No! What did you just say to me?’

Undeterred, Daisy continued: ‘It’s like fast food, but you’re paying more money for it.

‘It used to be good, but the quality went down. When I used to eat chicken, I really liked it, but the quality went down before I stopped eating chicken and it wasn’t as good.’

John, 27, seemed personally offending, explaining that he saw Nando’s as a ‘sophisticated date for broke people’.

Earlier on the show, he had shared his affinity for the chicken restaurant, saying he would put one in Buckingham Palace.

The Finn actor said: ‘I’ve got big plans for Buckingham Palace. Trocadero, bring that back, left wing. Right wing, Nando’s downstairs.’

As for John’s unpopular opinion: ‘I don’t like Friends, the TV show. I don’t like it. I think it’s dead. The intro, the stupid sofa, everything man. It’s not for me, man. My family, they love it, but I’m not about that life.’

Let’s hope this skit doesn’t harm the Star Wars box office…

Daisy has already come under fire in the past week for comments she made on the Rise of Skywalker press tour about privilege.

When asked by The Guardian about her privilege and how it allowed her to decode the rules in certain spaces, Daisy said: ‘Well no, because, no… John grew up on a council estate in Peckham and I think me and him are similar enough that… no.’

John grew up in South London with British Nigerian immigrant parents and has spoken openly about having to apply for a hardship fund in order to join Theatre Peckham so he could pursue his acting career.

Meanwhile, Daisy’s grandfather, John Ridley OBE, was BBC head of the engineering from 1950 to 1965 and her father was Dad’s Army star Arthur Ridley.

Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise Of Skywalker is in cinemas 19 December.
