However, he revealed he would be swapping the traditional turkey roast for the fast-food chain's finger lickin' good fried chicken.

And he stuck to his word and ordered a whopping 56 pieces of KFC fried chicken and 80 hot and spicy wings, plus a stack of sides.
Nick Chavez, KFC's U.S. CMO, spilled to Us Weekly: "Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, mac and cheese and more - we have options for anyone in their KFC era this holiday season and beyond.
"Chiefly, we recommend our finger lickin' good 2 for $5 KFC Wraps for any solo celebrations ... on or off the field."
Sharing his holiday plans on his and his brother Jason's 'New Heights' podcast, Travis said: "I'll be feasting on KFC because I won't have anybody here."
Jason, who lives in Pennsylvania with wife Kylie Kelcie, 31, and daughters Wyatt, four, Elliotte, two, and eight-month-old Bennett, invited his brother to their Thanksgiving celebration.
The Philadelphia Eagles player said: "If you want to make a quick trip you're welcome at the house. We'll have plenty of food."
Jason added Travis is usually a "super picky" eater and would end the holiday "in tears" as a kid while their dad Ed Kelce "screamed" at him to finish his food.
Meanwhile, Travis' mom Donna, 71, told Us Weekly about how she's "not a good cooker" and planned to bake cinnamon rolls instead.
She said: "They're always my favourite, my go-to. I only can do it a couple (of) times a year because they're so sugary. So we've got rolls, we have muffins, cookies, things like that."
Donna added that her loved ones would "go get a ham" as they are "not particularly fond of turkey".
Taylor and Travis' relationship was confirmed by the 'Anti-Hero' hitmaker when she was spotted cheering him on at The Arrowhead Stadium on 23 September next to his mother.
