Channel Seven's Plate of Origin hasn't even aired yet, and already, the upcoming cooking show has run into problems.
According to a report by The Australian on Monday, the highly-anticipated series features a rather unfortunate acronym: POO.
This realisation has reportedly given Seven executives a headache, as they scramble to resolve the issue before its air-date in 2020.

Apparently staff at the network have been ordered not to refer to the series by its acronym, but the unsavoury nickname has already stuck.
Instead, Seven staffers are apparently being told to shorten the series' name to 'Plate' or 'PlateOO'.
However, it appears amused staffers at the network are still enjoying the funny 'POO' moniker, too much to let it go.
