Actor Hannah Waddingham hated the famous "Ted Lasso" biscuits so much that the show's production team changed the recipe for her.

Waddingham plays Rebeca Welton in the Emmy-Award-winning series, the owner of the British football club that American Ted Lasso — played by Jason Sudeikis — is hired to coach.

In the show's first season, Ted brings Rebecca homemade biscuits to warm her to the idea that an American is taking over her beloved football club. His plot eventually works, and the two grow to be close friends over shared biscuits.

But it turns out Waddingham actually hated the initial biscuits.

"You didn't actually enjoy those dry biscuits?" Hoda Kotb asked Waddingham on Wednesday morning's episode of the Today Show.

"No, they were dry a-holes of biscuits at first," Waddingham admitted.

Waddingham said she complained about that first round of biscuits "so globally" that they changed the recipe for her.

"Now, they've got so much butter and sugar in them I could happily eat them all day," Waddingham said.

Three other Today Show hosts — Al Roker, Craig Melvin, and Carson Daly — then surprised Waddingham, Sudeikis, and co-star Brendan Hunt with McVitie's cookies in the same pink box that Ted uses to deliver Rebecca's biscuits in the show.

Ted Lasso returns to TV Wednesday on Apple TV+. While Sudeikis has said this will be the final season of the hit show, he and Hunt successfully avoided answering any questions about potential spinoffs or whether there will be a season four on the Today Show.
