McDonald’s has given its iconic Big Mac a new look.

For the first time in its 50 year history the burger has been given a new ingredient – bacon.

The fast food chain has also announced the return of the Grand Big Mac and the Mac Jr – which had a limited edition run last year.

And bacon fans can also get variants of the Big Mac with the tasty additional item too.

The Big Mac Bacon, Grand Big Mac Bacon and Mac Jr. Bacon are available in restaurants nationwide for a limited time until March 19.

And if bacon doesn’t tickle your fancy, all three burgers will also be available in their classic style during this time.

Michelle Graham-Clare, head of marketing at McDonald’s UK&I, said: “The customer reaction to our Grand Big Mac and Mac Jr. last year was phenomenal, the love for the iconic Big Mac surpassed all expectations.

“Which is why I am delighted to introduce bacon to the Big Mac range, a twist on a classic which has sparked debates around the world – is a Big Mac still a Big Mac if you add bacon?”
