The Big Mac is a classic – but McDonald’s has announced they are changing it for the first time.

The fast food chain is adding bacon to the burger – a variant that has been available in other countries but never in the UK.

The Big Mac has not been changed in the UK since it was created in 1968.

But if you are a purist, the original bacon-less burger is still on offer.

The smaller Mac Jr. (made with one less patty) and bigger Grand Big Mac (made with larger burgers and buns) are also back – both with and without bacon.

The alternative sized burgers were introduced last year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the burger.

The Big Mac Bacon, Grand Big Mac Bacon and Mac Jr. Bacon are available in restaurants nationwide for a limited time only from 30 January until the 19 March.

The standard-sized Big Mac Bacon will be £3.09, the Mac Jr Bacon will cost £2.29 and the Grand Big Mac Bacon will cost £4.09.

Michelle Graham-Clare, Head of Marketing at McDonald’s UK and Ireland, 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?’
