McDonald’s unveiled its Christmas menu today – with a host of old favourites returning to brighten up the festive season.

The much-missed Big Tasty – which features a beef burger, Emmental cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion and its namesake sauce – is back after a year-long absence. 

Also arriving back on the festive scene is the Matchmakers Cool Mint McFlurry – the fan favourite hasn’t been seen in the fast food chain’s restaurants since 2013.

Prices for the limited edition menu start at 99p to £6.59 for a meal and it will be available in eateries across the UK from tomorrow.

‘For 2019 we are excited to be combining these firm favourites with the Chicken Deluxe too – a delicious new addition to the menu which we know our customers will love.’
