Fast-food lovers could snap up a discount Big Mac from tomorrow after McDonald’s announced plans to slash prices on some of its best-loved items.

Other prices to come down include a 40p reduction on Extra Value Meals, 30p for Happy Meals, and cuts to the McCafe coffee range.

Items such as desserts and cold drinks will remain the same price, and prices will not be dropped on McDelivery services.

Customers have also been told to check prices, because many McDonald’s restaurants are franchised, meaning the franchisee has the ultimate say over prices. 

The move comes after Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced plans to cut VAT to 5 per cent for businesses in the tourism and hospitality trade.

Other food and drink chains have also announced price drops, including pub chain Wetherspoons, which will slash food and drink prices this week, as well as KFC, which will cut its boneless bucket from £10 to £5.
