“We know a lot of our customers will remember the 1974 launch of the Big Mac in the UK and have continued to enjoy the burger and pass the Big Mac love on since then, it remains our most iconic burger!”

Recently, Big Narstie starred alongside Lady Leshurr in an advert for the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac. It saw the pair in a rap battle, trying to list of all the ingredients of the iconic burger. Watch beneath.
