MCDONALD'S is revamping its menu TODAY – launching a host of new meals, including FOUR new burgers, in time for summer.
But its bad news for fans of the popular McSpicy, Grand Big Mac, and more, as several favourites are AXED to make way for the newbies.
The chain has created four different burgers this year, which will hit UK menus in the coming weeks.
They're not all launching today, but fans will be able to tuck into two this month, along with a host of other tasty treats.
The Sun's Emily Downes even got a sneak peak of what's being served up from this lunchtime, and gives the low down on all the new flavours.
Maccies fans will also be able to enjoy halloumi fries for the first time later in the summer, as the popular snack graces the fast-food giant's serving platters.
