One In 10 Adults Thinks Their Partner Eating McDonald's Without Them Is As Bad As Cheating

One In 10 Adults Thinks Their Partner Eating McDonald's Without Them Is As Bad As Cheating

Many people were missing a good ol' Maccies throughout lockdown, which became very clear from the huge queues of cars when some of the chain's restaurants reopened for drive-thru.

According to a poll of 1,000 fast food fans, one in 20 are desperate for a taste of Maccies after months of going without and would break up with their other half if they went for a sneaky drive-thru alone.

The remarkable devotion among its customers is also highlighted by claims from one in five that their first taste of a Big Mac after lockdown was better than a pay rise (17 percent).

Meanwhile, 16 percent of loyal Maccies fans even rated the feeling as being on a par with the birth of their first child (who are these people?!) and 13 percent considered it to be better than their wedding day.

Imagine comparing your kid to a £5 meal.

Almost one in 10 would prefer to go without their mobile phone and 29 percent would rather skip watching sport for a year if it meant they could get their hands on a Big Mac. Alright, they're good but are they that good?

Well, no one will have to give up anything soon because McDonald's restaurants will reopen dine-in areas from Wednesday 22 July across the UK. Drive-thrus are already open.

About 700 of the chain's branches will open for people to eat in as of tomorrow - except for in Wales - following a successful trial.

The move also means that some of the restaurants can take part in the Chancellor's Eat Out to Help Out scheme, offering 50 percent off dine-in bills, up to £10 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August.

These McDonald's lovers might as well set up camp.
