McDonald's has said it is reducing its prices this week and that some menu favourites will be cheaper than the equivalent at high street rival Greggs.

From Wednesday, April 17, McDonald's is slashing the price on some of its breakfast deals. Diners will be able to get their hands on a Sausage & Egg McMuffin or an Egg McMuffin, as well as a regular hot drink, soft drink, or bottled drink, for £2.79.

A spokesperson for the fast food giant pointed out that this makes it 6p cheaper than Greggs' breakfast deal - which features a breakfast roll (egg, sausage, or bacon) with a hot drink for £2.85. McDonald's and Greggs both serve their breakfast offerings until 11am each day.

The news of the lower-priced breakfast deals comes after McDonald's recently announced the return of one of its "best burgers ever". The Chicken Big Mac will be available once again from Wednesday, April 17.

Other additions to the menu include a Biscoff McFlurry and a Biscoff Frappe, as well as new Cheese and Herb Melts.

McDonald's fans have branded the Chicken Big Mac, which is priced at £4.69, "the best" with one person commenting: "Chicken Big Mac is the best burger McDonald’s have ever made." While another said: "The Chicken Big Mac is the best thing to ever bless the UK."

A third added: "Bruh, the flavours in the Chicken Big Mac? Unreal quality."
