A spokesperson from McDonald's said: "We are currently experiencing a shortage in our supply of tomatoes.

"As a result, the Big Tasty and the Big Tasty with Bacon will have one slice of tomato rather than the usual two.

"We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank our customers for their patience. We are working hard to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.”
