The limited edition burger was launched in the UK just a matter of days ago on February 2, and was intended to feature on the menu for six weeks.

But the fast food chain has today confirmed that the Chicken Big Mac has been taken off the menu due to “incredible” demand.

As of yet, there is no return date for the burger.

The fast food chain tweeted: “Well, that escalated quickly. Your love for the limited edition Chicken Big Mac knew no bounds and it’s sold out almost everywhere.

“Thank you for lovin’ it even more than we thought you would, it’ll be back soon.”

One person said: “Nooooo I haven't had a chance yet! I am devastated.”

Another tweeted: “Back soon? Are you serious, just make it permanent!!!! It was the best thing I’ve ever eaten at McDonald’s!”

And a third replied to McDonald’s with a broken heart emoji.

The new Chicken Big Mac is pretty much the same as a regular Big Mac with it's iconic sauce, but it has - you've guessed it - chicken patties instead of beef burgers.

It costs £4.09 for just the sandwich, or £5.59 for a medium meal with chips and a drink - you can go large for £5.99.

A spokesperson from McDonald’s said: “We have been delighted by our customers’ reaction to the limited-edition Chicken Big Mac.

“The demand has been incredible and we simply cannot keep up.

“As such we’ve made the decision to pause the promotion, let our restaurant teams and suppliers restock and get ready for its return in a few weeks.

“We’ll keep customers informed about its return through the usual channels. Thank you to everyone who has made this our most popular launch ever.
