McDonald's is launching a brand new burger across Australia to mark 50 years of the iconic Big Mac.

The arrival of the Grand Big Mac comes after the supersized version of the popular burger sold out in just three days when it was released in the UK. 

The burger includes all the classic Big Mac ingredients, but with more Special Sauce over two larger 100 percent Aussie beef patties, according to the press release. 

It also comes with more lettuce, cheese and onions - all served on a larger sesame seed bun.

Jo Feeney, Marketing Director at McDonald's Australia said: 'We're excited to be celebrating 50 years of the Big Mac, one of Macca's most popular burgers here and around the world. 

'To celebrate this special occasion we're introducing the limited edition Grand Big Mac – giving our customers more of what they know and love.'

In England, the Grand Big Mac quickly sold out, with shortfalls reported across the country.

One restaurant in Middlesbrough put a sign up warning of a 'national shortage' of the burger, which contains a whopping 741 calories, compared to the original's 508.

It said: 'Unfortunately we cannot sell any Grand Macs due to a national shortage.'

Meanwhile, in Plymouth, three restaurants had sold out. Signs in the window said: 'So tasty it's sold out'.
