Love a McDonald's McSpicy but wish it was hotter? Well, we have good news.
The fast food giant has just announced a brand new burger is landing in a matter of days, in collaboration with Frank's RedHot Sauce.
The burger is putting a spin on the classic McSpicy to create what'll be their spiciest burger ever.
It'll come like the classic Maccies chicken burger, with a chicken breast patty in a crispy coating, with jalapeños, lettuce, Emmental cheese and onions in a sesame seed bun, except there will be the addition of Frank's RedHot Mayo.

Thomas O’Neil, Head of Menu at McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said: “We know how much our customers love spice, and were blown away by the reaction to the McSpicy since it first launched as a limited-edition back in July 2021, growing to a permanent resident on our main menu.
“This collaboration with Frank’s RedHot gave us such an exciting opportunity to build on an already iconic product and create something genuinely spicy but also delicious that we know both McDonald’s and Frank’s RedHot customers will love. We’re really looking forward to seeing the reaction”.
The spicy new burger will be available across UK and Irish Maccies restaurants, Drive-Thrus, the McDonald’s App and via McDelivery from 7th February.
If you want to order the burger on its own, it'll cost £5.59, and it comes as part of a meal for £7.29.

As the news was announced online, it's fair to say a lot of spice-heads were excited.
"Masterpiece... LOVE," said one person in the comments.
Whilst another wrote: "Quality."
"Giving the people what they want!," said someone else.

No sign of that yet, but also joining the new Frank's RedHot McSpicy are a bunch more menu additions, including the Big Tasty (£7.69), the Big Tasty with Bacon (£8.49), Mozzarella Dippers (£2.39) and a Mozzarella Dippers Sharebox (£6.49).
Mark your calendars! We're all getting a McDonald's in a week's time.
