This comes after it was announced earlier in the month that 15 McDonald's in the south were reopening on May 12 for deliveries only.

It is said these decisions have been made to test how to reopen stores safely as the UK looks into coming out of lockdown.

The drive-thru branches that are being reopened next week are spread across the UK as well as Ireland, although we don't know which ones they will be yet.

The Sun also reported that McDonald's bosses are planning to open more outlets as park of a phased re-opening over the summer.
