Rishi Sunak claims to enjoy McDonald's breakfast wrap - but item no longer exists on menu

Rishi Sunak has revealed his favourite things to order for breakfast at McDonald's - but one of the items no longer exists.

Speaking on ITV's This Morning programme, the former chancellor was asked about a photograph posted on Instagram of him paying at a McDonald's self-service machine while on the Conservative leadership campaign trail.

Asked what he had ordered, he said: "I get a bacon roll with ketchup and the pancakes.

"But if I'm with my daughters then we get the wrap. If I'm with her (my eldest daughter) we get the wrap with the hash brown."

Mr Sunak's order raised eyebrows after it was pointed out that the breakfast wrap was actually taken off the menu in March 2020, at the start of the COVID pandemic.

In a statement in January this year, the fast-food chain confirmed that breakfast wraps, along with bagels, would not be returning to the menu.

A Sunak campaign source said: "Rishi has barely seen his kids in the last two-and-a-half years since he became chancellor so there has been almost no opportunity to share a McDonald's with them.

"He's hoping they might consider bringing the breakfast wrap back on the menu."

Mr Sunak also discussed his two daughters in the interview, saying: "They mean the world to me. They're nine and 11, I barely see them at the moment."

It came after an exclusive poll for Sky News claimed that Liz Truss is set to win the Tory leadership contest by a decisive margin next month.

The poll places the foreign secretary 32 points ahead of Mr Sunak.

The YouGov survey suggests 66% of members are voting for Ms Truss and 34% are backing Mr Sunak, once those who do not know or will not vote are excluded.

The race has tightened very slightly since a YouGov poll of members just over two weeks ago, when Ms Truss had a 38 percentage point lead.

The poll also shows that the legacy and personality of Boris Johnson is likely to loom large over the next prime minister as there is huge regret among Tory members over the decision to oust him in July.

YouGov interviewed 1,089 Tory members from 12 to 17 August for Sky News.
