McDonald's enthusiasts have been devastated by a nationwide shortage of a popular chicken dish.

The fast-food restaurant has run out of Chicken Selects, strips of tender chicken breast in a seasoned, crispy coating.

Those who wonder whether fans of the deep-fried poultry treat could simply opt for a McNugget instead have another thought coming.

Selects are integral ingredients of Big Flavour Chicken Wraps and the Chicken Deluxe Burger, both of which have also vanished from menus.

One woman discovered the chicken shelves were empty when she went to pick up some food at her local McDonald's.
