MCDONALD'S is giving away free burgers all week in a bid to help customers beat those January blues.

The fast food chain will kick off the offer today, the most depressing day of the year, until Friday, January 25.

Fans of the chain must download the McDonad's app and set up an account -which includes giving over a full name, email address and postcode - to claim the free cheeseburger.

Once completed, a free burger voucher will appear in the deal section of the app.

So, if you fancy a burger after 10.30am today, this is one way to save yourself 99p!
