If you think you love McDonald's, you have nothing in this pair.

Tom Jones, age 83, and wife Pauline, 82, have visited McDonald's every day for the past 23 years and say they do not believe fast food can make people fat.

To visit their favorite restaurant on Southgate Street, Bath, the couple has to travel two and a half kilometers from home.

Pauline said, "Let's have a coffee at 8.30 in the morning and then let's have a look at the shops.

"At 10ish we come back for what we call a snack!"

Tom added: "We come here seven days a week, every day.

"In addition to when we were on vacation we did not miss a day in 23 years".

Tom's usual party consists of a Big Mac, while Pauline is a little more adventurous and has everything that attracts her during the day.

"The staff is always very helpful – we also feel part of the building – part of the furniture.

"We always feel like they know who we are and they are so kind.

"Mind you, I always say thank you, and I think it goes a long way.

"It's like a second home for us.

"We like it in the morning when it's not as busy as it's a bit hectic at dinner time.

"We're not pub people and we appreciate the community we find at McDonald's."

Tom said that the perception that much of the chain's food can lead to overweight people is "wrong".

He added: "I just want to say that all this nonsense about McDonald's that make you gain weight is rubbish.

However, Tom stressed that they remain slim and fit in their eighties because of the exercise they include in their daily routines.

Paul Pearson, owner of the Southgate Street restaurant, stated that the couple is the "perfect symbol" of the difference that McDonald's can make in a community.
