Phil Vickery Joins McDonald's
McDonald’s today launched its search for ‘Quality Scouts’, members of the public who will go behind the scenes and report back on how some of its most famous products are made – including the Big Mac and Fries and the Sausage and Egg McMuffin – in response to increased interest from consumers in where the food they buy comes from.
The Quality Scouts will investigate and chronicle the supply chain journey from some of the 17,500 British and Irish farms that supply McDonald’s through to food production and restaurants. They will meet and interview farmers, food suppliers and McDonald’s employees to find out the facts about what’s in their chosen product and how it is made. McDonald’s will then publish the Quality Scouts’ reports on its interactive website whatmakesmcdonalds.co.uk later this year.
McDonald’s has invited farmer, England rugby legend and 2011 Celebrity MasterChef winner, Phil Vickery, to help select the Quality Scouts and take part in behind-the-scenes supply chain visits this summer.

And if there isn't a snapper around to capture her on film, the former-Corrie actress - a regular user of Twitter and Instagram, opts for the DIY route to take 'selfies' - pics of her herself (usually in her underwear).
Ms Flanagan may need a little help with her composition but she's getting there - and as they say, practice makes perfect.
