Two young guys in London have done what only most of us have ever dreamed of – turning a cheap date at McDonalds into a classy date night out for two, before getting kicked out and banned from the family restaurant for the privilege.

One of the duo, Cameron Ford, Tweeted (and has since deleted): “Cheers to my beautiful boyfriend on our special night. Love you Adam”.

The teens brought a tablecloth, plates, cutlery, wine glasses and fake candles to enjoy their meal at a branch of McDonald’s in Kingston, South London.

Ford and his friend Adam Welland were enjoying their meal when staff demanded that they leave the restaurant.

When asked why they decided to bring their dining extras, they joked: “We just thought the place needed a bit of class.”

Cameron, Adam and another friend William Peachey all Tweeted pictures of the classy meal, which soon went viral, and have been retweeted thousands of times.

No word on whether McDonald’s kicked them out because they found the tablecloth and glassware or offensive or whether the couple were not “family friendly”.

Reacting to the incident, a McDonald’s spokesperson said: “We are aware of the two customers who dined at our Kingston restaurant on Saturday night and are pleased that we were able to offer them an affordable treat.

“We are happy to provide plastic cutlery to those customers who request it. We ask that any items brought in by customers, such as cups or plates, are used responsibly and taken away with them after use.”

UPDATE: While the two young men in question claimed to be gay online, they have since admitted that they are simply straight friends, and the entire event was a prank.
