Sexy trio Destiny's Child have taken over from pop hunk Justin Timberlake as the new faces of fast food chain McDONALD'S.

The new partnership, which was announced yesterday (06OCT04), will see the BOOTYLICIOUS singers fronting the "I'm Lovin' It" campaign, which is aimed at broadening the chain's appeal.

Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will appear in TV advertisements for the company, although it has yet to be announced when they will air.

Frontwoman Beyonce says, "We're lovin' the chance to work with McDonald's and know that together we'll create lots of fun and cool surprises.

"McDonald's shares our passion for music, so we can't wait to start connecting to our fans."

McDonald's will also sponsor the group's worldwide tour called DESTINY FULFILLED AND LOVIN' IT, which begins in the spring (05) and sees them travelling to Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Canada and their native USA.

Timberlake will make his final appearance for the chain this week (ends08OCT04) in Toronto, Canada, but versions of his track I'M LOVIN' IT will continue to be featured in McDonald's ads.
