At Heart Radio studios, Kelly Brook and JK transformed the studio into a makeshift kitchen, experimenting with various pancake toppings. Their antics included a whipped cream prank that startled JK with an unexpected air horn blast.

However, not all went smoothly on live television. While filling in for Lorraine Kelly on ITV’s Lorraine, Ranvir Singh found herself dodging airborne crepes during an attempt at a live pancake flip. These incidents across different platforms highlighted both the joy and chaos associated with Pancake Day celebrations.

Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, heralds the beginning of the 40-day Lenten period and is celebrated with indulgent pancake consumption. Originating in Olney, Buckinghamshire, the tradition of pancake races involves participants racing while skillfully flipping pancakes.

In the UK, this day is renowned for its quirky customs, including mob football games dating back to the 17th century and pancake races held in various towns and villages.

One notable event is the Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race in London, where teams from the House of Commons, House of Lords, and the Fourth Estate compete to raise awareness for the charity Rehab. This organization supports individuals with disabilities and those marginalized in society.
