FOUR Bury teachers have swapped the classroom for the TV cameras — to appear in a Kellogg’s Corn Flakes advert!

Robert Margolis, Lynn Provoost, James Holt and Millie Hall from The Derby High School were handpicked for the latest ad which was first show on ITV this week.

The group was whittled down from hundreds of applicants and a cast screening. They were selected for passionately disagreeing on the best time to eat the cereal.

Coordinator of Dance and Drama, Millie Hall, aged 29, who enjoys hers as a snack in the evenings, said: “It’s all about getting your onesie on and having the comfort of your cornflakes in the evening. It caused quite a debate among the team as we all like to have them differently — the crew filmed for three hours in total and by the end we were all howling, and the crew were joining in the debate, too.”

Excited to be part of Kellogg’s history, head of expressive arts, James Holt and assistant head, Lynn Provoost both described the nostalgia of the snack.

James, aged 33, said: “I have mine at morning break times, gives me chance to zone out the busy day for five minutes. Takes me back to playing the games and puzzles on the back of pack and eating them when I was younger.”

Mother-of-three, Lynn, aged 41, added: “I always eat mine on the way to work. ”

In October, an 18-person film crew descended on the staff room at The Derby High School.

Deputy head Robert Margolis, who prefers cornflakes first thing in the morning with hot milk, said: “It was really exciting to watch the crew transform our staffroom into a bright, colourful room.

“We can’t wait for the kids to see it on the TV.

“I think for many of them they don’t see our social identities and just think of us as their teachers — so it will be funny to see their reaction.

“So long as we don’t embarrass ourselves we may have to do a screening in assembly to showcase our debut!”

The ad campaign will feature a cast of eight real families, friends and work colleagues — all genuine fans — talking about when to eat the ‘perfect bowl’ of cornflakes.

The decision to launch the nine month campaign comes as a natural progression of the 2017 debate, when the cereal giant asked genuine fans; ‘what’s your perfect bowl?’

Last year’s campaign launched after a six-year break in commercial advertising for the breakfast cereal — and even had Father Christmas telling the nation how he eats his cornflakes.

A spokesman for Kellogg’s said: “We have had great fun opening up the cornflakes debate and now we want to take it a step further, our cast remind people what they love about this iconic cereal and how it doesn’t just have to be enjoyed at breakfast.

“We have seen a change in how people are eating cereal but also in what they are having for breakfast. Therefore we wanted to capture how our customers are eating Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.”
