Bury actress and radio personality Gemma Atkinson is showing off her stunning post-baby body in the run-up to Pancake Day.

During a glamourous Pancake Day photoshoot for Lyle’s Golden Syrup, Gemma opened up about how difficult it can be as a mum-of-two getting everyone ready for breakfast.

The Hits Radio presenter, 39, says she “loved the idea” of encouraging people to have their own pancake disco at home and was “thrilled” to be a part of the photoshoot.

Gemma said: “As a mum-of-two, I know how hectic mornings can be. My daughter Mia has just started school, so between her and my five-month-old, it can be hard to enjoy breakfast together as a family.

“I was thrilled with the chance to work with Lyle's Golden Syrup and loved the idea of encouraging people to have a pancake disco at home.

Bury Times:

“There’s nothing like bringing the whole family together for a tasty treat and a boogie, add a drizzle of golden syrup and it’s a magical way to start the day.

“I’m excited to help families across the UK celebrate Pancake Day with my Absolutely Golden Hits playlist, available to stream now.”

It comes as a Lyle’s survey research found two-fifths of people said that time and tiredness could stop them from celebrating Pancake Day.

But more than half of Brits (57 per cent) are planning to celebrate Pancake Day 2024 on Tuesday, February 13, with almost three-quarters (72 per cent) making their pancakes at home.

The research confirms sweet pancakes remain the favourite (63 per cent) over savoury, with more than two-fifths of Brits enjoying syrup on their pancakes (41 per cent).

James Whiteley, brand director for Lyle’s Golden Syrup, said: “Pancake Day isn’t just about enjoying gloriously golden pancakes drizzled with Lyle’s Golden Syrup.

“It’s an activity for all the family to enjoy, creating time to bond and enjoy golden moments with your loved ones.

“We want to encourage families to make the most of this quality time by hosting their very own breakfast pancake disco.

“Working with Gemma was an easy decision, as a big music fan with a young family of her own, she’s the ideal person to soundtrack our morning.

“We look forward to seeing the UK flipping their pancakes, and their frowns, upside down, and enjoying Pancake Discos, bringing a touch of magic to kitchens up and down the country.”

Lyle’s Golden Syrup is giving families the chance to win their very own Pancake Disco, with competitions going live across Instagram and Facebook this week, with entries closing midnight on February 12.
