The first thing my daughter said to me this morning was "can I have a pancake mum?" and given it's Shrove Tuesday, how could I refuse?
If we were late to school at least we would be full! We weren't late and I even managed to get to Perry Hall Primary in Wolverhampton on time to make even more pancakes with a group of children aged 8 to 11.
We had a great cooking lesson from Lynn who has worked at the school for 25 years. As with all shoots like this there are great moments that won't always make the final edit and this out-take is one of children being themselves.
Ellis is the star who will probably grow up to be an Oscar winning director but have a watch and enjoy the clip!
