Anton Danyluk, Jean Johansson and Sean Batty launch the Big Scottish Breakfast

  • Scots stars of Love Island, A Place in the Sun and Sean’s Scotland launched campaign by getting their hands dirty in a breakfast challenge at Glasgow school
  • Organised by the STV Children’s Appeal, the Big Scottish Breakfast raises funds to provide free breakfasts for children and young people across Scotland
  • Nationwide event will take place between 9 – 13 September

Following his stay in the explosive Love Island: All Stars villa earlier this year, Anton Danyluk has faced an even bigger challenge: a pancake-decorating competition with a group of ten-year-olds at a Glasgow primary school.

The telly star was joined by presenters Jean Johansson and Sean Batty at Battlefield Primary School in the city’s southside to help launch the STV Children’s Appeal’s 2024 Big Scottish Breakfast event, in partnership with Kellogg’s. A fun favourite in the charity’s fundraising calendar, the campaign raises money to provide nutritious breakfasts for children and young people across Scotland who often go without.

The celebrity trio each teamed up with a Battlefield pupil and were tasked with creating the most fabulous pancake topping in just five minutes. With the competition fierce, the school very much lived up to its name – but in the end, it was Anton and his partner Kevin, aged 10, who fellow pupils voted as the winning team.

Anton, Jean and Sean were also grilled by Battlefield pupils on all things breakfast, with Anton admitting he loves indulging in leftover curry in the morning, Sean revealing the highest breakfast he’s ever eaten was aboard the world’s shortest flight in the Orkney Islands, and Americano-loving Jean claiming coffee would beat tea in a fight.

The much-loved stars are inviting people across Scotland to get together with friends, family, colleagues and classmates between 9 – 13 September to host their own fun-filled breakfast event and raise funds to help children and families at risk of hunger in Scotland. Every penny raised as part of the campaign will support projects that provide free breakfasts to children across the country.

Kellogg’s has supported breakfast clubs across the UK for over 25 years and is proud partner of the Big Scottish Breakfast. Helen Potter, Kellogg’s UKI Cereal Activation Lead, said: “We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Big Scottish Breakfast for the second year running and to support such an important campaign to raise money for children affected by poverty.

“We know how important breakfast can be and the impact being hungry can have in the classroom. That’s why we support breakfast clubs, so that children can start the day with a full tummy feeling ready to learn.”

Anton Danyluk said: “For many of us, eating breakfast every day is something we take for granted, but sadly that isn’t the reality for some children and families across Scotland. It’s a pleasure to be able to use my platform to encourage more people to take part in the Big Scottish Breakfast this September, and what better way to kick it all off than a lively morning with the brilliant kids at Battlefield Primary? There were a few telly stars of the future there for sure!”

Jean Johansson said: “This is such an important cause for me to get behind as I strongly believe no child in Scotland should be affected by poverty. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and whether it’s a get-together with your family, best pals, or workmates, we can all share a meal and raise funds for this important campaign.”

Sean Batty said: “I’ve lost count of how many Big Scottish Breakfasts I’ve had now, but this was certainly one of the most entertaining! A big thank you to Kellogg’s for their support, and to the kids at Battlefield Primary School for giving us a run for our money. It’s all for a fantastic cause and I encourage everyone to join in the fun with their own brekkie challenge in September!”
