Michelin-starred restauranteur Glynn, from Chelmsley Wood, paid a visit to Birmingham Hippodrome to judge Matt Slack and Suzanne Shaw as they took on the omelette challenge.

Propping up 'Team Panto' from the wings was Wolverhampton's soul-diva Beverley Knight, who made her pantomime debut in Cinderella this year.

The contest tested the competitors on who could whip up the fastest and tastiest egg-based creation.

After the panto stars went pan to pan, pop star Suzanne Shaw was crowned the winner of the special omelette challenge following a taste test conducted by Beverley, who humorously concluded Shaw's creation looked 'a bit more like an omelette'
