Workplaces across Scotland are being invited to join in a big breakfast.

MasterChef winner Gary Maclean faced the toughest judging panel of his career as he joined STV weather presenter Sean Batty at the launch of the Big Scottish Breakfast sponsored by Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms, an annual STV Children's Appeal fundraising event supporting children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland.

The Big Scottish Breakfast will be held on Friday 6 September, with schools, businesses, community groups and sports teams across the country getting together for fun breakfast events to raise money for Scotland’s children.

Gary Maclean said: "As a father of five and an educator in food, I have seen first-hand the difference a healthy breakfast makes. Young people have a much sharper focus and having breakfast has been proven to make a huge difference in productivity and concentration in class.

“Too many kids go without breakfast and I feel every child in Scotland should be able to access a healthy breakfast each day and every day."

Sean Batty said: "I've had a brilliant time supporting the Big Scottish Breakfast over the last few years and I'm really excited to help launch the 2019 campaign alongside Gary.

"This year we're determined to go bigger and better than ever, and I’d love to see schools, businesses and groups right across the country join in with their own Big Scottish Breakfast to raise money for Scotland's children.

"We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so please help the STV Children's Appeal ensure that children in Scotland get a good start to the day and the best start in life."
