Surrounded by blue, yellow and white decor, Olly and Amelia could be seen grinning as they posed by the ‘preggs’ van. Amelia rocked her growing bump in an all-black ensemble, alongside a Greggs bag, re-branded with the logo ‘preggs’.

Other details of the customised packaging included a caution label referencing Olly’s hit, with the lyrics: “Your heart will skip, skip, skip a beat.”

The baby shower even boasted a brand new tagline: “Satisfy your pastry cravings.” Very on brand!

Olly and Amelia were surrounded by family and friends as they enjoyed pastry snacks and grooved to music. Olly even sported a perfect mascot outfit.

Another praised: “I think the sausage roll costume should make tour tbh,” and a third added: “This is the best baby shower!”
