It was Pancake Day of course last week and it reminded me that somewhere in my collection was a Press photo of Phil Parkes being tempted with a pancake by the reigning BBC Golden Girl. It’s dated 24th February 1974 and under the title of ‘Tempting Dish’ it reads:
‘Pat Keeling, the reigning Miss BBC Golden Girl, tempts Queen’s Park Rangers goalkeeper Phil Parkes with a pancake at Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London today. Phil had just put Pat, winner of last year’s race, and other national beauty queens through their paces for a charity pancake race on Tuesday.’
He does look tempted !
