Shrove Tuesday, fondly known as Pancake Day, is being celebrated by millions across the globe on 4 March.

It is the traditional feast day which precedes Ash Wednesday, the official start of Lent, and even celebrities are getting in on the flipping action.

While many have enjoyed a pancake breakfast, others have taken part in a pancake race or are simply spreading the sugary battered love.

Either way it's only right that they document all the pancake fun on social media as it happens.
