Petra took to TikTok to post a look at the "back to school breakfast", explaining in the video: "It’s time for the back to school breakfast and it’s all set out ready for them to dig in.

"So we’ve got a selection of all sorts, we’ve got eggs, we’ve got some fruit, we’ve got some pain au chocolat, chocolate waffles, brioche bread, crumpets, yoghurts, cold meat and cheese, lots of different sauces and things and croissants and things too.

Opinions were vastly divided in the comments section of Petra's video – with some praising her for making such a big effort, while others said it was a waste of time.
