A TV weather girl will add a touch of glamour to Lincoln's Great Australian Breakfast when she takes her place serving up bacon and sausages on Sunday.

Look North's Sarah Cruddas will join Lincoln's MP Gillian Merron and civic dignitaries at 19th Great Australian Breakfast event on Sunday which celebrates the city's twinning with Port Lincoln in Australia.

Home-grown tucker will be sizzling from 8.30am at the Lawn on Union Road, Lincoln, and at 10.30am BBC Lincolnshire will perform a live link-up between the Mayor of Lincoln, David Gratrick and the Mayor of Port Lincoln.

More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the event which is hoped to raise thousands of pounds for charities chosen by Councillor Gratrick, the Echo and BBC Lincolnshire.

The Echo has chosen Lincoln Community Larder which provides food for hard-up families in the city while BBC Lincolnshire has nominated Children in Need and Cllr Gratrick has picked the Lincoln Cathedral Fund.

Miss Cruddas said she was looking forward to tucking into a good breakfast in between serving punters.

"It's a great event – sort of an indoor barbecue," she said.

"As for the weekend's forecast, at the moment it looks like it's going to be warmer than it's been for a long time with temperatures at five or six degrees and largely dry."

City of Lincoln Council event organiser Kate Fenn said: "Every year people say they think it's the best one yet and with great local produce and entertainment throughout the morning hopefully this year will be no different."

Diners can enjoy a full breakfast for £4 or £2.50 for under 12s with Australian passport holders invited to eat for free.
