A Christmas advent calendar promoting safety messages for the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service is to include a message from celebrity dance duo Stavros Flatley.
The London duo, made up of dad Demetrios Demetriou and son Lagi, found fame on ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent with their Greek Irish dancing routines.
In the 46-second safety video, dad Demetrios is stood at the stove, in his familiar bare-chested pose, cooking Christmas dinner. Asked by Lagi why he is wearing a stuffed turkey on his head, he says it is to remind him not to leave his turkey unattended in the oven. Lagi then opens the oven door to check on the turkey only to reveal his dad forgot to put the turkey in the oven.
The message is for people not to get distracted when cooking - one of the main causes of kitchen fires.
Rapper Honey G has also recorded a safety message for Cambs Fire which is scheduled to go out on CFRS’s Facebook and Twitter pages on New Year’s Day.
