It is the annual event when old Westminster enemies line up to batter each other.
Each year politicians take on the press corps in the charity Rehab Parliamentary Pancake Race.
This year, MPs put their tribal differences aside, and a cross party team defeated the likes of ITV news stalwart Alastair Stewart and Sky News reporter Sophie Ridge.
Norwich MP Clive Lewis was among those drafted in to take part in the race, and despite a gym injury did his bit for the MP team, only throwing his pancake into the crowd once.
He was invited to join the team by his parliamentary office neighbour Stephen Pound, saying it was the team spirit which allowed them to triumph.

'I am just glad we were not left with egg on our faces,' he said. 'It was great fun, and a great cause,' he added.
