And although Sadie Massokisst has been known to enjoy a bagel for breakfast like many other city folk they are a huge fan of proper coffee.

And trainer Keron Pizey said he often has to get up early so doesn’t much fancy something to eat.  

And it's become such a habit that he doesn't eat breakfast even when he does have time, instead picking an unusual tea blend to make up for it.

He added: “I like the taste of coffee and I find it more filling than tea, although I drink both.

Mum Megs Latham likes to have a toasted bagel topped with peanut butter, banana and honey and shares it with her daughter Grace.
