The Hollyoaks and the ivy: Soap star beats Christmas birthday blues by launching Frankie and Benny’s Big Kids Birthday parties

Jorgie Porter and friends at Manchester's Printworks

Hollyoaks star Jorgie Porter has launched the first Frankie & Benny’s Big Kids Birthday parties.

And as her own birthday is on Christmas Day, she decided her Half Birthday today (July 25th) would be a good date to start.

The popular Italian restaurant hopes to showing diners in need of fun that they can celebrate their birthday any time, including the 1,400 people typically born in the UK on Christmas Day every year, who Frankie and Benny’s are encouraging to follow Porter’s lead, take back their big day and celebrate anytime.

The new Big Kids Birthday Bundles, in partnership with Project D Doughnuts, have been inspired by the nostalgia of children’s parties and are are available from August 4, with booking open from today.

The bundles include free Frankie’s playing cards, birthday postcard, birthday crowns, stickers and trolley coin birthday sign when you buy a Project D Homer giant doughnut. You can even celebrate with a rum Big Kids Birthday milkshake!

Porter and six of her friends went to Frankie & Benny’s Manchester Printworks and celebrated with the new Frankie & Benny’s birthday pack, the grown up shakes and the delicious Project D doughnuts.

The Hollyoaks, who has just become a mum for the first time, said: “I’ve never liked having a Christmas Day birthday so when I was asked to get involved in this campaign I jumped at the chance It’s so important for parents to get that time and the 00’s nostalgia is a vibe! Thank you Frankie & Benny’s for giving me a proper birthday!”

Frankie & Benny’s marketing director, Andreia Harwood, added: “We are thrilled to announce we are bringing back birthday parties at Frankie & Benny’s in partnership with Project D Doughnuts. We know our guests have fond memories of celebrating their birthdays in our restaurants when they were in their teens, so what better way to feel young again than with our Big Kid’s Birthday Bundles at affordable prices, all to the tune of a classic birthday jingle and a birthday cocktail.”
