We call his house this morning - but can't talk to Josh, as he's on voice rest until Tuesday!

If you missed the moment Josh first broke onto our TV screens on Britain's Got Talent, have a listen again!

So Jen, Josh's partner, the so-called "lucky cow" as labelled by David Walliams, tells us what's been happening!

Keep an eye on Josh's Facebook page for info as to when Josh Curnow will appear in his BGT semi-final.

Jen tells us how the preparations are going on the day of the semi-final.

We can't wait - Cornwall is right behind you!


4th place - we're gutted for you Josh - but also so proud - cant wait to hear you play live in the studios.

Emily wins poetry competition

21st May 2016

Emily House of LordsWinning World War 1 Poem

Perranporth's Emily Dutson has won a national poetry competition for her poem about World War One

Tina caught up with her after the event, which involved a trip to the House of Lords to receive her award.

What a superstar!


Here's the poem

What would they think?

I have visited museums; been into a mock trench,

I have tasted the ration packs, and smelt the foul stench,

Of a war that killed more men than my mind can behold.

Of a people so unbelievably strong and so bold.


I have read of the politics –“Ferdinand” rings a bell,

The manoeuvres and battles, all the stories to tell.

Letters home to loved ones never again seen.

The songs sung to keep the spirits up and men keen.

I have heard of the men who saw such horrific sights,

That would chase them through their dreams in the night.


 And yet the museum experience of taste, smell, sound and sight,

Cannot bring to me the terrible horror and fright,

Of the 8.5 million who died in the fields,

In the hope a fairer place the world would yield.

But I watch the news sitting next to my mum,

And see the count of people injured, displaced from their homes.

There are millions today affected by wars,

That ,people believe, are for a fair and just cause.


We remember the soldiers who died through those years,

They gave up their lives so we could live without fear.

I ask “What would they think of our world today?”

My mum shakes her head, with a look of dismay,

“Oh Emily,” she says “Our hope is with you,

your friends and their brother and their sisters too,

To think of the lessons that millions would give,

To live the life they died for, that they hoped we might  live.”  

By Emily Dutson.    Age 9

Neil can sleep again

18th May 2016

Neil is losing beauty sleep, over what are the black rubber strips on roads that attach to a green box.


Caller Celine puts Neil out of his misery:

Phew - glad we sorted that one out!

Loo Rolls - over or under?

17th May 2016

loo roll tinaThe Great Toilet Roll Debate

The discussion raged this morning on Breakfast.

Great matters of state were pushed aside, on a day where we revealed couples bicker 2450 times a year (that's about 7 times a day).

Which way should a loo roll sit on its holder?

Boy oh boy, did we touch a raw nerve!? here's some texts:

Toilet roll has to be over that's why they pit the pattern on that side!

Good morning to you both. For me....the toilet paper HAS to be over. I even change friends if it's the wrong way! Julie

Scientifically having the toilet roll over creates more friction against the wall. If the roll is of the cheaper variety this causes the paper to rip or break off when you don't want it to, causing frustration and leading to more arguments. Andy St Austell

So, what did Cornwall's poll reveal?

Best text:

Has the world gone mad Tina and Neil agreeing when the topic is bickering? Think you two must be the best bickerers in the UK :-) Bob

We love you too Bob!
