Neil and Tina have been learning all about autism

19th May 2014


Today, we had Cornish mum, Silvia Salib on the show to talk about her son being diagnosed with autism, and just how it has affected her family.  It was ahead of Scott Temple's morning show being broadcast live from the SPECTRUM Pearl Centre in Truro.  

You can listen again to the full interview with Tina and Silvia here.

Tina also chatted to Robin Gunsom, from SPECTRUM


Spectrum is a charity that supports all aspects of those touched by autism.

To find out more, pop along to the Pearl Centre in Truro, or contact them via their website.

Ashley RobertsFormer Pussycat Doll, Ashley Roberts is on Neil's 'list'

Yeah - not a great way to start chatting to a celebrity - but Neil did tell former Pussycat Doll, and Dancing on Ice Judge, Ashley Roberts, that she was on his 'list'...stunned is all we can say.

Have a listen to find out what she's been up to lately, and her views on life in the limelight.


Big Cash Weekends

And the penultimate winner of £500 this morning was Ann Clarke from St Austell.  She was caller no.2 and answered the phone by saying "Michael Jackson".

Ann explained how she'd delayed going into the shops on Saturday, just to hear the Big Cash Artist, and then she set her alarm for 7.30am to make sure she was awake...just in case!

With a big birthday coming up for her husband next month, Ann's gonna treat them both with her win!

You could be our final Big Cash Weekend winner on Tuesday 27th May ('cos it's a Bank Holiday next week!).  Find out how, here.
