Our Brainteaser this morning was:
After 25 years, we are fed up of what? Congratulations to Vegas from Camelford, correctly guessing, at the last minute - that it's kids living at home.  Vegas' 14 year old had better watch out!

Stuck on you?

Watch this hilarious video.

It was the inspiration for our geting stuck stories.  It seems loads of us have been stuck in loos;  stuck to loos (with superglue);  used superglue to stick a toupe to heads; stuck beads up noses, and in ears;  licked ice cubes and had tongues stuck to them; stuck to guttering (whilst riding a pony) and fell into a pile of know what!

Turns out that Holly Day in the Love Truck, got stuck in a car wash yesterday at Chiverton Cross.

Andrew and Lucy win their dream Cornish Wedding with Pirate FM!

Andrew and Lucy win their dream Cornish Wedding with Pirate FM!

A deserving Perranporth couple are planning their future together after winning their dream Cornish wedding, worth thousands of pounds.

Lucy Cruse and Andrew Vickers entered Pirate FM’s ‘Win a Wedding’ competition earlier this year and were one of four randomly-selected couples who made it through to the final.

Andrew and Lucy met nearly three years ago. After the premature birth of their baby son, Owen, last year they decided to get married as soon as they could.

“Last year I had a mysterious illness which resulted in time off work.” said Lucy. “Then I fell pregnant and was in-and-out of hospital all the way through. I ended up with Pre-eclampsia and baby Owen had to be born early. We both nearly didn't make it but now that is all fine. This prize will be the ultimate ending to a stressful couple of years!"

The prize package contains everything the couple needs for their special day including wedding rings, dress, stationary, photography and videography, DJ, a honeymoon and even the wedding and reception location at The Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club, near Bodmin. All the items and services have been offered by local businesses here in Cornwall and total over £10,000.

Each couple in the final were asked to perform a song which was broadcast across the Duchy. Lucy and Andrew performed a version of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode”.

“We feel completely overwhelmed and just so grateful to everyone that voted,” continued Lucy. “We are eternally grateful for such an amazing prize.”

The couple employed a number of high-profile tactics to secure votes including handing out leaflets, publicising themselves on social media and even shaving the voting details into the back of Lucy’s horse.

Andrew said: “We were walking through Perrancoombe and someone slowed their car down to say they had voted for us. We didn’t even know who they were!

“It’s quite overwhelming, and it’s really heart-warming how many people voted for us. Thank you to everyone.”

More WHAT, are bought every day, than people born?

Wrong answers included fuel, T-bags, potatoes, TVs, bread, nappies, wipes, McDonalds, Cocal Cola, and mobile phones.  Tina was harsh as the correct answer was: i-phone but a late entry from Rik in Liskeard got him the CD!

Toys in the attic worth on average £600

After a Mirror article revealing that there's enough Scalextrix to lap the world 6 times, we asked what you had stashed in the attic.

Tina's Dad gave her a Sinclair C5 (some cruel people said this explains Tina's lack of parking skills!!), could anyone beat that?!  Gary from Penryn, has a tank - a water tank!  Dan has boxes of Dinky Toys in mint condition, Sarah has a model church she's built and some dolls houses and Sara had a double mattress that they couldn't get out through the loft hatch.  But best of all, John's daughter, on moving house to Callington, found an artifical leg in the loft!

And we are getting ready for the Royal Cornwall Show

Come and meet us on Stand 640 with Dales Cornwall. Neil and Tina will be there each day, giving out the answers to next Monday's £1000 minute.

You can win a £250 fuel card with Dales Cornwall by entering a unique code on their facebook page

The Secret Sound announcement
