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. And watch this hilarious video. It was the inspiration for our geting stuck stories. Turns out that Holly Day in the Love Truck, got stuck in a car wash yesterday at Chiverton Cross.

We talked inventions after a man in London has invented weight loss chocolate. Tina would invent painfree high heels; Neil - a money tree Suggestions included Densil = perfect woman; Ian - a cloning machine; Mark - an app giving you an extra 20 secs thinking time when asked - does my bum look big in this? and and anti foot in mouth device; Clare - and I will obey pill for men - Tina did promise to obey on her wedding vows, but only because the vicar told her hubby would have to worship her which is much harder!!

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.”
