Could it be a celebrity summer in Cornwall?

Jude Law has been spotted at Holywell Bay, Philip Schofield has been to Newquay and Dancing on Ice star Matt Lapinskas has been drinking champagne at Perranporth.

It has emerged that the Prime Minister is expecting to take his summer holiday in Cornwall for the fourth year in a row.

David Cameron's wife Samantha gave birth to their daughter Florence during their stay here in 2010.

She has the middle name Endellion, after St Endellion, close to the village where they usually stay.

Lynn Gould is from Fowey's Tourist Information Centre. She reckons the Duchy has always been a draw.

"I don't quite see Fowey as a playground at the moment. We've always had famous people coming here. When the Coliseum, which is many, many moons ago, was on the beach at Carlyon Bay, then anybody who played there stayed in Fowey. It was just the place to be.

"It's beautiful, isn't it? It's just lovely to come to, and I think Cornwall itself has worked very hard in improving how it looks and the quality here, so Cornwall has become a prime destination."
