Philip Schofield tells Pirate FM how Cornwall helped him get into showbiz.

He is unveiling a blue plaque on the site of the old Cosy Nook theatre in his hometown of Newquay.

He performed there before it was torn down in the nineties.

And the presenter has told Neil and Tina at Breakfast it's still got memories: "I worked my way up from a mouse to Prince Charming and the only reason I really did Prince Charming was because I got to kiss Cinderella and for the transformation scene ... bearing in mind we were about 12 ... Cinderella had a twin sister. So not only did I get to kiss Cinderella I go to kiss her sister as well!"

The TV presenter went on to say that "I'm A Celebrity" is the only reality show he would ever consider doing. He once visited the Aussie jungle to see where it was made: "I think people still go in there imagining that there are going to be pizza deliveries in the evening and it is absolutely not the case. They are isolated in the camp with security guards all around them; nobody can get out or get in. But, the set up was amazing and I thought at that time, 'I would love to do this'. I think I would just like to sleep out in the Australian jungle."
