A Cornish schoolgirl's charity fundraising has landed her a part in a Hollywood movie.

Pirate FM told you how ten year old Madison Glinski set out to raise £300 for Cornwall's children's hospice.

Instead, busking with a violin in St Ives and Truro has brought in more than £33,000.

On Sunday night's Surprise, Surprise on ITV Madison was told she was flying to California to meet the cast of Night At The Museum 3 - and get a cameo on screen.

She told Holly Willoughby, "It was just fantastic really. I couldn't believe I got to interview all the cast of Night At The Museum 3 - and just speaking to Ben Stiller was just incredible - taking part in the movie and being on the director's chair and shouting action.

"I know I'm very lucky compared to a lot of other children. And I enjoy helping other children."

Madison's proud mum watched the audience applaud her hard work - which also involved collecting supplies for children in Africa.

But the trip was not without hiccups. Viewers watched the ten year old and Ricky Gervais dissolve into fits of giggles as she tried to interview him.

Ricky ended up branding their encounter, "the best interview ever."

Madison said: "Ricky was so funny. I was doing my best not to laugh and be sensible but I couldn't."

Mum Terrasa said: "Madison is a very kind, caring little girl, who since a young age has been doing her best to raise money for children less fortunate than herself all over the world."

Sarah Stott is from Little Harbour, she said: "The money that Madison has raised for us will certainly be helping the children that come and stay with us have such a lovely time, it is all about making precious memories for them and Christmas is the perfect time to do that."

Come off the A30 at the Plusha turning, by the Esso garage.

Follow the B3257 through Congdon, Coodes Green, Bray Shop.

That brings you out two miles from Callington - turn right at that junction towards Callington.

Follow the main A388 towards Callington, past the Swingle Tree pub and turn left at the car garage, onto Station Road.

You're back on the B3257 - follow it for two miles under Pitt Hill.

At the one and only crossroads, take the left turning signposted for Luckett.

You follow that road down into the valley for about 3/4 of a mile.

Go past one farm on the right and then just before steep hill that goes down into the village, left to Deer Park Farm.

Go over a cattle grid and follow the lane down to the farmhouse.
