PHOTOS: DIY SOS crew come to Cornwall

The DIY SOS team have been spotted in Cornwall.

Pirate FM told you how the show's first big build of 2019 will be right here in the Duchy.

An advert went out in Carbis Bay near St Ives searching for traders to help a local family "rebuild their lives".

Now presenter Nick Knowles, who starred in I'm A Celebrity has been photographed in the area.

The team have arrived on site and the big build is now underway.

Local Tescos have organised a tea tent for the crew.

Kirsty Kilmurry-Arthur is the local councillor for St Ives west - and she's also providing refreshments for those involved.

"I got lucky enough to take charge of the refreshment tent on site from the BBC and all the Tesco’s in the area have bandied together and provided all the tent supplies for the whole project (coming in over £800 as we speak).

"The W.I. and other generous bakers, including the St Uny School PTA are baking and bringing homemade cakes every day and I’ve got 50 people on my rota to coordinate.

"We’re on to day two now and it’s all going well!"

Kirsty Kilmurry-Arthur, local councillor
