Cornish singer-songwriter Josh Curnow has narrowly missed out on a place in the Britain's Got Talent final.
Josh grew up in Wadebridge and now lives in Indian Queens. He's played in bars and pubs across the county and had high hopes of winning the ITV competition, which offers a chance to perform at the Royal Variety Show.
He certainly impressed the BGT judges in the semi-final with his rendition of Runnin' by Beyonce - but not enough to win the votes of the viewers and make it through to the final ten. He came in fourth place.
Josh may still have a chance at glory... if he is selected as one of the judges' wild cards
The Red Arrows won't be coming to Minehead this year following the announcement that the town's summer festival has suddenly been called off. Butlin's, who organise the long-running event, say it's because of new legislation introduced after the Shoreham air crash. More than 12,000 people attended the 2015 event last August.
It’s not a decision we have taken lightly, nor is it one that we like having to make, However, having assessed the new rules and taken everything into account, we felt we had no option. We understand that people will be disappointed but hopefully they will understand safety has to be our first consideration.
The team at Butlin’s and the Minehead Events Group are currently looking at options to replace the event, and say they will make an announcement if and when they have any news. It is more sad news for Minehead which has already lost out on the Real Ale Festival held at the Railway Station for this summer.
