Ladram Bay Holiday Park near Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth saw ITV This Morning presenter Josie Gibson visit recently to try her hand at paddleboarding.

In a one-to-one lesson from professional paddleboarder Becky Dickinson, the former Big Brother winner managed to stand up initially, but then fell into the sea - along with a great deal of laughter from Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langford in the studio.

Josie described the views from Ladram Bay's beach in Budleigh Salterton as 'breathtaking'.

Ladram Bay director Zoe House said: "If guests this summer would like to follow in Josie's wake, we'd be delighted to provide them with a paddleboard to see if they could do any better.

"But if they would feel more confident in a kayak or motorboat, we hire those as well – and the views will be just as breathtaking!"
