THE sunny Isle of Wight has been showcased on national television today, with Sandown beach in the spotlight.

This Morning presenter Josie Gibson filmed from the golden sands of the bay, where a This Morning branded deckchair was in prime position.

Across today and tomorrow, Josie, and Loose Women presenter Jeff Brazier, will be trying out a variety of beach and water activities, while sampling some of the Isle of Wight’s well known food and drink.

They will also be chatting with locals and visitors in Sandown and Ventnor, including artists and performers, on the Island for Ventnor Fringe.

Working with Visit Isle of Wight, the ITV competitions team will be showcasing some of the activities and scenery the Island has to offer.
