SUNNY Eastbourne was the star of the small screen this morning as ITV’s Daybreak was broadcast from the Wish Tower beach.

Presenter Gethin Jones was filmed live from the beach and was surrounded by hundreds of residents and visitors during the breakfast television programme.

Star of the Hippodrome show Jimmy Cricket provided some light entertainment along with Eastbourne organist Chris Mannion as Gethin interviewed Olympic torchbearers Sue Barber and Sue O’Hara.

Both women will be carrying the torch through the streets of Eastbourne this afternoon.
