Made in Chelsea star Andy Jordan will perform live music from his upcoming album on the beach in Newquay, as part of a Truro-based charity’s surf event.

The TV heartthrob will perform at The Wave Project’s Surf Challenge event in the summer next year on Fistral beach. The event is a national surfing competition for those with autism.

It is the only event of its type to be held in the UK, and is supported by Surfing GB, the national body for surfing.

The news was announced through The Wave Project’s Facebook page: “Stoked to announce the legendary Andy Jordan will be playing a set from his new album at our Surf Challenge event at Fistral in June next year!”

The Wave Project, a not-for-profit organisation, uses the calming nature of the waves to help young people on the autism spectrum.

Mr Jordan came to Fistral earlier this year to help children with autism learn how to surf.

And not missing out on the opportunity, he took to the waves himself in slightly choppy Fistral conditions.

The Wave Project has gathered national and international recognition with European countries taking on board aspects of the project.

The project recently secured £10,000 from NHS Dorset to extend its reach out of Cornwall.

A Christmas party will be held on December 14 at Retorrick Mill, Mawgan Porth. An outdoor barbecue, fire pit, licensed bar and live music will all be offer. Tickers £15 for adults or £10 for children available from becky@waveproject.co.uk
