A Matt Damon body double from west Cornwall appeared on ITV's Take Me Out last night.

Professional surfer and actor Lew Smart did a handstand as he entered the TV studio to be greeted by the show's host Paddy McGuinness.

All 30 girls involved in the show left their lights on as Lew, who runs Smart Surf School in Sennen with his two brothers, Sam and Seb, introduced himself.

Lew's mum and dad, who run a fish and chip shop in Sennen, also appeared in the show to talk about their son, as did one of his brothers.

The prime time television show sees 30 single girls stand behind lit podiums and a bachelor chooses one of the girls to take on a date to the island of Fernandos.

Each of the girls is able to illuminate a red light when they decide they are not interested in the man and the bachelor must choose one of those with white lights still illuminated to go out with.

As Lew introduced himself, all 30 girls left their white lights on. But it was his brother's revelation that he lived in a "love shack" at the end of his parents' garden which prompted the most red lights.

Lew ended up going on the date with a woman called Amanda, who McGuinness revealed was nicknamed "bungalow" because "there's not much upstairs".

Lew has written his own sitcom, Living The Part, which was shown at the Cornwall Film Festival, and has appeared as a body double for Matt Damon. He also had a part in Brad Pitt blockbuster World War Z.
