Television double act Dick and Dom were in St Ives on Monday to film the latest episode of their popular children’s show Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom.

Richard McCourt and Dominic Wood visited Italian restaurant Amore on the Quay to learn how to make pizzas – using different toppings to demonstrate how computers work.

Amore owner Marin Lleshi, who will appear in the show teaching Dick and Dom how to make the perfect pizza, said: “They are brilliant guys and they are very funny.

“There couldn’t be better publicity than this – I was a bit nervous but it was good.”
