Jewel Of The South Final Episode Of Series Tonight

This evening (Thursday) will see the final episode of this season's Isle of Wight: Jewel of the South Summer air on Channel 5.

The episode gets underway with Sandown Carnival organisers keen to drum up new custom.

Café owner Vivette Fryer is planning a barbecue to give revellers a taste of her authentic Caribbean cooking.  

But will the unpredictable British weather scupper her best laid plans?

At the Isle of Wight Bus and Coach Museum in Ryde, it’s an exciting day for the volunteers who have spent years meticulously restoring an old bus that served on the Island almost 100 years ago.  

It’s the moment of truth as they crank up its vintage engine for the very first time.

In Colwell Bay, former kite surfing champion Tom Court is making the most of the windy weather to brush up on his skills and practice a few of his epic moves, ready for his next big competition. 

In Seaview, following the popularity of his trademark gin, local distiller Xavier Baker’s latest offering is spiced rum, made from some of the Island’s locally grown fruits and botanicals.

With Cowes Week looming, it’s a golden opportunity for Xav — who appeared on Topping in the Morning recently — to test out the fruits of his labour at the world-famous regatta.

In Downend, at Robin Hill Country Park, Laura Baxter and her colleague Verity McCormick are preparing for one of the most spectacular events of the summer – Night Glow – a choreographed display of hot air balloons that light up the sky.

The crowd have gathered, but with winds looking a little too gusty, the chances of launching them are still up in the air.

Isle of Wight: Jewel of the South is on Thursday at 8pm on Channel 5.
