'Never say never': Ross Kemp won't rule out EastEnders return

He's gone from EastEnders hard man to an award-winning journalist exploring some of the most extreme corners of the world and today Ross Kemp joined us to talk about his experiences in Southern Libya with refugees.

He described his journey from soap star to investigative journalist as something that happened "naturally" - but said "never say never" when asked if he'll ever return to Albert Square! He also gave us his thoughts about the pressures of being a soap star in light of recent speculation around Danny Dyer.

Watch the interview above to see what he said.

Exclusive: Lindsay Lohan claims she was 'racially profiled' at Heathrow airport

I should have listened to my mom, gone back home and gotten out of Los Angeles

– Lindsay Lohan on her troubled younger years

Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan has claimed she was "racially profiled" for wearing a headscarf at Heathrow airport yesterday.

In an exclusive interview live on GMB Lindsay told us: “You know what’s so interesting to me, when we look back at Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn these old Hollywood actresses They used to cover up the same way".

The actress and tabloid regular also spoke frankly about religion, her partying days, her friendship with "guiding light" and "second mother" Oprah Winfrey (they even meditated on the phone together last night!) and and why she thinks everyone should give Donald Trump a chance.

Top five headlines you’re waking up to

  1. NHS plans to cut the number of hospitals and hospital beds, as well as centralise services in 44 different areas of the country, must go ahead - according to the health think tank the Kings Fund - if the NHS is to survive financially. The Kings Fund has told GMB the government must earmark more money for community and social care budgets, in order for the transformation to take place, and it's essential for the longevity of the health service.

  2. England's schools are suffering from worsening teacher shortages, particularly in key subjects such as physics and maths, MPs have warned. The Government has failed to deal with the problem, missing recruitment targets for the past five years in a row, according to the Commons Education Select Committee. In a highly critical new report, it called for urgent action, including more focus on retaining teachers once they are in the classroom, and suggesting a cap on the number of hours teachers work.

  3. Labour is calling for an urgent review of government plans to revalue shop business rates (first time in seven years), as hundreds of small businesses face closure. On average, companies will see their tax bill increase by a staggering 177% from April. In some cases it's 400 %. Campaigners say if rates increases, independent shops will be forced to close, as it's not an affluent area and it survives on seasonal trade.

  4. Many peers contribute "absolutely nothing" to Parliament, a former lord speaker claimed as she alleged one member kept a taxi running outside while signing in to collect the £300 daily allowance. Baroness D'Souza suggested the "sense of honour" that used to come with being a member of the House of Lords had been lost.

  5. Specialist police officers have begun excavation work at what is believed to be the former home of double murderer Christopher Halliwell. The 53-year-old taxi driver, of Swindon, Wiltshire, murdered Becky Godden, 20, in January 2003 and Sian O'Callaghan, 22, in March 2011. He was handed a rare life sentence - meaning he will never be released - at Bristol Crown Court last year after being convicted of Miss Godden's murder.

David Baddiel tells dad's dementia story with the help of comedy

I wanted to show that dementia is a dark rainbow, it's not just one thing

– David Baddiel

New documentary The Trouble With Dad sees David Baddiel tell the story of his father's dementia and it seems comedy has helped him and his family to come to terms with the disease.

He spoke to us this morning about making the decision to expose his dad and his battle with Pick's disease to the world by making the documentary with his brother - admitting he "wasn't sure about it at all".

However, he decided their father isn't "a figure of pity" and explained how dementia is far more "complicated" than we might think and how the documentary show this.

"At the end of the day we feel our dad comes across well," he told us.
