Sitting Squat Challenge: Bakwate the gorilla

We had a wild intruder in the studio today, when Bakwate the gorilla wasn't monkeying around with our studio equipment, he took part in our Sitting Squat Challenge. They say gorilla's are six times stronger than adults, so surely this challenge should have been easy for him.

We put two famous quick fix diets to the test - do they work?

Have you ditched your January diet? If that's a yes, you are not alone. Two thirds of us have already given up - BUT before you reach for a 'Quick Fix' in February - think again.

Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow are all reported to be fans of juicing - BUT - do quick fixes work and are they safe?

With the help of GMB viewers and self-confessed fad diet addicts, Shantelle and Emma - we put two of these quick fixes to the test.

Any-fish traybake

When we say any fish, we mean any fish; if its got fins, it will probably work.

The combination of roasted fennel, lemon, garlic and new potatoes is such a good one it goes with everything from salmon to sea bass.

This is definitely a recipe where it’s worth experimenting with the more sustainable (and often cheaper) types of fish such as coley and pollock.
