The dangers of trampoline parks: What you need to know

Trampoline parks have increased by 3000% since 2014 and one orthopaedic surgeon told Good Morning Britain he had seen a 92% increase in trampoline accidents in the weeks following a park opening near his hospital.

GMB has also learnt that only 50% of trampoline parks have signed up to new safety guidelines.

Earlier we spoke to Liza Jones who was severely injured at the Flip Out trampoline park in Chester. The branch are currently under investigation after three people reportedly broke their backs in one day after jumping 4m into a foam pit.

Penalties for using your phone while driving: What you need to know

A Good Morning Britain investigation has found five high-profile celebrities appearing to use their phones at the wheel and then posting the footage online.

It comes as the Department of Transport today increases penalties for using a mobile while driving in England, Scotland and Wales. New drivers (those who have had their license less than two years) will be disqualified and made to resit their test and more experienced drivers will see fines doubled to £200 with six points on their license.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: “It’s totally unacceptable, it’s extremely dangerous. We’ve had a whole chain of fatal accidents in this country caused by it. It’s time it stopped.”

Should teachers and pupils connect on social media?

Would you be happy if your child's teacher Facebooked them - in and out of the classroom? And would you mind if they were instant messaging, or sending a Snapchat, tweet or Instagram to one another?

As Good Morning Britain found there's been a 60 percent rise in inappropriate contact between teachers and pupils online, the NSPCC has exclusively told us that they're expecting schools to ban social media communication between the two.

But with one in five parents we spoke to saying they think it's acceptable, who is right?

We visited one school that encourages social media interaction and another that has banned it.

High street sizes: What you need to know

Are you different clothes size in every shop? A Good Morning Britain investigation put the UK high street to the test to see if UK sizes are uniform across all stores.

A OnePoll survey commissioned by GMB found that 92% of women in the UK don’t fit into the same size clothes across the high street.

Of the 1,800 women polled, 83% were forced to buy a larger size, while one in three say fitting into a larger size has a negative impact on their self-esteem.

Frustrated shoppers are keen for a standardised guide, with 82% of women surveyed saying sizing should be uniform across the country.

GMB put shops on trial, with size-16 model Gemma Cruickshank trying on clothes in various popular stores. While some fit perfectly, other items were too tight or couldn’t be done up.

Fad diets: What you need to know

More than half of us are planning on going on a diet in the New Year - but will we be trying the right diets? Almost a third of us have tried a fad diet in the past and 40 per cent of people who've tried a fad diet haven't lasted longer than two weeks.

This comes as Public Health England exclusively reveal to GMB that 41 per cent of 40 to 60 years olds are more likely to be obese or suffer from a heart condition than 20 years ago.

So, from tomorrow (Tuesday 3rd January), GMB is saving the UK from fad diets and helping the nation lose weight, once and for all!

Is your 'faux fur' actually real?

A Good Morning Britain investigation has found examples of fake fur on sale in high street stores that is actually REAL.

In one day Katy Rickitt found real fur masquerading as fake in three leading stores, two of which have publicly claimed they are fur-free.

Campaigners say stores are betraying their customers in pursuit of profits.

Humane Society International (HSI) work on animal protection issues around the world and they have offered advice on telling faux fur from the real thing.

Roxy's happy ending!

Roxy the French Bulldog won over the hearts of everybody at GMB when she visited this morning.

Beautiful Roxy, who was smuggled into the country, has been adopted by a loving family since authorities discovered her and a number of other illegally smuggled puppies.

Roxy was illegally imported from Lithuania and seized at Dover, then quarantined by the Dogs Trust.
