The Christmas they thought they'd never have...

A man who "died" six times on honeymoon has got a new heart and become a new dad. Thirty-four-year old Andrew Britton from Buckinghamshire collapsed and was on a life support machine for two weeks after a heart virus triggered six heart attacks leaving him in hospital for a year.

But now after a successful heart transplant and a baby boy Frank Fabio (named Fabio after his heart surgeon), former triathlete Andrew and his wife Lauren are having the Christmas they thought they'd never see. Myocarditis is a viral infection that attacks the heart and can happen to anyone. It can be caused by something as simple as a common cold if the bug gets into the bloodstream and reaches the heart. They join us now to talk about their experiences.

Good Morning Britain's Meal Appeal

We're asking YOU to help UK people in need and support Good Morning Britain's Meal Appeal as we approach the festive season.

Nearly a million people used food banks last year and figures released today in our exclusive survey with One Poll reveal that one in three parents that we spoke to have gone without a meal to their children can eat.

Redundancy, illness, domestic violence, family breakdown and debt are just some of the reasons people go hungry. There are many life events beyond our control and moments where families need help to get by.

We're want YOU at home to buy one extra item in your shopping basket to help another UK family. This could be a luxury item or even a store cupboard basic.

Rurik Jutting fit to stand trial

The British ex-pat has been accused of murdering Sumarti Ningsih and Seneng Mujiasi, who were found dead in his flat on November 1. The Cambridge graduate had been referred for psychiatric tests in Hong Kong earlier this month, but the judge ruled the 29-year-old was fit to stand trial after two weeks in a secure unit.

The trial will begin in July.

British-Iranian arrested in Iran released on bail

A British-Iranian woman who had been arrested in Iran for trying to watch a volleyball match has been released on bail, her relieved relatives have said.

Ghoncheh Ghavami was taken into custody by Iranian authorities in June, and kept behind bars despite going on hunger strike twice and an international outcry. The 25-year-old was found guilty last month of "propagating against the ruling system" and received a custodial sentence.

Iranian authorities released her on bail after she had served five months because Ghoncheh has been suffering from "intestinal problems". Her brother Iman Ghavami told ITV News she had been released to stay with her parents until the Court of Appeal decides if she has to serve the remainder of her sentence.

New anti-terror measures expected

A raft of counter-terror measures will be revealed by the Home Secretary today, with a ban on insurance companies shelling out the cost of terrorist ransoms.]

According to the Home Office:

  • Theresa May said the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill would make it a clear offence for firms to reimburse relatives or employers who pay a ransom
  • Islamic State (IS) linked terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq have been using kidnappings to raise funds - with the UN estimating the tactic has brought in £28 million over the past year
  • But the Home Office says there has been an element of "uncertainty" about whether UK-based insurers were prohibited from paying claims made by companies and families who had met ransom demands
  • The Counter-Terrorism Bill will force internet service providers (ISPs) to retain information linking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to individual users
  • Police chiefs are concerned young men and women have been radicalised by content published by terror groups online
