Bill Roache remembers co-star Anne Kirkbride

The day after she died… I walked towards that set, I felt her presence because she did have an incredible presence.

– Bill on co-star Anne Kirkbride

Coronation Street star Bill Roache chats to Richard Arnold ahead of co-star Anne Kirkbride's memorial at Manchester cathedral. Anne passed away in January surrounded by her husband and family.

Members of the public will be invited to attend the service and join with Anne's family and the Coronation Street cast and crew in the celebration of Annes life.

Bill was one of the last people to see Anne before she passed away, and recently revealed that she looked 'beautiful' on his last visit, just one day before she died.

Sharon Wood: 'I don't feel I can walk away'

I have five children, and I have to fight for justice and dignity for Christi and Bobby too

– Sharon Wood

It has taken almost 10 years for holiday company Thomas Cook to apologise for their role in the deaths of two young children at one of their resorts on the Greek island of Corfu. Bobby and Christi Shepherd were poisoned by carbon monoxide fumes caused by a faulty bungalow in their villa.

Now their mum Sharon Wood gives her first TV interview to Good Morning Britain to tell the story of her battle to get the holiday giant to admit any responsibility for what happened on that terrible night in 2006. The company eventually bowed to pressure to say sorry after an inquest two weeks ago reached a conclusion of unlawful killing.

She said: “I would like to think that in light of what’s happened and on reflection, that Thomas Cook will look hard at their social responsibility to their customers and try to identify with their customers. I’d also like Thomas Cook to head pushing through a new legislation so that safety is paramount within the travel industry.”

Is breast really best?

Breast or bottle? Mothers have long wrestled with the decision of how to feed a baby. While those who opt for breast have long felt they've had to fight to be accepted to do so in public, those who can't breast-feed or simply choose not to, say they feel judged.

A survey by Channel Mum shows 69 percent of bottle feeding mums have been judged negatively and 41 percent feel they've failed as a mum and failed their child because they don't breast feed.

We speak to three mums who tell us their experiences.
