Top five headlines you’re waking up to

  1. The cost of childcare for young children in England has increased up to seven times faster than wages over the past few years, according to a TUC report. The study shows that the average pay of parents with a one-year-old child has risen by 12 percent between 2008 and 2016, while childcare costs shot up by 48 percent. We’ll be discussing the eye-watering childcare bills in more detail during the show.

  2. Storm Brian is expected to batter parts of the UK on Saturday with winds of up to 50mph. The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for the strong southwesterly winds in England and Wales. The wild weather, caused by a "weather bomb" over the Atlantic Ocean, may cause coastal flooding and affect transport.

  3. Model Penny Lancaster bravely revealed how she was sexually assaulted as a teenager. On ITV’s Loose Women, the 46-year-old alleged how her drinks had been spiked and the next thing she remembered was waking up face down on a bed with an industry professional on top of her. She said: “Like in the series Liar, my drink was drugged and I can't remember much of what happened. I just know he was on top of me enjoying the experience, but I certainly wasn't. I don't remember much more.”

  4. The British Film Institute has withdrawn Hollywood’s movie producer Harvey Weinstein's Fellowship honour, in the wake of the sexual assault allegations made against him by over 40 women in the industry. The institute said allegations of his "appalling conduct" are in "direct opposition to the BFI's values".

Have Halloween costumes become TOO scary for children?

Mum Siobhan Freegard thinks Halloween costumes have become too scary and should come with an age rating, similar to those used in the film industry. But Halloween enthusiast Chris Walton thinks this is a bad idea.

Website runner Siobhan revealed parents have told her they find some costumes to be 'terrifying', citing killer clowns who carry meat cleavers as an example. “Children get nightmares about them when they’re outside the windows. They’re little kids, they can’t distinguish the difference between the fact that that’s a person in a costume dressed up,” she told Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley.

Millionaire couple swap lives with family who live on £171 a week

He taught me how to be a better father

– Millionaire Matt Fiddes

Would you swap lives with another family for a week? Today we met two couples who did exactly that for a Channel 5 documentary - and it was a true awakening for both.

Andy and Kim Leamon, who are married with two children, live on just £171 a week after paying their bills and mortgage for their ex council house in Southampton. Their family swapped places with millionaires Matt and Monique Fiddes and Matt's two children - who are used to a lavish six- bedroom home in the Wiltshire countryside.

The Fiddes spend £16 a week on avocados alone, which is more than half of the Leamon's whole food budget. And although Matt and Monique found their temporarily smaller wallet difficult they say their family ended up better for it.

After their swap the two families met for the first time on the Good Morning Britain sofa to share their insights - would the Leamons swap permanently if given the chance?
