We surprise inspirational young carer Joshua Agate

Over the last two weeks we've been asking you to spend your time rather than your money this Christmas for our 1 Million Minutes campaign to help end loneliness.

Today we meet a young carer, nine-year-old Joshua Agate, who helps look after his mum who has disabilities and two younger siblings when his dad works away from home.

Joshua and his parents Kirsty and Ryan join us now alongside 'Action for Children' ambassador and actress, Jenny Agutter - and we had a little surprise for him!

We're not just a community, we're a family

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. The Prime Minister heads to Brussels today for a crucial European summit - just hours after being defeated in the Commons on key Brexit legislation. Eleven Tory backbenchers - including eight former ministers - rebelled against the government and voted in favour of giving Parliament a guaranteed final say on a future deal with the EU.

  2. A memorial service for the 71 people who died in the Grenfell Tower fire in west London will be held this morning at St Paul's Cathedral, six months after the disaster. The Prime Minister and members of the royal family - including the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry - will join survivors and bereaved families.

  3. The Oscar-nominated actress Salma Hayek claims the disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein once threatened to kill her. Writing in the New York Times, she describes him as a rage-fuelled 'monster' and alleges he made unwanted sexual advances and threats of violence against her. A spokesperson for Weinstein said Salma Hayek's allegations were 'not accurate'.

  4. Chris Froome has said he knows he 'hasn't done anything wrong' after he returned an adverse drug test at the Vuelta a Espana. The four-time Tour de France winner told ITV News he was "shocked" when he was told a urine test had revealed a concentration of a medication he takes for his asthma double that of the WADA threshold.

  5. An investigation’s been launched by the International Cricket Council into allegations that two Indian bookmakers offered to fix the third Ashes Test in Perth, which began overnight. The Sun claims they wanted £140,000 for details of rigged periods of play. But the cricketing authorities believe there's no evidence any players in the Test were involved.

However, Mrs May countered by claiming house-building and social housing reduced under the last Labour administration, adding: "Labour would produce failure for this country once again."

The Duchess said: “Volunteering is the best thing anybody can do. It doesn’t matter if you’re young, old, everybody's got a little bit of free time which they can give to help other people.”

Samantha Fox was one of the most photographed women of the 80s and like the Kim Kardashians of this generation, has never had any qualms about revealing her body - but she's in no rush to claim it's in the name of feminism.

The singer and former Page 3 model joined us this morning to talk about being a woman in showbiz and her new autobiography, which has made headlines due to allegations she's made about late singer and actor David Cassidy.

Baby born with heart outside her body 'came out kicking and screaming'

She literally came out kicking and screaming

– Naomi Findlay

A baby girl born with her heart outside her body is thought to be the first in Britain to survive the condition.

Little Vanellope Hope Wilkins was due to be delivered on Christmas Eve, before the rare condition meant she had to be born prematurely by caesarean section on 22 November at Glenfield Hospital in Leicester. She has since has three operations to have her heart put back in her chest.

Her mother Naomi Findlay joined Wednesday's Good Morning Britain three weeks after the miraculous birth to talk about her relief at her daughter's one in eight million survival.
