I think this is the beginning. We'll see it in music and fashion and all kinds of things and sometimes chaos comes before order.

– Kristin Chenoweth

Award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth has told Good Morning Britain that she thinks 'good' will come out of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Speaking about the tide of sexual abuse allegations coming out against the shamed Hollywood heavyweight, the West Wing and Glee star, who appeared in one of his musicals, said: "I am deeply hurt for the women. I like to see them coming out strong, not as victims. They're strong. I hate it for any women or man this has ever happened to - and let's be honest, I don't know of somebody who hasn't had situations they've had to get out of."

When asked by Richard Madeley whether she's personally had a negative experience with Weinstein, the Emmy award winner said: "Do you know what, I really don't want to comment on that at this point. What I would like to say is I think there can be good that comes of it. I think this is the beginning.

Grey's Anatomy writer on Hollywood's 'sordid history' of sexism

I don’t have a female colleague in this town who doesn’t have stories like mine

– Krista Vernoff

A Hollywood writer has told Good Morning Britain stories of the appalling sexism she's experienced in the industry, claiming misogyny has 'never gone anywhere'.

Grey’s Anatomy writer and executive Krista Vernoff told GMB of how a show's boss belittled her at a meeting by reading her script before asking: "Did someone help you write it?". On a separate occasion another male showrunner asked her about her sex life in front of a room full of people.

Speaking to presenters Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Krista said: “We have a long history, a sordid history, of this kind of thing and it’s never gone anywhere. And it’s sort of thrilling at this moment that these very powerful actresses have come out and said ‘me too’."

She also spoke of her guilt over knowing she would have worked with Weinstein if given the chance, despite knowing of his reputation.

Should employees get paid leave to care for pets?

I didn't really cry when I got divorced but I was distraught when I lost Sam

– Liz Jones on how much losing her pet dog affected her

Should workers be given paid leave to look after their pets? You might think the question is barking mad but it follows a case in Italy where a woman has been allowed to claim sick pay after taking time off work to care for her unwell dog.

Sixty-seven percent of Good Morning Britain viewers said in a Twitter poll that they don't think people should get paid leave but animals are now recognised as part of the family in a landmark decision by a judge in the Italian courts. This comes after several UK companies - including the drinks firm Brewdog - have allowed their employees up to five days off to settle a new dog into their home.

This morning we spoke to entrepreneur and businessman Alex Proud who employs around 100 people and doesn't think they should be allowed paid leave when a pet falls sick or dies.

With over 4.2 million leasehold homes across the country and service charges reaching between £2.5 billion and £3.5 billion a year, the Government says it wants to fix problems in the property industry, drive down costs and protect consumers from a small minority of rogue agents.
