Take part in our benefits phone-in

On Monday we're discussing benefits, and we'll be taking your calls in our phone-in.

What do you think of the benefits cap? Has it affected you? Has it forced you to go to work? Maybe you think people should be required to look for work? Perhaps, like some, you think benefits should be capped after two children?

Whatever your opinion, we'd love you to join our conversation, and we'd really like you to Skype us. For a chance to get on air, email us at thismorning@itv.com with a daytime phone number and if appropriate your Skype name.

I think he was happy to see me when I arrived. It's quite intense in there so nice to have a friend

– Charlotte on Gaz

Wey aye man! Geordie Shore's most canny lass Charlotte Crosby admitted it was an intense time venturing back into the murky waters of reality TV.

She makes an appearance on the second series of MTV's Ex On The Beach, where she will be reunited with ex-boyfriend and fellow Geordie Gaz Beadle.

But after the initial smiles there is the inevitable drama when Gaz hooked up with someone else!

Charlotte also spoke about her recent weightloss. Going from size 16 to size 8 after losing two and a half stone, this year she has released the fastest-ever-selling workout DVD.

She said: "I can't believe it really. I've lost about two and a half stone in seven months."

It's tradition that you don't wear a coat in Newcastle. If you did you'd get a funny look!

Beverley Knight talks perfect scents!

When I look in the mirror I see my mum staring back. There is a picture of mum at home with this hairstyle so I use that for my inspiration

– Beverley Knight

Beverley Knight admits she changes her SMELL according to each role she plays.

The singer is currently starring in Memphis the Musical, which follows the fame and forbidden love of a radio DJ called Felicia Farrell who wants to change the world and a club singer who is ready for her big break.

And Beverley admits she had to find the perfect scent in order to get into character.

She said: "I really relate and respond to smells! Felicia is fresh, vibrant and sassy but also ambitious so wanted to choose a perfume that represented her. I had a very different one in The Bodyguard."

Beverly admitted the show is perfect fit for her after growing up surrounded by 50s music.

She said: "My mother was a huge fan of Sam Cooke so I was already steeped in the sounds of blues and gospel. It was all I listen to."

Beverley Knight also gave a sensational performance of Some Day from the show which you can watch below.
