'A conman stole my parents' home'

After receiving a call from ‘Gerry at the bank’ to tell them there had been fraudulent transactions on their account, Donald and Margaret, who both have dementia, handed over their confidential details. Unknown to them, Gerry was actually Syed Bukhari, a conman who used the details to gain access to the couple’s life savings. He spent the money on luxury holidays, and used £10,000 for a hair transplant. He even sold the couple’s home.

After Syed was finally jailed for eight years last week, we’re joined by Mark Williams-Thomas, alongside Donald’s son Graeme to explain why his dad and stepmum are still fighting to reclaim their home.

Have you ever thought about how strong your vagina is? Mum of three Kirsty Wright reportedly has the strongest lady parts in the UK! She uses Jade Eggs - made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow’s online brand ‘Goop’ - to improve her bladder control and pelvic floor.

At war with my neighbour... over a trampoline

You can choose your house, but you can’t choose your neighbours - something Sarah Duckworth and her family know all too well having endured two years of ‘hell’ living next to Loretta Diplacido.

Mum Sarah Duckworth joins us from her home in Leeds, and founder of Homeowners Alliance Paula Higgins is in the studio to shed some light on the neighbours’ dispute.
