It’s a care home, but not as you know it - because Apples & Honey Nightingale looks after both pensioners...and pre-schoolers. The intergenerational facility is the first of its kind and the benefits are clear to see, with residents no longer feeling socially isolated and experiencing heightened stimulation.
With childcare and eldercare both under pressure, is this the answer? Anneka Rice went to find out.
The attack happened on Friday. I didn’t post it until the Sunday, because I found out the girl who had attacked her was going around laughing about it, showing people the video. I thought if you want everyone to see it... I didn’t want to do it originally as it’s not a very nice film.
It’s the latest video to go viral - a heartbroken mum deciding to post a shocking video of her daughter being beaten up in an attempt to shame those responsible.
Claire Walton found footage showing her 13-year-old daughter Hollie being grabbed by her hair and thrown around as she walked home from school on Friday afternoon. Claire has decided to remove her daughter from the school and police say they're investigating, but why are schoolchildren still being subjected to such behaviour?
We're joined by Claire and Hollie on the sofa today, alongside Lucy Alexander who first launched our Be Kind campaign.
Over the past 10 years, there has been a surge in popularity for owning the fashionable French Bulldog as a pet. But many vets have warned potential owners to steer clear of the breed because of the health issues associated with it.
Joining us from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is head vet Shaun Opperman who says owners need to do more research before investing in this breed. Vet Emma Milne thinks French Bulldogs should be banned and owning one is tantamount to animal cruelty.
But breeder Sue Worrell believes it is ludicrous to suggest the banning of her beloved Frenchies and thinks they are no worse than any other breed.
It was July 2003, and Zoe Folbigg was getting on her usual train, the 8:21 from Hitchen, Hertfordshire to London when she spotted him - the beautiful ‘train man’. Every day Zoe would sit in the same carriage, praying he would notice her. A year later, she decided to take matters into her own hands and gave him her email address. He replied, thanking her for her note, but that he was in a relationship. But in January 2005, he got back in touch - his situation had changed and he wanted to go for a drink.
Four years later, the couple tied the knot and are now parents to two sons. Zoe joins us in studio as she releases her book detailing the chance encounter.
From Dark Justice to Guardians of the North, we’ve met various groups of paedophile hunters on This Morning who claim their evidence has helped contribute to hundreds of convictions.
Previously, police have been sceptical of the vigilantes’ work, claiming it puts child abuse investigations at risk. However, one chief constable has said that although he doesn’t condone these groups, he believes police and paedophile hunters could work together.
Today we meet Guardians of the North founder Joe Jones, who set up the organisation 17 months ago. So far they have secured 45 convictions - one only last Monday. Joe joins us in studio alongside one grateful mum whose daughter was involved in that recent case.
Last night, episode two of Liar was left on a cliffhanger as handsome surgeon Andrew was cold-called by another man, claiming to have information on teacher Laura - the woman accusing Andrew of rape. So is Andrew innocent of the crime? It’s just one clue in the puzzle with four episodes still to go!
One man who can relate to Andrew is Kayode Modupe-Ojo. Once a successful Manchester businessman, Kayode met a woman on social media and they arranged to meet. Nine hours after spending the night together, the police arrived on his doorstep, and arrested him on suspicion of rape. The case went to trial, but was eventually thrown out and Kayode was acquitted.
However, despite his innocence, Kayode’s reputation and his business was left in tatters. He struggled to trust women and previously recorded their consent on his phone before any sexual contact.
He'll be joining Phillip and Holly as he reveals why a false allegation ruined his life, and why he now wants to take the girl in question out for dinner in order to ‘get closure’.
The person I was before wasn't necessarily the real me
Her bum has been lifted, her cheeks chiselled, her breasts enlarged to a whopping 30J, and has even had six ribs removed to give her the tiny waist she longs for. 27-year-old Pixee Fox has spent almost half-a-million pounds to get the cartoon body she dreams of. Taking going under the knife to the very edge, she’s even fallen out with her family along the way.
Pixee, who appears on All 4's Plastic & Proud, joins us today to tell us why - even after 200 cosmetic procedures - she’s still not finished with creating her body her of dreams on the operating table.
