Check out the best advent calendars

Nothing is more exciting to children than counting down the days until Christmas, and nothing is more exciting to adults than eating chocolate and drinking booze.

Today we have the pick of the most wonderful advent calendars. From painting your nails to assembling Lego, to drinking a daily dram of whisky there really is something for everyone (and even the dog!)

Steve Wilson is here with more Christmas Calendars than there are advent days!

My husband didn't live up to my fantasy man

Ever since Fifty Shades of Grey stirred the loins of bored women up and down the country, there's been a surge in the amount of so-called mummy porn on the nation's bookshelves and iReaders. Behind the renaissance in erotica are an army of liberal-thinking women including author Jodi Ellen Malpas.

She has sold over 500,000 copies of her sexy novels but it seems her own love life doesn't compare to her fantasies. The erotica writer's marriage ended after she published her fantasy trilogy This Man, and says every woman needs a fantasy lover to spice up the reality of her real life.

I watched my son die

Losing a child is one of the most horrific things that can happen to a parent and something that Tony Broadbent has tragically experienced. He watched his only son Kyle fall to his death when they were working together on a building job two years ago.

Whilst coming to terms with his loss, a few days later Tony was charged with manslaughter - accused of being responsible for the death of his own child. Two years later Tony was finally acquitted by a unanimous jury who made their decision in minutes.

He's here today along with trauma counsellor Joy Griffiths.
