How groomed do you have to be to get a job at a top London hotel? Bosses at London's Dorchester Hotel have come under fire for a list of alleged demands to their female employees.
The list focused on women’s appearance and included demands to avoid oily skin, ensure regular manicures and shave their legs, even if wearing tights. But is it acceptable for the hotel to ask their female staff to dress to impress, or is it simply sexist?
We’re joined by journalist Genevieve Mullen who thinks the hotel has every right to demand high standards and broadcaster Kate Smurthwaite who think it’s a case of double standards.

Is child abuse rife in the UK? The headlines of recent days suggest it could be. More than 20 former football players have come forward alleging child sexual abuse by several coaches, and away from the world of sport, a teacher and a teaching assistant have been jailed just this week for inappropriate relationships with underage pupils. So is this an epidemic and, if so, what can we do to tackle it? As parents what signs should we look out for and how can we encourage our children to tell us if they're being abused?
We’re joined on the sofa by former police officer Mark Williams-Thomas, who exposed Jimmy Savile, and our agony aunt Deidre Sanders, who receives daily letters from victims of child abuse.
I was a loving person on Death Row. I cared for men, even though they were murderers, I held them in my arms when their mothers died. All along, I wanted to be a good person.

Far from it being an act of intimacy between two people who care about each other, 18-year-old Aleexandra is planning to sell her virginity to a complete stranger, for a minimum of 1 million euro.
She's hoping that she will raise enough money to make her dreams of a university education, and a home for her family, come true. She joins us on the sofa to tell us more about a decision she is convinced she will never live to regret.
Back in February we met four-year-old Prince Charming Louie Elbourne, along with his twin sister Ava and their mum and dad Emma and Phil. The family had been through a devastating ordeal. Both children have cerebral palsy but because Louie's condition was worse than Ava's, he was denied the same life-changing operation on the NHS that Ava had been granted, giving her the ability to walk and leaving poor Louie to look on helplessly and ask why he can't do the same.
However, Louie was thrown a lifeline, as on the day they joined us, we heard the fantastic news that the family had raised the £70,000 needed to pay for the operation to be done privately in America. Today, after undergoing the pioneering surgery in the US, Louie is back in the UK on his new 'magic legs' and the whole family join us on the sofa.
