For 11-year-old Billy Caldwell, life with a severe form of epilepsy was a constant battle. Suffering over 100 seizures a day, his mother Charlotte was completely at a loss as to how to help her son.
However, research and desperation led Charlotte to Los Angeles where Billy was prescribed cannabis oil in a bid to control his seizures. After returning to their home in Northern Ireland, Charlotte says the use of the oil has made a huge difference in reducing Billy’s life threatening fits.
However, when their supply dwindled and they could not afford the travel costs to the USA, Charlotte became desperate once more. Luckily, one doctor -Dr Brendan O’Hare- stepped in with a lifeline, and made medical history when he prescribed Billy cannabis oil here in the UK.
Charlotte joins us today - alongside Billy - to tell us more.
What would you say if someone told you that picking your nose (and eating it!) could actually be good for you? Well according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, your bogies contain a raft of health benefits, providing good bacteria which help the teeth and form a mucus barrier against bad bacteria.
But should you encourage your children to do it? Have your say in our poll!
Ahoy there shipmates!
Today Alison is literally pushing the boat out to help launch the Royal National Lifeboat Institution's annual MayDay campaign.
For many of us MayDay means a bank holiday, but for the crews of the 237 RNLI lifeboat stations around the country, Mayday is a distress call that can see them drop everything to rush out to sea to put their lives on the line to save others, with staggering results.
Since it was founded in 1824 the RNLI has saved over 142,200 lives, and as Alison discovered when she visited the amazing St David's Lifeboat Station in Wales, this incredible achievement is made more so by the fact that 95 per cent of RNLI personnel are volunteers and all their work is funded entirely by donation.
So make sure you report to your TV screen ship shape and Bristol fashion, to find out more about this incredible organisation and to see Alison take command of a lifeboat (albeit for about 30 seconds), as it puts to sea in spectacular fashion.
None of us particularly enjoy going to the dentist, but for 30-year-old Sarah Boalch, a trip to the local surgery was out of the question. Her phobia was so severe that she even tried to pull out some of her own teeth to avoid an appointment.
Suffering from constant pain, her fear prevented her from getting help and even impacted on her job as a singer as the crowd made fun of her teeth. Now, at her wits’ end, Sarah has asked for the Speakmans' help.
Will she be able to face the dentist’s drill? It’s time to find out…

Katie Price is no stranger to public criticism, but she has zero tolerance for online trolls who have continued to target her 14-year-old son Harvey, who is partially blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome.
Last month, Katie set up an online petition - calling for online abuse to be treated as a criminal offence and those caught to be registered offenders. With over 213,000 signatures on her petition so far, Katie Price is here to tells us why online trolls have forced her to take action and why she’s pledged support of our Be Kind anti-bullying campaign.
