Fear of the dentist caused me to pull out my own teeth

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: 'Online bullying should be a criminal offence'

I'd like to say 'what is it that goes through your head?'

– Katie would like to meet Harvey's online trolls

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.

Should Britain ban the burka?

With the general election just 6 weeks away, the political parties are setting out their key manifesto points in a bid to win votes. So will UKIP’s pledge to ban the burka in Britain go down well with the electorate? Party leader Paul Nuttall says the garment is a barrier to social harmony and a security risk - but is he right?

Debating the issue today are Sahar Al-Faifi, who wears a burka herself and believes true integration should mean women can wear what they like, and Dr Taj Hargey, who has backed UKIP’s announcement, believing there is no logic behind Muslim women covering up in the UK.

Could *this* be the most popular tweet of all time?

Carter Wilkerson really loves chicken nuggets. So much so, that it has almost made him the author of one of the most popular tweets of all time - even beating Ellen DeGeneres' popular Oscars selfie!

Holly and Phillip chat to Carter, and we want to support him on his mission for a year's supply of chicken nuggets, so why not show your support and retweet him below?
