'Our dad died under Dr Barton's care'

It’s the story that shook us all this week. That of Dr Jane Barton, the woman at the centre of the report which found hundreds of patients killed by unnecessary painkillers at Gosport War Memorial Hospital.

One of those is Stanley Carby, who died aged 65 under Dr Barton’s care in 1999. Among the findings, the papers concluded Mr Carby had been given powerful drugs "without appropriate clinical indication". Mr Carby's daughters, Cindy Grant and Debbie McKay, share their story and explain why they are hoping a police investigation will be launched to bring justice over their father's death. Dr Ranj also joins us to discuss this shocking story from a medical perspective.

Should Lord Alan Sugar lose his job?

Who knew the racism would come from the Houses of Parliament, where I work. A Lord, no less.

– MP Dawn Butler

Lord Alan Sugar's BBC career was plunged into trouble yesterday after he sparked a race row by comparing the Senegal national football team to beach sellers. Hundreds of people slammed The Apprentice host's tweet and others called for his sacking. After initially failing to back down, Lord Sugar eventually removed the tweet and later admitted the tweet was 'misjudged' and that his attempt at humour 'backfired'.

But should Lord Sugar face hearing his catchphrase 'You're Fired' by BBC bosses? Joining us on the sofa is Labour MP Dawn Butler, who is urging the BBC to sack their star, and Lizzie Cundy who has defended Lord Sugar and says the tweet was a silly joke.

Love Island: Is Adam's behaviour unacceptable?

Last night Adam yet again showed no concern for Rosie's feelings, by continuing to get close to Zara right in front of Rosie's face. His behaviour has caused a public backlash with members of the public branding him a 'sociopath' and 'a snake'. Women's Aid has even got involved raising concerns about his 'emotionally abusive behaviour'. Is Adam just playing the reality TV game or is his behaviour completely unacceptable?

Love Island's Adam

Chief Executive of Woman's Aid Katie Ghose and Reality TV star Lauren Goodger will be telling us their views.

Bryony battles her fear of heights with help from the Speakmans

Today, the Speakmans ambush Bryony while she’s in our studio before taking her to top of the O2 roof to see if they can fix her fear.

Racist bullies tormented my son, now he's afraid to leave the house

Initially I saw the front of the shirt and it had well wishes and I was quite pleased. As he walked through the door that’s when I saw the back of the shirt. He had no clue what was written on the back. He was speechless. He started shaking his head and saying, ‘Why would they do this to me?’

– Juliet Ryan

Juliet Ryan’s teenage son returned home after his last day of school, wearing a shirt, which in typical Year 11 tradition, had been signed by his classmates. But as she looked closer at the scribbling, Juliet was horrified to find racial slurs emblazoned on her son’s back.

Juliet has decided to speak out about her son’s experience of racial bullying, in the hope she can stop any other child feeling as marginalised and victimised.
