With news that a 15-year-old girl has been suspended from school for wearing make-up to class, we’re asking if school pupils should ever be allowed to wear make-up.

But what do you think?
You may recognise our next guest; Paul Hayden was in charge of security at This Morning for many years. In September 2016 Paul’s son Ricky (a celebrity bodyguard) was attacked with a machete outside his home. Ricky, a beloved son, brother and uncle, died from his injuries in hospital and earlier this month his attacker was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
Devastated by their loss, Ricky’s family are now campaigning to change the laws for buying, selling and carrying knives. Paul joins us alongside Alison Cope whose 18-year-old son was stabbed to death, and former Met Detective Sue Hill to talk about the rising rates of knife crime and what should be done.

Brand new series Gypsy Kids: Our Secret World looks at the lives of young travellers and the daily struggles they experience for not fitting in with the crowd. And one person in particular, 13-year-old Ben Bennett, knows all about being treated differently.
Ever since he entered mainstream education, Ben has been persecuted and suffered at the hands of bullies for being a Romany gypsy, and as a result has been forced out of 11 different schools.
Fearing for his safety, Ben's parents reluctantly made the decision to homeschool their son. Ben and his mum Nathalie join us to tell us how they're working to change attitudes towards the travelling community - and how they want to end the persecution that gypsies face every day.

If you have walked into any city park this summer you may have noticed dozens of metal canisters lying around. But do you know what they are? Well they were probably nitrous oxide, also known as 'laughing gas' or 'hippy crack' and used by people to 'get high'. Although recent laws have banned the use of legal highs for human consumption, they are still readily available and many people still take the risk.
Zoe Dunford is one mother who knows only too well the potentially fatal consequences of these kind of drugs after her son Aaron, 22, was found dead, surrounded by 200 empty canisters of nitrous oxide.
Zoe joins us now to raise awareness of these kinds of drugs and to tell us how she's urging people not to take a chance on their life for a few minutes of fun. Dr Zoe is also here to give us the medical facts about these so-called legal highs.
