It's not sexual at all, it's escapism
A quarter of British households have a dog. But some people don't just want to own a dog, they want to be one.
Channel 4's one-off documentary The Secret Life of Human Pups explores the hidden world of ordinary men who lead extraordinary double lives. But what makes these grown men want doggy treats, belly rubs and squeaky toys?
We're joined by human puppy Tom Peters along with his ex-fiancée Rachael Watson.
TV: The Secret Life of the Human Pups is on Channel 4 at 10pm on Wednesday 25 May
He was walking towards us and I knew straight away that it was Matt
Last Wednesday, in a moving interview on This Morning, Pauline and Jim Green revealed the latest in their battle to be reunited with son Matthew, who had been found in Spain after going missing in 2010.
The couple's elation had turned to further heartache when they were told they couldn't be put in direct contact with him or even be told exactly where he was. But just moments before we went on air, they revealed they had heard from a doctor, who had asked them to fly out to help their son's recovery.
Yesterday Pauline and Jim were finally reunited with Matthew and they join us now from Spain - alongside Mark Williams-Thomas - to describe the emotional moment they laid eyes on their son for the first time in six years.
As a man is jailed for 28 months for the new offence of coercive abuse, we meet 30-year-old Gemma Doherty, who was forced to eat tuna, wear men’s clothes and run on a treadmill so that she would resemble fitness guru Gracyanne Barbosa - the true object of her obsessive ex-boyfriend, Mohammed Anwaar’s affections.
Agony aunt Deidre Sanders is here to explain the difference between coercive abuse and domestic violence.

Our age didn't matter at all ... I’s not just about age or finance or anything like that, it's about how you can relay that love and care to children who really, really need it
Age is no barrier to being great parents, according to 60-year-old Olympian Tessa Sanderson and her 54-year-old husband Densign White.
This week the couple introduced their adopted three-year-old twins - who arrived with them as poorly four-month-old babies - in a magazine interview.
Defiant about becoming parents later in life, the pair say they have more than enough energy to handle toddlers Ruby Mae and Cassius, and want to offer hope to others looking to adopt.
