To tip... or not to tip? That is the question!

It was recently revealed that restaurant chain Côte has been pocketing the service charge paid by customers, which has forced business secretary Sajid Javid to speak out that something needs to be done.

We are joined by Dave Turnbull from Unite the Union, and chef Ed Baines. We will also be chatting to cabbie Howard Taylor, and hairdresser Nicky Clarke to find out their views on tipping.

Are you protesting over YOUR hard-earned tips?

Do you know where your tips go?

It seems things are hotting up in the kitchen as indignant waiters and waitresses up and down the country call for public support in a battle to hold on to their hard-earned tips!

Staff at major restaurant chains say they're being forced to 'pay to work' on some shifts because of a tipping policy that means they have to hand over cash to their bosses at the end of the night - is this you?

If you work in any customer service based role and often find your tip pot being skimmed by your employer, then we'd love to hear from you. Get in touch by emailing before 10am on Tuesday 25 August with your story. Please use TIPPING in the subject line and include your name and a contact number. 18+ T&Cs apply.

This is the second airshow crash this month and the third fatal one this year in the UK, which only adds to the debate over the safety of these types of displays.

To discuss this latest tragic event and the future of air shows, aviation Safety Investigator, David Gleave and Neil McCarthy, friend of Andy Hill and former display pilot join us today in the studio.
