What would you say if someone told you that picking your nose (and eating it!) could actually be good for you? Well according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, your bogies contain a raft of health benefits, providing good bacteria which help the teeth and form a mucus barrier against bad bacteria.
But should you encourage your children to do it? Have your say in our poll!
Over 215,000 people have pledged to Be Kind as part of This Morning’s anti-bullying campaign. One person who was especially keen to support our cause was 12-year-old street dance star Junior Frood who refused to give up his love of dance, despite school bullies taunting him over his talent.
Last month Junior performed live in our studio, and one person watching was Stepping Out star Amanda Holden. Find out what happened when she invited Junior to perform in front of a live West End audience!
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…
