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.

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.
