After reflecting on the shocking statistics, parenting expert Jo Frost takes viewers’ calls on their children’s sleep issues - including a question from Laura who can't get her two sons to sleep on time.
There were difficult to watch scenes in Emmerdale last night, as Rhona Goskirk was subjected to a harrowing rape by her abusive new husband Pierce - on their wedding night. Actress Zoe Henry, who plays Rhona, joins us to discuss the shocking storyline and tells us why she is surprised the episode even made it to air.

With the general election just 6 weeks away, the political parties are setting out their key manifesto points in a bid to win votes. So will UKIP’s pledge to ban the burka in Britain go down well with the electorate? Party leader Paul Nuttall says the garment is a barrier to social harmony and a security risk - but is he right?
