You Know Breast: Lorraine and Patsy Kensit launch breast cancer awareness series

As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lorraine was joined by Patsy Kensit to launch 'You Know Breast'; a campaign to raise awareness of the disease and encourage women to check their boobs which will run across the show throughout the month.

One in eight women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime and this year the cause is particularly close to our hearts as our colleague, Helen, was diagnosed just a few months ago. Speaking of Helen's diagnosis, Lorraine said, 'She's dealing with the whole thing with such grace and humour as she undergoes chemotherapy and, as always, we send her our love.'

Dr Alex explains why he went red in Love Island

On this summer’s Love Island, Dr Alex made headlines when his face flared up during his time at the sun-drenched villa.

Memes galore were shared across the internet poking fun at his rosy red cheeks. But there was a more serious side to his famous flushed complexion. Dr Alex has actually struggled with acne for years, and his skin medication made him particularly sensitive to UV rays, despite slapping on SPF50 sun cream.

Dr Alex joined our Dr Hilary Jones for a summer skin clinic. The duo of doctors were on call in the studio to answer your queries about summer skin troubles. Watch the video for handy hints and tips to help keep your complexion cool and calm in the summer heat.
