Azad Chaiwala: Why have one wife, when you can have two?

Why have one, when you can have two? That’s the question posed by entrepreneur Azad Chaiwala. Azad has set up the websites and, which cater for men seeking a second wife. Azad insists his sites promote fidelity and old-fashioned values - and with close to 35,000 British members it seems there are plenty who agree.

But is this the end of healthy relationships? Bigamy is illegal in the UK, carrying a sentence of up to seven years - but Azad joins us today to discuss why he thinks there’s room in the dating world for polygamy.

I can't get a job because of my tattoos!

They’re too lazy to get a job! They all want to be famous! Those are just some of the generalisations when it comes to the work ethic of today’s youth. But that couldn’t be more different for 21 year-old Joe Parsons who contacted us here at This Morning after being repeatedly turned down for 20 jobs in just four months, because, he says, of his numerous tattoos.

Rebecca Jane, who runs a private investigation company says she wouldn’t hire anyone with a visible tattoo. Can Joe convince her that appearance should have nothing to do with a person’s capability to do a job?

Hero dad calls out friends for not inviting his son, who has autism, to parties

It's a problem many parents of autistic children sadly have to face - their children being ostracised for simply being different to other children.

Today we meet parents Shane and Christine Stephenson who have encountered this first hand. Dad Shane posted a heart-wrenching message to his friends online blasting them for their children failing to invite their autistic six-year-old son Reilly to their birthday parties, simply because he is autistic. Wife Christine then shared the hard-hitting post on Twitter and it's gone viral, with many other parents getting in touch and sharing similar stories.

Parents Christine and Shane join us to talk about the prejudices little Reilly has faced throughout his life, and tell us why we must change our attitudes to autism.


My sister was killed by a 90-year-old driver

Philip Bull didn't just kill those two people that day, he killed two families

– Debbie’s devastated sister Julie

On 7 March, Debbie Clifton and her partner Clare Haslam were attending a routine hospital appointment when tragedy struck. They were knocked down and killed by 90-year-old driver Philip Bull, who reversed his car into them after mistaking the accelerator for the brake pedal.

After admitting two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, Mr. Bull was yesterday handed a two-year suspended sentence after the judge said an 'immediate sentence of imprisonment would not put right the harm that had been done.'

Joining us today is Debbie’s devastated sister Julie, alongside John Michaels - who was seriously injured by an elderly driver in August last year, to tell us why they both intend to campaign for elderly drivers to be forced to retake their tests.
