Harry Dunn's parents: Campaigning for justice

Nineteen-year-old Harry Dunn was tragically killed on 27th August when his motorbike collided with a car outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire.

The suspected driver of the car, Anne Sacoolas, the wife of a US diplomat - left the country and claimed ‘diplomatic immunity’, meaning that she may not face any criminal charges at all, despite reports suggesting she was driving on the wrong side of the road.

"We just want her to come back and face the justice and if that’s not behind bars then that’s fine"

Tim Dunn

Harry’s grief-stricken parents, Charlotte & Tim, join us this morning to call for justice and plead with the authorities to ensure Anne is returned to the UK to be held accountable for her alleged actions. We are also joined live from the US by our This Morning reporter Tamsin Eames who has been investigating in Anne’s hometown of Vienna, Virginia.

Britain Get Talking: Kem's secret anxiety struggle

"I've been at the bottom. I've been at rock bottom where life wasn't worth living anymore"

Kem Cetinay

On Saturday night during all the excitement of the final of Britain's Got Talent: The Champions, Ant and Dec took a break from proceedings to get us all talking. They told us to forget about the acts, the judges, and all other distractions, and instead take a few moments to talk to each other.

This is all part of ITV's new mental wellness campaign Britain Get Talking - which aims to tackle the rapid rise in cases of anxiety and depression among British children.

This message hits home for one member of our This Morning family. Kem says he had to hit rock bottom before he could recover from his debilitating anxiety.

He joins us this morning alongside his mum Figen to tell us about his lifelong struggle, and keep Britain talking.

Britain Get Talking is an ITV Mental Wellness campaign to help families get closer.

Are you ready to call time on cash?

Is it time to ditch cash? Our Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis says cash simply isn’t the safe way to spend – plastic means protection and people should urgently examine how they pay.

Thomas Cook’s collapse last month was tragic for staff and worrisome for customers. Yet while debit & credit card payers without ATOL or ABTA cover had some protections, I had to tell some: ‘If you paid by cash, cheque or BACS, sadly you’re UNLIKELY to get any money back.’ Cash just isn’t a safe way to pay.

Today she’s showing us the groundbreaking research and advances the campaign has achieved, as she takes us on a visit to The Royal Marsden Hospital.

She’ll also be joining us on the sofa alongside breast cancer survivor Lauren Mahon, as Elizabeth tells us about the very personal reason she became involved in the campaign.

'My husband was the first person to die from vaping in the UK'

When Terry Miller died in 2010, it was unclear if his 10-month vaping habit was to blame. But in recent months, e-cigarettes have come under increasing scrutiny after being linked to as many as 17 deaths in the US.

While a coroner returned an open verdict on Terry’s death, his widow Glynis Miller thinks vaping played a significant part in his demise. And she’s not alone: toxicologist Sven-Eric Jordt identified a cancer-causing chemical in e-cigarettes. He joins us from North Carolina, alongside Glynis and Dr Zoe in the studio.

'I can't watch Joker because I'm so scared of clowns!'

Millions of us are expected to head to cinemas this weekend for the release of new Batman spin-off Joker. But one person who won’t be rushing to buy a ticket is 22-year-old Elizabeth Mogg - who suffers from a decade-long fear of clowns.

As we send the Speakmans to help, will she finally be able to face her phobia?

Debate: Should smacking children be banned?

Yesterday afternoon, Scotland became the first country in the UK to make it a criminal offence for parents to smack their children. The Scottish Parliament voted by a margin of 84 to 29 to pass the bill - which prohibits parents from using ‘reasonable physical force’ when disciplining their children.

So as campaigners urge the UK government to follow suit in England, were MSPs right in their decision?

Joining us to discuss is journalist, Clare Muldoon - who says smacking has done ‘no harm’ to her own children. She’s here alongside broadcaster, Rebecca Wilcox, who supports the new legislation.
