Matthew

Sorry, this episode is not currently available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

Part 1: Hellos and Menu

Part 2 & 3: Tee’d off by Open’s birdie ban?
First we’re gonna find out if any of you are tee’d off by the Open’s birdie ban: why has Britain's most prestigious golf tournament been award to a club that refuses to accept women members, won’t give them a vote and will only accept the fairer sex as paying visitors, charging them six times more than male members. Can you imagine if the Royal St George's treated black people as they do women? There’d be outrage! So does the game of golf need to pull its Pringle socks up?

We’ll hear what you have to say about that, before it’s over Dan for the rest of the headlines.

Part 4: Today’s papers

Part 5: Obesity: Can you be addicted to food? After that: we’re looking at a scientific report that says the root of obesity lies in an addiction to food. But how can you be addicted to something you’d die without? It’s not like booze or drugs or gambling - all of which we could happily live without. You’d die without food - but could certain foods trigger an addictive-type response in our brains? What kind of foods might do that I wonder?

Part 6: Too old to train?
Our final phone-in of the week asks if you can ever be too old to train? Do any of you find photos of 80-year-old Rupert Murdoch in his sweat pants upsetting? Or am I dimwit to think you should be taking it easy when you’re that old?

Part 7: Talking telly with Mike Ward
And finally: I’m gonna be talking telly with Daily Star critic Mike Ward. What have you got for us?

    Just wont to say Rupert Murdock is a great man, why is everyone trying to run him down if we had some more like him it would solve the unemployment in this country and all over the world. the select committee are all bums trying to catch him out with questions they have thought about for days what do they know about corporate biussnes what annoys me about these politicians is they argue amongst themselves all there lives and whether they are right or wrong they still get paid. they are the leaders in this hyproquite world

    Matthew will always listen to other people's opinions and often changes his own opinion, when he hears someone make a relevant point. Its refreshing for a tv presenter to speak their mind!

    Have enjoyed the show while on holiday this week but very disappointed in the statements about Alistair Campbell by guest Neil. Seemed to be a personal tirade of horrible references to his mental health. No matter what you think of AC the comments were horrible. Also VERY annoyed with Matthew's comments about the "unsophisticated north"> Didn't think he subscribed to southern superiority.

    He's a great host if you agree with his views, therefore no point in discussion. He could also say I don't agree with you but respect you are entitled to your view, not just cut them off in an agressive manner. I havbe watched for a long time but he is getting worse so perhaps you're right time to stop watching.

    Matthew Wright and the panel were really annoying today particularly on the golf clubs topic. Women only clubs such as women only pubs and gyms are also sexist and unacceptable in 2011. When it comes to gyms they should either be mixed or why not have separate rooms. Also what about the Race For Life event and moonwalks. Why are they just for women? It is wrong to discriminate against men just as it is to discriminate against women.

    Matthew plays devil's advocate very well, if people don't like his style, I suggest they turn off. Personally I think he's fun, honest and does a great job.

    I agree with above comments Mathew really annoyed me today. He can be so rude and aggressive and dismissive of other peoples opinions. I must admit I prefer the show when he was away. He is far worse than Jeremy Vile as he cvalls him. He is not a suitable host for a discvussion programme and I'm fed up with hearing him say look forward to hearing your opinions he clearly doesn't)

    Food maybe an obsession but not an addiction

    Anne Diamond is talking rubbish. Seems like she's trying to excuse the fact she's had no self-control around food for much of her life. Despite what food nazis say, there is nothing addictive about any one particular food group, be it carbohydrate, fat or protein. Food is the first thing many people reach for when they are depressed, but to blame it on ready meals, chocolate or junk food is ridiculous, because if one is going to overeat, one will overeat whatever is in the cupboards. This is coming from someone with experience of "binge eating disorder".

    I have to say I enjoy the show However when Mathew seems to have got out of the wrong side of the bed or perhaps his back is hurting. He is so very agressive and bad mannered to some people if they do not agree with his point of view. Hanging up is so childish when he knows the person has no recourse of reply.

    hi, I have watched your show regularly for a long time and enjoy it alot, but sometimes Matthew you are far too one sided on a subject and don't really listen and respect other peoples opinions. You really got on my nerves listening to the ladies only golf discussion and you were far too opinionated and not at all open minded on the subject. Love from Jayne XXX
