Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: C-Sections For All: Waste Of Nhs Cash!
For our first phone-in: are health service bosses out of their minds offering every mum-to-be the right to give birth by caesarean: the op is expensive, risky and lays you out for weeks. At present only about one in four women deliver by C section - so why change things? Could it be the cash-strapped health service is pandering to those women who worry giving birth naturally might hurt a bit?

We’ll hear what you and the panel have to say about that before Steve-O gives us the heads up on the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Booze: Do Our Kids Really Have A Problem?
Then: Do our kids really have a drink problem? A new study by an education think tank suggests as many as one in four 14 and 15-year-olds get drunk every week; four percent of 12- and 13-year-olds consume 28 units of alcohol a week, that’s more than an adult male should consume. Overall young people are drinking twice as much as they did 10 years ago. Why? Or maybe you don’t believe the stats?

Part 6: Risk Addicts
Following on nicely, I want to hear your thoughts on risk addicts, those who get their thrills dancing with danger. Bungee-jumping rugby stars, women who sleep around, even junkies sticking needles in their veins, are they all ultimately doing the same thing? What makes us so attracted to danger? Can’t wait to hear from Steve-O on that.

Part 7: Did Jimmy Fix It For You?
And finally: Did Jimmy fix it for you? If you wrote a letter to Sir Jimmy Savile who died on Saturday asking him to fix something up for you, we’d love to hear about it. What did you ask the great man? Did he fix it for you? Here’s Kirsty with the numbers.
