PART 1: HELLOS & MENU

PARTS 2 & 3: LABOUR WIN BIG: TIME FOR ED TO GO?
First up: as Labour race to victory in yesterday’s council elections does anyone else share my view that this is the perfect time for leader Ed Miliband to go? A good win now is no guarantee of success in 2015 especially as opinion polls consistently show you don’t like Ed. So why not let him go out on top and leave the way clear for someone more appealing to lead Labour to the next general election?

What do you say? We’ll take your calls on that before it's over to Jordan for the rest of today's headlines.

PART 4: TODAY’S PAPERS

PART 5: CORRIE MALE DOMESTIC ABUSE PLOT - YOUR VERDICT
Before we hear what you think of last night’s Coronation Street male domestic abuse storyline - did you see copper Kirsty belt Tyrone across the gob with a ladle? Did producers get it right? And what about your personal reaction: would you have been more upset if Tyrone had hit Kirsty with the ladle instead? Yes? Is that proof we don’t take women hitting men seriously enough?

PART 6: ADELE: BIGGER THAN JACKO?
Then: Is Adele really bigger than Jacko? Her album 21, released last year, has just outsold Thriller to become our fifth biggest seller of all time. As much as I like Adele there’s no way songs like Rolling in the Deep are better than Beat It and Billy jean? Or are they?

PART 7: TALKING TELLY WITH KEVIN O'SULLIVAN
And finally we'll be talking telly with Sunday Mirror critic Kevin O'Sullivan. What have you got for us today Kevin?
REVIEWS: FOXES LIVE, WAR HERO IN THE FAMILY, LUCY WORSLEY: ANTIQUES UNCOVERED, WORLD’S SCARIEST FLIGHTS.

    I think Johnathon Wright makes himself look very arrogant making a sweeping statement about Sri Lanka, and then practically tricking Nihal into saying that war crimes were committed and then cutting him off like that. All with a smug smile on his face as he talks about "forty thousand people dead", which isn't very tasteful.

    Interesting to see that the panel think a woman hitting a man isn't as serious as a man hitting a woman. I do not understand why equality has exceptions.

    I totally disagree with matthew on the falklands. Firstly no native americans are recorded as being permanent settlers to the falklands and secondly 85% of argentina's population are white from europe with less than 15% actually being native south americans, the white argentinians have absolutelyno right on claiming the falklands on behalf of any native peoples as they themselves stole land, so actually I agree with Nihal that the people who live there are the only people that matter and what they want.
