Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Are The Olympics Being Sold On Sex?
For our first phone I want to know if you think the summer Olympics are being sold on sex. We worry about the sexualisation of kids but then serve up countless images of their athletic heroes in the buff. What kind of message does that send out?

We’ll take plenty of your calls on that before Simon leads us through the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Euro Race Taunts: Should Players Walk?
After that: should players walk off the pitch if subjected to racial taunts at the Euros? If they go without the ref’s permission they’ll get yellow carded. But we reckon if players wait for the ref to order them off, which is what they’re supposed to do, they could be abused by the crowd for as long as 30 minutes before decisive action is taken. So what do you say?

Part 6: Brass And Class
For our final phone-in of the week, we’re discussing brass and class - if you’ve got it should you flaunt it and be flash with your cash? Are working class folk who make it rich more likely to be showy? That’s for you to say.

Part 7: Talking Telly With Kevin O’sullivan
And finally: we'll be talking telly with Sunday Mirror critic Kevin O’Sullivan.
