PART 1: HELLOS & MENU

PARTS 2 & 3: OLYM-PANIC!
First up: Olym-panic! With two weeks to go to the start of the games, am I the only one who can sense panic in the air with fears over security, transport and even the weather. Are we going to pull this off? If you’re going to the games how smoothly do you expect your journey to go?

We’ll take plenty of your calls on that then it’s over to Jan for the rest of today's headlines.

PART 4: TODAY’S PAPERS

PART 5: ARE MEN FRIGHTENED BY STRONG WOMEN?
After that, and following Saira’s comments yesterday, I want to know if men really are frightened by strong women? Or could it be some of you girls blame men when you should be looking a little more closely at yourselves in the mirror - maybe what you see as strength men see as arrogance and selfishness? Maybe you strong women aren’t as attractive as you think?

PART 6: SHOULD A MAN WEAR A WEDDING RING?
Then: Should men wear wedding rings? David Cameron refuses - apparently he doesn’t like things on his hands. The tradition of male weddings rings maybe less than 100 years old but isn’t the symbolism of exchanging rings more important than a fella’s dislike of jewellery on his fingers?

PART 7: TALKING TELLY WITH MINNIE STEPHENSON
And finally we'll be talking telly with Five News’s showbiz reporter Minnie Stephenson. Welcome to the show - what have you got for us this morning Minnie? REVIEWS: SUPERSTAR, WALLANDER, BIG BROTHER, TONY ROBINSON’S LONDON GAMES UNEARTHED.

    Men thoug do one thing at a time while women have to do loads and become very intense as a result, so maybe women as a result are doing to much and therefore appear overbearing or controlling rather than seen as strong and supportive.

    Many women have become bitchy and cold in pursuit of top positions, although you could argue many men have become corrupt and greedy equally. But I think people can do buisness without the greedy and calice attitudes.

    Looking forward to the olympics but there is always pessimism, especially in britain but I feel crowded already on trains and buses and most of it isn't pleasant and I live/work in Birmingham, so London must be horrific! I can understand why many in London are not so unenthusiastic.

    I don't think most men like overbearing women, but there is a difference between being strong and being pushy and forceful. Women I think have had to be hard and calice to get a lot of top positions and in doing so have lost their compassion and femininity, which is a turnoff, also I personally would want my partner to be trong and resourceful but not push, go-getting or career driven as other things such as family, friendshipa nd enjoyment of life will suffer. But yes most men do club together where others who are more career and business minded become bitchy.

    Yes i think men should wear a ring as its a sign of committment and marriage status else people think your available. But obviously when it comes to swimming, exercise etc its impractical. Why would people not wear it as it reminds them of their love and relationship.
