Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Hangover Patch: Licence To Booze?
First up: Is a new vitamin patch that promises to make hangovers a thing of the past for little more than couple of quid, well is that a genius invention or the very worst news for boozed up Brits? Think about it: if you could drink till you black out and wake up the next day with no headache, no urge to vomit. What would stop you from getting bladdered?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Make Gender Swap Kids Wait Til 18
Moving on: After a 17-year-old sex swap patient had a last minute change of heart and decided he didn’t want to become a girl after all, we’re asking if youngsters should be barred from even setting down that route until they’re fully fledged adults?
Should schools who allow pupils with gender dysmorphia to dress as the opposite sex have a rethink lest they stand accused of further confusing troubled teenage minds?

Part 6: Topless Blokes On Kids’ Tv
After that we’re going to hear if any of you have reservations about the growing number of topless blokes parading on kids TV? Merlin, Deadly 60, Horrible Histories have all featured bare chested men and some on the team worry what these images will do to the young minds trying to take it all in? Will little girls see men as sex objects? Will little boys feel horrible inferior?

Part 7: Do Charity Direct Debits Take Into Debt?
And finally: More than 3m people have set up direct debits for charity and statistically speaking a third of them will go overdrawn every month - something that cost you nigh no £700 quid a year which is more than most of us donate in the first place. So I’m wondering if charity direct debits should be the first things to go when you’re trying to save cash?
