Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Tom Daley Twitter Abuse
First up: a chance to hear what you make of the troll who mocked Tom Daley on Twitter using his late father as a club to beat him with. Newspapers are outraged - but surely anyone who chats with total strangers online should expect some nastiness because there are lots of spiteful people out there. And if you can’t handle it, quit Twitter and do something useful instead. Mind you, how would you react if someone said something like that to Tom in the street?

We’ll take plenty of calls before it’s over to Robin for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Working Till You Drop As Bad As Smoking?
After that: are mums-to-be who work until they drop - the baby that is - as bad as those who smoke thru pregnancy? A new study reckons they are - as their sprogs are likely to have a lower than average birth rate. So if you’re one of those supermums who grafted through your ninth month do you have any regrets?

Part 6: Olympic Losers = Best Role Models?
Moving on: are Olympic losers the best role models? Experts reckon winners make kids feel anxious and stressed when it comes to sport, losers inspire us as it’s not the triumph that matters, it’s the fact they take part. But by cheering the stragglers at the back, aren’t we celebrating mediocrity?

Part 7: Is David Cameron A Holiday Hypocrite?
And finally: is PM David Cameron a holiday hypocrite after lecturing us last week to vacation here at home - it’d be good for the economy he said - and yet yesterday we found he’s spend his two weeks abroad. Two faced or what?
