Friday 28th Oct

So, Tom, Lynsey & Jack are back from their hols on Monday. Speaking of the trio, and as it's Halloween this weekend, we thought we'd give you another chance to see Tom and Lyns get the fright of their lives...

Good Deeds

On yesterday’s show Lynsey shared a news story with us that doing good deeds for other people can make you live longer! Apparently the lovely feeling you get from helping others can help to ward off all kinds of stress related illnesses. Lyns decided this called for a little challenge so the three of them went off after the show to perform a good deed…have a look at the videos and make your choice.

Back To School


So the summer holidays are pretty much done and dusted for this year…the kids are back to school this week!

Silly Jack. He thinks that in the song ‘Independent Woman’ by Destiny’s Child the chorus goes ‘All the women who are independent…throw your hands up BATMAN’. Duh! Lynsey was quick to tell him that the actual lyrics are ‘throw your hands up AT ME’ but still it seemed he opened up a right old can of worms
