• Which disabled people can legitimately use an accessible loo? Mat and Liz shoot the breeze off the back of the news that footballer Wayne Rooney reportedly used a toilet set aside for disabled people at the Glastonbury Festival in June.

Bev Burkitt and Jasmine Wakefield-Burkitt

• The stars of BBC Three's encore fly-on-the-wall documentary series Small Teen, Bigger World join us to talk about the filming, how they got spotted and why they're anxious when they see fellow short people dressing up as goblins and gnomes.

• Catch their series Monday nights at 9 pm, part of BBC Three's Extraordinary Me season. In four parts, starting July 11.

• The original show Small Teen, Big World aired last summer and became the channel's most watched programme ever, a record which was only toppled in the past couple of months.

Coming soon: The next show comes out around July 25 and features comedian-activist Laurence Clark. He'll be here to talk about his Edinburgh Fringe show where he visits America to explore what could happen to the NHS if it is made competitive.

    Hi, may I say that Small Teen, Bigger World has been a fantastic series, production was great and most of all it has been so positive and heart warming to see such a wonderful family that has such love, togetherness and humour that it makes me feel there is goodness in this world. You've made me cry, you've made me laugh and you've shown me that family is the most precious thing you can ever have. Thank you so much.

  • Comment number 2.

    How wonderful was the Small Teen, Bigger World series. It was probably one of the best I have ever seen. What a lovely, young girl. How mature and intelligent. Her mother and extended family were so caring and loving. Would love to see more of these lovely people. How about another programme meeting them in person.
