    This week, they call it Cinderella Surgery. No - not getting the handsome prince to simply recognise your face rather than make you try on a slipper - it's foot surgery, which people are starting to undertake for cosmetic reasons.

    This week, a You and Yours exclusive as we reveal the fake debt collection outfits set up by energy companies. The bills are real enough though. And we hear one woman's story about a company called ITRA. She paid £4,280 to remove herself from a company - who said she was always entitled to leave for free anyway. You can also hear how a self-made millionaire is using his cash to fulfil a boyhood dream. And we'll try to get to the heart of one of the mysteries of branding - how to be cool. Not that we worry about that sort of nonsense here on You and Yours. We'll settle for incredibly hip.

And the man who felt anything but free after "liberating" his pension. And there's a new generation of board games like Settlers of Catan, King of Tokyo and Pandemic. One cafe has put them on the menu - and trained its waiters to explain the rules. We have a slice of toast and roll of the dice at Thirsty Meeples.
