Vince Cable is quoted in his local paper as saying he will back a rise in student tuition fees - is it a U-turn? Stephen and guests debate.

There's breaking news as a senior FA official attacks FIFA, saying football's governing body can't be trusted. The BBC's David Bond tells us in the first hour it's a significant development, and later in the show we're joined by the Shadow Culture Secretary Ivan Lewis.

A little girl in Sheffield is in despair after snow scuppered her birthday party - but pop star Pixie Lott saves the day!

Also, we're live in Madrid where an air traffic controllers' strike has stranded many Britons, and then it's off to Adelaide for an early wicket at the Ashes.

And in the final half-hour, an MP who has claimed more than £17,000 in expenses in just four months tells Stephen he's nothing to hide. Andrew Bingham, the new Conservative MP for High Peak in Derbyshire, says it's down to a quirk in the way he has paid for his staff.
