Anton du Beke and financial expert Jasmine Birtles

It's the mid-point of this week's Big Shows and today Steve, Tim and Janey are joined by top dancer Anton Du Beke who discusses his recent spin around the dancefloor with Ann Widdecomb, while consumer champion and money expert Jasmine Birtles (rhymes with hurtles) looks at ways to combat the recent rise in VAT.

In this afternoon's fascinating Factoids, discover what Google was called before it was Google, how many people can sit down for dinner in China's Beijing Duck restaurant and how old the handkerchief is.

In the top Talkie bits, we learn how many smartphone users use their devices while on the toilet, and the team discuss the oldest Dad in the world, and how they inexplicably become wildly popular whenever Take That are on the show.

The Oldies today have been chosen by Lee Garrard from Scunthorpe who chooses some classics from Freddie Mercury, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Morrissey.
