Portugal is getting a bailout from the European Union. Mickey Clark explains the detail behind the move. But should we be helping Portugal at all? No, says Tory MEP Michael Callanan; Yes says Vicky Pryce, a former government economic advisor. Hear the debate at the start of the final hour.

Underage teenagers are to be banned from using sunbeds. Former tanning fan Mandi Welsh tells us in hour two how she had a two inch square piece of skin removed from her face after being diagnosed with malignant melanoma. It will be four years before she can get the all clear.

It's a big sporting weekend - we speak to Rory McIlroy's coach Michael Bannon, as McIlroy leads at the US Masters golf. And it's the Grand National too - our guest is Daryl Jacob, the jockey riding Alex Ferguson's horse at Aintree.

Plus, as it's Ladies Day at Aintree, we talk about some of the astonishing outfits on show with fashion designer Justine Mills, owner of the popular Cricket designer boutique in Liverpool, and Gill Harbord, etiquette expert and the headmistress on the TV show Ladette to Lady. What's appropriate to wear - and how much should women at Aintree let their hair down?
