Jane discusses the importance of fidelity in a long term relationship. Does an affair always mean the beginning of the end or can couples find a way to move on? What is it like to watch someone close to you compete in the Olympics? Jane talks to the mother and partner of two of the athletes in team GB to hear about the agony and the ecstasy. And following on from last week's discussion about women having plastic surgery on their labia, we ask what is 'normal' when it comes to female genitals?

Presenter: Jane Garvey
Producer: Ruth Watts.
