1 hour, 55 minutes
First broadcast:

Simon and the team were joined in the studio by singing sensation, Ronan Keating, who gave us the lowdown on his new album...and mentoring singers too young to remember Boyzone!

We learnt more about the Canadian town of Medicine Hat, with Communications Officer Brandy Calvert and our Confession today was called Wibbling Rivalry.

Plus, Caroline Barker spoke to two young drag races about the careers that lay ahead of them and Pauline McCole looked into the current state of the property and lending markets.
