BBC Three's interactive, live debate show, Free Speech, hosts a Body Beautiful Special from Newcastle. It's an opportunity for young people to discuss issues raised in BBC Three's Body Beautiful Season.

Jake Humphrey chairs the programme from the University of Northumbria, voted the country's top university for nightlife, where a panel of celebrities and experts take questions from the studio audience of 18-25 year-olds.

Olympic weightlifter Zoe Smith features on VT, revealing her feelings on the criticism she faced for not conforming to a standard body image; an exclusive poll, commissioned by the YMCA, is revealed and the Free Speech Power Bar shows what the audience at home think of the panellists.
