At 10, Nihal's asking, have you lost faith in the NHS? The father of a baby who died after a hospital blunder has told the Asian Network he's lost faith in the NHS. Kamaljeet Singh's son, Maninder, was starved of oxygen, when midwives failed to realise he had been born under bedsheets. Earlier in the year he received an apology from St Mary's Hospital in Manchester and was awarded a five figure sum in compensation. The hospital has also implemented a number of changes since.

But how do you feel when you hear stories like this?

After 11, Nihal will be joined by Ali Imdad, the latest contestant to be eliminated from The Great British Bake Off. Who does the baking in your house? And do women now find men that cook more desirable?

Later in the show, new research has suggested that the number of Asian children with food allergies is increasing - and it could be down to food in their Indian diet. Is the typical South Asian diet bad for our children's health? And are dishes like curries causing them to suffer from things like eczema and rashes?
