A happy couple

In this edition of Entertainment we hear from Dr. Glenn Wilson who has written a new book called 'The Science of Love'.

Dr. Wilson was interviewed by Chris Evans on BBC Radio and talks about why we find some people attractive and others not and we learn that a lot of attraction is based on features we have little or no control over.
