With Jenni Murray. Michelle Gayle won fame as an actress and a singer and she's now published her first novel, aimed at teenagers. "Pride and Premiership: From Wags to Riches" is her attempt to take the gloss off being a WAG, she tells Jenni why. Lord Robert Winston has recently warned that freezing eggs as an insurance against future infertility is a giant con trick, Dr Gillian Lockwood thinks otherwise. They discuss the issues. It's 150 years since the American Civil War - so what part did women play and what impact did it have on their lives? And the best selling author Jodi Picoult talks about her latest novel "Sing You Home", which takes as its theme a same-sex relationship.
