Zoe Ball sits in and celebrates World Book Day

Zoe Ball sits in for Chris, taking a literary approach to Thursday, as we celebrate World Book Day!

We find out what book-themed fancy dress outfits will be appearing at special events around the UK, while the actor, presenter and children's author Tony Robinson fills us in on the Biggest Book Show on Earth.

Broadcasting live from London's Queen Elizabeth Hall - and to an online audience of over half a million children - Tony is speaking to best-selling authors and illustrators including Francesca Simon, Lauren Child and Anthony Horowitz.

This morning's musical selection includes another Disco Ball Classic, some Petula Clark to celebrate this weekend's Mother's Day and, in response to some Eurovision rumours, we enjoy some Bonnie Tyler!
