Alison Lapper and The Great British Bake Off's Martha Collison

Aasmah Mir and Richard Coles are joined by the artist Alison Lapper and Martha Collison from the Great British Bake Off. West End star Ruthie Henshall picks her Inheritance Tracks.

Alison Lapper joins Aasmah Mir and Richard Coles. For two years a 12 foot statue of her naked and pregnant body was on display in Trafalgar Square in London and since 2000 - the year her son was born - she has been followed by the BBC TV series 'Child of Our Time'. Despite being born with no arms she is a professional artist.

Martha Collison, the Great British Bake Off's youngest ever contestant, takes a break from her A Levels to tell us about her eight weeks on the show and what the future may hold.

James Goodfellow explains what it's like to have invented something used by millions of people a day - the cash machine.

And ahead of the release of a new film about Northern Soul we explore its resurgence amongst fans young and old.

Plus the West End and Broadway star Ruthie Henshall selects her inheritance tracks.

And JP Devlin visits the man who claims to have Britain's biggest collection of Barbie dolls - Giovani Madonia.
