A Labour MP explains why he sent salacious text messages to a teenage girl. Plus, as the January weight loss season begins, five of the most famous fad diets.

The MP for Rochdale, Simon Danczuk, has told 5 live Daily that police haven't contacted him about a historic rape allegation. Lancashire police are investigating a claim which dates back to 2006. Mr Danczuk has been one of the most high-profile backbench MPs over the last couple of years - praised for his campaign against grooming in Rochdale. But now he's on the front pages for all the wrong reasons and suspended from the Labour Party after admitting sending sexual text messages to a 17 year old girl. Simon Danczuk spoke to Adrian Chiles on 5 live Daily - and explained how his online relationship with the teenage girl began.
