From break it off to shake it off, Alice Levine looks at the different emotions people go through after a break-up and the anthems they have inspired.

From break it off to shake it off, Alice Levine looks at the different emotions we go through after a breakup, and the anthems they've inspired. Katy B, Craig David, Nina Nesbitt and more join the Radio 1 family to talk about their experiences and share their break-up advice.

From the initial shock, right through to getting back out there and moving on with life, someone has written a song about it. Alice discovers why music can be so powerful in a breakup, how artists channel their failed romances into their music and even what it's like to be the star of a breakup song!
