A new BBC six part adaptation of Victor Hugo’s 19th century classic novel Les Miserables is about to hit our screen. Lily Collins star Fantine and joins Jenni to discuss the role of the young and desperate mother forced to leave her daughter and become a prostitute to earn money.

Cleaning, cooking and everything in between! The Miracle of Vinegar. Food writer Emma Marsden and Aggie Mackenzie – best known for How Clean is Your House - share hundreds of ways to use the low cost ingredient.

At the beginning of the year we heard from a range of young women who all turned 18 in 2018. They were in some cases young mothers, carers, campaigners - and they all wanted to make their mark on the world. So what has the past 12 months been like for Rachel, Jayde, Amika and Cerys.
