The programme meets the pensioner whose age-gap marriage landed her in hospital and her young husband in jail. And a former anorexic reveals how powerlifting has changed her life.

We meet Sussex pensioner Norma Harvey whose age-gap marriage ended with her in hospital, and her much younger husband behind bars for attacking her - and hear from the campaigners who say elder abuse is on the rise and tougher sentences are needed. We’re in the van with the Red Box Project, delivering free sanitary products to schools so that no girls need miss out on their education just because they can’t afford to buy them. And we hear from former anorexic Emily Troskienko as she reveals the surprising health benefits of powerlifting and how it has transformed her life and her attitude towards her body.
