This January marks Lorraine Kelly’s 35th anniversary in broadcasting and viewing figures for Lorraine, her self-titled show on ITV, are at their highest in five years. Jane talks to Lorraine about the secret to her longevity, how her background has affected her views on equal pay and why she doesn’t put up with "diva" behaviour.
Emma Pickett, author of The Breast Book and a former deputy head teacher says that girls and boys aren’t being taught properly about breasts. She joins Jane along with Ruby Stevenson from Brook, the sexual health and well being charity for young people, to talk about how children are informed and to give advice for parents.
Campaigner and founder of VictimFocus Jessica Eaton explains why she thinks some frontline child protection workers don’t feel they’re being properly equipped to do their jobs.

New research shows that women are putting off smear tests – and particular concern is for the under-35s, who are apparently avoiding appointments due to embarrassment, or being too nervous to raise their concerns with nurses.

The Women's March, Film Classification, Jasmin Paris
Women are marching around the world this weekend. It's the third Women’s March. The first one was in 2017. The march's slogan has been ‘Women’s Rights are Human Rights’, but how has the message changed and evolved since it started? There are also reported divisions within the movement so how has that affected its reputation and impact?
Any film showing sexual violence will now get at least a 15 rating rather than a 12 or a 12A. This follows a survey of more than 10,000 people by The British Board of Film Classification. It was the highest area of concern for both young people and parents. We discuss the research with Lucy Brett, Head of Education at the BBFC and Dr Fiona Vera-Gray who is Assistant Prof of Sociology at Durham University plus a Trustee of End Violence Against Women.
Jasmin Paris is the first woman to win The Spine Race along the Pennine Way. It’s one of the world’s toughest endurance races. It’s gruelling and nearly 300 miles long. She broke the record by 12 hours AND expressed milk for her baby along the way. So how did she do it?
The shops are full of unicorns! So is fashion, and the mythical creature has even made it into regular political parlance. So where has the trend come from and why has it taken off in the way it has. Natural historian Natalie Lawrence and trend forecaster Geraldine Wharry join Jenni to discuss.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the most senior liberal justice on the US Supreme Court. She is also 85 and in the past two months has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She has become a popular cultural icon, affectionately nicknamed the 'Notorious RBG@. BBC correspondent Rajini Vaidyanathan and Dr Melissa Milewski discuss the woman who is seen to hold the balance of power on the Supreme Court. We hear the first in a new series about the burden of keeping the family secret. Wera Hobhouse MP and Gina Martin discuss the Voyeurism Bill that is set to become law and how it will tackle up-skirting. And with sales of high heels in decline, we consider the appeal of comfy shoes.
