The Manxman now holds the lead over Nizzolo in the event,

:00:00.:00:00.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing

:00:07.:00:28.

us tomorrow. With me are the deputy editor of the express. The Metro

:00:29.:00:37.

leads with the comedienne Victoria Wood, who has died at 62. The

:00:38.:00:43.

express said she had kept her battle with cancer choir. Goodbye to the

:00:44.:00:50.

woman who made women laugh was the headline of the New Day. The

:00:51.:01:03.

Guardian features President Obama's trip to the UK. He is expected to

:01:04.:01:08.

make the case for the UK to stay in the EU. The FT FrontPage, EU

:01:09.:01:13.

regulators have charged Google with abusing the dominant position of its

:01:14.:01:19.

android operating system. The i focuses on the West macro's effort

:01:20.:01:26.

to fight Isis in Libya. And the Times says millions of patients will

:01:27.:01:32.

be seen by pharmacists and medical assistance instead of overworked

:01:33.:01:38.

GPs. Let's begin, and Victoria Wood makes so many of the front pages

:01:39.:01:46.

today. The Express, Victoria Wood dies suddenly at 62. She had a short

:01:47.:01:54.

battle with cancer. There was audible shock in the newsroom when

:01:55.:01:59.

we heard the news. On the front page of the New Day, the woman who made

:02:00.:02:10.

us laugh. One of her main talent was that she could see the humour in the

:02:11.:02:16.

seemingly mundane, everybody's ordinary lives, and make it

:02:17.:02:20.

humorous. The vast majority of people saw the humour in it and that

:02:21.:02:23.

is why the country loved her so much. What was so special about her?

:02:24.:02:31.

I am not sure I like the headline in New Day, the woman who made women

:02:32.:02:43.

laugh. It says here, not bleakly, not meekly, beat me on the bottom

:02:44.:02:56.

with a Woman's Weekly. She was a performer, comedienne, writer,

:02:57.:03:01.

composer, hugely talented, from very humble background. In her childhood,

:03:02.:03:08.

she was on Desert Island Discs, and she described quite a difficult

:03:09.:03:15.

childhood, she went to grammar school, was not privately educated,

:03:16.:03:18.

she didn't come from privilege and she fought her way up. I think that

:03:19.:03:22.

talent just shone through, she was an astonishing woman. The subjects

:03:23.:03:29.

of a lot of things she did, like Pat and Margaret and Dinnerladies, it

:03:30.:03:39.

was people doing ordinary things. Sometimes things didn't work out but

:03:40.:03:43.

there was humour in those situations. That is why she was

:03:44.:03:48.

incredibly popular. The good thing is, people have been going on you

:03:49.:03:54.

Tube all day and listening to that song, she has the legacy of that

:03:55.:03:57.

great amount of work that we can look back on. We have had the

:03:58.:04:02.

shocking death of some big names this year, but some of those people

:04:03.:04:08.

who were of an age where you would expect... 70s, 80s, but she was very

:04:09.:04:15.

young, 62, so it was a big shock. I hadn't quick look at her biography

:04:16.:04:21.

on Amazon and it has already sold out. Sad news makes the front pages

:04:22.:04:28.

of several pages but the Telegraph has a different picture, to

:04:29.:04:32.

celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday, which is tomorrow. Louise, a very

:04:33.:04:39.

eye-catching picture of the Queen with two of her grandchildren and

:04:40.:04:43.

five great-grandchildren. What I quite like about it is that although

:04:44.:04:47.

it is the Royal family and they are completely different to any other

:04:48.:04:52.

family, actually it is what any granny once. When I think of my mum,

:04:53.:04:57.

she loves being surrounded her grandchildren, and when I think of

:04:58.:05:04.

my Nan, it made her the happiest... I don't know whether it is passing

:05:05.:05:08.

on your genes to the next generation, I don't know what it is,

:05:09.:05:15.

but they are extraordinary. I didn't know you were a monarchist. I am

:05:16.:05:21.

not, I am a Republican, but there will be all of those grannies out

:05:22.:05:25.

there who are so proud of their grandchildren. It is like a fairly

:05:26.:05:37.

ordinary grandmother, like say. You might say some of the clothes the

:05:38.:05:46.

children are wearing a not typical. Prince George has his own particular

:05:47.:05:52.

wardrobe, Helix like Prussian prince from the 1800. -- he looks like. All

:05:53.:05:57.

of the Americans will be dressing their kids like that. The Telegraph

:05:58.:06:02.

is promising reports and pictures on pages four to nine tomorrow. The

:06:03.:06:17.

Express has a free TTL, I see. The Telegraph, one in three

:06:18.:06:25.

terrorists. This is part of the Telegraph's campaign to highlight

:06:26.:06:31.

weakness in border security. One in three jihadi terrorists convicted of

:06:32.:06:36.

rotting attacks was able to slip into the UK after training abroad,

:06:37.:06:39.

this was analysis of... They are highlighting

:06:40.:06:59.

the fact that unlike in America Britain doesn't routinely screen

:07:00.:07:08.

suspicious travellers. We have these hugely exploited migrant routes

:07:09.:07:12.

where hundreds of thousands of migrants want to get away from Syria

:07:13.:07:16.

and Libya, but at the same time security sources are saying these

:07:17.:07:21.

brutes have been exploited by Isis, whatever we call them, so they are

:07:22.:07:28.

highlighting them and they want the governor to beef up security. Louise

:07:29.:07:33.

was saying before we come on it very much chimes with the Brexit argument

:07:34.:07:39.

that if we get out of the EU on June 20 third -- the 23rd, we will be

:07:40.:07:46.

able to beef up our security. Louise, you think this is playing

:07:47.:07:54.

into the EU referendum debate? I think this is a subtle way of saying

:07:55.:08:00.

to Telegraph readers that we can stop this if we leave the EU. It is

:08:01.:08:05.

not like if you rock up to an Afghan training camp they put a stamp in

:08:06.:08:10.

your passport. There are 60 million people in the country and it is hard

:08:11.:08:15.

to see where they all go for their holidays. Apart from entering the

:08:16.:08:21.

United States, who have a very strong border control... Sorry, I

:08:22.:08:27.

just touched your knee there. These people don't want to be detected so

:08:28.:08:31.

they make it difficult themselves. The border security agencies are

:08:32.:08:36.

massively overstretched and we see stories every day about people being

:08:37.:08:41.

arrested, so they are doing a lot of work but if we have stricter border

:08:42.:08:47.

security we can maybe... We are kind of outsourcing our border security

:08:48.:08:51.

to the EU and it has clearly failed in some circumstances. Moving on to

:08:52.:08:57.

the i, the West macro to fight Isis in Syria. Really? There is a meeting

:08:58.:09:08.

of the G five on Monday in Hanover, America, Germany and France will be

:09:09.:09:13.

there. It is about how to tackle jihadis, and we have all of these

:09:14.:09:17.

problems in these migrant routes which can be exploited. Further down

:09:18.:09:21.

the line, if it is found that people have managed to exploit these

:09:22.:09:26.

routes, come up through Libya and then there is a terror attack in

:09:27.:09:29.

Europe, we will look at these leaders and say, why wasn't anything

:09:30.:09:34.

done about Libya? This is part of the reason why they are trying to

:09:35.:09:38.

get their heads together on Monday on what they can do, because Isis

:09:39.:09:41.

seems to have control of a lot of the coastline in Libya and we need

:09:42.:09:45.

to stamp on this before it gets worse. Louise, I just want to get

:09:46.:09:53.

onto the Times. Crack down on offshore owners of UK property, this

:09:54.:10:00.

is after the Panama Papers. There is an anti-corruption Summit in London

:10:01.:10:07.

next month. This is Erik pickles' job, he became the anti-corruption

:10:08.:10:14.

czar. Owners of offshore companies that hold an astonishing ?170

:10:15.:10:22.

billion of UK property via these offshore companies, they are going

:10:23.:10:25.

to have a crackdown. They want to find out who owns the companies,

:10:26.:10:30.

essentially by holding it through an offshore company... If you buy it

:10:31.:10:37.

through an offshore company, who knows who has bought at? We have

:10:38.:10:41.

found out that some pretty dirty people have bought property in

:10:42.:10:45.

London and the proper -- the problem is that the property industry have

:10:46.:10:49.

kept quiet about it because they have made a lot of money by selling

:10:50.:10:59.

to highly dodgy people in offshore companies. They have kept very

:11:00.:11:02.

quiet, delighted that this is continuing, but not only should

:11:03.:11:08.

London not be a centre for people to pile their dirty cash but also one

:11:09.:11:12.

wonders how long it has taken the government to do this. There have

:11:13.:11:18.

been plenty of warning signs and people living in London paying their

:11:19.:11:22.

taxes and contributing to the economy can't afford to buy a home.

:11:23.:11:28.

They should have cracked down on it a long time ago. In the details it

:11:29.:11:35.

says there is discussion about whether this should apply to

:11:36.:11:38.

existing offshore companies or new ones. They should have done this

:11:39.:11:45.

years ago. Brussels is going to charge Google with abusing dominance

:11:46.:11:56.

of android. -- Android. Something like 80% of smartphones have Android

:11:57.:12:05.

operating systems. If you put a pre-installed Google search on the

:12:06.:12:10.

phone, they have been saying on Google, we will give you better

:12:11.:12:15.

terms. Essentially there is a claim that Google have used their

:12:16.:12:21.

dominance in search, with Android, to put themselves in a better

:12:22.:12:29.

commercial position. Michael, it is interesting, the FT picks up that

:12:30.:12:34.

there are fears in America that EU is targeting US tech companies. We

:12:35.:12:40.

have all these tech companies, we have had tax avoidance and it makes

:12:41.:12:44.

people very upset over here, and you wonder whether they are doing it

:12:45.:12:51.

simply to make it look like they are doing something about it. The fine

:12:52.:12:57.

could be 10% of Google's core revenue, which is 10% of ?75

:12:58.:13:01.

billion. It is a lot of money but they can afford that. I was looking

:13:02.:13:07.

at some reported accounts, because that is the kind of thing I do...

:13:08.:13:15.

Your hobby. It may have been Google or another big American tax giants,

:13:16.:13:21.

40% of their revenue goes into Ireland. Ireland is not that big a

:13:22.:13:29.

company. -- country. Lots of sauce, no dressing, they are going to take

:13:30.:13:35.

us into the first naked restaurant. It is late, does that appeal? Not

:13:36.:13:43.

particularly. After a big meal you wouldn't have to loosen your belt. I

:13:44.:13:47.

wouldn't like to do the cleaning job afterwards. I am delighted it is the

:13:48.:13:55.

front page and not page 17, because that is where you will find it in

:13:56.:14:02.

the i tomorrow. I will leave everybody with that enduring image.

:14:03.:14:07.

Before you go, these front pages have also come in, all leading with

:14:08.:14:13.

the Queen's 90th birthday and Victoria Wood's death. The Mirror

:14:14.:14:20.

describes Victoria Wood as a gentle genius of comedy and the Daily Mail

:14:21.:14:24.

has the portrait of the Queen with her grandchildren and

:14:25.:14:27.

great-grandchildren, calling her the Queen of style. All of the front

:14:28.:14:32.

pages are online on the BBC News website where you can read a

:14:33.:14:39.

detailed review of The Papers. And you can see us there is well with

:14:40.:14:46.

each night's edition of The Papers being posted up there shortly after

:14:47.:14:54.

we have finished. Thank you, Louise and Michael. From all of us, good

:14:55.:14:55.
