Hello and welcome to our look ahead
to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow.
With me are journalist
and Penny Smith, who is
a journalist and broadcaster.
Nice to have you both here.
Many of tomorrow's front
pages are already in.
At this time of the night, you would
hope so, hey?
While the Beast from the East
subsides and the snow melts,
The Observer takes stock
of the financial cost the wintry
weather has taken on the country,
suggesting it's cost us one billion
pounds per day.
The Sunday Times leads
on an investigation in to how
internet giants may be
implicated in the trafficking
of vulnerable women.
The paper also looks ahead
to tomorrow night's Oscars
with a picture of Gary Oldman,
who has the Best Actor nod
for playing the part
of Winston Churchill.
The actor also takes centrestage
on the front of The Telegraph,
alongside the paper's top story
which looks at the way BBC
presenters' salaries are taxed.
The top story for the Mail
is the latest gossip
from within Theresa May's cabinet.
So, no clear consensus on a top
story for the Sunday papers,
but a couple are looking ahead
to tomorrow night's Oscars ceremony.
Let's start with the Observer,
adding up how much this it freeze
has cost us, apparently £1 billion a
day as fears mounted GDP growth.

think about all of those people who
have not been able to heat their
homes, who will be, no money cases
have gone up, so it is a huge thing.
Well, that'll comes into costs
because if you have no money
obviously you cannot work and you
cannot be productive but they are
saying construction could lose up to
£2 billion over the three worst days
because of course nobody could do
any work. And there may have
