Hello it's Monday, it's 9 o'clock, I'm Victoria Derbyshire,

:00:07.:00:09.

This morning, children living with facial disfigurements tell us

:00:10.:00:15.

about the bullying they're subjected to.

:00:16.:00:20.

I wasn't pretty enough to be in their group, they didn't want to be

:00:21.:00:26.

friends with me because I was wet, I looked different and didn't match

:00:27.:00:31.

them. They left me and isolated me. -- I was weird.

:00:32.:00:36.

One child was told "I'd kill myself if I looked like you" -

:00:37.:00:39.

we'll get reaction and ask if schools should do

:00:40.:00:41.

more to educate children about facial disfigurements.

:00:42.:00:43.

Also on the programme, as seven football clubs are linked

:00:44.:00:46.

to allegations of historical child sex abuse, we ask mums and dads

:00:47.:00:49.

watching their children play football in one junior

:00:50.:00:51.

league their reaction to the revelations.

:00:52.:00:54.

Very sad to think that you leave your children with someone you

:00:55.:01:00.

trust, and they are taken advantage of. It's just dreadful, absolutely

:01:01.:01:05.

dreadful. Their childhood has been taken away.

:01:06.:01:12.

And - they're out, no more of this year's novelty acts

:01:13.:01:15.

When I say honey, you say G. When I say honey, you say G.

:01:16.:01:32.

Hello, welcome to the programme, we're live until 11 this morning.

:01:33.:01:54.

Throughout the programme, we'll bring you the latest breaking news

:01:55.:01:56.

And we're really keen to hear your views

:01:57.:02:01.

on all the stories we're talking about.

:02:02.:02:07.

After 10.30 we'll be discussing IVF -

:02:08.:02:11.

a new study suggests almost none of the costly "add on" treatments

:02:12.:02:14.

offered by fertility clinics to boost success rates are backed up

:02:15.:02:17.

by scientific evidence proving that they actually work.

:02:18.:02:22.

If you've used them, do get in touch to share your experiences -

:02:23.:02:25.

use the hashtag #victorialive and if you text, you will be charged

:02:26.:02:28.

Our top story this morning - another legal challenge over Brexit.

:02:29.:02:33.

Pro-EU campaigners are seeking support from judges

:02:34.:02:36.

for their argument that Britain has to take separate action to leave

:02:37.:02:41.

the European Economic Area, known as the EEA, which gives us

:02:42.:02:44.

access to the single market and allows the free movement

:02:45.:02:46.

They say the UK will not leave that automatically when it leaves

:02:47.:02:53.

the European Union, and it should be up to MPs to decide.

:02:54.:02:56.

But the government says membership of the EEA ends

:02:57.:02:59.

I really hope you are following this. If not, we have got Norman.

:03:00.:03:16.

Start from the beginning. It is complicated, but the topline is the

:03:17.:03:19.

country is facing a potential double legal whammy over Brexit. Ministers

:03:20.:03:24.

are already facing a challenge in the courts to trigger Article 50, to

:03:25.:03:31.

leave the EU. Now some legal eagles have come up with a second challenge

:03:32.:03:37.

about leaving the single market. What it all boils down to is we are

:03:38.:03:42.

members of the single market for two reasons. One, we are in the EU, but

:03:43.:03:48.

we also in this other thing, the European economic area. And the

:03:49.:03:52.

argument of the legal eagles is we may leave the EU but we will still

:03:53.:03:56.

be in the European economic area, so we will still be in the single

:03:57.:04:00.

market. So they are now watching a legal challenge to say, in effect,

:04:01.:04:05.

if we are going to leave single market, the EEA, it is going to have

:04:06.:04:09.

to be approved by parliament. Almost a mirror image copy over the

:04:10.:04:14.

challenge of Article 50. Why this matters is the danger of the

:04:15.:04:18.

government sinking into a legal quagmire, dragging on for months and

:04:19.:04:22.

months. And there is one other issue. If we stay in the single

:04:23.:04:27.

market, then we will have to allow free movement. In other words, it

:04:28.:04:33.

will put the kibosh on Mrs May's attempt to curb migration from the

:04:34.:04:38.

EU into Britain. So potentially this could matter big-time. Understood.

:04:39.:04:44.

The Polish Prime Minister is in town meeting Theresa May. What can we

:04:45.:04:49.

expect? It is symbolic, a big Fandango of a meeting, they have

:04:50.:04:54.

come over with a whole load of Cameron ministers, meeting our

:04:55.:04:57.

Cabinet Ministers and it is designed to send a message. The message is

:04:58.:05:02.

that we are still going to be friends with other countries. -- a

:05:03.:05:07.

whole load of Cabinet Ministers. So we can still have good relationships

:05:08.:05:12.

with other EU countries. There is a second part to it. We are going to

:05:13.:05:17.

agree to send some of our soldiers to the Polish border. A lot of

:05:18.:05:21.

people suspect we are giving them a nudge and a wink, saying, you know

:05:22.:05:25.

what, we're going to give you some troops, maybe you can cut us a deal

:05:26.:05:29.

when it comes to Brexit. There is a suspicion that that is what today's

:05:30.:05:32.

talks are about. Joanna Gosling is in the BBC

Dancing. He was a surprise star of the series, entertaining fans with

:10:34.:10:36.

memorable moves despite being bottom of the scoreboard. But this week,

the public vote failed to save him and his partner.

different. Susan: when you have anything different, someone will

always want to use it to hurt you. What satisfaction they get, who

:11:21.:11:24.

knows? Some people are ignorant and nasty. Still today people will sit

:11:25.:11:27.

there and make comments, even if they don't know you? Why? Marion: we

:11:28.:11:33.

are too preoccupied with looks and this needs stamping out. Good on you

:11:34.:11:37.

for highlighting it. The film is coming up in the next couple of

:11:38.:11:38.

minutes. Now some sport. Lewis Hamilton won

:11:39.:11:50.

the final Formula 1 race of the season but his team-mate Nico

:11:51.:11:54.

Rosberg won the Drivers' Championship, although team-mates, I

:11:55.:11:54.

use the word loosely! It has been a fascinating battle in

:11:55.:12:06.

the second half of the season. They drive for Mercedes but it has been a

:12:07.:12:09.

fractious friendship, if you can even call it friendship. The final

:12:10.:12:13.

race was in Abu Dhabi and Hamilton had to win the race and he needed

:12:14.:12:19.

Nico Rosberg to finish in fourth all over, so Hamilton on pole was

:12:20.:12:24.

deliberately driving slowly in an attempt to push Nico Rosberg into

:12:25.:12:28.

the other drivers behind him. Hamilton was repeatedly told by his

:12:29.:12:32.

team to speed up. He told them, let us race. It has been described as

:12:33.:12:39.

dirty tactics. It didn't quite work. Nico Rosberg, celebrating becoming

:12:40.:12:43.

world champion for the first time in his career. Something his father did

:12:44.:12:48.

in 1982. Hamilton is the one people were talking about. This is Rosberg

:12:49.:12:55.

celebrating by doing doughnuts. It certainly meant a dramatic final

:12:56.:13:00.

race of the season. Rosberg winning by five points in the end. Jose

:13:01.:13:06.

Mourinho is in trouble again. He's like a little boy, isn't he? You

:13:07.:13:11.

could say that. He was sent to the stands by the referee for the second

:13:12.:13:15.

time in two months, this time in the 1-1 draw against West Ham. He was

:13:16.:13:19.

annoyed by a yellow card given to Paul Pogba, as the referee felt that

:13:20.:13:25.

he dived. Kicking a water bottle. That got him sent to the stands by

:13:26.:13:30.

John Moss, the referee. He was also dismissed last month by a different

:13:31.:13:34.

referee and he was banned and find after the match against Burnley. The

:13:35.:13:40.

yellow card means Paul Pogba is suspended for the League Cup

:13:41.:13:44.

quarterfinal against West Ham, the team they were playing yesterday.

:13:45.:13:48.

Manchester United, 11 points behind the league leaders Chelsea.

:13:49.:13:54.

Frustration all round. Finally tennis, a moment of compassion in a

:13:55.:13:59.

hard-fought Davis Cup match. If you think Andy Murray is emotional,

:14:00.:14:04.

watch on Martin del Potro. Great Britain won the Davis Cup last year.

:14:05.:14:09.

This time it was Argentina against Croatia, and the Argentina fans are

:14:10.:14:14.

extraordinarily passionate. It was like being at a football match, del

:14:15.:14:18.

Potro in the Olympics. The fans are so noisy, they don't abide by the

:14:19.:14:22.

rules. Among the passion, Marin Cilic's serves, he hit a ball girl

:14:23.:14:29.

and del Potro stopped the match to make sure she was OK. This was an

:14:30.:14:34.

important match, the reverse singles, Argentina were 3-1 down by

:14:35.:14:41.

this point. She is crying. Del Potro asks for a replacement to be brought

:14:42.:14:45.

on. You can see the fans really enjoying the situation. She goes

:14:46.:14:51.

off, and actually del Potro goes on to win the match. Argentina went on

:14:52.:14:55.

to win the Davis Cup for the first time in their history, 3-2 against

:14:56.:14:59.

Croatia. The fans loved it and there was also a special Argentine there,

:15:00.:15:03.

Maradona enjoyed the occasion. He went a bit bonkers at some of the

:15:04.:15:08.

points. Argentina winning the Davis Cup. You can see him there.

:15:09.:15:14.

Argentina win the Davis Cup for the first time.

:15:15.:15:17.

"I'd kill myself if I had a face like yours."

:15:18.:15:22.

What one young boy with facial disfigurements was told.

:15:23.:15:24.

This morning we're going to be looking at the kind of abuse

:15:25.:15:27.

The UK's leading charity on facial abnormalities, Changing Faces,

:15:28.:15:35.

has told this programme face discrimination could even be worse

:15:36.:15:37.

than other forms, like racism, because very little is being done

:15:38.:15:40.

They want to roll out an education programme across schools nationally

:15:41.:15:44.

Our reporter Ashley John-Baptiste has been to meet children who've

:15:45.:15:51.

faced their own private struggles just because of their faces.

:15:52.:16:04.

The twin who doesn't look like the other.

:16:05.:16:09.

We can hear what people say and we can see that they are looking

:16:10.:16:12.

When I walk into town, I get stared at a lot.

:16:13.:16:22.

One guy said that I would be way hotter if I didn't have

:16:23.:16:35.

facial palsy and he would date me if I didn't.

:16:36.:16:37.

Different stories, but similar experiences.

:16:38.:16:38.

We are going to meet the children who are stared at, laughed at,

:16:39.:16:41.

We want to know how they and their families cope.

:16:42.:16:52.

It's like a grieving process, you haven't had the child that

:16:53.:16:54.

And we are testing whether the ground-breaking face pulling

:16:55.:17:03.

lessons are changing the way that children think.

:17:04.:17:05.

I want to see the world through the eyes of children that

:17:06.:17:18.

Billy's family have struggled to even take him out in public.

:17:19.:17:30.

At times it can be soul destroying, it really can because as a parent

:17:31.:17:33.

So you can see that his head is not a normal shape.

:17:34.:17:59.

He is a twin and he was born with a syndrome.

:18:00.:18:08.

All of this part here around his nose.

:18:09.:18:11.

The paediatric registrar didn't even refer to Billy as a baby,

:18:12.:18:19.

he just said, "I have never seen anything like it before".

:18:20.:18:24.

You have had kids who have seen Billy and have started crying.

:18:25.:18:35.

Not just crying, hysterically crying.

:18:36.:18:36.

Because they are scared of him and they think

:18:37.:18:39.

Billy is still really young, he is nine years old.

:18:40.:18:42.

Massively, because there is so much prejudice with

:18:43.:18:50.

He would just say, "Why is that boy staring at me or pointing at me?"

:18:51.:19:05.

You don't want to keep saying to him, well, your face

:19:06.:19:08.

is different, that is why they are looking at you all

:19:09.:19:11.

Marcus' disfigurement is just skin deep.

:19:12.:19:24.

He is 12 and he is a talented trampolinist.

:19:25.:19:26.

But he was born with a cleft, a gap in his face.

:19:27.:19:33.

In reception, I was the boy with a face.

:19:34.:19:43.

I was actually bullied because of the way that your face looks?

:19:44.:19:46.

Yes, some people have called me Scarface.

:19:47.:19:48.

One time, I was ten, someone came up to me and said,

:19:49.:19:51.

if they looks like me, they would kill themselves.

:19:52.:19:53.

After when I came home I just burst into tears.

:19:54.:19:56.

I thought right I think I need to go to school and sort it out.

:19:57.:20:02.

And he said, don't, you will just make things worse

:20:03.:20:05.

They don't listen, I tell the teachers and nothing changes,

:20:06.:20:08.

And I got in touch with Changing Faces.

:20:09.:20:11.

And they came to school, and spoke to the school about how

:20:12.:20:14.

The charity Changing Faces deals with face discrimination, set up

:20:15.:20:19.

Every single social interaction is problematic and so is what was

:20:20.:20:27.

going on here because my brain was saying people like you,

:20:28.:20:30.

people like you, looking like that, don't succeed.

:20:31.:20:34.

This kind of preconception about disfigurement happens

:20:35.:20:36.

Impressionable minds will pick up these things very quickly.

:20:37.:20:47.

This short survey is about the general public's

:20:48.:20:57.

We have asked a research company to come and test year fives,

:20:58.:21:01.

The children are being shown a series of faces and they have

:21:02.:21:09.

to match positive words like at the unsuccessful,

:21:10.:21:11.

or negative words like sad and I'm confident with the photos.

:21:12.:21:14.

Because it is your brain reaction, you can't cheat it.

:21:15.:21:19.

This is kind of an experiment for us.

:21:20.:21:21.

This test has never been used with children before

:21:22.:21:24.

and we are looking at how quickly people can associate positive words

:21:25.:21:26.

with images with people with facial disfigurement.

:21:27.:21:33.

Tests like this are used across the world to find out

:21:34.:21:36.

what we really think on subjects such as gender,

:21:37.:21:38.

People with facial disfigurements, are they as likely as being

:21:39.:21:45.

disfigured against as black people, women or gay people?

:21:46.:21:51.

I think that it is, as painful, but I don't think it is recognised.

:21:52.:21:57.

Virtually everyone who takes this is slower to be positive

:21:58.:22:00.

towards disfigured faces but the question is,

:22:01.:22:01.

Although you are slower at associating positive values

:22:02.:22:32.

of people with facial disfigurements is, you are only 11% slower.

:22:33.:22:34.

Adults in the UK that we have tested before at a score of 27%.

:22:35.:22:37.

The classes much more positive about facial disfigurement

:22:38.:22:39.

than the UK in general but the children are about to get

:22:40.:22:42.

We will test them tomorrow to see if there is a difference

:22:43.:22:46.

Looking different is tough for any kid, especially

:22:47.:22:53.

when you are a teenage girl and image is everything.

:22:54.:22:57.

I have come to Somerset, to talk to a young girl,

:22:58.:23:00.

that has a facial condition that means that she can't smile.

:23:01.:23:02.

Mainly that I was not pretty enough to be in their group and they did

:23:03.:23:18.

not want to be friends with me because I was weird or I looks

:23:19.:23:22.

not want to be friends with me because I was weird or I looked

:23:23.:23:26.

They just all left me and isolated me because of my face.

:23:27.:23:30.

Before the surgery with a smile, you can see happy little girl.

:23:31.:23:33.

Caitlin was only a little baby before she developed

:23:34.:23:35.

They took the whole tumour out and while doing that,

:23:36.:23:49.

they called the smiling nerve and as a result of that,

:23:50.:23:52.

So the whole side of her face dropped.

:23:53.:23:55.

I took are to have her photo taken with her brother

:23:56.:24:00.

and the photographer said, "Mum, what is she doing with her face?"

:24:01.:24:10.

And I was "what do you mean", and she said that silly face

:24:11.:24:13.

that she is pulling, and that is a photographer

:24:14.:24:15.

in a preschool and that is the first time that I broke down

:24:16.:24:18.

The preschool leader was trying to calm it all down

:24:19.:24:22.

and that is the point that I realise that nothing was going to be

:24:23.:24:25.

As a 14-year-old teenage girl, how important is image to you?

:24:26.:24:29.

I think very important, that is where everyone really

:24:30.:24:31.

On my Instagram comments, sometimes I get oh you are ugly,

:24:32.:24:35.

or you shouldn't be taking pictures like that.

:24:36.:24:45.

So I started taking pictures of half of my face instead of my whole face.

:24:46.:24:57.

The whole time, I put a lot of make up my eyes to distract people

:24:58.:25:03.

Seeing that children have two become resilient in the face of bullying.

:25:04.:25:07.

It still happens but I have my friends to help me.

:25:08.:25:10.

Did you ever see people poke fun at school?

:25:11.:25:12.

Yes, they were calling him Scarface but me and Connor, we back him up,

:25:13.:25:15.

Yes, because I acted normal, normal to everyone else.

:25:16.:25:21.

As soon as JJ said well he was the same as everybody else,

:25:22.:25:24.

When people point at Billy, what do you do?

:25:25.:25:40.

She's quite good with Billy because she defends him very well.

:25:41.:25:46.

But for Caitlin, primary school was hard.

:25:47.:25:48.

What did the school due to support you?

:25:49.:25:52.

They didn't feel like it was a big enough issue.

:25:53.:26:04.

If I found a magic lamp and I could have one wish,

:26:05.:26:09.

I wish that I would have a normal face and that no one

:26:10.:26:12.

I wish I could walk down the street without people seeing me,

:26:13.:26:16.

It is one of a few in the country teaching face equality.

:26:17.:26:24.

It started with the book Wonder, about a boy with a facial

:26:25.:26:26.

Compared with racism or homophobia or sexism, how important is it

:26:27.:26:30.

The school uses and lesson plans from Changing Faces.

:26:31.:26:41.

The charity wants to see it rolled out across the country.

:26:42.:26:46.

Why do you think so many schools are behind the trend in terms

:26:47.:26:59.

of supporting kids with facial disfigurement?

:27:00.:27:01.

It is the pressure they have got to get those academic results are,

:27:02.:27:04.

that is the biggest priority for most of the school.

:27:05.:27:06.

The children are also meeting markers and Caitlin.

:27:07.:27:15.

Well when I first went in there was a lot staring

:27:16.:27:17.

Was it kind of a bit more hard to make friends at school?

:27:18.:27:22.

It wasn't hard when I first started school but as I grew up and people

:27:23.:27:26.

grew up and we all started to realise I was a bit

:27:27.:27:29.

Just, it is not you with the problem.

:27:30.:27:43.

Once they started engaging with things that they had similar

:27:44.:28:03.

charities with such as Pokemon, those barriers just

:28:04.:28:05.

But has the lesson changed the views of the pupils?

:28:06.:28:10.

They are taking the same test that they did yesterday

:28:11.:28:12.

when they were 11% slower to match positive words

:28:13.:28:14.

It's a brain reaction tests your school will not improve practice.

:28:15.:28:24.

Basically we don't really notice the facial disfigurement,

:28:25.:28:31.

It would suggest that the education they had after yesterday's test

:28:32.:28:42.

That is a very plausible explanation.

:28:43.:28:49.

Really surprised. Meeting those children, we are all the same.

:28:50.:29:15.

It is part of the discrimination Act. You cannot discriminate against

:29:16.:29:19.

someone with a facial disfigurement. This year I did definitely gained

:29:20.:29:31.

a lot of confidence and realise that it is not Michaels

:29:32.:29:38.

and if they have a problem with it How would you like

:29:39.:29:41.

people to judge you? From my personality and what I do,

:29:42.:29:45.

not by my face. If you want to share that full film,

:29:46.:29:48.

you can find it again on our programme page:

Tony says, "This needs stampling out. Education is the only way."

:30:01.:30:06.

Jeanette says, "I was encouraged to return to work as a teach we are

:30:07.:30:13.

severe facial palsy. I became depressed and for months suicidal

:30:14.:30:20.

and I have PDST as a result." John says, "I had severe acne which left

:30:21.:30:26.

me with scars. Rarely do I escape verbal abuse on a daily basis."

:30:27.:30:36.

Heidi says, "Yes, schools should be making pupils aware of

:30:37.:30:40.

discrimination." Another viewer says, "Everyone is different.

:30:41.:30:43.

Whatever their background." Thank you. Keep them

:30:44.:30:47.

In the next Keep them hour of the programme,

:30:48.:30:49.

we'll be speaking more people who've been discriminated because of

:30:50.:30:51.

and looking at what can be done to stop this type of bullying.

:30:52.:30:56.

UKIP will announce its new leader later this morning.

:30:57.:31:01.

As Nigel Farage stands down for the third time, we'll be joined

Here's Joanna in the BBC Newsroom with a summary of today's news.

:31:17.:31:22.

Almost none of the so-called "add on" treatments offered by fertility

:31:23.:31:25.

clinics to boost IVF success rates are backed up by

:31:26.:31:27.

The study was commissioned by the BBC's Panorama programme,

:31:28.:31:34.

and is also published in the British Medical Journal.

:31:35.:31:38.

It found that only one of 27 different treatments was supported

:31:39.:31:41.

by moderate evidence that it could increase

:31:42.:31:43.

The fertility regulator said it has limited powers to stop

since his successor, Diane James, stepped down after less

:33:28.:33:29.

The three candidates are the former deputy leader Paul Nuttall,

:33:30.:33:33.

former deputy chairman Suzanne Evans and party activist John Rees-Evans.

:33:34.:33:38.

The announcement will be live on the BBC News channel at 11.45am.

terms that I am different and accept my impediments, other people do not

:35:09.:35:12.

announced later this morning. It means Nigel Farage's third spell

:35:13.:35:14.

as leader of the party I have never been

:35:15.:35:17.

and I have never wanted to be So I feel it is right that I now

:35:18.:35:29.

stand aside as the leader of Ukip. The leader of the UK

:35:30.:35:38.

Independence Party, Diane James! Watching TV this afternoon,

:35:39.:35:45.

you'll be watching the opposition I will continue as the interim

:35:46.:35:47.

leader of Ukip and we will go I keep trying to escape

:35:48.:35:59.

and going over the wall and running for the hills and before I'm finally

:36:00.:36:06.

free they track me back. The man tipped to be Ukip's next

:36:07.:36:14.

leader is in hospital after an altercation

:36:15.:36:17.

with a colleague in There were no punches thrown,

:36:18.:36:20.

no face slapping, nothing. As people would say,

:36:21.:36:33.

it was handbags at dawn. So, who do party members and voters

:36:34.:37:02.

want to take over as the next leader, and will they have the same

:37:03.:37:06.

attraction as Nigel Farage? Here with us, the Ukip MEP for the East

:37:07.:37:12.

of England, Tim Aker, and a group of Ukip voters. Thank you. Tim Aker,

:37:13.:37:16.

who do you want to be the new leader and what should their focus be? I

:37:17.:37:21.

support Paul Nuttall, I think he has the experience within the party. To

:37:22.:37:28.

see us into our next stage. We have won the referendum, we have to make

:37:29.:37:31.

sure Brexit means Brexit, but we have to win council seats and get

:37:32.:37:36.

more MPs next time. Labour is in disarray, they would rather talk

:37:37.:37:39.

about Castro than council housing, they are not talking about the

:37:40.:37:43.

issues of working-class voters. You are in a bit of disarray yourself?

:37:44.:37:48.

We have seen worse, we survived Kilroy. Some of our audience will

:37:49.:37:55.

not know who he is. A lot of people will. We have been winning

:37:56.:38:00.

by-elections. On the day of the altercation, we won a by-election in

:38:01.:38:05.

Hartlepool. With Paul hopefully as leader, we can march into labour

:38:06.:38:08.

areas and win council seats and be prepared for the next election. Tell

:38:09.:38:12.

us what you want from the next leader. I am Tricia Gulliver from

:38:13.:38:17.

Bromley, a member of the Bromley committee for Ukip. I want the next

:38:18.:38:24.

leader to unite the party, which is so very important. Is that through

:38:25.:38:29.

the charisma of their personality? Their policies? How would they do

:38:30.:38:34.

that? Strength of character and experience that they can bring. Go

:38:35.:38:45.

ahead. I am Matt, 24, and I joined the party in April 2000 15. I used

:38:46.:38:52.

to support Labour. Why did you switch in April 2015? They were not

:38:53.:38:58.

listening to working-class people struggling to make a living. Ukip

:38:59.:39:02.

were the only ones that work. Listening to us. -- that were

:39:03.:39:12.

listening to us. I live in Thurrock. We have had a Labour run council for

:39:13.:39:19.

a long time. Labour MPs, and now it's Conservative. I am now an

:39:20.:39:23.

activist for the party. What is the future for you? I support Paul

:39:24.:39:30.

Nuttall, I have done from the offset. The party has a great

:39:31.:39:35.

future. I have been knocking on doors since after May as well, when

:39:36.:39:41.

I stood. Knocking on doors, and our support base has been returning to

:39:42.:39:45.

us. I have been speaking to people that voted for us, saying, we're not

:39:46.:39:50.

going anywhere, we are not going to disappear. The party has a strong

:39:51.:39:53.

future, we have to keep knocking on the doors and asking important

:39:54.:39:58.

questions. What is it that people are asking you when you knock on the

:39:59.:40:03.

door? Anything. What can we do for you? We are public servants. We have

:40:04.:40:10.

to listen to the people. I was like that myself. You don't see a

:40:11.:40:13.

counsellor knocking on your door very often, only at election time,

:40:14.:40:18.

that is what is great about Ukip, out all the time, knocking on doors.

:40:19.:40:25.

I am Rebecca, from Ipswich, a Ukip voter pretty much ever since I could

:40:26.:40:29.

vote. I have always supported the party, I haven't been a member of

:40:30.:40:34.

it. My main issue has been the EU and getting out. I am incredibly

:40:35.:40:39.

happy with the result of the referendum. Ukip needs a strong

:40:40.:40:43.

leader to lead us forward and get us out of the EU, get Brexit sorted.

:40:44.:40:47.

Don't you trust Theresa made to do that? No. When she was Home

:40:48.:40:54.

Secretary, she couldn't manage the borders, so how can she manage

:40:55.:40:58.

Brexit? She said it is keeping her awake at night. There is a pamphlet

:40:59.:41:05.

on how to get us out in a week, repeal the 1972 European Communities

:41:06.:41:11.

Act, job done. She is not the reason a, she is Theresa maybe! -- she is

:41:12.:41:21.

not Theresa May. Do you not think it is slightly more complicated than

:41:22.:41:24.

you have made it sound? It is complicated because they want to

:41:25.:41:28.

make it complicated and draw it out. Frankly get on with it. For what

:41:29.:41:35.

purpose? To grind everyone down. But we are not going away.

:41:36.:41:43.

INAUDIBLE QUESTION. You think she is going to change

:41:44.:41:48.

completely? 17 million people said they wanted to leave... Yes, they

:41:49.:41:54.

did. Nigel Farage offered to help the government with the President of

:41:55.:41:58.

the US. He has the best relationship... Any incoming Prime

:41:59.:42:06.

Minister... He decided to put country before party. Their response

:42:07.:42:11.

was to laugh in the House of Commons. It seems they are willing

:42:12.:42:14.

to put party above country with this. I am Nick, a Ukip member since

:42:15.:42:25.

2002. That was when I realised Gordon Brown had trashed my pension.

:42:26.:42:29.

I started taking notice of what was going on in the world. Who do you

:42:30.:42:36.

want to lead Ukip? I voted for Paul Nuttall. On the basis of his

:42:37.:42:45.

experience. But what I have found, particularly with this referendum,

:42:46.:42:52.

both the people object into being in the EU and the people who wanted to

:42:53.:42:56.

stay in the EU, none of them had a very good idea of what the EU was

:42:57.:43:01.

all about. Quite a good example, a bit earlier in this programme, you

:43:02.:43:05.

had a chap talking about the single market. He only gave half the story.

:43:06.:43:12.

It isn't really a single market... We are not going to get into your

:43:13.:43:16.

definition of the single market, if you don't mind, we don't have time,

:43:17.:43:21.

let's hear from Josh. I have been a member of the party since 2015. Why

:43:22.:43:29.

do you support Ukip? I was half and half with the Conservative Party,

:43:30.:43:33.

but with David Cameron and Theresa May, true conservatives like

:43:34.:43:36.

Thatcher, they are very centrist, they just mumble a lot. They don't

:43:37.:43:42.

get the job done on the economy. We have had a Conservative government

:43:43.:43:46.

since 2010, and yet get in borrowing is up. Neither party has any clue

:43:47.:43:52.

how to sort out the economy, because national debt will be ?1.9 trillion

:43:53.:43:57.

by the end of the decade. Who do you support? Suzanne Evans. Have you

:43:58.:44:04.

heard her talk about reducing the deficit? She wants to focus on

:44:05.:44:11.

educating the young to do jobs so we don't have to rely on immigration.

:44:12.:44:15.

She wants a less intrusive state, cutting down on waste and NHS

:44:16.:44:20.

management, to get the deficit under control by not borrowing, like

:44:21.:44:22.

Labour would, to spend how they want. We need defence policies to

:44:23.:44:29.

make sure we stick to defence, because that is an area where we do

:44:30.:44:32.

need to spend money. She has a balanced idea of the role of

:44:33.:44:37.

government, so it is not just cutting and spending, which the

:44:38.:44:42.

other parties seem to be about. Just on point, talking about government

:44:43.:44:46.

finances, our manifesto at the last general election was the only one to

:44:47.:44:51.

be independently costed. Feted by independent experts. I understand.

:44:52.:45:00.

-- vetted. Norman Smith was talking about the government saying we will

:45:01.:45:06.

automatically come out of the European economic area when we leave

:45:07.:45:09.

the EU, but actually lawyers are saying there has to be a formal

:45:10.:45:13.

process, Parliament should be given the chance to trigger it as well. It

:45:14.:45:18.

seems to be watering down the whole process, doesn't it? Republic have

:45:19.:45:23.

spoken. Politicians are there, as Matt said... Tell me which

:45:24.:45:29.

politician is saying the public hasn't spoken? Which politician is

:45:30.:45:32.

saying we are going to ignore the public? In power... Owen Smith is

:45:33.:45:41.

not in power. Theresa May has a majority of, what, 12? There are

:45:42.:45:47.

enough hard-core remaineders to make this a messy process, just get on

:45:48.:45:52.

with it. Give us an early Christmas present, get up this week and say we

:45:53.:45:56.

are just going to do it. We are going to send the letter and start

:45:57.:46:02.

negotiations. Better still... Why does it matter, December or March?

:46:03.:46:08.

Because get on with it. The longer she leaves it, the more I have a

:46:09.:46:13.

point. They are trying for a second referendum. Clause 50 was put into

:46:14.:46:19.

the Lisbon Treaty not to allow people to leave, but to make it

:46:20.:46:23.

extremely difficult for people to leave without horrendous financial

the 1972 act. It was brought in by blatant lies by Ted Heath in

:46:34.:46:37.

Parliament to the country. Strictly speaking it shouldn't be legal.

Thank you very much for coming on. Your view is welcome.

:46:42.:46:46.

News from Fifa. It is to do with the recent revelations of historic

:46:47.:46:54.

sexual abuse in football. Fifa says it is monitoring allegations of

:46:55.:46:58.

child sex abuse within English football closely. "We are aware of

:46:59.:47:02.

the allegations. Fifa considers the frOks and young people as

:47:03.:47:07.

fundamental in football and we will monitor the situation closely." Fifa

:47:08.:47:13.

saying they are aware of the allegations in British football. We

:47:14.:47:16.

are monitoring them closely and we consider the protection of children

:47:17.:47:20.

and young people fundamental in football."

If you want to see our interview with the four men who were on the

:47:25.:47:30.

programme on Friday morning, former professional footballers, former

:47:31.:47:32.

junior footballers who talked very movingly about the kind of sexual

:47:33.:47:36.

abuse that they experienced as little boys, then go to YouTube and

:47:37.:47:40.

you will be able to find the full interview there.

:47:41.:47:51.

OK - spoiler alert - we're going to talk about Strictly

:47:52.:47:57.

And for both programmes it was the end of the novelty act.

:47:58.:48:03.

After ten weeks Ed Balls finally got booted out with politicians

:48:04.:48:05.

from all parties saying how much he'll be missed.

:48:06.:48:09.

His old adversary the former Prime Minister David Cameron says

:48:10.:48:11.

the programme "wouldn't be the same without him".

:48:12.:48:13.

If people watching have had half the fun I've had learning to dance

:48:14.:49:51.

with Katya then they must have had a complete blast because it's

:49:52.:49:53.

Goodness gracious, Ed Balls on fire! At least Ed Balls got to dance with

:49:54.:50:12.

our own Carol before he got booted off!

:50:13.:50:18.

And... LAUGHTER

:50:19.:50:26.

Well done. Well done. Well done. If I say honey, you say toast.

:50:27.:50:32.

Honey. Toast. It is Honey G time.

:50:33.:50:48.

# Whose hot? # Can't you hear the music?

:50:49.:50:55.

# Now, push it. # Push it good.

:50:56.:51:05.

# Push it real good. # Unemployment a record high.

:51:06.:51:11.

# Coming coming, people going and I don't know why.

:51:12.:51:14.

# Don't ask me because I don't know why, but it's like that

:51:15.:51:22.

# And that's the way it is. # No fingerprints.

:51:23.:51:27.

# Watch your back. # Come on.

:51:28.:51:35.

# When I say honey, you say G. # Honey.

:51:36.:51:44.

# When I say honey, you say go. # Honey.

:51:45.:51:56.

My friend Kathy can do the best impression of Honey G. Let's speak

:51:57.:52:20.

to Ann Widdecombe who was on Strictly this 2010. She was knocked

:52:21.:52:24.

out in week ten, that's the exact week as Ed Balls. Arc nn, good

:52:25.:52:29.

morning. Good morning. What did you think of his journey? I thought he

:52:30.:52:34.

was tremendously entertaining. He was enjoying T the first week I

:52:35.:52:37.

thought oh dear there, isn't going to work because he looked stiff and

:52:38.:52:43.

formal, but somebody gave him some good advice and from we can two

:52:44.:52:47.

onwards he really looked as if he was enjoying it. But he was

:52:48.:52:51.

improving, wasn't? That's something I could never say. But he did

:52:52.:52:57.

improve. I wonder if there are similarities with you in that,

:52:58.:53:02.

suddenly you go on Strictly as a former politician and you become a

:53:03.:53:06.

much-loved human being? Well, the thing is that people see a side of

:53:07.:53:10.

you that they never saw before and quite right, you you know, we were

:53:11.:53:19.

both doing serious jobs. Both of us were released from those

:53:20.:53:23.

responsibilities and threw ourselves into enjoying ourselves and that's

:53:24.:53:27.

infectious. Did it take you time to think I've got to, you know, get rid

:53:28.:53:32.

of any inhibitions to really go for this? Oh, I kept some inhibitions.

:53:33.:53:36.

There were things I wouldn't do and made that very clear from the start!

:53:37.:53:40.

I'm sure the same was true of Ed. He probably said, I will do this, but I

:53:41.:53:48.

won't do that and that's acceptable. All they want is for to you feel

:53:49.:53:53.

comfortable about what you're doing. Who was your partner? It was Anton

:53:54.:53:59.

Du Beke! How could I forget that? Peu would! Do you think they put him

:54:00.:54:04.

with you or you with him? Yes. If you think about the height

:54:05.:54:08.

difference, normally they wouldn't have made that pairing. But I think

:54:09.:54:13.

they made it because he is very good with the duffers, he is good with

:54:14.:54:17.

the old ladies. I think it was, they got it right. Did you see Ed Balls

:54:18.:54:33.

gangnam style? He was hugely entertaining and huge fun and when

:54:34.:54:36.

that happens the public will vote for you to come back. If the

:54:37.:54:42.

programme was about dancing, you wouldn't have people like me and Ed

:54:43.:54:47.

in it in the first place. Thank you for talking to us. Bye-bye.

:54:48.:54:56.

Thank you for your messages about the film we ran earlier about the

:56:30.:56:33.

was this morning. Temperature here #34i news seven Celsius or so. Not

captured by a less brave soul, one of our Weather Watchers Trish in

London. We have a mishmash. A week ago it was Storm Angus and now it is

:56:53.:56:58.

quieter. We have got an area of high pressure and that's drawing in the

:56:59.:57:01.

colder air which is showing itself across the eastern side of the

:57:02.:57:04.

British Isles as clearer skies and we're going to push that a little

:57:05.:57:07.

bit further towards the north and west through the course of the day.

:57:08.:57:13.

We will have a glorious prospect of sunshine in the afternoon.

Temperatures not really responding to the sun sheuvenlt it is on the

will feel it cold. We will keep the cloud across Northern Ireland for a

:57:26.:57:30.

good part of the day and further north, the temperatures locked two,

:57:31.:57:33.

three, four, five Celsius something of that order, but there will be

:57:34.:57:36.

sunshine, and variable amounts of cloud. As soon as the sun goes down,

:57:37.:57:40.

the temperatures are going to fall away. I was talking about minus

:57:41.:57:45.

seven Celsius in the north of Scotland. Even in the towns and the

:57:46.:57:50.

cities, we will be looking at temperatures really falling away and

that's the picture in the countryside. Somewhere in the

:58:18.:58:21.

will be scraping your cars across England and Wales. The temperatures

never really recover. Three, four, five Celsius and that's if you can

get rid of the fog. There will be a wee bit of fog around and it will

dent the temperatures further. Tuesday and into Wednesday, high

of dry weather, but is it warm? No! Good morning. It is Monday. This

:59:01.:59:12.

morning children living with facial disfigurements tell us about the

:59:13.:59:15.

bullying they experience on a daily basis.

:59:16.:59:20.

One time I was ten, and someone came up to me and said if they look like

:59:21.:59:28.

me, I would -- they would kill themselves. After, I came home and

:59:29.:59:30.

burst into tears. Also on the programme,

:00:17.:00:24.

Almost none of the so-called add-on treatments offered by fertility

:00:25.:00:30.

clinics to boost IVF success rates are backed by scientific research

:00:31.:00:32.

according to findings. The research was commissioned

:00:33.:00:35.

by the BBC's Panorama programme, and is also published

:00:36.:00:38.

in the British Medical Journal. It found that of the 27 different

:00:39.:00:40.

treatments examined, only one was supported by even

:00:41.:00:42.

moderate evidence that it could increase the chances

:00:43.:00:44.

of having a baby. The fertility regulator says it has

As many as seven professional football clubs are now embroiled

:06:32.:06:36.

in the historic child sex abuse scandal.

:06:37.:06:40.

All the cases of sexual abuse in football revealed so far go back

:06:41.:06:44.

decades, but the trigger for the latest revelation came just a week

:06:45.:06:48.

Andy Woodward was the first to come forward, speaking

:06:49.:06:53.

publicly for the first time about the abuse he received

:06:54.:06:56.

in the 1980s as a boy at Crewe Alexandra.

:06:57.:06:58.

All I wanted to do was be a footballer,

:06:59.:07:01.

it was my dream, it was something I had always wanted to do.

:07:02.:07:06.

He threatened me in a way that that was going to

:07:07.:07:08.

He was abused by his former coach, Barry Bennell,

:07:09.:07:15.

a man who later went to prison three times for child sex offences.

:07:16.:07:23.

Bennell worked as a scout or coach for a number

:07:24.:07:25.

of clubs in the north-west of

:07:26.:07:28.

England including Stoke, Crewe Alexandra and Manchester City.

:07:29.:07:33.

As well as showing them skills and explaining the game to

:07:34.:07:41.

them, we show them that there is more to it than coming here one hour

:07:42.:07:44.

Some others came forward saying that Barry Bennell had abused them too.

:07:45.:07:53.

At the end of last week, four of his victims decided to speak out

:07:54.:07:56.

All of this has got to be rectified as soon as possible.

:07:57.:08:04.

More footballers came forward, this time saying

:08:05.:08:08.

they were abused not by Barry Bennell but different coaches.

:08:09.:08:12.

Former England international Paul Stewart said that he was assaulted

:08:13.:08:14.

But I felt that I needed to do this so that other people will come out.

:08:15.:08:33.

As of today, four different police forces say that they are

:08:34.:08:36.

investigating cases of historical sex abuse in football.

:08:37.:08:44.

Northumbria, Cheshire, Hampshire and the Met Police in London.

:08:45.:08:47.

A special NSPCC hotline has taken more than

:08:48.:08:49.

The head of the Professional Footballers Association

:08:50.:08:57.

said yesterday that allegations had also been made against other clubs.

:08:58.:09:02.

has now said there will be an independent review

:09:03.:09:06.

and what actions clubs should and could have taken at the time.

:09:07.:09:14.

This programme has been contacted by a number of former players

:09:15.:09:18.

who also allege abuse since our interview

:09:19.:09:21.

with Chris Unsworth, Jason Dunford, Steve Walters and Andy Woodward.

:09:22.:09:26.

We hope to talk to some of those over the coming weeks and months,

:09:27.:09:29.

but here's a reminder of that interview which prompted such

:09:30.:09:32.

It began... He used to pick me up. I was probably one of the closest lads

:09:33.:09:47.

that lived to his house. In the Peak District. He used to pick me up and

:09:48.:09:56.

the abuse started in the car. He used to touch. We used to play games

:09:57.:10:01.

in the car. And that's when it all started. And that would be on the

:10:02.:10:07.

way to training? On the way to training and on the way back. And

:10:08.:10:12.

then he invited you to stay over at his house? That happened a little

:10:13.:10:19.

bit later, but not long after. At first, it was, you know, two, three

:10:20.:10:26.

or four lads who used to stay there. There was always two or three... And

:10:27.:10:34.

I'm going to ask you, Chris, what he did to you. At first it started, you

:10:35.:10:42.

know, the games used to start. It was hands everywhere, then down the

:10:43.:10:47.

pants. And then, later, it got more serious. In the bedroom. Where there

:10:48.:10:56.

was penetration. Things like that. What age were you? I was about nine.

:10:57.:11:03.

And if you want to watch that full interview,

:11:04.:11:06.

you can find it on YouTube or our programme page,

:11:07.:11:08.

just type Victoria Derbyshire and football into YouTube

:11:09.:11:10.

Since that interview, Andy Woodward tweeted,

:11:11.:11:19.

"Just had a message someone was going to take her life and saw

:11:20.:11:23.

She now wants to live. We will survive and fight it."

:11:24.:11:32.

We have been overwhelmed with e-mails and text messages from you.

:11:33.:11:40.

I'm going to read a couple, no names. The revelations from the

:11:41.:11:44.

footballers on your programme has been incredibly difficult for me to

:11:45.:11:49.

watch. As a six-year-old boy, I was sexually abused once by a male

:11:50.:11:53.

neighbour. Just once. It's had a massive impact on my life since. I

:11:54.:11:59.

cannot imagine what repeated abuse must be like. And this, from another

:12:00.:12:05.

viewer. I watched your programme and cried many tears with your guests,

:12:06.:12:09.

because it brought back so much hurt, which still feels so raw. I

:12:10.:12:18.

was also a victim of Barry Bennell at Butlins, I didn't even connect

:12:19.:12:24.

him but I looked at photos of him with the dreaded Man City top on

:12:25.:12:28.

that I will always see him wearing in the indoor soccer school. Thank

:12:29.:12:32.

you for your programme, and I have now contacted the number you gave

:12:33.:12:35.

and had an hour-long conversation with them. I am passing on all the

:12:36.:12:39.

information to the relevant police authorities. Thank you for those.

:12:40.:12:50.

And if you've been affected by any of the issues you can find a list

:12:51.:12:53.

of helplines on the BBC's Action Line.

:12:54.:12:55.

All four men we spoke to in that exclusive interview say

:12:56.:13:00.

they were abused by a man called Barry Bennell,

:13:01.:13:03.

who worked at a number of clubs, including Crewe as a youth coach.

:13:04.:13:06.

Bennell has been imprisoned three times in total for child sex

:13:07.:13:09.

offences, including one spell in an American jail.

:13:10.:13:12.

Dario Gradi, who was Crewe Alexandra's manager for more

:13:13.:13:14.

than 24 years between 1983 and 2007, and is now their director

:13:15.:13:19.

of football and academy director, has offered "sympathy to the victims

:13:20.:13:22.

He said he knew nothing about Bennell's abuse of young

:13:23.:13:29.

footballers until his arrest in the US in 1994.

:13:30.:13:34.

He was questioned about it in a documentary for Channel 4

:13:35.:13:38.

This is what he said when questioned by the reporter about children

:13:39.:13:42.

Did you know some boys were staying virtually every weekend, every

:13:43.:13:50.

school holiday, spending a huge amount of time at his house? Yes,

:13:51.:13:56.

but they all seemed to be happy and quite contented kids. Did any of

:13:57.:13:59.

them tell you they were sleeping in his bed? No. Not at all. Presumably

:14:00.:14:06.

something the club would not approve of? Definitely not. Bearing in mind

:14:07.:14:15.

there is testimony of him abusing before he was here, he has pleaded

:14:16.:14:19.

guilty to abusing after he was her, do you believe it is possible he was

:14:20.:14:23.

abusing the boys while he was at Crewe? Of course I think it's

:14:24.:14:28.

possible, but I don't think at the time we had any cause for concern.

:14:29.:14:31.

That was in 1996. Like hundreds of parents up and down

:14:32.:14:34.

the country I spend quite a few Sunday mornings during the football

:14:35.:14:37.

season watching my young boys play Yesterday I asked other mums

:14:38.:14:40.

and dads supporting their children on the touchline, how they'd reacted

:14:41.:14:43.

the revelations of the last week or so, and whether they think

:14:44.:14:46.

it could happen now. I felt physically sick. I heard it

:14:47.:14:57.

on the radio. I was sick. Why did you have such a visceral reaction? I

:14:58.:15:04.

think because the abuse of authority, and that relationship, I

:15:05.:15:09.

can't imagine anyone actually ever doing that. What can I say? Just

:15:10.:15:16.

shocked. You have a young boy who plays football in a local team. Yes.

:15:17.:15:23.

Did it make you think again about what he does every weekend, the

:15:24.:15:27.

coaching and the training? Yes, I'm afraid it did. I don't think it's a

:15:28.:15:33.

position to be alone with a coach for anything to happen... It did

:15:34.:15:37.

make me think again, absolutely right. Just because you don't know,

:15:38.:15:43.

that it's not happening, doesn't mean it isn't. Do you think it could

:15:44.:15:50.

happen now? Yes. Really shocking, to be honest. Upsetting. I just feel

:15:51.:15:55.

sorry for every victim that's been abused. Have you got your own

:15:56.:16:00.

children who play football for a local club? No, I have a

:16:01.:16:08.

three-year-old daughter. Gymnastics, things like that. So I haven't. But

:16:09.:16:14.

it's an issue for any parent whose kids do any kind of sport,

:16:15.:16:18.

safeguarding their future? It's massive. I don't even know... You

:16:19.:16:24.

would like to think that doesn't go on any more. I've heard a few

:16:25.:16:33.

people's views. One of them said that's what he felt he had to do to

:16:34.:16:37.

get in the starting line-up, everything like that. Yeah, I hope

:16:38.:16:44.

it doesn't go on. I initially thought the guy who came out was

:16:45.:16:49.

really brave. It was fantastic, asking, because what he's done can't

:16:50.:16:57.

change the past, but what's happening now... It will be

:16:58.:17:02.

scrutinised. And hopefully the kids and everyone involved will be a lot

:17:03.:17:06.

safer. Hopefully the people who are doing the coaching in football are

:17:07.:17:10.

not going to be looked on in the wrong way. But hopefully... The kids

:17:11.:17:19.

will be safer. What was your initial reaction? Obviously you feel sorry

:17:20.:17:28.

for the guy, but it's a good thing that everyone's been made aware of

:17:29.:17:34.

the situation. As John says, hopefully it makes our kids a lot

:17:35.:17:38.

safer. Very sad to think that you leave your children with someone you

:17:39.:17:44.

trust, and they are taken advantage of. It's just a dreadful, absolutely

:17:45.:17:48.

dreadful. Their childhood has been taken away. And also it makes you

:17:49.:17:55.

feel really mistrustful of men who work with children, which is such a

:17:56.:18:01.

shame. The vast majority of intentions will be good, but it

:18:02.:18:05.

makes you not want to leave your children with anyone. That's really

:18:06.:18:10.

sad, actually. A sad indictment. You are supporting your boys, they play

:18:11.:18:14.

every Sunday morning with loads of other boys. Up and down the country

:18:15.:18:18.

this goes on. Do you think it could happen now? I think parents are a

:18:19.:18:24.

lot more aware of making their children aware of what is right and

:18:25.:18:29.

wrong. Making sure that if anything like that happens, that they would

:18:30.:18:33.

never ever get into trouble, they would say straightaway, no one has

:18:34.:18:36.

the right to touch them if they don't want to be touched. Just

:18:37.:18:40.

protect them. You have to be open and honest with them and encourage

:18:41.:18:45.

them to talk, if they feel like anything untoward is going on. They

:18:46.:18:49.

have to be able to open up and talk about it.

:18:50.:18:53.

And if you want to contact the dedicated NSPCC helpline

:18:54.:18:55.

to report abuse, you can call it 24 hours a day on: 0800 023 2642.

:18:56.:19:08.

The UK's leading charity for people with facial disfigurements has told

:19:09.:19:10.

this programme "face bullying" in schools could be a bigger problem

:19:11.:19:13.

than racism or homophobia because it's not as recognised.

:19:14.:19:16.

The facial disfigurement charity Changing Faces has introduced lesson

:19:17.:19:18.

plans in a small number of schools, to challenge perceptions that people

:19:19.:19:22.

who don't look like most other people are unsuccessful,

:19:23.:19:24.

They now want to roll out their education programme,

:19:25.:19:30.

to tackle what is feels is a hidden problem,

:19:31.:19:36.

which leads to misery and even mental illness for some children

:19:37.:19:39.

Our reporter Ashley John Baptiste has been to meet three

:19:40.:19:45.

children who've suffered prejudice and bullying

:19:46.:19:46.

We played you his full film earlier in the programme.

:19:47.:19:50.

Every face tells a story. The twin who doesn't look like the other.

:19:51.:20:05.

The boy scarred from birth. The girl who can't smile.

:20:06.:20:12.

Different stories, but similar experiences. Billy's family have

:20:13.:20:17.

struggled to even take him out in public. At time it can be soul

:20:18.:20:23.

detroug it really can. Because as a parent you just want to protect your

:20:24.:20:28.

child. How do you feel about that? Annoyed. He gets annoyed. Do you

:20:29.:20:35.

feel annoyed? Billy is nine. He is a twivenlt he was born with Apert's

:20:36.:20:39.

syndrome. It is a cranial facial condition. The paediatric registrar

:20:40.:20:45.

didn't even refer to Billy as a baby. He just said, "I have never

:20:46.:20:52.

seen anything like it before." Marcus is 12 and a talented

:20:53.:20:57.

trampolinist, but he was born with a cleft, a gap in his face. Some

:20:58.:21:03.

people called me Far Face and one times I was like ten and someone

:21:04.:21:07.

came up to me and said, "If they looked like me, they would kill

:21:08.:21:12.

themselves." Looking different is tough for any

:21:13.:21:16.

kid, but especially when you are a teenage girl and image is

:21:17.:21:19.

everything. I've come to Somerset to meet a young girl who has a facial

:21:20.:21:23.

condition that means she can't smile. Caitlin was only a baby when

:21:24.:21:29.

she developed a large benign tumour on the side of her face. They took

:21:30.:21:34.

the whole tumour out and while doing that, they caught the smiling nerve

:21:35.:21:39.

and as a result of that, she came round with facial palsy. When did

:21:40.:21:43.

people start to bully you? When I was seven, I think, that's when it

:21:44.:21:47.

all started. What sort of things did people say? Mainly that I wasn't

:21:48.:21:51.

receipty enough to be in their group and they didn't want to be friends

:21:52.:21:55.

with me because I was weird or I looked different. What did the

:21:56.:21:58.

school do to support you? Nothing. Literally nothing. This school in

:21:59.:22:03.

London is pretty rare. It is one of the few in the country teaching face

:22:04.:22:09.

equality. Why do you think so many schools are behind the trend when it

:22:10.:22:13.

comes to supporting kids with facial disfigurement? Think it is the

:22:14.:22:20.

pressures they have got to get the academic results up. That's the

:22:21.:22:23.

biggest priority for most of the schools. The schoolchildren are

:22:24.:22:28.

meeting Marcus and Caitlin? Was it more hard to make friends at school?

:22:29.:22:34.

It wasn't hard when I first started school, but as I grew up and people

:22:35.:22:38.

grow up and we started to realise I was a bit different so I think,

:22:39.:22:44.

yeah. You shouldn't really care. Just, it is not you with the

:22:45.:22:48.

problem, it's the people that bully you. Let's talk to Billy Mitchell

:22:49.:23:06.

who has Apert's syndrome. And his twin sister, Lois.

:23:07.:23:08.

Let's talk now to James Partridge the founder of Changing Faces.

:23:09.:23:12.

Joan Norris who opposes distinct curriculum for targeting

:23:13.:23:14.

Chelsea Burger who has had facial palsy since birth.

:23:15.:23:25.

Tell us what Billy's school has done to tackle bullying and prejudice

:23:26.:23:32.

because of the way Billy looks? We were quite proactive as parents with

:23:33.:23:36.

Billy and we wanted from the outset's Billy's school life to be

:23:37.:23:40.

really just the same as Lois' was going to be. So we asked Changing

:23:41.:23:47.

Faces to come and do a whole class assembly, a whole school assembly

:23:48.:23:51.

more about facial disfigurement which they came in and did. And they

:23:52.:23:56.

also took some time out to talk to the teachers in the school about how

:23:57.:24:02.

to deal with bullying and unwanted attention, you know, that Billy was

:24:03.:24:06.

to get say they were out on a school trip or something like that. And how

:24:07.:24:09.

much difference has that made to Billy's quality of life at school?

:24:10.:24:15.

Massively actually. His peers, they just see Billy as Billy. They look

:24:16.:24:20.

beyond the face and see, you know, Billy for the child who he is. His

:24:21.:24:26.

face doesn't define Billy at all. And he is treated very well. His

:24:27.:24:31.

school is very inclusive and you know the leadership team have been

:24:32.:24:35.

fantastic. Billy, how much do you enjoy school? Very much. Do you?

:24:36.:24:39.

Yeah. What's your favourite subject? Maths. Is it? Clever little boy.

:24:40.:24:44.

Lois, what have you done in the past when people have been mean to your

:24:45.:24:50.

brother? When they make fun of him, I stand in front of him so I can

:24:51.:24:55.

block their view. Do you? Yeah. What do you think about that, Billy?

:24:56.:25:02.

Good. Well done you Lois. Really well done. Chelsea, tell us what

:25:03.:25:08.

facial palsy is. Basically, facial palsy is a weakness on one of the

:25:09.:25:12.

sides of your face. It is just nerves aren't quite strong enough.

:25:13.:25:18.

And it can affect you by closing your eyes, watery eyes and even

:25:19.:25:21.

eating sometimes. Sometimes speaking as well. When you're tired it does

:25:22.:25:28.

get worse as it goes on. What sort of bullying have you experienced?

:25:29.:25:32.

Name calling. People pinching my things. Is this just at school or as

:25:33.:25:38.

an adult? Well, it was worse when I was at school even physical

:25:39.:25:41.

sometimes, but as I got older I thought it is going to stop. It is

:25:42.:25:45.

going to stop. I did my dream job and it didn't. A lady started

:25:46.:25:50.

bullying me again and inn my dream job and I thought when am I going to

:25:51.:25:54.

get out of it? I moved away from that job and now I don't get any

:25:55.:25:59.

bother anymore. I found Facial Policy UK website where there is a

:26:00.:26:04.

lady called Karen and she talks to you 24 hours a day. If you're

:26:05.:26:07.

feeling down, she talks to you and that helps a lot, but there is a

:26:08.:26:14.

reminder on Snapchat. There is a filter that makes your face go side

:26:15.:26:19.

ways. It is horrible. It needs to be stopped. Why? It just, I think, it

:26:20.:26:26.

is like yes, we have facial palsy, a few of the girls have been getting

:26:27.:26:32.

Snapchats of lads taking the mick saying, "This is what you look like.

:26:33.:26:38.

" What kind of comments have people made to you about your face?

:26:39.:26:47.

Monster. You shouldn't be alive. It is not nice. Not nice at all. That's

:26:48.:26:52.

unbelievable. It is just vile. It is. It is. James, tell us why you

:26:53.:26:59.

think specific education about facial disfigurement in classrooms

:27:00.:27:02.

would be really useful? Well, clearly, we have to support and

:27:03.:27:06.

empower kids and young people themselves to deal with this stuff

:27:07.:27:12.

when it happens. But our view is that actually, this subject has been

:27:13.:27:19.

so pushed away and neglected in the ethos setting of the school that we

:27:20.:27:23.

need to bring it up. Hopefully over a five year period perhaps. It will

:27:24.:27:30.

become normal or obvious, but I think at this stage, we think we

:27:31.:27:37.

need to push face equality up into being not just sort of oh,

:27:38.:27:44.

Euro-sceptics it is a nice add-on, but integral in the Respect Agenda

:27:45.:27:49.

that all schools should have, but also teaching kids that you can

:27:50.:27:56.

interact normally and positively and inclusively with all kids, you

:27:57.:28:01.

notion unusual appearance or not. I think that's, that needs to be done

:28:02.:28:06.

as a measure for at least five years because what we're hearing is this

:28:07.:28:09.

is too common. This shouldn't be happening. There is a rudeness

:28:10.:28:14.

culture which we need to attack. Does it not come under the general

:28:15.:28:19.

umbrella of bullying though which is what you feel Joan? My feelings are

:28:20.:28:24.

it should be part of the general ethos of the school. So it is about

:28:25.:28:30.

feeling that, you have a bullying policy, but you have to think every

:28:31.:28:34.

single day what does that mean within your school and that's within

:28:35.:28:38.

the whole school community? Children will come into the classroom with

:28:39.:28:43.

all sorts of issues, whatever that might be, and teachers need to be

:28:44.:28:48.

skilful at spotting all of that and certainly if they feel that there is

:28:49.:28:51.

bullying going on or name calling or whatever, they need to have the

:28:52.:28:56.

equipment to deal with that instantly. You want something more

:28:57.:29:00.

specific, James, don't you? You see our view is disfigurement has been

:29:01.:29:05.

covered as a protected character Starc in the Equality Act, but it

:29:06.:29:11.

hasn't been given the same attention that racism and sexism and so on has

:29:12.:29:16.

been and so what we're seeking is to raise this and make sure that

:29:17.:29:22.

schools, under their public sector duty, their equality duty, actually

:29:23.:29:25.

have to show that they are taking this seriously. That face equality

:29:26.:29:30.

is embedded and you're right, we must make sure that the policing of

:29:31.:29:35.

it, the policies and the practise to stamp it out are there too. So

:29:36.:29:40.

parents actually have the sort of assurance that they need that their

:29:41.:29:44.

children are safe and this is a safety issue, as much as anything.

:29:45.:29:48.

What do you think, Denise? I totally agree. Education is really, really

:29:49.:29:53.

the most important thing to promote face equality. I think if we hadn't

:29:54.:29:59.

had Changing Faces go into the school, the cranial facial nurse

:30:00.:30:04.

from great or Monday street, Billy's life might have been a lot

:30:05.:30:08.

different. I really fear for his secondary school in particular. Do

:30:09.:30:11.

you? Yeah, I do, much more so. I think you really need to get

:30:12.:30:17.

children in their formative years, not just once, keep on and on,

:30:18.:30:21.

educating them and bringing it to the fore front and for schools to be

:30:22.:30:25.

inclusive as well. What difference would this have made to you at

:30:26.:30:28.

primary school, Chelsea? A hell of a difference. It wasn't just kids in

:30:29.:30:32.

school. I think if the parents told them it wasn't right, if they were

:30:33.:30:38.

guided how to approach us, we are normal people. We shouldn't be

:30:39.:30:42.

treated any different. I do think it would have made a hell of a

:30:43.:30:48.

difference. Some comments from people watching around the country.

:30:49.:30:52.

"Christian on Facebook. I love these kids. Talking about you, Billy. And

:30:53.:31:01.

Lois. Concern, "As the mother of a child who suffered facial palsy, I

:31:02.:31:07.

support programmes like this. In schools, in social clubs, I'm not

:31:08.:31:11.

bothered where, but as adults we are responsible for making sure every

:31:12.:31:16.

child feels special. Those two children, Billy and Lois, are brave

:31:17.:31:23.

and mature and beyond their years and a huge high five to them for

:31:24.:31:28.

standing up for every child who has suffered like them and my daughter.

:31:29.:31:32.

Something like facial palsy is frightening enough for the child to

:31:33.:31:35.

come to terms with without there being a bullying problem to cope

:31:36.:31:39.

with. My daughter has been lucky. Despite being only eight, her

:31:40.:31:42.

friends have been amazing and helped her cope. Children who say mean

:31:43.:31:50.

things and stare are afraid. Keep up the good work those who are involved

:31:51.:31:54.

in this project." The website is really good and there

:31:55.:31:58.

necessarily the case. We now know who two

:37:29.:37:31.

of the three main candidates for the French presidential

:37:32.:37:33.

elections in April will be. Francois Fillon was last night

:37:34.:37:35.

overwhelmingly chosen to represent the main centre-right Republican

:37:36.:37:39.

party in the forthcoming election. He will stand against Marine Le Pen,

:37:40.:37:41.

of the far-right National Front, and a Socialist candidate that

:37:42.:37:44.

hasn't yet been selected, but could be Francois Hollande,

:37:45.:37:47.

the current President who's fairly So who are the contenders?

:37:48.:37:51.

What do they stand for? And what will a victory for any

:37:52.:37:58.

of the candidates mean for the UK? We can speak to Jacques Myard,

:37:59.:38:08.

a member of the Republicans Party. And Agnes Poirier,

:38:09.:38:11.

a political commentator. Tell the British audience what

:38:12.:38:17.

people in France were voting for yesterday. First of all, it was the

:38:18.:38:23.

first time the French right were holding primaries. Secondly, it was

:38:24.:38:29.

not just for the people on the right... In a way it's very exciting

:38:30.:38:37.

as a democratic exercise. There were two rounds. The people who voted, a

:38:38.:38:45.

lot of people, want to... INAUDIBLE.

:38:46.:38:52.

I'm so sorry to interrupt. It is a really bad line, I'm so sorry. While

:38:53.:38:58.

we sort that out, I'm going to bring in Jack. Tell us about Francois

:38:59.:39:04.

Fillon. What is he promising? First of all, I would say that this

:39:05.:39:11.

exercise was a big success. It is true that many French rotas came and

:39:12.:39:17.

voted. Not only on the right-hand side of the political scene. --

:39:18.:39:22.

French voters. They wanted Alain Juppe instead of Francois Fillon.

:39:23.:39:27.

Francois Fillon is a man of experience, but he has something

:39:28.:39:32.

more. Of course he has a project in terms of cutting expenses, cutting

:39:33.:39:39.

the Secret Service... You know, he wants to get rid of 500,000 civil

:39:40.:39:44.

servants. He will go step-by-step and it will not be a shock, you

:39:45.:39:51.

know, in one shot. But it has something more. I think he has been

:39:52.:39:57.

succeeding because he is of a quiet strength, he appears as a man of

:39:58.:40:01.

calm and serenity. When Juppe was very excited... This is what I

:40:02.:40:10.

think, he forces confidence. I think this is one of his main, you know,

:40:11.:40:15.

strengths, main argument to win. But of course it is not yet finished.

:40:16.:40:22.

How will Mr Fillon go about trying to beat Marine Le Pen from the

:40:23.:40:27.

National Front, and whoever the Socialist candidate will be? Yes,

:40:28.:40:33.

well, I think he has a good chance. I think Le Pen, of course she now

:40:34.:40:41.

has a challenger. She will very likely be in the second round of the

:40:42.:40:45.

presidential election. But I don't think that she has a good chance to

:40:46.:40:50.

win, because there are many, many, let's say a huge majority of the

:40:51.:40:55.

French who would like to have her as a president. But she will be in the

:40:56.:40:59.

second round, it's likely. The strength of Fillon, he also attracts

:41:00.:41:09.

people who have voted for Le Pen in the past election. Because, you

:41:10.:41:12.

know, he has the support of a great part of the conservative Catholics,

:41:13.:41:17.

for instance, who sometimes have been voting for the extreme right. I

:41:18.:41:21.

believe they will come back to Fillon. Agnes, what is Marine Le Pen

:41:22.:41:32.

promising voters should she win? INAUDIBLE.

:41:33.:41:37.

She will go through to the second round, it is almost a mathematical

:41:38.:41:41.

fact, because the left is so fragmented. Francois Hollande and

:41:42.:41:49.

his Prime Minister, to be chosen at the next primaries...

:41:50.:41:57.

INAUDIBLE. The most likely to win against

:41:58.:42:01.

Marine Le Pen in the second round, that is the question. Francois

:42:02.:42:08.

Fillon, perhaps. A lot of people on the left think that Fillon...

:42:09.:42:13.

I'm so sorry, it is just a horrible line, really sorry about that. We

:42:14.:42:20.

persist, because we don't like to give up, but I am afraid on that we

:42:21.:42:24.

are just giving up, I am really sorry.

:42:25.:42:27.

When you make the decision to try IVF to have a baby

:42:28.:42:34.

you are vulnerable, both emotionally, financially, with each

:42:35.:42:36.

round of treatment for those not eligible for NHS funding costing

:42:37.:42:39.

Many UK fertility clinics also offer "add-on" fertility

:42:40.:42:46.

treatments which can cost anything up to ?3,500 on top of

:42:47.:42:48.

But this evening's Panorama suggests that

:42:49.:42:55.

almost none of these "add-on" treatments are backed up by high

:42:56.:42:58.

Of the 27 different treatments available, the study found only one

:42:59.:43:02.

was supported by even moderate evidence that it could help women

:43:03.:43:05.

We can talk to Professor Carl Heneghan from Oxford University's

:43:06.:43:12.

Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, who conducted the research

:43:13.:43:14.

Juliet Tizzard is from the Human Fertilisation

:43:15.:43:19.

and Embryology Authority, which regulates IVF.

:43:20.:43:24.

And parents Frankie and Tom Wheeler, who paid approximately ?6,000

:43:25.:43:28.

for a number of "add-on" fertility treatments, on top of

:43:29.:43:30.

And joining us from Nottingham is Dr Simon Fishel, founder

:43:31.:43:35.

And we haven't introduced this delightful little baby here.

:43:36.:43:49.

Bridget. She is seven months. Congratulations. Welcome to the

:43:50.:43:54.

programme. Professor, when we say add-on treatments, what are we

:43:55.:44:00.

talking about? A cycle of IVF includes using the embryo and

:44:01.:44:03.

implanting it, plus some drugs, but beyond that there are add-on

:44:04.:44:08.

treatments you can be offered at the clinic. We have found there is

:44:09.:44:12.

considerable variation across the UK in who offers what. No consistency.

:44:13.:44:17.

That shows a problem immediately, because if it is an evidence-based

:44:18.:44:21.

approach and it is shown to make a difference, you will offer the

:44:22.:44:24.

treatment to everyone. That is the standard way we work in clinical

:44:25.:44:29.

practice. If you are not quite sure, you may offer it in some way, some

:44:30.:44:33.

clinics are using this to say, we are better than another clinic, we

:44:34.:44:37.

have an advantage because of this, trying to do their own little

:44:38.:44:40.

studies based on their own data, and then say, well, in the last ten

:44:41.:44:44.

babies we have delivered, they had this treatment. And then you said at

:44:45.:44:49.

the beginning, you get the situation where the motive... It is very

:44:50.:44:54.

difficult to get a balanced decision based on the evidence. One of the

:44:55.:44:59.

treatments you looked at, PGS involves screening the embryo for

:45:00.:45:06.

abnormalities. That is the really interesting one. The first version

:45:07.:45:10.

of it was shown to reduce your chance of having a baby. For every

:45:11.:45:15.

thousand women who had this treatment, there was 147 less babies

:45:16.:45:21.

born. It took ten years to do the trials. Until we discovered that.

:45:22.:45:28.

And then in about 2008, everyone said, OK, this is not a good thing

:45:29.:45:33.

to do, let's stop doing it. The problem is, we now have PGS version

:45:34.:45:40.

two, with newer tests. They are doing them in the light of poor

:45:41.:45:44.

quality evidence. Offering them to couples at high costs. Hello,

:45:45.:45:51.

Doctor, you have found Care fertility clinics. You offer PGS at

:45:52.:45:58.

your clinics. How much does it cost? About ?2500, added onto the IVF

:45:59.:46:04.

procedure. Poor quality evidence for offering it, according to the

:46:05.:46:08.

Professor? Of course, unfortunately, the professor is talking about a

:46:09.:46:12.

study that was done ten years ago. The study itself was widely

:46:13.:46:17.

criticised as being flawed. There is indeed some very difficult problems

:46:18.:46:22.

about getting the evidence. So the European Society of human

:46:23.:46:25.

reproduction decided it needed to conduct a trial. It has been

:46:26.:46:29.

undertaking that trial for six years. It hasn't been able to

:46:30.:46:34.

recruit. It will probably not ever published the trial. So why are you

:46:35.:46:37.

offering this until we have the evidence? Let me tell you, when it

:46:38.:46:43.

does publish this trial, it is two generations of technology out of

:46:44.:46:46.

date. We are now in a situation where we have moved on in the field

:46:47.:46:51.

and we have technology to overcome a real clinical problem. 70% of

:46:52.:46:55.

embryos do not make babies. One of the biggest causes of the problem is

:46:56.:47:00.

chromosomal errors that arise in those embryos. And we now have the

:47:01.:47:05.

technology, and we know from the US recently, none of this is covered or

:47:06.:47:08.

considered in the Oxford academic paper. 140,000 embryos were tracked

:47:09.:47:19.

last year in America. Those which used PGS, they had 12% higher live

:47:20.:47:27.

birth rate. It is an extra 16,000 babies because PGS was used. What do

:47:28.:47:33.

we say to a 35-year-old woman, a couple who want a baby? They have

:47:34.:47:38.

had a miscarriage, they may have tried IVF and it doesn't work. 35,

:47:39.:47:45.

36, 37 years old. Do we say we have this technology at the moment, this

:47:46.:47:48.

is the limited evidence we have available... Do you accept that,

:47:49.:47:54.

Professor? You are giving couples a choice? I accept completely that you

:47:55.:47:59.

give couples a choice, but you give them a choice based on the best

:48:00.:48:03.

available evidence. You tell them the benefits and the harm in effect.

:48:04.:48:08.

You want to know that and then you should take the information away and

:48:09.:48:11.

discuss it and come to a balanced decision. At the moment there is an

:48:12.:48:16.

overrepresentation of the benefits, many of the studies don't report the

:48:17.:48:22.

harm. PGS, if it did give you that benefit, we would want to know that

:48:23.:48:25.

because we would want to make that available to everyone because it

:48:26.:48:27.

would reduce the number of cycles. It is difficult to get an insight

:48:28.:48:36.

into how challenging it can be. You were doing this for seven years.

:48:37.:48:40.

Give us a flavour of what that time was like. Challenging is the right

:48:41.:48:46.

word. Life changing. Your whole life gets put on hold whilst you're going

:48:47.:48:54.

through it because you just, all you're after is a baby. Your life

:48:55.:48:58.

becomes about babies and putting your life on hold until you get a

:48:59.:49:02.

baby. We're very, very fortunate that we were lucky enough to have

:49:03.:49:07.

Brigitte. You enter this point of desperation and despair and you

:49:08.:49:12.

become open to anybody stacking an extra 1% or 2% in your favour. We

:49:13.:49:18.

were given advice and we had to make calls on things which were unproven

:49:19.:49:21.

and untested and fortunately, we did seem to get it right. How much did

:49:22.:49:28.

you spend on add-ones? The last cycle, when we won, we did an extra

:49:29.:49:31.

five or six I would think at least. Add-ones? Yes. Costing in total?

:49:32.:49:40.

?5,000 or ?6,000. But it was including the pregenetic screening.

:49:41.:49:45.

That was our last resort. We wanted to test our embryos. We went to our

:49:46.:49:49.

clinic and said this is what we want to do. Of course, you would say

:49:50.:49:54.

every penny was worth it? You can't put a price on it. It is a fairly

:49:55.:49:59.

unbiassed opinion. Did you ever feel without naming names or referring to

:50:00.:50:03.

clinics, did you ever feel exploited? Not with our clinic at

:50:04.:50:07.

all. Previous advice, we had spoken to a lot of clinics and we can tell

:50:08.:50:12.

there is an element of being exploited, I think, but we were

:50:13.:50:15.

fortunate with our clinic. Firstly, we were under informed of informed

:50:16.:50:21.

it was very difficult to find the information ourselves. It is such a

:50:22.:50:26.

small niche market. Simon, do you ever exploit couples who come to

:50:27.:50:30.

you? Well, I would certainly hope not. It is very important that we

:50:31.:50:34.

professionally give patients written information and we do that and I

:50:35.:50:38.

agree entirely with the professor, the information that patients are

:50:39.:50:41.

given, it is extremely important. What they didn't do in their study

:50:42.:50:45.

unfortunately was to seek the information directly from clinics,

:50:46.:50:48.

not their websites, on what written information is given to patients to

:50:49.:50:53.

allow them to make an informed consent. We give as much information

:50:54.:51:01.

as is available to the medical specialist as to the patients. It is

:51:02.:51:07.

extremely important. They have hard choices, but they are trying very

:51:08.:51:10.

hard to sift through this information. Juliette, what do you

:51:11.:51:16.

think? Well, I'm not surprised by this, but I'm dismayed by what I

:51:17.:51:20.

have heard about the study. What can you do? Well, the approach that

:51:21.:51:26.

we're take as the regulator of IVF, but not unfortunately a number of

:51:27.:51:29.

these add-ones is to speak to patients like Frankie and Tom and to

:51:30.:51:34.

give them the information... What bit do you regulate and you can't

:51:35.:51:39.

regulate the add-on bit? It depends on the add-on. We have some

:51:40.:51:44.

regulated control over PGS and we expect clinics to give certain

:51:45.:51:48.

information. Why can't you regulate the lot? Because we don't regulate

:51:49.:51:53.

drugs and surgical procedures and we could try to acquire those powers,

:51:54.:51:58.

but I think for us the important thing is to help patients who feel

:51:59.:52:02.

really at sea in all of this and really confused by the conflicting

:52:03.:52:04.

information. There is often, they are not sure who to trust, they

:52:05.:52:08.

phone us and say, "Is there anywhere we can get information that's

:52:09.:52:14.

unbiassed. " The we are the only place you can get that. We're using

:52:15.:52:18.

our scientific advice and we will be look ago the this study to give good

:52:19.:52:22.

information to patients via our website and to appeal to clinics to

:52:23.:52:27.

ability responsibly. Maybe if there is limited evidence you shouldn't be

:52:28.:52:30.

charging for this, maybe it should be part of a trial. If there is good

:52:31.:52:34.

he have, information is great. That's all patients want is good

:52:35.:52:38.

information. There is more on Panorama tonight on

people's opinions of me. To the point where I would be freaked out

:53:19.:53:21.

because I was leaving the house and I didn't have make-up on and I was

:53:22.:53:25.

just realising there was so much that, so much that I had learned and

:53:26.:53:30.

that I think we all learn as specially as women, you know, and

:53:31.:53:34.

girls from the second they were born, from before we even come out,

:53:35.:53:40.

you know, there is all of these images and these expectations and

:53:41.:53:48.

all of these, you know, particular pressures that have made us to think

:53:49.:53:54.

this is what beauty. This is what a successful woman is or this is what

:53:55.:53:58.

a famous woman is. What do you think we as women can do to push against

:53:59.:54:03.

that? What should we be telling our daughters? I'm one just for variety.

:54:04.:54:09.

That's my thing, you know, I just want myself and my daughter, if I

:54:10.:54:15.

had one and my sons, you know, to see a variety of what people look

:54:16.:54:21.

like. Here is what people look like. You know what I mean? We look a vast

:54:22.:54:28.

array of ways and it is really not about make-up or no make-up or

:54:29.:54:32.

anything like that, it is about what makes you comfortable and it is also

:54:33.:54:35.

about being able to explore different versions of what makes you

:54:36.:54:38.

comfortable and seeing what happened. You should be able to

:54:39.:54:42.

without your dad, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your husband,

:54:43.:54:49.

saying, "Stop. Quiet. Just just give me a second to have my whole

:54:50.:54:53.

experience. It is all you, regardless and even for myself, when

:54:54.:54:57.

I want to wear make-up, that's my choice. I can wear make-up and no

:54:58.:55:01.

one should be able to say, "Didn't you say you were never going to. No,

:55:02.:55:09.

that's not what I was saying. Congratulations on your new albumt.

:55:10.:55:16.

Thank you. One track stood out for me, Girl Can't scab. Herself. --

:55:17.:55:34.

Girl Can't Be Herself. My favourite part says when a girl can't be

:55:35.:55:40.

herself no more, I just want to dry. I just want to cry for the world.

:55:41.:55:48.

When a girl can't be herself no more, I just want to cry. I just

:55:49.:55:59.

want to cry for the world. It is so beautiful. It also is quite sad for

:56:00.:56:06.

me. Sad that has to be out there. They message has to be given to

:56:07.:56:11.

girls? Yeah, it is sad actually. It is sad that girls can't be

:56:12.:56:17.

themselves. It's sad that, you know, sad that through this whole election

:56:18.:56:23.

process in America that, you know, because Hillary was so strong and

:56:24.:56:32.

clear and tough, you know, how much unnecessary things were said about

:56:33.:56:36.

her being a woman, you know. It is like we as women, we can be any way.

:56:37.:56:41.

We can be many ways and it is sad when you can't be yourself, you

:56:42.:56:45.

know. Whoever that self is, whatever that is. And that's, you know,

:56:46.:56:51.

that's a problem with girls all over the world, you know and there is so

:56:52.:56:55.

much oppression for women and there is so much oppression for girls and

:56:56.:56:59.

there is so many, you know, unequal opportunities for girls and for

:57:00.:57:04.

women. And it is sad. We've gone through one of the most bitterly

:57:05.:57:10.

fought elections in America's history. You've said in the past

:57:11.:57:14.

about Donald Trump that you don't listen to anything that he says and

:57:15.:57:17.

you said you don't care about what he thinks about women. He's going to

:57:18.:57:23.

be your next president, 45th president of the United States of

:57:24.:57:29.

America. How do you feel about that? I'm disappointed. I'm disappointed

:57:30.:57:39.

that so much hateful rhetoric and sexism and bigotry and racial slurs

:57:40.:57:49.

and intolerance would be rewarded with a presidency.

:57:50.:57:54.
