Parliament has today been recalled to allow MPs from all sides to pay tribute to the Labour MP Jo Cox , who was killed on Thursday. Her Labour colleague Jess Phillips speaks about their friendship and the support that Jo provided to other women in parliament. The actor Kim Cattrall has been a regular voice on Woman's Hour in the last couple of years. She joins Jane to discuss the second series of her critically acclaimed comedy drama, Sensitive Skin. Kim also reflects on the making of her special programme with us that examined her experience of insomnia. We discuss the Sky News decision to film and broadcast edited footage of a six year old girl who underwent FGM in North East Somalia. Mary Berry, the first guest editor of this year's Takeover week, wanted to know whether to take up bee keeping as a hobby. We didn't have time for it in her programme last Monday but today our reporter Caz Graham has some answers for her.
