Episode 126 of 721 episodes

Is secretly eating a simple guilty pleasure or a food disorder? We look at how finishing the last chocolate bar covertly might be a sign of stress. Also on the programme - to celebrate the BBC's Democracy Day we talk to the descendants of Suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst about modern political apathy, the importance of their family heritage and the forthcoming Suffragette film. Plus, we find out what it is like to become unexpectedly pregnant, and Julie Hesmondhalgh talks to us about her acting career.
