News The home of the TV weatherman has been raided by police as part of an investigation into historic sexual abuse

Former This Morning weather presenter faces claims he sexually assaulted boys at a grammar school where he taught

Unsurprisingly, for a live show that has to fill a two-hour timeslot five days a week, there have been plenty of toe-curling moments

The show must go on, and on... They said it wouldn't last, but ITV's 'This Morning' is celebrating 25 years on the air

For many, its combination of showbiz news, fashion advice and salacious real-life stories are the epitome of daytime-television banality. But on Thursday, despite critics who said it wouldn't last two months, This Morning will celebrate 25 years on air.

One minute with: Richard Madeley, TV presenter

Where are you now and what can you see?

The Blagger's Guide To...The Richard and Judy Book Club

If you want to get ahead, get in the club

The odd couple: Richard and Judy talk sex tips, spag bol and non-stop tweets

The first thing I hear when I arrive at a private club in London to meet Richard and Judy is Richard saying excitedly: "It looks as if he is doing a poo!", to which Judy responds, as you would hope she would respond, this being Richard and Judy, by flicking her eyes heavenwards and saying: "Richard!", so I say it too. "Richard!" I say, if only out of the sense that unless all exasperated, middle-aged women stick together and flick their eyes heavenwards, the Richards of this world would run riot and then we'd all be in trouble. They'd be jumping out from behind the aisles in the supermarket, broadcasting details of your hormonal ups and downs and menstrual quirks and offering conception advice along the lines of: "When we were trying to conceive, I would douse my balls in icy water before intercourse". So I say: "Richard!" and flicker my eyes heavenwards, even though I have no idea why we are Richard!-ing today. Heavens, if you're given the opportunity to do a Richard! you just run with it, surely? How many people have the opportunity in their lifetime? Still, why are we Richard!-ing?
