Are 1 and 2 pence coins obsolete? Aside from seaside slot machines, what practical purpose do these serve? They clog up your wallet and weigh down your pockets, so is it time to get rid of them altogether?
Is it time to reinstate Jeremy Corbyn as a Labour MP? The former leader was ousted from the party when he questioned the findings of a report on anti-Semitism. Mr Corbyn's supporters now want to change the party's voting system, which could pave the way for his return.
Should Boris Johnson ditch his green agenda? The Prime Minister vowed to reach 'net zero' by 2050 but it could mean new taxes and rising energy bills, something the Chancellor fears will cripple working class families. But is this one U-turn the government can't afford to make?
"[Mattel] have suddenly reinvented themselves as the pioneers of woke capitalism." The new #Barbie doll based of Vaccinologist Prof Sarah Gilbert was met with skepticism by @MartinDaubney, but @jemmaforte says we need to get more girls interested in STEM subjects.
Have you ever watched the Olympics and thought 'I could do that'? Well, Storm Huntley has been finding out what it takes to become an Olympian with the help of her new coach Iwan Thomas. In her third and final event, Storm hopes to hop into the Long Jump history books.
"The idea that Maggie Thatcher was some kind of pioneering Greta Thunberg is ludicrous." @MartinDaubney & @jemmaforte react to Boris Johnson's controversial joke that Thatcher gave “a big early start” to green energy by closing coalmines.
Is it right to turn role models into toys? Barbie maker Mattel has created a doll figure of the pioneering vaccine scientist Sarah Gilbert to inspire kids to get into science and technology careers. But is it a good idea?
Is it time to ban the unvaccinated from travelling? The Transport Secretary says most countries will permanently require travellers to be double-jabbed before letting them in. Shall we make vaccines part of the holiday checklist and stop people leaving the country without it?
Should rules on mandatory mask-wearing on public transport be brought back? More and more people aren't wearing them, even though the government says they should. The Mayor of London wants police to be able to fine maskless travelers, is he right?
Ever watched the Olympics and thought 'I could do that'? Well, @StormHuntley has been finding out what it takes to become an Olympian with the help of her new coach @Iwanrunner. Today, can she beat @J_Ennis in the 200 metres? #Tokyo2020 | #JeremyVine
And we love having you on! 🥰 Please come back again soon...�twitter.com/StephanieHirst…jb
"Jennifer Anniston occasionally scoffs a lone M&M...I completely destroyed a box of chocolates the other day." @StephanieHirst reacts to the actress' admission that she feels guilty after 'indulging' And nutritionist @Lowri_Turner thinks it's possible to have just one crisp...
Is old age easier for men? @cherryhealey & @Lowri_Turner react to a study that suggests just that. But Lowri says at least women seem to age better when it comes to their appearance...
Do Brits lack fashion sense? David Walliams seems to think so... Speaking on Alan Carr's podcast he said we don't get dressed up in the same way as Italians do. So we got @cherryhealey & @Lowri_Turner to style @theJeremyVine, and here are the results...
"I would give consent for my daughter to have the vaccine because the school year last year was so disrupted" @Lowri_Turner and @cherryhealey will give consent to vaccinate their kids, but they also understand the concerns of some parents, and think education & consent are key.
"I would love go to Lanzarote or Corfu, but it's just too soon and it's too risky" @NinaMyskow thinks it's irresponsible to go on holiday abroad this summer, but @cherryhealey & @Lowri_Turner have both booked family vacations. What do you reckon?
"It was very unsportsmanlike and disrespectful to other people who have won silver" Our panel weren't overly impressed to see Team GB Boxer Ben Whittaker refusing to wear his silver medal, but what do you think? @StormHuntley | @cherryhealey | @Lowri_Turner | @theJeremyVine
Should all over-12s be given the Covid vaccine in school? The government has confirmed that healthy kids aged 16 and 17 will now be offered the jab, but should they go a step further - and offer it to all teens? #JeremyVine
Is it reckless to holiday abroad this summer? Several countries are being added to the green list from Monday, while India turns amber, meaning no more hotel quarantine. Critics fear this will lead to more cases and risk new variants. Should we all stay at home this summer?
Is it wrong for athletes to remove their silver medals? Team GB boxer Ben Whittaker refused to wear his medal after the light heavyweight competition, saying 'you don't win silver, you lose gold'. He's since apologised - but is he entitled to act in the way he did? #JeremyVine
Ever watched the Olympics and thought 'I could do that'? Well this week I found out … I couldn’t! 🤦🏻‍♀️�@Iwanrunnern@JeremyVineOn5On5Ftk

Are British people unfashionable?
David Walliams doesn't rate people's fashion sense in Britain. Speaking on Alan Carr's podcast he shared that he prefers being in Italy where people are "very well dressed". Is he right that Brits are unfashionable - and does Jeremy's choice of outfits prove it? #JeremyVine
Have you ever been watching the Olympics and thought 'I could do that'? Well, @StormHuntley has been finding out what it takes to become an Olympian with the help of her new coach @Iwanrunner. First up, can she beat @RealDeniseLewis in the shot put? #Tokyo2020 | #JeremyVine
A dog owner has claimed that her dog has been a victim of 'dog racism' after it was seized because it looked like one of banned dangerous dog breeds. @OwenJones84 says to compare it to racism is ludicrous and offensive. #JeremyVine
"It's absolute financial Darwinism" Fashion designers Balenciaga have unveiled a hoody which has multiple holes in it - and it'll leave a hole in your pocket too, costing £1,350. @StormHuntley's not a fan. @OwenJones84 | @thecarolemalone | #JeremyVine
"This is spite and divisiveness on the part of the EU" British holidaymakers could be charged for entering the EU under new plans for a visa scheme. Is it to be expected because of Brexit or is it unfair? @OwenJones84 | @thecarolemalone | #JeremyVine
Should HS2 be scrapped? The budget has doubled and the project is taking longer and longer to complete - but could the project still be worth it? @OwenJones84 thinks there will be a lot of benefits of HS2, but @thecarolemalone says too much money has been sunk into it.
"If you can't take the pressure then maybe professional sport is not for you" Olympic champion @ChristieLinford says olympians and top sports stars have to be able to cope mentally in high-pressure situations if they want to compete. @OwenJones84 | @thecarolemalone |#JeremyVine
"I have experience of a mental health issue, I know what it's like to be rock bottom... it's not something you get over in a day" @thecarolemalone shares her own experience with mental health and questions how quickly Simone Biles was able to return to compete. #JeremyVine
"The current situation creates a stigma which makes it harder to get people the support they need" @rich_hurley from the BMJ agrees with @OwenJones84 and says the current drugs policy doesn't do enough to prevent deaths and help drug users. @thecarolemalone | #JeremyVine
"Since the 'war on drugs' started, far more people use drugs than did at the beginning..." @OwenJones84 says drug use should be decriminalised and dealt with as a public health issue, not as a criminal offence. @thecarolemalone | #JeremyVine
"It's like arguing against condoms because they're only 97% effective" All children over the age of 16 may be offered a Covid jab following updated advice from the JCVI. @OwenJones84 and @thecarolemalone both think it's a good idea to get more people vaccinated. #JeremyVine
Is it too late to scrap HS2? A recent report has concluded building the high speed rail link from London to Birmingham will emit the same, if not more, carbon emissions than it will save. So is it too late to scrap the scheme?
Is it wrong to criticise athletes over mental health? Many Olympic competitors have said they want to take a short break from sports to prioritise their mental wellbeing after the games. But they've all faced criticism over their decision. So is it wrong to criticise them?
Should we legalise drugs to prevent deaths? New statistics show last year, in England and Wales, drugs-related deaths were at their highest level. Charities are calling for recreational drugs to be decriminalised in hope it will save lives. But what do you think? Let us know.
Coming up on tomorrow's #JeremyVine: We'll be joined in the studio by @OwenJones84 and @thecarolemalone to discuss the biggest stories of the day. Plus - how hard is it to become an Olympian? We find out how @StormHuntley got on when @Iwanrunner put her through her paces.
A great show today with lots to talk about. Thank you to @Femi_Sorry. @IainDale and Anne Diamond for joining us and to our callers for getting in touch. @theJeremyVine and @StormHuntley are back tomorrow. #JeremyVine
Would you move to a remote Scottish island for £50,000? The Scottish government is willing to spend £5m on giving grants to people to encourage them to move to remote communities to tackle depopulation. @StormHuntley | @IainDale | #JeremyVine
Jack Grealish's partner Sasha Attwood has spoken publicly about receiving "200 death threats a day" from young girls online. @StormHuntley says the police need to do more to crack down on trolling like this. @IainDale | @Femi_Sorry | #JeremyVine
"If the proverbial bus ran Boris over today, Rishi would be the next Prime Minister - I have no doubt about it" Could Rishi Sunak replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister? @IainDale believes so. @Femi_Sorry | #JeremyVine
"The furlough scheme has been an amazing success... it should come to an end, but there are industries which will be hugely affected still" Should the Government extend the furlough scheme or is it time to end it? @IainDale | @Femi_Sorry | #JeremyVine
"If we dropped every restriction we'd open the country up to every infection across the world" @Femi_Sorry has a lot of concerns about "the all or nothing" attitude towards lifting restrictions on travel, he says it would be irresponsible to do it now. @IainDale | #JeremyVine
"It just shows the ridiculousness of this whole situation" Travel editor @lisaminot says "nobody understands" why the Government is putting certain countries on/off travel watch lists - she says clarity is needed for the travel industry. #JeremyVine
"If you drop masks you make it more likely that getting pinged is because of a genuine infection - getting rid of both at the same time doesn't seem smart" @Femi_Sorry is cautious about the Government's plan to tweak the NHS Covid app so that it 'pings' less people. #JeremyVine
Training with @Iwanrunner yesterday for @JeremyVineOn5 and today my whole body hurts! Who knew Olympians trained so hard? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻AkgY

Should all schoolchildren learn Latin? The government's expanding teaching to more state schools, to combat its reputation as an elitist subject for posh people - but do our kids really need to learn a dead language? #JeremyVine
Is the chancellor right to end the furlough scheme at the end of  September? He's been warned a quarter of a million jobs are at risk - but has enough money been spent, and is it now time to pull the plug? #JeremyVine
Is it time to scrap all Covid travel restrictions to save summer holidays? The government's planning to introduce a new amber watchlist this week which could mean your holiday destination suddenly turns red. But are we wasting the advantage of high vaccinations rates?
