Overdoses and obesity: our Hollywood wrap-up

From The Panel, 4:55 pm on 27 July 2018

Singer Demi Lovato is recovering from a drug overdose, with friends saying she had been "partying" a lot recently.

We ask whether the use of the word "partying" is wrong to use when it comes to drug taking as it may be normalising the destructive behaviour.

Meanwhile, more than 100,000 people have signed a petition to cancel a new show on Netflix that has been dubbed "fat-shaming". Insatiable follows a teenage girl who is bullied because of her weight, but exacts her revenge when she her jaw is wired shut and see loses weight.

Plus we touch on stories about Tom Cruise and TV show Love Island.
