Find out what’s hot in the news this week, what’s happening in West Yorkshire and some ideas to keep you entertained this weekend. 

  • Meet the personal trainer who saved someone’s life when a now client commented “help me” on social media.
  • As one storm has passed another has hit, first Isha and now Jocelyn. 

Hundreds of homes have been without power and roads have been closed due to storms. 

If you are lucky enough to have power, there’s plenty on TV.

  • Are you watching BBC The Apprentice with two Yorkshire contestants? Or BBC Dragon’s Den with Gary Neville?

A Yorkshire lass got the first ever “six” yeses. 

  • What’s your ultimate Fakeaway? Our Danny appears on BBC’s Young MasterChef to judge just that.
  • Where to go for Chinese New Year in Leeds. 
  • Royal Mail could be allowed to end Saturday postal deliveries as part of Ofcom’s review into how the service may need to be reformed.
  • Bradford has the highest level of child poverty and Harrogate the lowest in Yorkshire. 
  • Plus another reminder: You need to send HMRC your tax return. Do it online and pay by 31 Jan to avoid a penalty. 

Here’s a teaser from this week’s news show: 

  • Could you go sober for life? Two men who are recovering addicts are showing how that is possible for those that want to break free from addictive behaviours and negative coping mechanisms. 

Marcus and Jody behind Mean and Clean are living proof that this is possible after drugs and alcohol consumed their lives.
