Vanessa Feltz on BBC Ra­dio 2 (5-6:30 a.m.). The na­tion is di­vided on where The Lady V stands in our col­lec­tive af­fec­tions, but per­son­ally, for me, she’s right up there with Pam Ay­ers, Clau­dia Win­kle­man and Dame Edna.

A Night on the Ori­ent Ex­press by Veron­ica Henry (Orion, £7.99). It’s sev­eral dif­fer­ent sto­ries which col­lide in one ex­tra­or­di­nary night on board the Ori­ent Ex­press. All lux­ury, ro­mance and in­trigue… it’s a bit of a bus­man’s hol­i­day, TBH. Ha! I wish!
