Collins Word of The Year; Iceland's Banned Xmas Ad; & Why Do 46% of Men Remove Their Body Hair?

It's World Kindness Day & Dolly has a beautiful poem to kick us off, whilst Pandora has a new Spotify suggestion for everyone who went nutty for French Chill. 

46% of men remove their body hair, up from 36% in 2017. Is it the fusion of porn culture and pop culture?

Plus we discuss Collins dictionary's word of the year - 'single-use.' What were the other contenders? Are you a plogger? 

Lastly, Iceland's Christmas ad, banned for being political, after the supermarket re-branded a Greenpeace advert warning against the dangers of palm oil.
