good morning. welcome to breakfast with charlie stayt and mega munchetty. our headlines today: the number missing in california's deadliest wildfire rises again. more than 1,000 are unaccounted for and 71 people are confirmed to have died. as theresa may tries to rally support for her brexit deal, five senior ministers are trying to persuade her to change it. the totaliser! yes! another record—breaking yearfor children in need — the appeal‘s raised more than one billion pounds since it
began almost a0 years ago. in sport, can england win their first overseas test match for two years? they've taken a couple of brilliant catches this morning, but the second test against sri lanka remains finely balanced. good morning. after a great start to the weekend, things are set to turn much brighter, but next week it does turn colder. i will have all the details next. good morning. it's saturday the 17th november. our top story: the number of people missing in california's wildfires has now risen to more than 1,000. 71 people are known to have died. president trump will visit the state later today. 0ur correspondent dave lee has sent this report from what is now the devastated town of paradise. this is the first step in a very long process. a crew of firefighters lifts away large debris and makes sure the area is safe. soon, a second team of cadaver dogs will sweep the area. if they find remains,
the coroner's office will arrive. it takes time, even with the more than 400 specialists now on the ground in paradise, the town worst hit by this fire. progress seems to be going backwards. each day we hear about several confirmed deaths, but with it comes news that there are a growing number still unaccounted for. as of tonight, the list that we will be releasing, the current list of unaccounted for individuals stands at 1,011, which is an increase from yesterday of 380. the majority of those on that unaccounted for list are in their 70s, 80s and 905. some of them may have lived in a place like this, this mobile home park used to be known as the enchanted forest, but is now one of the focus of the enormous search operation. the impact from these fires is being felt across the state of california, more than 100 miles away in san fransicso, schools and businesses were closed
down due to terrible air quality, currently measured as being the worst anywhere in the world. on saturday, it's expected that president trump will pay a visit to teams fighting these fires and maybe meet some of those who have been evacuated. a community determined to get back on its feet. i think we will come back bigger and better. right now they have got paradise strong, ridge strong and that is what we are. and i know there is a lot of people ready to come back, let's get this done. let's make paradise again. dave lee, bbc news, in paradise. after a turbulant week, theresa may continues to try and sell her brexit deal to her party grassroots and the wider public. her position was bolstered yesterday with the resturn to the front bench of amber rudd as work and pensions secretary, and the appointment of a new — if lesser known — brexit secretary,
stephen barclay. the bbc understands that five of the prime minister's leave—supporting cabinet ministers are considering pressing for changes to the deal which they think are "winnable and supportable." mrs may continues to insist her plan, agreed with eu negotiators, will deliver a brexit that works in the national interest. let's speak to our political correspondent, susana mendonca, who's in westminster for us this morning. and very good morning to you. just pick up on some of those stories which are on the front pages this morning. this group of five and the outstanding question of the possible leadership contest. yes, so this group of five, we understand that this includes andrea leadsom, liam fox, penny morden, and liam fox. there was regulation that some of them would have resigned but they have decided to stick with theresa may and they are staying in the cabinet, but what we understand as they want to have some changes to they want to have some changes to the deal that has been done with the european union. of course, the
european union. of course, the european union. of course, the european union has indicated that it doesn't want to change anything in that deal. it is not in the market for that so difficult to see how thatis for that so difficult to see how that is going to happen. what we understand as one of the issues is around andrea leadsom perhaps thinking that there needs to be some change to the irish border issue of whether or not technology can be used in order to solve that issue. now, difficult to see, as i say, whether or not those changes gradually be permitted, and if they can't implement it, could we see more resignations? at the same time, we have obviously got backbench tory mps potentially putting in letters. they get enough of them, a8, then there could be a vote of no—confidence in theresa may, so a very turbulent time ahead, no doubt. thanks very much. one of britain's biggest newspaper groups, johnston press, is going into administration. the company prints more than 200 local and regional titles, including "the scotsman" and "the yorkshire post", as well as the 'i'. it's blamed changes to the way facebook and google display stories, which has led to a fall in advertising. the move into administration is part
of a rescue plan to keep the papers in circulation. after weeks of accusations and counter—claims, the us media is reporting that the cia has concluded that saudi crown prince, mohammed bin salman, ordered the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi. mr khashoggi was killed in the saudi consulate in istanbul last month, his body has not been found. saudi arabia has called the claim false. the argentine navy says it has found the wreckage of a submarine that disappeared a year ago with aa crewman on board. the vessel was spotted by a drone on the seabed, at a depth of 800 metres. it was last heard from in november last year, when it reported an electrical fault in the south atlantic ocean. hm revenue and customs is warning that university students are being bombarded with fake tax refund emails, in a bid to steal their banking and personal details. thousands of reports have been received in the past few weeks. fraudsters are using email addresses that appear to be from a genuine university. officials say emails, texts or voicemails would never be used to inform a customer of a refund. the bbc‘s annual children
in need appeal has raised a record amount, of more than £50 million. the annual fundraiser has now raised more than a billion pounds since it began in 1980. the charity supports more than 2,000 projects which help disadvantaged children across the uk. last night's programme saw boyzone take to the strictly dance floor. and doing it really pretty well, i'd say. what do i know? enough to see it doing well. it is seven minutes past nine. the sport and the weather coming upfor past nine. the sport and the weather coming up for you shortly. the last few days in politics have seen resignations, promotions and a prime minister fighting for her future. so what do voters make of it? breakfast‘s jayne mccubbin has been to liverpool airport, to speak to passengers coming and going from the uk. they're arriving back home from
across europe to news of how we are all to leave. did you have a nice trip? lovely, thank you. when was the last time you have read a paper? seven days ago. you have missed a lot. what have i missed? that says it all. 0ut means out. we managed all those years without them. why should we bother about them now? the deal to say goodbye really doesn't feel like a good buy at all and there are are some for whom the withdrawal agreement is plain confusing. brexit. are we in our rb out? this airport was part built with eu cash investment which helped make this city a remain city, and some are furious about how things have turned out. she doesn't know what she's doing. the likes of cameron. where is he? absolute
shambles from start to finish. are you glad to be leaving the country? yes, we are. first—class's coming up. plenty more per sec or coming up for those hopping over to ireland for those hopping over to ireland for the rugby. how do you think the negotiations have gone? you can tell by the look on my face. i think it is appalling that we have to put up with it. it is awful. is a rugby is one of the unique things. it has never been the north against the south. it is all of ireland. frictionless borders also mattered to this woman who has lived here for seven yea rs, to this woman who has lived here for seven years, today enjoying a reunion with her family from romania. are you worried for you being here? know. i have been here long enough, so i am not worried. what are you worried about? long enough, so i am not worried. what are you worried about7m long enough, so i am not worried. what are you worried about? is my family going to be able to visit me? are they going to need a visa? am i going to need a visa to travel places? people don't know. there is plenty of turbulence ahead. most
people just want clarity on the final brexit destination. joining us now from his constituency of rutland and melton is the conservative mp sir alan duncan, who's remaining loyal to the prime minister. thank you very much for talking to us thank you very much for talking to us this morning, sir alan duncan. let me ask you straight, do you think there will be a challenge to theresa may's leadership by the end of next week? it doesn't look as certain as it did perhaps yesterday. we have made it to the weekend and i hope that every colleague, every mp who has gone back to their constituency, will just who has gone back to their constituency, willjust stop and reflect a nd constituency, willjust stop and reflect and realise that pushing for a leadership challenge will only be damaging. it is not going to achieve anything. it is not going to get the country a better deal than the one theresa may has negotiated. and all it is likely to do is create chaos. and possibly sort of break the government, break the party, and leave the country in great disarray and our loyalty above all has to be
to the country, so stop, think, and step back from the brink, is what i would urge my mp colleagues to do. and whether that is effective we will see next week. you say it is not going to achieve anything by challenging her and a better deal is not there to be sought, but there are five key members in the party who believe that there is a better deal to be sought. not even the standing of the opposition from the other parties as well. so there isn't that faith, these reassuring words, this coming nature that comes across from you to say, calm down, have a think. it's not going to work, is it? i hope my urge for calm will have some effect. but you mention five cabinet colleagues, but just think through the logic of this. it is not what they demand of theresa may that's going to make a difference. it's what we the uk can negotiate with the eu that makes a difference. we have been doing that for two years now, and to think that just because some cabinet ministers
make demands of the prime minister that the details are going to change is, i think, fantasy. and the reality of life is that we have a choice, which is to backless, which i think everybody should, because if we don't, we will probably go over the cliff edge of having no at all and leaving without a deal as the alternative. now, ithink and leaving without a deal as the alternative. now, i think that would be very damaging. it may well be that some of those who are threatening to bring down the prime minister really want that. well, if they do, although none of them as levers ever campaigned for it. they didn't even say it was a possibility or describe what it might entail, but that is what they want, then let them please have the honesty to say so, so we know what the real debate is to remember and the prime minister, rather thanjust is to remember and the prime minister, rather than just having them coming up on her —— ganging up on her and trying to get rid of, which i think would be an act of absolute folly. rather than ganging
up absolute folly. rather than ganging up on her, isn't it thejob of absolute folly. rather than ganging up on her, isn't it the job of the cabinet to provide some balance and perspective to the prime minister, to be her eyes and ears? isn't that what they are doing, reflecting the frustration about steel?|j what they are doing, reflecting the frustration about steel? i think that's a prolific question because democracy is not blind obedience. everyone has to exercise judgment and act on their conscience. but i think the facts here are absolutely clear. and it's not as if the prime minister is there with an alternative that she could deliver, which somehow she is refusing to do. the fact is there is no alternative which she could deliver. and therefore whether it be a cabinet minister or a member of parliament wagging theirfingers minister or a member of parliament wagging their fingers and shouting and saying she must do this or that is futile because there are not alternatives to the deal that she has got. and i think, instead of being, as you put it, the eyes and ea rs being, as you put it, the eyes and ears and the critics or whatever, they should rally round and support
because i think that is what is in the national interest and the national interest here is notjust our constituency associations, it is not just our own area, our constituency associations, it is notjust our own area, it is the whole country's interest, every mp has to bear in mind at this very critical stage. i mean, someone said to me during the week, you have seen this all before. and i had to stop and think actually, no, i hadn't. it has not been like this before. and we have got to stop and realise the gravity of the historic moment in which we are exercising our judgment. which makes this all the more important to have dissenting voices and to have that challenge because at the moment, and i would because at the moment, and i would be very interested if you would deny this is the case, it really doesn't look as if this is going to get through parliament. so these five cabinet members and the others in opposition could be seen as saying, ta ke opposition could be seen as saying, take a look. this is not going to get through. so if you don't change this now, we have lost anyway. we have failed. well, i think it was
back to the issue of whether it is changeable in the way that you imply. but what it also does is suggest that the labour party have to look at the national interest, and frankly the vast majority of the labour party... i mean, a very high percentage would far prefer this deal done no deal at all. which may be exactly the alternative which is looming. and so instead of looking at party advantage of the labour benches, i would urge labour mps to realise that they must act on the national interest, and therefore i hope they will support the deal and then the arithmetic that you have, i think quite accurately, describe, would in fact come together.m think quite accurately, describe, would in fact come together. it is interesting. you have got the likes of michael gove on the cabinet opening not supporting this deal. if theresa may wants to budget through, isn't it time now, then, for her to say, right, those who are with me and staying with me, i am going to be shovelling nature i have a strong tea m be shovelling nature i have a strong team to bridge the through, because i think this is the best deal we are
going to get. i don't think life politics is quite as simple as and obviously she has had cabinet resignations. cabinet, if someone is in it, they support what is happening. that is what collectivist possibility is all about. but they don't, do they? they don't support. well, they will vote with the government as long as they are in cabinet, iam government as long as they are in cabinet, i am sure. and government as long as they are in cabinet, iam sure. and i government as long as they are in cabinet, i am sure. and i think there is too muchjostling cabinet, i am sure. and i think there is too much jostling and cabinet, i am sure. and i think there is too muchjostling and look into the future and anyone that thinks that on the back of this they can serve their own ambitions i think would end up realising that their ambitions will not amount to very much if you have destroyed and broken the very party of which you area broken the very party of which you are a part. ijust want to be clear, one final point. you have said those who don't support her and their opening not supporting her now, you think they will vote whether in the government for this deal to go through, regardless. government for this deal to go
through, regardlesslj government for this deal to go through, regardless. ithink anyone can see... if you don't need expert voices to point this out, that there is dissent and there are some people in the party who will not vote for the deal, certainly at the moment, and some who want to have a vote of confidence against the prime minister as leader of the party. well, they were bragging yesterday that the numbers were there. well, they are not there today and any of those even who have signed a letter saying that there should be a leadership contest, i hope they will suffice it —— hope that they will sit down with the constituency members and work out whether this is to the advantage of the party on whether it is going to achieve anything other than negative consequences. sir alan duncan, mp for rutland and melton, thank you for rutland and melton, thank you for talking to us this morning. the time is 17 minutes past nine. that means we can take a look at the weather. matt has news of change is
afoot. good morning to you. it is pretty great out there at the moment but there will be some big changes today because while most have sky is looking like this with fog and drizzle, we have already got sunshine for some and it is the clear skies that you see here above the rooftops in essex which will be moving across most parts of the uk if not today then certainly by tomorrow morning. those clearer skies, actually marching northwards through the day and eastwards and you will still have some cloud and drizzle this morning. northern ireland will struggle to brighten up, as will some parts of scotland. down towards the south—west, if you ta ke down towards the south—west, if you take a look at the finer detail into this afternoon, there still could be some cloud lingering across the southern coast of devon, west cornwall, and in towards the isles of scilly. a bit of a breeze blowing which will make it feel cooler than you have been used to over the past few days. in snowdonia and east of the peak district, there will be some low cloud. northern ireland will struggle to break the cloud completely. sudden, eastern parts of the grampians towards 0rkney and
shetland, the cloud will remain. 9-10dc shetland, the cloud will remain. 9—10dc here. in the highlands, 30-1adc will 9—10dc here. in the highlands, 30—1adc will be the high. in too tight, clear skies for most. the cloud will come and go for most. with clear skies around, widespread frost across europe which is of note. the green on the uk shows that it will not be a case of temperatures dropping below freezing but it will get close enough for some frost on cars and grass for some frost on cars and grass for some of you into tomorrow morning. soa some of you into tomorrow morning. so a slightly colder start than we have been used to over the past few days. but it will be a cracking sunday. sunshine from dawn to dusk for many. some cloud across parts of eastern scotland but for most uninterrupted blue skies and temperatures still in double figures. 10—13dc, but starting to drop away and it will drop by the into next week. blues, the cold air across the rest of europe coming towards us as high pressure works its way northwards. easterly wind on monday. the return of cloud across much of the uk. best of the cloud brea ks much of the uk. best of the cloud breaks in the west. one or two sunny
spells further east but we will start is the temperatures drop back into single figures for many. down at around 7— and celsius for england and wales. and it will get colder still into tuesday. some travellers taking us into tuesday, mainly rain showers. but over higher grounds even as far south as southern england and south wales we could see a little bit obsolete or wet snow mixed in. 6—7dc. add on the effect of that wind and it will feel significantly cooler. perhaps closer to freezing, which will be a big shock can to what we have had over the past couple of weeks. a real shock. get the thermals out. exactly. all right, thanks very much. the time now is 20 minutes past nine. over the last few days, we've brought you stories from the devastating wildfires in california. more than 70 people have died, and a thousand are missing. the fire has also forced more than a quarter of a million people to move from their homes,
including the four—time 0lympic champion, michaeljohnson, who lives in malibu. he's been talking to breakfast about his shock at what's happened. i was in new york last week visiting my son and on my way back found that the fires are here in california that they had raged out of control. and where my home is in malibu, we had been evacuated, we were evacuated since last friday. but i am now back in my home. i got back tuesday night. and everything is fine, for me, fortunately. but it is very unfortunate, a lot of people have lost their homes. we have got fires all up and down california and many people have lost their lives up in the northern california wildfires. it is a very, very difficult situation. and my heart goes out to all of those who have lost their lives, who have been lost, as well as property. it is a very difficult situation. we will have more of this in california. it is a very unfortunate situation.
you can watch the full interview with michaeljohnson on monday, when he also talks to us about his recovery from a recent stroke. we had a lot of time to talk to him. it should be interesting. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. time now for a look at the newspapers. guardian film critic peter bradshaw is here to tell us what's caught his eye. your eye has been drawn to an image. at times like this, the papers love the idea of plotting and politicians going to restaurants and having meals and plotting over these meals all the way from the original 80s house of cards through to tony blair through to today. and on the front page of the daily miller, —— daily
mirror, they seem to have this, which was presumably last night or the night before and it is presumably in a swanky london restau ra nt. presumably in a swanky london restaurant. boris, for it is he, his dad stanley, and nigel farage has come out of the woodwork, count dracula. it is not quite clear whether they were having dinner together or if nigel was at an adjoining table and sort of stopped by for a brandy after his dinner or something like that. but the seems to have snapped them having the sort of co nfa b to have snapped them having the sort of confab and there is something slightly kind of chilling about it, that these decisions are being made around these restaurants. the sun has something to say... you are sticking with the food he was. the gang of five, as the telegraph calls them, the brexiteer plotters or agitators or insurgent in cabinet are having pizza club dinners i
think around that michael gove's and they are having the pizza club and this has meant that the sun has gone all out for it absurd collection of ridiculous plans. may is doing crossed it enough and there is dough deal. it wouldn't be a political story without the sun doing a political plan. there is a fascination with the notion of plotting and some people say it is just talking. plotting makes it sound sinister. and then that notion of where they do it. and that builds a story and makes it possibly more interesting. it does make it more interesting. it does make it more interesting and there is a reason for it because people complain quite naturally that these places, off the record places, where the real deals get made and they are not people who socialise generally. they're not even be bothered necessarily like each other very much so they can't claim that these little confab is... we are hearing a lot from people who watch this programme 's frustration with the notion of the chattering
classes, the politicians, including ours, including the media and reporters and whatever, how detached we are. and that notion of people meeting and that kind of thing, it all feels like... gallagher tends to be the brexiteers who say the metropolitan elite and they are the most elite people of all. they have their own west london leaked. it is quite absurd. adding one of the things that has come out is how absurd this is. this is useful, actually. i just spotted absurd this is. this is useful, actually. ijust spotted this. what happens next? we need the papers and the media to give guidance as to how it works. this is were the tabloids actually trumped the broadsheets because they are saying, we will speu because they are saying, we will spell it out for you in small words and one syllable, because we all need it. absolutely. your story about a tribute to a screenwriter. william goldman. it is a kind of mean that people might think they know. he was legendary and road bridge cassidy and the sundance kid, all the president's men, the
princess bride, which some people think it is sort of masterpiece. there is an obituary by, if i may say so, myself, in the guardian today. modesty forbids, of course. but he became a legend in his own lifetime, not merely for his brilliant film scripts and novels, but for his how—to scriptwriting memoir cold adventures in the screen trade which become famous for a maxim which was, "nobody knows anything." which was to listen to producers and agents who say that such and such a formula will always work. he said it won't work. everything is chaos. and that maxim has become a legend in politics and in sports and npr. i have described it as —— have described him as a pessimist but i think it is positive because it means that individual talent will bow out in the end. don't listen to people saying that
you have to write to a foreigner because you don't. talking of tips. another great writer, jonathan franzen, who is a legendary highbrow writer, he has issued his own tips, his own top tips which have infuriated everybody all over the world because he says that one of his rules is that if you have an internet connection in your workplace, it is very, very unlikely indeed you will be producing anything that is any good at all. and it is one of those things that has enraged people because most writers, if they are honest, have the internet on their... i do it myself. i am supposed to be writing a piece of genius and then i find myself clicking onto youtube and i am watching hilarious cat videos. and it is surprising how many hours you can burn up. and you have done nothing at the end of the day. this isa nothing at the end of the day. this is a comedian and actor pattern
oswald, who has published his own west. have a nice plant.|j oswald, who has published his own west. have a nice plant. i think a cactus might work, or a little bonsai tree. a great big plant shedding everywhere i think might be a bit... something for the director to think about on the bbc breakfast that. what we think about that? guillamon i think that would be good. increase the oxygen in here. always lovely to doctor u. guillamon thank you. this is breakfast. we're on bbc one until ten o'clock this morning, when michel roux junior takes over in the saturday kitchen. and that is where we cross over to. we can almost smell the food. cooking lots of delicious food this morning. already had a half decent brea kfast, morning. already had a half decent breakfast, i tell you. morning. already had a half decent breakfast, itell you. our guest todayis breakfast, itell you. our guest today is the history guide. it is the brilliant dan snow. great to have you here. we will talk about

coming up before ten we'll get the weather from matt. but first a summary of this morning's main news. the number of people missing in california's devastating wildfires has now risen to more than a thousand. 71 people are known to have died. president trump will visit the state later today. officials say they don't expect to fully contain the blaze until the end of the month. after a turbulent week theresa may is continuing to try to sell her brexit deal to her party's grassroots and the wider public. but the bbc understands that five of the prime minister's leave—supporting cabinet ministers are considering pressing for changes to the deal. mrs may's supporters insist that a possible vote of no—confidence, triggered by backbench mps, would be damaging to the govenment and the country. pushing for a leadership challenge
will only be damaging. it is not going to achieve anything, it will not get a better deal than the one theresa may has negotiated. it is only likely to create chaos and possibly break the government and leave the country in disarray. our loyalty a bove leave the country in disarray. our loyalty above or has got to be to the country. so stop and think a step back from the brink is what i would urge my mp colleagues to do. we'll be speaking with conservative mp mark francois in a few moments — he's submitted a letter of no confidence in theresa may's leadership. the cia believes that saudi crown prince mohammed bin salman ordered the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi, according to us media reports. mr khashoggi was killed in the saudi consulate in istanbul last month, his body has not been found. saudi arabia has called the claim false. one of britain's biggest newspaper groups, johnston press,
is going into administration. the company prints more than 200 local and regional titles, including "the scotsman" and "the yorkshire post", as well as the 'i'. it's blamed changes to the way facebook and google display stories, which has led to a fall in advertising. the move into administration is part of a rescue plan to keep the papers in circulation. the argentine navy says it has spotted the wreckage of a submarine that disappeared a year ago with aa crewman on board. the vessel was found by a drone on the seabed, at a depth of 800 metres. it was last heard from in november last year, when it reported an electrical fault in the south atlantic ocean. hm revenue and customs is warning that university students are being bombarded with fake tax refund emails, in a bid to steal their banking and personal details. thousands of reports have been received in the past few weeks. fraudsters are using email addresses that appear to be from a genuine university. officials say emails, texts or voicemails would never be used to inform a customer of a refund.
a man is suing british airways after claiming that he was squashed next to an obese passenger during a 13—hour flight. stephen huw prosser says he suffered a pelvic injury and nerve damage in his neck, on the journey from bangkok to london. he's claiming damages and loss of earnings. british airways is contesting the case and the hearing continues. those are the main stories this morning. now all the sport and a great day of by now all the sport and a great day of rugby internationals coming up but we start with the cricket. it is getting a bit nervy right now. it was going well for england. it was all going great guns. but should anchor only need 82 runs to win. —— sri lanka.
there's a saying in cricket — that 'catches win matches'. and england have had a couple of crackers this morning. they've set sri lanka 301 to win in kandy, and if you thought this catch from keatonjennings was good, there was an even better one. jennings volleying the ball to wicketkeeper ben folkes. sri lanka currently 219 for 5. they just need 82 theyjust need 82 runs. england's women are through to the semi finals at the world t20. anya shrubsole starred with the ball — blowing away the south african tail with a hattrick — three wickets in three balls. england knocked off the 86 runs they needed to win with 6 overs to spare. wales missed out on promotion from their nations league group after losing 2—1 to denmark last night in cardiff. gareth bale was back for wales but they missed chances and were punished when denmark scored before the break. and they went further clear late
on when martin braithwaite smashed in a second. bale got one back but it was too little, too late. we'll see the champions of the northern hemisphere against the champions of the southern hemisphere later in dublin as ireland take on new zealand. that's the highlight of another packed day of action in the autumn internationals as patrick gearey reports. the psychology of the haka is to beat you before you begin, to make battles seem futile. when faced with the all blacks, ireland would recognise the feeling. new zealand's unbeaten run over the irish lasted for 28 games over 111 years, through bruised bodies and broken hearts. until one day in chicago that is forever frozen in ireland's sporting history. since that a0—29 victory two years ago, the dynamic has changed. for this irish team, beating new zealand isn't an impossible leap, but a necessary step towards their aim — the world cup.
it's always an achievement to beat the all blacks, that is why we limit ourselves to just every 115 years. it is formidable and would be a huge feather in these players cap if they could topple them on saturday. if ireland are the northern hemisphere's smash hit, scotland are perhaps this yea r‘s breakthrough act. they beat england in the six nations and looked fluent against the fijians last saturday. there are six changes for a very different match against the hulking south africans and whatever happens saturday, sunday is going to hurt. i imagine you ask any coach in world rugby who is the team that provides the biggest challenge in the game physically with your forwards, it will be south africa. they select the biggest, strongest men they can find. i just feel that south africa now are in the top two or three teams in the world in how they played and how they played against the best teams in the world.
wales will be full of confidence after beating australia last weekend, but only one of that team will start the game against tonga, the welsh have the springboks a week later. england meanwhile, have made 11 changes to the side which thought they had beaten new zealand, only to have a try disallowed. they face japan, the country of eddie jones' heritage and the team he used to be in charge of. but international rugby allows little room for sentiment, jones says he wants england to physically "smash" them. patrick gearey, bbc news. one man not involved in the internationals is danny cipriani. he's just got back from a three week suspension and was on form as his club gloucester beat leicester last night. in a lively match the best of the tries was saved until last when ollie thorley ran the length of the pitch to score under the posts to help his side win 36—13. gloucester are now third. there's been a bit of a row in the world of darts about...breaking wind.
at the grand slam of darts yesterday, both gary anderson and wesley harms accused each other of letting rip during their match. harms lost — and blamed anderson's bowels for his poor performance. anderson said it was "a thousand and ten percent" not him. whoever smelt it dealt it. that is the rule. i cannot imagine that is the rule. i cannot imagine that is the first time but that has arisen in the world of darts! it must be pretty regular. what was the rub, so to speak, that smell or the noise? it was the smell. harms said it would take him two weeks to get the
smell out of his nose. we need to stop talking about that! thanks for that. that two brexit. theresa may is using the weekend to try and win support for her brexit plan. she'll need to win over mps within her own party — some have submitted letters hoping to trigger a vote of no confidence in her leadership. one of those is mark francois, who joins us from westminster. good morning and thank you for joining us. can you just go through, we are in the business of straight talking now so you have been one of those bold and honest enough to say that you have sent in your letter? yes and i was old and honest enough to publish my letter so that anyone can understand my reasoning. so my
constituents could understand my reasoning and white i have done it. you would never do this lightly against your prime minister. and within the group, how many people, do you know how many people have sentin do you know how many people have sent in letters of no—confidence? do you know how many people have sent in letters of no—confidence ?|j really do not know. the only person that knows that is so graham brady. and someone said earlier he does not even tell his wife. so here's the anyone who knows but one i can tell you is that it went up by one yesterday. i have spoken to several collea g u es yesterday. i have spoken to several colleagues who have put in letters yesterday. at the end of the day most colleagues are now back in their constituencies. i imagine that they will consult with their local party workers and their association members. they will speak to their loved ones and away what to do and probably make up their mind sometime
sunday night. they will come back to westminster on monday and i did put ina westminster on monday and i did put in a letter or not. we spoke to alan duncan assured time ago. he said clearly what you're doing will only do damage and will not get a better deal. it will break the party and for the wider public he says it will wa ke for the wider public he says it will wake the country. what game are you playing? i have known alan for years and always respect to him but i respectfully disagree with him. why would we do this, a bunch of normally loyal tory mps rise up like this and the reason is that the brexit deal but the prime minister is now wedded to will never passed through the house of commons. every mp knows the mathematics and i went through it in the chamber the other day with her in the house. everyone knows it will never get through. and
also heard chequers plan means that we do not leave the eu. we end up ourfriend and we do not leave the eu. we end up our friend and half out and that is even worse than what we have now. the prime minister is so wedded to the chequers agreement that she will not change. for you to have such a detailed critique of the deal, you must have read the whole thing?” have got the 585 page document on my desk. i have looked through it but i need to read it in more detail tomorrow. forgive me, i'm not trying tomorrow. forgive me, i'm not trying to catch you out but one of the things that frustrates people, listening to politicians like you are if you want to talk to people about what the deal is and whether it matters and how it will work in practice, they have a right to expect you to have read it. forgive
me, i read a detailed analysis of it conducted by skilled experts, a lawyer who is expert in european law. i did the lisbon treaty in 2008 for the conservative party so i do know a bit about european law. in my 3—page letter published on my website i have explained in detail what is wrong with the chequers plan. so for one it would leave us ina plan. so for one it would leave us in a customs union which means we cannot do international trade deals and worse than that we could only leave the customs union if the eu allows us to leave. so we would no longer be in control. who do you wa nt to longer be in control. who do you want to lead the party? let's take it one thing at a time. what my collea g u es it one thing at a time. what my colleagues have to decide, every... do you want to reason made to carry
on leading the party? of course i do not because otherwise why would i have submitted this letter of note confidence. who would you like in her place? that would be up to my parliamentary colleagues. i have not decided to buy would vote for. let me speak plainly, i had not decided who i would vote for but i have decided that the chequers deal would make this country a vassal state. i could never vote for that in all conscience and neither can many of my colleagues. they need to look into their hearts this weekend and decide what to do. i really appreciate you being here. thank you. now we have a companion here. it was another record breaking year for children in need, withjust over 50 million pounds donated last night. it means the charity has now raised over a billion pounds since it began in 1980.
let's take a look at some of last night's highlights. this is pudsey in the park. # town full of little people... # waking up to say... this year, it's disney. the terry wogan fundraiser of the year 2018. welcome to the tardis! this is amazing. two doctors! # i just want you to dance with me tonight. cue the totaliser! applause. joining us now from our london
newsroom is rosie millard, chair of children in need. you are smiling this money, that was a great total. remarkable, we beat last year and to raise £50.5 million over the week is truly amazing. i would just love to thank all of our fundraisers. the fundraiser of the year we saw just there fundraisers. the fundraiser of the year we sawjust there and the scottish entrepreneur tom hunter who has given millions over the years to children in need but yesterday gave £1.2 million to help disadvantaged children across the uk. ranging from the nations like that two small children having a bake sale. one
woman yesterday was sitting in a bath of baked beans for two hours and she does that every year for children in need. we are very grateful. it is amazing how people do still keep giving to this. what we re do still keep giving to this. what were your highlights? apart from you and charlie tripping the light fantastic! you did really well and you looked great. i loved the story of sam and willow. willow is this lovely big dog provided by the support dogs. sam has autism and his life has been turned around having below by his side. i love that interview with eddie redmayne where they were given the answers by small childrenjust doing they were given the answers by small children just doing naughty things
like say sleaze. and i found children just doing naughty things like say sleaze. and ifound it children just doing naughty things like say sleaze. and i found it very powerful the moment when project workers were teamed up with their heroes. they thought that they were just going for a singing audition and suddenly they turned around and their heroes were there. we fund these people to go into hospices to run drama and film projects for children and provide fun and friendship for them and sustenance. it is important that they are thanked. and can people still donate? absolutely. michael ball is doing a huge donation push tomorrow on his show on radio two. radio two is amazing, it has raised about £9 million on its own spearheaded by the wonderful chris evans who has just been a real ally of the whole
campaign. soi just been a real ally of the whole campaign. so i would like to thank him and people can carry on doing their thing. i have mentioned the rickshaw which raised millions. matt baker and six young people cycling from calais to salford. i think that is quite good at the moment, a piece of good news. since the telephones began in 1980 children in need has raised over £1 billion now. people mostly raised over £1 billion now. people m ostly fro m raised over £1 billion now. people mostly from the uk giving to children in need and that is very moving. thank you very much and congratulations once again with that success. let's take a look at the weather details now. sunshine is on the way — is on the way. and we will see more sunshine
developing into the afternoon. if we ta ke developing into the afternoon. if we take a closer look at the detail, parts of cornwall towards the isles of scilly still seeing some of that crowd. across the people district and the pennines we could also hold onto low cloud in the afternoon. breaking up at times in northern ireland. but for the majority sunshine overhead in many places. going into tonight the cloud is still in the north—east at times but for most it is clear skies around. and we are down into single figures tonight uk wide. some places will have some frost going into tomorrow morning. so still a bit of cloud
across the north east of scotland and eastern side of the pennines but for most it is sunshine from dawn to dusk. temperatures slightly higher for the time of year but a little bit down on what we have got used to. and it is going to get colder into next week. a bit more cloud around on monday as well. some sunny spells out towards the west and we could have some showers in the east. and temperatures for most down in single figures. it gets colder still into tuesday. more showers around mainly of rain but also some snow mixed in with that in places. and the wind will exacerbate that colder fuel. temperatures for all in single figures and add on that wind chill,
feeling close to freezing. but at least plenty of sunshine to enjoy for the weekend. when filmmaker sean mcallister returned to his hometown of hull for last year's 'uk city of culture', he found himself living back with his 90 year—old parents. he also discovered a city trying to reinvent itself, and decided that it would make a great subject for a documentary. let's take a look. # 0k, 0k. # who wants to go fast? # let's celebrate being free. # it means being me. # oh yeah! filmmaker sean mcallister, and hull resident steve arnott who you sawjust then, join us now. are we going to be part of another
film? if you're lucky you might get famous with me! so you go back to your hometown, originally for work and then you start to think that there is a story to be told?” thought that for a long time. i had been away for 20 years and coming back there was this close connection to my mum and dad and friends and family in hull. and i saw all these things are changing. so i wanted to look at how life had changed. do you think there is a perception that since hull was city of culture, to much fanfare and success, but the place would have moved on more than it has? i think everyone did not know what to expect from city of
culture so it was a learning curve for everyone. it is definitely move people on because there is such pride now in hull. what was the story, what is your story in terms of how things where and how they are now? when we first started filming i wasjust doing a normal dayjob and now i have set up a company. we deliver hip hop workshops to young people and we do all the elements of that, and also confidence building that, and also confidence building that runs alongside that. that sounds like a really positive thing happening in pretty challenging circumstances. after doing the opening show for uk city of culture in hull! opening show for uk city of culture in hull i met steve. he had an interesting story because he was a factory worker that he was going after the state to try to help kids
that normally would not get a look in. that was the challenge, how far city of culture would reach to those deprived estates. when you see the transformation in these little kids in the film and without steve they would have been ignored in that year. what are your parents say about hull because they watched you making this film? my mum is sitting at home watching you and unfortunately my dad is in hospital but he is watching as well. so hello to them. we wish him all the best. what do they say to you about how hull has changed? i think my dad never dream of hull city getting into the premiership! but city of culture has taken it to another level. hull was never on the map. leeds and manchester always had some identity but we embraced it as being
the butt of the joke. we even had t—shirts made up, it is never dull in hull. but i think the city has almost been rebranded to city of culture. for me would always had this kind of hidden culture that people did not know about. these little idiosyncratic communities. now it is on the map. and those youngsters we saw earlier, what did youngsters we saw earlier, what did you bring to them is that confidence? it is a confidence thing. blessing and harvey. blessing was his own character straightaway. but as soon as you build the confidence that their true colours start to come out. hardly had a stutter and he was excluded but steve made a point of saying he is
not excluded, he is coming in. he had this stamina and he was naughty and steve kept saying give him another chance. by the end of the film his stature is gone. did you see a bit of him in new? absolutely, totally reminds me of him, he reminded me of me at his age. there isa reminded me of me at his age. there is a charm about this and i think people will have their eyes opened to hull. i'm feeling overdressed! thank you. 'a northern soul‘ is on bbc two tomorrow night at 5 past 10. that's all from us for today. have a lovely weekend. this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley. the headlines at 10am: five ministers in theresa may's
