hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. stick with us and you will be fully briefed if you are preparing to watch the olympics overnight. with me are the broadcaster and journalist james lewer, and the education editor of the sunday times, sian griffiths. tomorrow's front pages starting with... super saturday steals the show on the observer's front page — with the emotional celebrations of team gb�*s gold medal—winning triathlon team. the sunday telegraph splashes on celebrations of another kind — those of the prime minister and his wife carrie — who have announced that they are expecting a second child. the sunday express refers to the "heartbreak of miscarriage" as carriejohnson reveals she experienced a pregnancy loss earlier this year and hopes sharing what happened to her will help others going through the same. "kebabs forjabs" declares the sunday people on the latest
11:32 pm
efforts being suggested to encourage young people to take up the coronavirus vaccine, and summer holidays are the focus of the sunday times — with its story of a letter written by the chancellor rishi sunak to the prime minister urging him to make the most of the country's vaccination success and scrap travel restrictions. so, let's begin. we are going to start by looking at this idea that wilbur will be used to lure the young to get the job. —— uber. will that work sian griffiths? i think it will persuade young people... i think it will persuade young peeple- - -_ people... -- i think it will persuade _ people... -- i think it will persuade some _ people... -- i think it will persuade some young - people... -- i think it will. persuade some young people people... -- i think it will- persuade some young people to people... -- i think it will— persuade some young people to get thejob and persuade some young people to get the job and whether it pursues enough it will be cephas but is to say, uber, but other companies as well, waitrose, morrisons. apparently they are in talks of ministers to create a voucher scheme
11:33 pm
which means youngsters who got the job under 29 who got the first vaccination could get a £10 discount off all kinds of goods such as cab rides or groceries or pizza or even cinema tickets. and it is all about really trying to persuade the younger generation to get vaccinated before especially the autumn when students are due to go back to universities and students are going back to goal, all those students and children crossing in cities is likely to push up transmission again of the virus and so if they can be vaccinated before that date, that would be a very good thing. i that date, that would be a very good thin. . ., ., ., that date, that would be a very good thinu. . . ., ., , .,, thing. i imagine a lot of people watchin: thing. i imagine a lot of people watching this _ thing. i imagine a lot of people watching this james _ thing. i imagine a lot of people watching this james lewer - thing. i imagine a lot of people - watching this james lewer watching watching this james lewer watching this after their jabs watching this james lewer watching this after theirjabs they have a sticker, they didn't get a voucher. but do you remember that certain age james where i don't know how years

11:36 pm
rainbow baby, disclosing she did have a miscarriage earlier this year. it was very brave of her to shape that information. she said she had shared it because she was heartbroken when she had her miscarriage and took some comfort from listening to the stories of other people who had been through similar experiences and she wanted to share her own expense to help others. —— brave of her to share that information. i think that is a brave and kind thing to do. last year we saw meghan markle do something similar, she too had had a miscarriage and went public about it. and i think both women are trying to break down the statement that surrounds miscarriage and stillbirth and breakdown the barriers and the loneliness that so many women feel when they have these experiences and in a room of 100 women, meghan markle read last year ten or 20 will have had a miscarriage so more women than we think are going through these very
11:37 pm
heartbreaking tragic experiences and it's good that people are not talking about them openly. james lewer this is _ talking about them openly. james lewer this is a _ talking about them openly. james lewer this is a deeply _ talking about them openly. james lewer this is a deeply personal. lewer this is a deeply personal story for the prime minister's wife and his self as well. she has just to talk about it. is this just her story or can we read something wider into this generational decision to talk about personal pain notjust of course herewith miscarriage but with other things as well?— other things as well? certainly and i think it is other things as well? certainly and i think it is a _ other things as well? certainly and i think it is a positive _ other things as well? certainly and i think it is a positive thing. - other things as well? certainly and i think it is a positive thing. like i i think it is a positive thing. like sian— i think it is a positive thing. like sian said — i think it is a positive thing. like sian said breaking down stigma, we saw meghan markle doing it with her story and _ saw meghan markle doing it with her story and now carrie johnson doing it herself, — story and now carrie johnson doing it herself, i— story and now carrie johnson doing it herself, i think it's a good thing — it herself, i think it's a good thing for— it herself, i think it's a good thing for men and for women to talk about— thing for men and for women to talk about as _ thing for men and for women to talk about as well. there are lots of couples — about as well. there are lots of couples that go through this, it is not uncommon and i think it is only a good _ not uncommon and i think it is only a good thing — not uncommon and i think it is only a good thing we talk about these things— a good thing we talk about these things because as set as they are, they are _ things because as set as they are, they are normal and they happen. the nhs numbers show one in eight women that are _ nhs numbers show one in eight women that are pregnant go through miscarriage. so this happens a lot unfortunately. but it's a good thing

11:39 pm
coming back from, the need to pay for tests, that this is all sort of damaging the economy, tourism, and he is saying "we have a vaccination programme which has done incredibly well, so many of our population are no double jabs, but have more faith in that and ease these travel restrictions which are more draconian than our european competitors." and that's the way to go forward. it will be interesting to see what happens on thursday and which way ministers decide to go because there is still a lot of concern that one could get in and out the borders of a new variant, talk of the beta strain and how dangerous that might be. whether the travel restrictions will be relaxed, it is hard to say. they are certainly quite confusing at the moment. , ., . . , ., , moment. green watch west, amber, amber plus. — moment. green watch west, amber, amber plus. red- _ moment. green watch west, amber, amber plus, red. james _ moment. green watch west, amber, amber plus, red. james lewer - moment. green watch west, amber, amber plus, red. james lewer did i moment. green watch west, amber, l amber plus, red. james lewer did you learn all of this and surely, the prime minister might accountant it to the chance particularly on the
