This week, we are joined by the lovely and super talented band, New Rules. Nathan, Alec and Ryan talk about the origins of the group, life in the band, song-writing, fan mail, icks, red flags and so much more. You can find them on social media @newrules (or @newrulestweets on Twitter). Charleen and Ellie help out with a dilemma about a "friend" pushing you out of your group, and advice for a girl who found out her boyfriend was cheating on her via an Instagram DM from a random person.

As much as giving advice to your dilemmas, we LOVE hearing updates, and there's three updates today! Disclaimer: one of them may or may not have made Charleen and Ellie cry... This week, the girls are helping out a girl who feels like she's missing out on opportunities because her boyfriend does not want to go on holidays because they are "not worth it". Should you give your ex the time to better himself and get back to the old him, or should you stop romanticising his potential and accept that things will never be the same? And how do you deal with a really bad texter?

This new TikTok trend is "the belief that you can attract good things into your life by asserting that you deserve them and that assuming you are lucky will bring you good fortune". But is it a load of waffle or is it a real thing? Charleen and Ellie talk about 'Lucky Girl Syndrome', how it is practiced and what it can do for you, and we hear some of your opinions on this new manifestation trend. In Secrets From The Stalls, the girls help out with advice for a girl who is with her boyfriend for 5 years, but keeps thinking back to an old fling. How do you bring up the "what are we" conversation to the person you're seeing? And should you reach out to the guy who told you he wanted a relationship with you, but then it turned out that he was in it for the sex?

It's that time of the week, where Charleen and Ellie help out with answering even more of your dilemmas! How do you tell your boyfriend that his mother is too involved in your relationship? Do boys come clean about cheating or do you have to investigate into it? What can you do to open yourself up for a relationship when you're scared of the heartbreak it might bring? And is your personal trainer the person that a medium told you that you would meet?

There's lots of questions that we all have but you don't know who to ask or where to go to find the answers. They are the questions that you might feel awkward or scared to ask, or think that you should already know the answer to, so you don't ask at all. That is what this episode is for! From birth control, tampons, and shaving to first time doing the deed, consider Charleen and Ellie your 'big sisters' to answer your questions! Not only are the girls answering these questions, but, as always, they are also answering your dilemmas in Secrets From The Stalls. What can you do if you think that guys see you as "easy" to get with, and you're not making any real connections with anyone? Should you confront your boyfriend if he's following and storing content from provocative accounts on social media? And is it time to hand in your notice if you're hating your job, but it's keeping you there for experience and money?
