We've all heard about the increasing problem of body image issues, with some surveys showing that up to 90% of women are 'highly dissatisfied' with their bodies.

Body shaming on social media has recently been highlighted.

Wessex FM listener Lucy Staddon-Snell is hosting a screening of a documentary called Embrace, made by Australian Taryn Brumfitt, which tackles the subject.

It's on at the Odeon at Brewery Square in Dorchester on 26th February at 3pm. 

Lucy called to tell me more about it:

We had a visit from 'Popera' band G4 today at Wessex FM!

They were runners up in the first series of The X Factor in 2004, and have had a number of successful albums and sell out live tours ever since.

They're playing at Weymouth Pavilion on 11th March, and have a brand new love songs album.

Maria, Ben and I from Wessex FM took them into the town centre, where they sang to gathering shoppers and handed out beautiful roses from P & M Read Florist on the Poundbury Road in Weymouth!
