  • Alesha Dixon comes to Strictly star Alexandra Burke's defence

"It's a roller-coaster of emotions – highs and lows, ups and downs – and when you come out the other end you're so proud that you went through it," Alesha said.

  • High-intensity exercise may boost memory

    High-intensity exercise can benefit both muscles and the memory. Academics at McMaster University have found that partaking in six weeks of intense exercise, such as short bouts of interval training over the course of 20 minutes, can significantly improve what is known as high-interference memory. This type of memory allows humans to distinguish items, for example, the differences between cars of the same make and model. For the study, 95 participants completed six weeks of exercise training, combined exercise and cognitive training or no training. Both the exercise and combined training groups improved performance on a high-interference memory task, while
