This Is Money: What will Boris's downfall, a new Prime Minister and Chancellor mean for the economy and our finances?
Boris Johnson finally came unstuck this week and resigned as Prime Minister after one scandal too many caught up with him. Whatever you thought of the PM - and he certainly has the ability to divide a room almost as well as he can entertain it - there is no doubt that this ushers in another bout of 'what next?' instability for Britain. The economy is struggling, an inflation crisis is in full swing and the Bank of England is raising rates into a recession, yet at the end of a tumultuous week we are not just down one Prime Minister but a Chancellor and aren't quite sure if the new man in the job will be sticking around very long. The new Chancellor, Nadhim Zahawi, reportedly has designs of his own on the job next door at Number 10 and even if he makes an unsuccessful leadership bid, will a rival want him sticking around? Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look at what the change in Prime Minister could mean for the UK's economy, businesses and households - and what a new Chancellor might do and the challenges they will face. Also, some big UK name household shares have taken a beating this year, but which would the experts pick as having fallen too far and as ripe for a bounce back? The team look at whether, with rates rising, a ten-year fixed rate mortgage is a good move and Tanya talks us through the latest round of state pension mistakes and what the DWP is doing. And finally, will you end up with a bit more cash when you get paid this month? Yet, another National Insurance change is kicking in, here's what it means.

The Hypnotist: Vomit Phobia
There are things with which we just can't cope, and one such may well be vomit. Adam Cox tackles a pair of beliefs - that vomit is horrific, and an inability to cope with severe anxiety or terror - by changing these mindsets into alternative understandings: this approach can be much more effective than de-sensitisation. The episode can be used to tackle other phobias such as arachnophobia - so if you suffer from these unpleasant things, give it a try

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: How are markets affected by mid-term PMs?
Russ Mould of A J Bell discusses with Simon Rose how markets have reacted to the resignation of Boris Johnson as PM, reflecting that no PLC board could behave as some politicians have done. He has looked at what difference it makes to shares when the Prime Minister is changed mid-term, finding that it makes little difference in the short term. Over a longer period, the economy is likely to have more of an effect although government policy – interventionist or not? – may yet be important. One thing is sure, this uncertainty won't encourage the overseas investors on whom the UK is so dependent.

The Business of Film: Minions – The Rise of Gru, The Man From Toronto & Blasted
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the UK box office, where Minions: The Rise of Gru enters at #1. Disliking it intensely and querying the BBFC's "U" certificate, he calls it "cultural rat poison". With Elvis, Top Gun and Jurassic World holding well, James turned to Netflix for filmic enlightenment. But he found the Kevin Hart/Woody Harrelson comedy The Man From Toronto dreadful and was even more dispirited by Norwegian sci-fi comedy Blasted. He only managed to cheer himself by watching Avatar ahead of this year's belated sequel, finding it vastly better than he remembered.
