London Tonight Tonight

Hello Campers,

Welcome to the weekend. It starts here and now. Well... almost now. And, I suppose, not just here but all over the pla.. shall we get on?

We start tonight with an East End MP who was invited to a constituent's wedding - only to leave when he was told he couldn't sit with his wife. It's not the done thing at a Muslim wedding, or so he was led to believe. Jim Fitzpatrick MP has been very vocal about the damage such traditions could do to a cohesive society. The bride groom has been very vocal about that. Emma Walden rounds it all up for us.

Marcus Powell's mission - should he choose to accept it (let's face it - he has to - it's not a democracy round here) - is to round up the latest on the £40 million gem heist investigation.

TfL has hired some 'bike guides' to help those a little nervous of making their way round the capital's busy streets on two wheels. We've told Lewis Vaughan Jones to get on his bike.

Glen Goodman, meanwhile, is getting down, man, for a big rock festival this weekend. I say 'big'. 'Leefest' started out as a very small affair in a teenager's back garden in Kent. Seriously.

Incidentally, we'll also be looking at other ways you can fill your weekend - Mr King will talks us through his review of two movies and then we'll whistle through 'What Not to Miss'.

Football fans should keep an ear out for Ossie Ardiles' view on the new season - who's going to be up and who's going to be down come the end of play next year.

And - one more thing to tempt you with - well, thousands and thousands of people have already been tempted to head Watford-way this weekend for what is billed as the biggest celebration of the Krishna festival, Janmashtami, outside India. We'll be live at the build-up.

I have to go now as one of our favourite producers has just produced some cake to mark the fact she's about to become a Mum. The omens for her little boy or girl are very good indeed.

See you at six,

Ben & Alex
