We’ve all probably experienced a broken heart at some point in our lives whether that’s to do with the break-up of a relationship or the loss of a loved one.

But the link between emotional pain and the one we feel in our hearts is really just a metaphor - just an expression of that grief.

Or is it?

Jonathan is joined by Dr Sandeep Jauhar - Cardiologist and author of ‘Heart: A History’ to talk about how the heart can change its shape as a result of the emotional pain we feel which can lead to serious health implications or even death.

As well as that, as always we have the latest news stories from the world of science and Jonathan responds to all your texts and tweets.
