welcome back to my broken arm. My

Then, the confrontation that stunned the audience on 'Dancing with the Stars'. But up next Kochie's got the finance report. And Beretts has highlights of Australia's crushing win over England in the fourth Ashes test. You're watching Sunrise on Seven. Checking finance figures Wall Street finished last week in the green. It's time to find out what we should be keeping an eye on in the financial week ahead. Let's get the full rundown from Craig James at CommSec. Craig, what should we watch out for? Considering the international

monetary found has put a bit of a damp anywhere on the Government's

economic forecast in the future?

Yes, those IMF report, I don't think

we should put too much stock in it.

A lot has changed over the last couple of months. We should believe what the Reserve Bank said, that our economy should be up rather than down probably early next year. We got some housing figures and

certainly very strong reports of got some housing figures and

people out there buying homes at present. We got figures on business

sentiment and consumer sentiment on Tuesday and Wednesday. It should be

pretty considering our economy is

holding up. On Friday that is when the Reserve Bank Governor will face

the grilling by the pollies. You will probably hear a few questions

whether our housing market is

heading for a bubble. We are in the middle of the earnings season. BHP

on Wednesday and Telstra on

Thursday. Also the profit figures. Speaking of grilling, glad you survived the grilling from my colleagues Beretts and Nat. You are looking splendid in your St Kilda

tie as well. Yes, it is looking

shiny. Start polishing. See you, mate, talk to you tomorrow. Australia has already set its sights on the final Ashes Test at the Oval after humiliating England in the fourth Test at Headingley. The visitors won by an innings and 80 runs in less than three days to level the series at 1-1. Ben Hilfenhaus got the ball rolling in the opening over of the day, getting rid of James Anderson. Mitchell Johnson wrapped up proceedings with the wicket of Graeme Swann, his fifth of the innings. That's what cricket is all about for

me. 1-1 in an Ashes series going

into the last venue at the oval. All

the guys are ready for that game. Australia only has to draw at the oval, starting Thuirsday week, to retain the Ashes. Fremantle has produced its best performance of the season, handing Port Adelaide a 42-point hammering at Subiaco Oval. The Dockers dominated the Power in every facet of the game with injury-prone veteran Des Headland returning to his brilliant best. COMMENTATOR: Headland! Marks, turns around, goals! Dessy has got three! The loss leaves the Power clinging to eighth spot and Chad Cornes may face scrutiny from the match review panel. There's been more swimsuit controversy at the Australian Short Course Championships. Christian Sprenger, a red-hot favourite for the final of the men's 100m breaststroke, was forced to miss the even after an unfortunate suit malfunction. No, no, no, you know, I guess the

light way to put it is where the sun doesn't shine. All eyes were on the controversy prone Nick D'Arcy and veteran Geoff Huegill in the final of the 100m butterfly. But both men were upstaged by veteran Adam Pine who set a new Commonwealth and Australian record. Tiger Woods has charged into the lead in the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

We are following Sam Stosur. It is her first WTA title. Fingers crossed. Still to come - a man's plea to the thieves who broke into his house and stole his wife's ashes. And later - the miniature horse who's been given a fresh start in life thanks to a very generous vet. But after the break - Olivia Newton-John's ex tells investigators to stop chasing him. Nelson's got the reaction from Hollywood, when Sunrise continues. The E-File on Sunrise with the all-original Nelson Aspen brought to you by 'New Idea', for all the latest celebrity news and more. There are fresh claims that Olivia Newton-John's ex-lover is alive. Patrick McDermott vanished four years ago. Investigators now say they have proof he didn't drown. For all the latest let's go to Nelson Aspen. Nelson, why are investigators convinced he's still alive?

I just wish it wasn't as dubious a

source of News of the World but

apparently Phillip Klein stands by all these reports. In February he was receiving faxes - he set up a website to track this man down. He said he that he received faxes on

his behalf to leave him alone, he

started his life anew. It is pretty

hard for law enforcement to leave

this guy alone and let him start his new life in a Mexican fishing

village when he left a huge pile of

debt and his son has a 6-figure

insurance claim. He is wanted for insurance fraud and for putting Olivia in a horrible position. A former child star has claimed he could be the father of Michael Jackson's children. Why does Mark Lester think he's the dad? Do you remember him from Oliver. Mark Lester was the godfather. There

you see a picture of Mark as a child

and Michael's daughter Paris. He is

claiming he could be the father of

at least Paris because at the time

she was conceived he gave a sperm

donation to Michael Jackson.

I would assume the one that looks

most like me is Paris. Looking at pictures of Harriet and Paris, there is a similarities. Paris has blue eyes and high cheekbones. My girls

have similar features and it has been commented many times how similar Harriet and Paris are. It would be easy to prove. They could just do DNA. They were close because

Michael Jackson is godfather to his

four kids. The crazy thing is - this

will all end up like the Anna Nicole

paternity case. Everyone was coming

out of the woodwork. Katherine Jackson's attorney made a statement

referring to this as a genetic lottery attempt and they have no

legal standing. The judge claimed regardless of DNA are Michael

Jackson's and Debbie Rowe's and that

is how they are treating it. One star has shot down rumours she'll be in the next 'Sex and the City' sequel. It is Suri's mom. Katie Holmes playing a bitter rival to Kim ka trel's character. She is happy to

make her film in Melbourne and

shopping until she drops. I hear she

is helping your economy down there.

Thank you, Nelson. Talk to you soon.

Which stat has the worst drivers. we'll find out why Gerrard Gosens is ignoring the judges on 'Dancing with the Stars'.

Jumping up and down to the disco beat, and that helps. You can wink at me anytime you want. I just got a little flutter. Listen to what people say and do what you're told, basically. That's what I'm doing. Oh, really? Yeah. Nelson Aspen in the United States.

A job's a job, right? Richard Arnold in the UK. I'm your resident "gob on a stick" as they say here in the UK. Showbiz reporting's A-list but only on Sunrise. (SINGS) # Do you have a dollar # Do you have a dollar for me # Have you got a little old house # and a lemon tree. # Remember Lisa Mitchell? She was the shy school girl who became an Idol star. Well now she's going in her own direction. And tomorrow she talks to Nuala about her debut album. That's Tuesday only on Sunrise. If you just tuned in, Mel is off today. Now, it doesn't get much lower than this. Shortly, the thieves who robbed a windower of his wife's ashes. So will they now have the heart to return them? But first let's see what's making news - here's Sharyn. Good morning. An Australian man has been shot dead in Iraq after an apparent argument with a colleague. 37-year-old Darren Hoare was working for a private security firm when he was allegedly killed by a fellow contractor in Baghdad's protected Green Zone. A British man was also shot dead while an Iraqi man was wounded. Iraqi authorities have charged a UK man with murder. Mining giant Rio Tinto has been accused of blackmailing Chinese steel mills for years, reaping an estimated $120 billion above market price for iron ore imports. The claims come as Australian executive Stern Hu spends his fifth week behind bars in Shanghai accused of industrial espionage. State secrets watchdog baomi.org reports data from Rio's computers shows it used "all possible means" to obtain secret information, causing tremendous harm to Beijing's economic security. Rio Tinto has previously denied bribery allegations. Mr Hu is yet to be charged. A woman has died after her four-wheel drive flipped and crashed north-west of Melbourne. Police say the 29-year-old was driving south in a Land Rover on the Melbourne-Lancefield road around midnight when she lost control. It's thought the car rolled several times. The single occupant of the car has been ejected from the vehicle and she was found deceased at the scene. Police are preparing a report for the Coroner. Voter dissatisfaction has jumped for Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull after he admitted being fooled by the fake Utegate email. A newspoll in today's 'Australian' shows 57% of respondents are unhappy with the way he's doing his job. That's up seven points since last month. And Mr Turnbull remains well behind Kevin Rudd in the preferred PM stakes with Mr Rudd holding a commanding 48-point lead. Typhoon Morakot has slammed into China's east coast forcing more than a million people to be relocated. Torrential rain and gale force winds hit the Fujian province late yesterday afternoon, causing widespread flooding and serious damage to the country's infrastructure. At least one person, a 4-year-old boy was killed, when his family's house collapsed. In Taiwan, the death toll from Morakot has risen to three with another 31 people still missing. The category one storm has caused some of the country's worst flooding in 50 years. Time for a check of sport, here's Beretts. Australia has capped three days of domination with victory in the fourth Ashes Test at Headingley. The visitors won by an innings and 80 runs to level the series at 1-1 ahead of the final Test at the Oval. Stuart Broad and Graham Swan provided the home crowd with some entertainment, combining for an eighth-wicket partnership of 108 off 80 balls. But it was only delaying the inevitable. COMMENTATOR: Bowled him!

There has just been a real feeling

of excitement around our group

of excitement around our group and there has been shown in the last couple of days. The Aussies only need a draw in the final Test to retain the Ashes. Knights officials maintain coach Brian Smith will see out the season despite yesterday's 40-8 thumping at the hands of Parramatta. It's Newcastle's third straight loss but the coach says he still feels safe. No-one in here with a gun, is there? The Knights are winless since Smith announced he's leaving at season's end to coach the Sydney Roosters. The race for the final spot in the AFL finals series is wide open after Port Adelaide was handed a footballing lesson at Subiaco Oval going down by 42 points to Fremantle. The home side was never threatened in what was easily their best effort of the season. Power coach Mark Williams was livid, labelling his side 'average'. There was nothing average about the effort from the mighty Whittlesea Eagles over the weekend. The boys had another comprehensive victory, by more than five goals. downing Watsonia on the local ladder The Eagles are third before the finals. with two games to go

Talking sport, a battle with depression, Ben Cousins has revealed while in rugby league is facing more calls to be sacked. Newcastle coach Brian Smith to discuss.

the category of a genuine contender.

When you get down to only four or

five weeks to go, the sides clearly work themselves out. You have the St George Illawarra and Canterbury, look for the sides like the Broncos who are struggling, if they get

momentum and make the finals, they

are the ones who have a danger of making something. It is a different

competition when you fit the finals.

If you get there with momentum

Why investigators say being put on schools And later, the extra pressure to offer better sex education. has the worst drivers? But next, which State on Sunrise. The answer follows the break we call Thrifty - When we need a car, and truck rental. Australia's best-valued car on the Gold Coast. A goregous start to the day Fine and 22 today. is making headlines again. Sharyn, Olivia Newton-John's ex vanished four years ago. Patrick McDermott they have proof he's alive. Investigators now say them on McDermott's behalf A mysterious middle-man has faxed asking them to back off. as a deckhand Apparently, McDermott is working in a small Mexican village. decided he probably drowned In 2008, the US Coast Guard during a fishing trip and suggestions along the way but there have been sightings that he was actually alive. McDermott was bankrupt to be left alone. and apparently just wants when he went missing, But we've seen how upset Olivia was he put her through that. you wonder why

How do you know that this guy who

faxed in or woman faxed in is

genuine. Investigators say they have

proof but how do they know this

person is. Nelson said it has come

from News of the World. They are

checking it at the moment. And the

son cashed in the settlement. And the people he owes money to probably want him back. another Michael Jackson headline. Now another day, of the singer's three children This time the godfather of Paris. thinks he is the biological father his sperm so that he could have kids Mark Lester says he gave Jackson and his own daughter Harriet. and he reckons Paris looks like him Lester says he's come forward now contact with Paris and her brothers. because he's being denied any him, his daughter Harriet and Paris? Can you see the similarities between most like me is Paris. I would assume the one that looks of Harriet and Paris, Looking at pictures between the two of them. there's a very strong resemblance Paris has blue eyes, pale complexion and high cheekbones. My girls all have very similar features and it's been commented many times how similar Harriet and Paris are.

I don't know. What do you reckon? Do

they look similar? There are a lot of blue-eyed, high cheekbones young

girls around. And he is saying because he is not in contact with

the daughter. It seems like why now?

They are close to the Jacksons. And

Michael Jackson is godfather to his

kids. He says they used to spend a

lot of time together and now shut

out and that is why he is coming

forward. Every man and his dog has a

claim on Michael Jackson's kids. He

is the little kid on Oliver Tift, all grown up. Here's one issue sure to be a hot topic around the water cooler. A survey of more than 1,300 Aussies says New South Wales drivers are the worst in the country. The research also concludes Did they really need to do si survey

on this? Is that all they don't do?

They are more reckless and cause

more accidents. I could go on. Is

that true? It was a good survey by the Women's Driving Institute. They

don't break it down. They just say 1,

don't break it down. They just say

1,300 people rather than the

percentage of men and women. Men are for decisive. With zebra crossings. You have to be careful. There are

two crossings. There is no way you

can let your kids go across by

themselves. I have to do a survey of

my own to see if they are men or

women. The part of the survey that

you failed to mention - they found

it was safer to drive during school

holidays when mums are not dropping their kids off at school. People who

double park. You take your life in

your own hands. Let us know what you think. Plenty of chatter on the soapbox about last night's 'Dancing with the Stars'. The judges weren't happy with the swing from Luda and Lincoln Lewis but Luda claimed Charles, the swing expert working for the show, had told them to dance it that way. Here's what happened next. I'm a little confused. Charles told

us there is no swing in the

us there is no swing in the west

coast swing. That is what we were taught. When you criticise our ability or our knowledge, you need to be very careful. I wasn't criticising, I was asking.

Technically that is not the first

time. You did it with samba. That is

nothing to do with what Lincoln did

tonight. We will not make it out on Lincoln. If you make kal comments,

you need to know what you are talking about. Well, I had Charles backstage with me. Well, then Charles doesn't know what he is talking about. We'll put this to Helen when she joins us at 7:50. But in the meantime, tell us what you think about the exchange. I don't know. The judges weren't happy. I got to say the judges have

got a bit high and mighty in this

series. They are getting way too

precious. They can dish it out but they can't be questioned back. I thought Luda did it in an inquirying

way to he Lincoln to improve. I didn't think she was disrespectful

to the judges. If the judges can't

take that, they need to have a good

luck at themselves. She didn't make

it up. They are happy to dish but

not happy to cop it. I think Charles

is in a bit of strife. Charles is in the back saying "

the back saying "Hang on, I got that wrong. the back saying "Hang on, I got that wrong." A lot are emailing saying " wrong." A lot are emailing saying "Not a good look. "Not a good look." Todd had the

veins going on in the neck. He was

very excited. Get a grip. After the break - your 10 minutes of news and weather, guaranteed. And the latest on that midair collision between a helicopter and a plane in New York. Plus, a husband's heartache. How he's been robbed of his wife - twice. And the mysterious disappearance of Patrick McDermott. This is such a personal thing for me and for his family. He's gonna make a mistake, they all make mistakes. He's gonna do something and I'll be right on his tail.

For the latest I'm joined as to what caused the crash? Rahni, are there any clues emerging The best clues are coming from witnesses who saw it happen. They

described the plane's wing coming off, the rotor blade coming off and

the helicopter sinking while the plane dropped hard. They were both

going in the same direction it seems

and it looked like the plane lowered

and the helicopter has come up, one

or the other, and bumped into each

other. There is no policing of planes below 335 metres New York. As long as you stay below that height,

you don't have to radio into towers

and the towers don't follow you.

Even if they had to be able to do

that or had to have done that, the radio towers are in different places. It

places. It would go from one tower

to another. It seems it was a blind

spot like what happens with cars on

the road all the time. How much do

we know about the identities of

those onboard? There was a pilot on

the helicopter who is from New Zealand and a 16-year-old and

17-year-old boys. In the plane was 60-year-old man who had his brother 17-year-old boys. In the plane was a with him and three teenagers killed

for the update. for a tough return to Parliament Malcolm Turnbull is bracing urge him as hostile Coalition members emissions trading scheme. to fight the Rudd Government's But environmentalists say Opposition MPs who vote against the policy are 'dinosaurs'. Federal politicians are called a lot of things but perhaps this comparison's a bit harsh... (ROARS) Parliament returns this week and climate change activists want Opposition MPs to back the Government's emissions trading scheme. They say dinosaurs ceased to exist but the coming days and months will determine whether here in Canberra, they still rule. Many Liberals and Nationals are refusing to support any scheme. It's a political fascinator, it's a bit of fishnet with a few feathers that you can stick on your head. But it's never going to keep the sunlight out. Now legal experts question whether the Prime Minister could use the climate change legislation to call an early election. Have you lost a potential trigger for a double dissolution? I've got to head off home, I think. For the Opposition Leader it won't only be climate change causing headaches this week. Malcolm Turnbull will also have to stare down critics of his leadership when the Coalition party room meets on Tuesday. There is an obligation on our leader to recognise that in opposition you fight, you don't surrender. Mr Turnbull is determined his leadership won't go the way of the dinosaurs. Typhoon Morakot has battered China's east coast, killing at least four people. In Taiwan, dozens are still missing as the island battles its worst flooding in 50 years. The typhoon hit just hours after almost a million people were evacuated from the coast. The powerful winds and torrential rains caused dozens of buildings to collapse. Hundreds have flexed their muscles in California for the 11th annual plane pulling competition. 25 teams attempted to pull a 72,000 kilogram FedEx airbus along the tarmac. The winning team dragged the aircraft seven metres within six minutes. All teams were required to raise more than $1,000 to enter with all proceeds going towards the Special Olympics of California. Checking finance figures - Wall Street finished last week in the green. To sport now, here's Mark Beretta. Australia has already set its sights on the final Ashes Test at the Oval after humiliating England in the fourth Test at Headingley. The visitors won by an innings and 80 runs in less than three days to level the series at 1-1. Ben Hilfenhaus got the ball rolling in the opening over of the day, getting rid of James Anderson. Mitchell Johnson wrapped up proceedings with the wicket of Graeme Swann, his fifth of the innings. It's what cricket's all about for me is 1-1 in an Ashes series going into the last Test match at a great venue at the Oval. All of our guys will be certainly be up and ready to play that game. Australia only has to draw at the Oval, starting Thursday week, to retain the Ashes. Fremantle has produced its best performance of the season, handing Port Adelaide a 42-point hammering at Subiaco Oval. The Dockers dominated the Power in every facet of the game with injury prone veteran Des Headland returning to his brilliant best. COMMENTATOR: Headland! turns around, marks, goals! Dessy has got three! The loss leaves the Power clinging to eighth spot and Chad Cornes may face scrutiny from the match review panel. A red-hot Tiger Woods has a share of the lead midway through the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio. He started the day two behind Padraig Harrington but reeled in the Irishman in just five holes courtesy of some brilliant putting. COMMENTATOR: How about it! This guy is unbelievable. Robert Allenby is the best of the Aussie contingent - he's at minus eight in a tie for third. Chelsea and Manchester United have squared off in the Community Shield this morning - the traditional curtain-raiser to the English football season. The Red Devils looked good, even without Cristiano Ronaldo, in a feisty encounter that was eventually decided from the penalty spot after the game finished at 2-all. The Blues prevailed 4-1 in the shootout to give new manager Carlo Ancelotti some early silverware. Soon on Sunrise - is Olivia Newton-John's ex-lover really still alive?

from gorgeous Surfers Paradise in

half an hour. Back to you, Kochie. Could Olivia Newton-John's ex-lover really be alive? Four years after Patrick McDermott vanished investigators now say they have proof with a fax, a photo, and phone calls from a mysterious middle-man. Pat McDermott and Olivia Newton-John seemed like a couple in love. When he disappeared on a fishing trip, it was initially presumed he'd fallen overboard and drowned. Some people do remember seeing him on the boat but they are trying to investigate whether... ..as to whether anybody actually saw him get off the boat. Olivia was left heartbroken when their 9-year romance suddenly ended. It's very hard for me to talk about this, as it's a very painful topic. It's still an investigation and I love him very much and as you can imagine, it's an incredibly hard thing to go through and, um... But investigators quickly suspected the bankrupt cameraman staged his death to escape debts and cash in on a life insurance scam. We've bought the name findpatrickmcdermott.com We need you to build a website. The whole purpose is when you log in, I trap your ass. Now four years later those investigators have received a fax claiming to be from McDermott's representative. It says, "Pat asked that I portray to you his innocence in the crimes "you have accused him of. "Pat has committed no crime. "Pat simply wishes to be left alone." McDermott is now believed to be working as a deckhand in the Mexican fishing town of Sayulita. The British tabloids broke the story and UK showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold joins us now. Good morning.

All this was revealed in the News of

the World newspaper. How strong is

the evidence Good morning. That is

indeed the question. The man responsible for tracking

responsible for tracking down Patrick McDermott is a chap called Phillip Klein who was hired from a TV show called Dateline. They track

down people who don't want to be

found. Did they really find Patrick

McDermott. A line of communication

opened up between an agent or

intermediate rary acting on behalf of Patrick McDermott. Several phone calls were exchanged and a fax claiming that he wants to hold his

hands up and that he just wants to

get on with his life. Also a

photograph, a grainy photograph, it

by no means confirms it is Patrick

McDermott. He has dyed his hair and

they say they are 94% that this is actually Patrick McDermott. 94% actually Patrick McDermott. 94%. That is an odd number. I know. What

is he meant to be doing in Mexico? As you say, he is apparently staying at a down and out fishing village in

Sayulita. This is no Noosa. Old

facts are emerging. He is staying at

a beach side motel. His preferred

room number is 10. In your money, it is about $

is about $40 a night. I am not sure

if breakfast is thrown in. To find Patrick scrubbing decks after

apparently falling off the back of

his own fishing boat. Do

investigators have any more

evidence. Why would he do something

like this to Olivia Newton-John?

Does she know? It is a store that

begs belief. They discovered that he

cleared out his bank accounts, his

life savings gone. He got a passport

in his birth name, Patrick kill.

This is something he planned and the

poor woman must have ran the entire

gamut of emotions, the problems in

their relationship and the debt he

got into. We have his driver to

thank for this. We are not sure if

it is him but by setting up this website findpatrickmcdermott.com. Anyone trying to find Patrick, their addresses would be revealed to

Phillip Klein and his agency. A lot of hits came from Mexico which we

believe Patrick is. Also a lot of

hits, whether it is coincidence or

not, addresses that Olivia would

have access to or at least she was in the location at the time when

those inquiries were made and it is an incredible story. Richard, we also want to ask you about another story. There are reports Prince William will visit Australia early next year. What more can you tell us? I am furious. I thought you were

going to get out the bunting or

march might for me. I am coming over

in January. Now the future heir of

England has trumped my card.

Rumoured to be heading your way for a good old-fashioned New Year's. He

is expected to go to South Africa.

There will be no bunting out in New York this year. A lot of high society mums will be getting ready

for that. They will indeed. I am

available for comment too, don't forget that. Now to the story of a Brisbane dad who's been robbed of his wife twice. Jay Carter lost his wife Amanda to skin cancer in 2007. But last week he arrived home to find his house had been broken into. The thieves took an entire safe, containing personal mementos and Amanda's ashes. Jay desperately wants the contents of the safe returned, for his own sake and his young son's. Jay, thank you for joining us. Jay, this is really adding to your grief, isn't it? Yes, absolutely devastating. Apart from Amanda's ashes, what else was in the safe? Wedding engagement Ricks, DVDs of our honeymoon, engagement party, obviously her ashes and there was a parting DVD that she made days before she died. That was the only

copy of it and that was in the safe.

There was a bracelet that I bought

her two months before she died. It

was everything to do with me being

married to her was in that safe.

Obviously a huge loss. It was a 70kg

safe. Do you think somebody out

there could not have opened it? Do

you think it is still contained? I

am hoping it is. I am very hopeful that we get the safe back. Two people - it's a heavy safe. You want

it back and you are saying no

questions asked? If I get the safe

back, that is the end of my

involvement with the police. It is

the end of it as far as I am

concerned. What do you want to say to the thieves? Hopefully they have a heart and hopeful - hopefully not

have to lose a loved one and have to

explain to their child that someone

stole all the memories of their

loved one. Our hearts go out to you.

Let's hope someone who is watching

has some correction and you get it

back. Thank you. And if you have any information, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. The godfather of Michael Jackson's children claims he could be their biological father. Mark Lester cites the likeness between Paris and his own daughter as evidence. Nelson Aspen is in Hollywood. Do you believe Lester's claim?

Well, look, I will take him at his word that he may have donated sperm

when he and Michael were friends and

Michael was looking to be a dad.

When it comes to paternity, I am with the judge on this. I don't

think the issue of his children has

anything to do with DNA. If they

were sperm donors, they willingly

gave it to Michael so he could

become a father. Michael and Debbie

Rowe were the parents regardless of any genetic connection to his

daughter Harriet. Naomi Watts is re-making a classic film but a star of the original isn't too happy about it? This is going around big this morning. The fact that Naomi Watts

is starring in a remake of the

Alfred Hitchcock movie The Birds and

also starring George Clooney, if it

happens. Tippy Hedren has been said how dare they try to remake The

Birds. It would be like painting the

Mona Lisa. I have known tippy for

many years and I emailed her to get

confirmation that these are new

quotes. I have a feeling it is old

quotes and now they are taking them

out of context. Tippy starred in a

sequel called The Birds 2. It is not

necessarily a remake but it is a

novelette. It is not per se a

remake. It is a reinterpretation of

The Birds. Tippy is a lovely lady.

If she emails me back, I will let

you know. Thank you, Nelson. Still to come - why Aussie teens have some major misconceptions about falling pregnant. We'll get some advice for parents. Plus, first Gerrard copped it. Now Luda's in the firing line. If you're going to make technical comments, you have to know what you're talking about. We'll ask Helen Richey to explain the 'Dancing' drama.

Right now, though, let's get a news hit. Here's Sharyn with the 7:30 update. Good morning. An Australian man is among two contractors murdered in Iraq allegedly by a colleague at a private security firm. 37-year-old contractor Darren Hoare from Queensland was shot dead alongside a British man in Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone. He'd been working for a company called ArmorGroup Iraq. The suspected gunman, who's from the UK, also wounded an Iraqi as he tried to flee. He's now in custody charged with murder. Mining giant Rio Tinto has been accused of blackmailing Chinese steel mills for years, reaping an estimated $120 billions above market price for iron ore imports. The claims come as Australian executive Stern Hu spends his fifth week behind bars in Shanghai, accused of industrial espionage. State secrets watchdog baomi.org reports data from Rio's computers shows it used "all possible means" to obtain secret information. Rio Tinto has previously denied bribery allegations. Mr Hu is yet to be charged. Malcolm Turnbull will be out to restore confidence in his leadership when Federal Parliament resumes today. He'll finalise the Coalition's policy on an emissions trading scheme arguing he can reach the same pollution reduction targets as the Prime Minister without the slug on households and businesses. The Government's emissions trading laws will be voted on this week. A New Zealand man has been identified as the pilot of the helicopter which collided with a plane over New York's Hudson River killing nine people. 33-year-old Jeremy Clark was taking a group of Italian tourists on a sightseeing tour when the chopper was hit from behind by a small plane. He radioed the accident helicopter and told him "You have fixed wing behind you". There was no response from the pilot. He stated that he saw the right wing of the airplane contact the helicopter. Four bodies have been recovered, divers are still searching for the remaining victims. Checking finance figures - and a strong end to the week on Wall Street. Now here's Beretts with sport. Australia has capped three days of domination with victory in the fourth Ashes Test at Headingley. The visitors won by an innings and 80 runs to level the series at 1-1. Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann provided the home crowd with some entertainment, combining for an eighth-wicket partnership of 108 off 80 balls. But it was only delaying the inevitable. COMMENTATOR: Bowled him! There's just been a real feeling of excitement around our group and I just felt a really good performance is around the corner. I think we've shown that over the couple of days. The Aussies only need a draw in the final Test at the Oval to retain the Ashes. Newcastle is supporting coach Brian Smith despite renewed calls for his sacking after yesterday's 32-point hiding against the Eels. It's the Knights' third straight loss since Smith announced he's quitting to coach the Roosters next year. Fremantle has produced its best performance of the season to thump Port Adelaide by 42 points at Subiaco Oval. Power coach Mark Williams savaged his side's effort, saying it's ridiculous they're still in the finals race. Irishman Padraig Harrington has reclaimed the outright lead late in the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio. Tiger Woods is one shot back at minus 10 after a bogey on the 14th.

Well done to the 75,000 or so

runners who took part in the City2Surf yesterday. Weather time

now and Fifi has headed north this

morning. How is the Gold Coast? You

are looking very contemplative. It

is gorgeous. I am enjoying the

morning walkers here on main beach and there are some late-night

revellers that and thereare some late-night I don't have a water temp for you

here at the beach down at surfers.

It is so warm. It will be a great

day here. I will enjoy it here on

the Gold Coast for the rest of the

day. I am not going to stop making

you feel bad about this. It is absolutely divine. Beautiful shots.

See you in half an hour. Tempers flared on 'Dancing with the Stars' last night. Shortly, we'll find out what made judge Helen Richey so upset. And later - why it could be time for a major re-think on sex education in schools. Up next, though, the tiny horse with a giant heart. We'll meet Koda straight after this. # Have you got a little old house # And a lemon tree. # Remember Lisa Mitchell? She was the shy schoolgirl who became an Idol star. Well, now she's going in her own direction. And tomorrow she talks to Nuala about her debut album. That's Tuesday only on Sunrise. It's time now for our Pet of the Day. If you ever wanted a pony as a child, you've got to see this. How about a horse that's smaller than a labrador, and can fit on your car seat. Koda the horse might be tiny but he's got a heart as big as Phar Lap's. He joins us now, along with his vet Andy Lynch. Good morning. Why is Koda so small?

I can't promise he will

I can't promise he will Say any words. Good morning. We got a little

hoody on him. He is going to surgery

for a couple of procedures. He will

have some X-rays of his hind legs.

Explain to us - We have to take

X-rays of his hind legs and get him

a clip because he grows a shaggy

coat quickly. Explain to us why he

is so small. What happened? Koda was born a dwarf. He is a miniature

horse. A miniature horse at 12

months of age, he is perhaps about three-quarters or two-thirds the

size of a normal horse. He was born

with various orthopaedic problems in his lower legs and his skull is

inefficient size to fit his teeth. He has had orthopaedic surgery on

his legs and he will have dental

surgery as well. He is lucky to have

you as a vet. I can't imagine the

cost of doing all this. No, he is

representing a good learning model

for us. It makes his vet bills a

little more affordable to his owner Karen. He is an in creditbly brave

little patient and he has recovered from them particularly well. Will he

have a long life? Can you do enough

surgeries to make him have a

relatively normal life or are you up against it? We certainlily hope so.

Optimistcally we hope to get 20

years of good quality life from him.

A normal horse would be 20 to 25

years. I would say with his

condition we would be happy with 10

years but 20 years would be

terrific. He is a tough little

bloke. What about his character? Is

he good natured? He is everyone's

friends. He gets along with other

horses. There is another horse he will spend today with, he gets along

very well with the clinic lat Levi. He has a mischievous treat. He likes to tug at everyone's shoelaces. He is everyone's friends. We will take him to see the bigger ho horse and you can see how tiny he is. We are getting a picture by you holding him like that. That is very cute. He is cute but you warning breeders don't

try this at home. We don't want more

of them. He is very lucky to you

have you as his vet. Thank you for explaining it to us. It is bizarre.

Thank you for that. It has been a pleasure. On the way - how parents can talk to their kids about the birds and the bees. And later, we'll show you around 'Air Force One'. But straight ahead - another tough night for Gerrard Gosens. You lost your timing You lost your timing You lost your timing And then you

picked it up and lost it again. So what does he think of the Dancing judges? Find out when he joins us, along with Helen Richey, next on Sunrise. Coming

coming up at 9 owe look, Luda lashes

out. 'Dancing with the Stars' most emotional outburst yet. Plus

paternity. Is this the real father of Michael Jackson's children? And

then return of the diva. # I wish I could say I misyou... # I wish I could say I misyou...# And Ricki-Lee is back with a venge ens. That is your 'The Morning Show'

right after Sunrise. Ever since he entered 'Dancing with the Stars', blind paralympian Gerrard Gosens has polarised the nation. Should he get extra credit or should he be judged like everyone else? The judges decided from day one not to cut him any slack and last night was no different. As a samba it was awkward. I didn't feel like I was watching a very nice dance. The thing you really need to work on in this dance is your feet and knees and ankles. You have this amazing sense of balance and that blows me away. Gerrard and his partner Jessica were in the bottom two couples but survived to dance another week. Gerrard Gosens joins us now with his guide dog Chief and judge Helen Richey. Good morning. Gerrard, from day one you've said you don't want to be treated differently but are you getting tired of the criticism?

No, I am not actually because I know

every week as hard as we try we are

getting better and I am becoming

more comfortable with the dances and

I am looking forward to the paso doble. Helen, we've received hundreds of emails from viewers angry about the judges' treatment of Gerrard, like this one from Carol in Queensland. Has it been a mistake to mark Gerrard so harshly? Look, I don't think so. It depends how you look at it. We could look

like the good guys every week and

give Gerrard a 10 for courage and

everything he is doing. We admire

him tremendously. It would be insulting to

insulting to Gerrard and everyone in

the competition. The only way you

can do it is to be Farrah cross the

board. I think Gerrard agrees with

that. Would you want to be treated

any other way? No, it has been an

awesome journey and every day I get

up and train it is through the

Australian public and their support to train hard every day. Gerrard, have you spoken to the judges about their constant criticism?

The only comment I made was to Todd

of constructive feedback. You would

believe that every single person has

a chance to improve and I am

prepared to work as hard as it takes

to become one day hopefully a

reasonable dancer. Gerrard, you weren't the only competitor in the judges' firing line last night. Lincoln Lewis's partner Luda spoke up and was shut down.

we had Charles, the west coast swing I am a little bit confused because

specialist. He told us there is no

swing in west coast swing. That is

why I am confused. When you cit why I am confused. When you criticise our ability or knowledge

you need to be careful. You got to

watch that, Luda. Quiet on the

floor. Excuse me. Technically that

is not the first time. You did it

with samba and you were totally

wrong about that. That has nothing

to do with Lincoln. If you make

technical comments, you need to make

sure you know what you are talking about. I had Charles backstage with

me and he was telling me - Perhaps

Charles doesn't know what he is

talking about. Charles I think is

running for cover somewhere in the

dance. He is staying in bed, whoever he is. Elle from Victoria wrote in to us. Helen, do you regret giving Luda such a dressing down or do you stand by what you said?

No, I stand by what I said No, I stand by what I said I do know something about west coast. I have been to the States many times. I danced it, I judged it. When she said Charles, I didn't quite get who she referred to. Obviously they were

given information to go down a

certain track. We were looking for

something different. No, I don't

regret anything I said S look, we

like them to talk to us and give us

feedback. But when they go down a

technical track, they have to

realise we have been down there and

done it. If they criticise us, which

we get, fair enough. When you

criticise them, they got to cop it.

When - and a lot of people are saying Luda wasn't disrespectful to the tree judges at all - she was

making an inquiry. You all got a bit

prickly. You can dish it but can't

take it. We can take it. It come across very well. It was about take it. We can take it. It didn't

a comment that Mark made about a

step. She said that everything else

apart from that step was west coast

swing so that is saying basically

that she
