HEATH: A lingering cough or cold can be extremely irritating, but many of us are asking our GPs for antibiotics too soon, rather than waiting for the virus to run its course. Xtra visits the doc to find out more.

CELEBRITY: Playing Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit is the biggest role of Martin Freeman's career but he's not looking forward to the inevitable exposure that it will bring him, as he tells Susan Griffin.
