In this episode of Check it Out, Jacqui Berkeley and Eamonn Holmes investigate price fraud, a new mineral water facial spray and how to ease daily stress with some juggling!

First, the case of Texas Homecare which had been accused of overpricing their products, something the retailer claimed was down to a barcoding error. David Livingstone (Trading Standards) shares his thoughts on the issue. 

Next, Andrea Catherwood meets local entrepreneur, William Brown. He is is repurposing mineral water from Spa, Ballynahinch, as a facial spray. However, Dr Corbett (Royal Victoria hospital) has tested the product and states that it provided no greater health benefits that everyday tap water, a finding disputed by Mr Brown. 

Following the Chris Eubank and Michael Watson fight, which ended in tragedy - Michael Watson was left in a critical condition, with life-altering injuries - Eamonn asks Bill Clark (Sunday Mirror) and Dr. Gabriel Scally whether the sport should be banned in Northern Ireland.

Lastly, Jacqui reports on imported beers and debunks the myth that Mexicans put a lime in their beer. Concluding this episode, Adam Gardner and Mark Robinson show us how juggling can beat stress, suggesting that when you're juggling, "you can't think of your partner's infidelity or mortgage repayments"!
