Johnny Depp has won his libel case against Amber Heard – he’s been awarded $15m in damages. Amber Heard has also won one of her counterclaims for defamation against her ex-husband and has been awarded $2m. The BBC’s Nomia Iqbal is outside the courtroom. Also, Newscast marks the Queen's Platinum Jubilee with Roman Kemp, who’s hosting the Party at the Palace this weekend, as he deliberates over the dress code. As the number of letters of no confidence in Boris Johnson tick up, Iain Dale and Ayesha Hazarika join Adam to assess whether Partygate has done permanent damage to the PM. And ahead of kick-off at Scotland v Ukraine, we hear from a Scotland fan and a Ukraine fan who are travelling to Hampden Park together for the World Cup play-off.
