A truly great idea.

In this day and age, you'd be hard-pushed to find a young person who isn't using the instant-messaging app Snapchat.

An Indian organisation called Love Doctor is putting the ubiquitous nature of the technology to good use, and using it as a tool for people who want to report that they are suffering from domestic abuse.

While the organisation is currently only really helping out Indians and Indians residing in places like the US and Canada - we can safely say that we'd love to see such an account established in Ireland to help people report any abuse they might be facing.

Here's a powerful advertisement for the Snapchat account, lovedoctordotin.

Why not hit play on the video below to let funnyman Fred Cooke woo you with his sexy French accent, Dara Dynamite ditches the Speedos to become a Kingsman, Mayo band Flat Out put the woe of the All-Ireland Final behind them to perform the Magic Cover and Justine Stafford takes to the streets to find a date for the Debs.

We also caught up with the cast of Kingmsan: The Golden Circle – Taron Egerton and Mark Strong – as well as the stars of new Irish film Maze – Barry Ward and Nidge himself, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (and his wonderful hat).

It's all jam-packed into this week's episode of The JOE Show, so what are you waiting for?
