People

  • Where you heading, Curtis?

    The Love Island star slips on his velvetine knickerbockers for his starring role in Dick Whittington at Wycombe Swan this month. He talks tans, secrets and AJ's budgie smugglers. Curtis, we're all ears!

  • How Helen Glover does it

    Champion rower, mother, partner to Steve Backshall and all round marvel - Muddy meets Helen Glover to talk fitness, family and breaking her Olympic gold medal (oops).

  • Meet the woman who’s declared war on plastic

    We like her style (in every sense). Beth Noy, the founder of Plastic Freedom, runs an online shop collating the coolest plastic-free brands around. She's got some brilliant- and achievable - advice for us all.

  • Muddy meets… The Oxfordshire Gardener

    What would you ask an award-winning garden designer? What hand cream he uses, if his own garden ever looks rubbish and who's his favourite green-fingered celeb, obviously!

  • Yup, stage school works!

    Another year and another surge of nascent stars of the stage and screen graduate from Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.

  • Food fit for a queen

    Sacre bleu! L'Ortolan's creative Head Chef Tom Clarke spills the beans on cooking for the Royal family, his love of French cuisine, famous diners and his food-trend regrets (he's had a few).

  • My favourite places: Emma Deeley

    Super-stylish Emma Deeley, who owns The Tythe Barn in Launton with her husband Will, shares her favourite hidden gems found in Bucks & Oxon. Where first?

  • All hail the Pearly Queen

    Claudia Bradby is the chic jewellery designer who's put the pizzazz back into pearls, with celeb fans including Helen Mirren and Kate Middleton (who's also a pal!). Go meet her at Biagio's Prosecco and Pearls night, but start here first - it includes goss on the Royal Wedding!

  • Muddy meets Nik Kershaw

    Nik Kershaw is laconic, laid-back, and *very very* funny - read on for his views on Live Aid, embarrassing his kids, the Let's Rock the Moor pecking order and (OMG) being a grandfather!
