People

  • 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).

  • A day in the life of… a theatre director

    Losing star actors, play Dobble, chucking mashed potato around - it's all in a (surreal) day's work for Chipping Norton Theatre's artistic director.

  • Everybody’s talking about…

    Love Island's Curtis, who's managed to snaffle a highly-prized jaunt in the High Wycombe Christmas panto whilst he's still sunning it on the show!

  • 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!

  • When Muddy met Shappi

    Comedian Shappi Khorsandi discusses new tour, coming to The Stables MK, her tips on how NOT to be funny and why you should do things that scare you (hell yeah!)

  • 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!

  • The Guilty Feminist

    Love the podcast? Good news- we grabbed Deborah Francis-White for chinwag.

  • Muddy meets Terry

    Eighties skankers The Specials are back with a brilliant new album and a headline slot at Cornbury festival this summer. We nabbed the delightful Terry Hall for a natter about shopping, selfies and his alternative career as a barber.

  • No, Tom, Noooooo!

    Is this the most excruciatingly cringey celebrity advert ever? Quite possibly Mr Hiddleston, quite possibly!

  • What’s up doc?

    Can't get an appointment at your local GP surgery? Go see one on tour instead! Dr Michael Mosley is rocking up in Wycombe and is on hand to answer all your impertinent questions. Muddy meets him.
