People

  • 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.

  • Well, hello young man!

    It's a Dirty (Dancing) job, but someone's got to do it. Muddy meets Michael O'Reilly, sultry star of Dirty Dancing. Catch him at Wycombe Swan next week (but don't throw watermelons at him, he doesn't like it).

  • Muddy meets Tom Kerridge…

    ... and talks Marlow's Pub in the Park (Kaiser Chiefs, people), his favourite local eateries, and work life balance issues - yup, he has them too!

  • How He Does it

    The most iconic modern role for a male dancer is the Swan in Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake - so what does it take to make it? Current Principal Max Westwell, who stars in the ballet next week at the Wycombe Swan, reveals all.

  • Muddy meets Mandy!

    Pizza with Brendan Cole, a double act with Christopher Biggins and the blingiest panto dressing room of them all. Mandy Muden, who plays the MIrror in Snow White at Wycombe Swan next month, tells all.
