Life

  • J’adore/j’abhor: camping

    Does the sight of a sleeping bag pique your sense of adventure, or break you out in a cold sweat? Two Muddy behemoths duke it out over camping - let's hope it doesn't get too tents (sorry).

  • J’adore/ J’abhor: video calls

    Are you a FaceTime fanatic or a Skype cynic? After months of video call catch-ups, two Muddy editors battle it out over the digital face-to-face.

  • Muddy meets: Shlomo, beatboxer

    He's worked with Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen, and Rudimental, and now record-breaking beatboxer Shlomo is raising money for the NHS in association with theatres like Warwick's Playbox. Tell us about it, Shlo!

  • Muddy meets… Olivia Burt

    We caught up with the 'Masterchef: The Professionals' finalist for all the backstage goss from the show, her must-eat spots for post-lockdown, and her run-in with police in Paris. Blimey!
