  • My favourite places

    Renowned Oxfordshire floral stylist and friend of Muddy, Willow Crossley, knows some stylish local spots that she thinks you'll love, including one in Warwickshire. Ready to take notes?

  • Muddy meets… Melissa Hemsley

    It turns out the healthy cooking queen has culinary disasters too! Melissa spills the beans (then whips them up into a tasty frittata)...

  • Muddy meets The Whip’s Katherine Pearce

    We caught up with the talented young northern actor who's gone from causing drama as Lolly in Corrie to playing a gutsy former cotton mill worker in the RSC's new play about the abolition of slavery in Britain.

  • Exclusive interview! Muddy meets…. Laurence Fox

    The actor-turned-singer has been front page news since an incendiary appearance on Question Time last week. In this exclusive interview, he talks midlife crises, death threats and groupies with Muddy's Kerry Potter.

  • Muddy Meets Josie Long

    We caught up with (we reckon) the most positive comedian in the business about motherhood, MasterChef, making people laugh and her new tour, Tender.

  • Muddy meets… Forbes Masson

    Versatile Scots actor Forbes has gone from reading David Walliams' books to his kids to playing scary headmaster Mr Hawtrey in the RSC’s new musical adaptation of The Boy in the Dress.

  • Fight Club

    Love a good food fight? Well there's a huge one in the RSC's new autumn production King John. Just don't go in your best garb if you've booked a front row seat! Coventry-born actor Richard Pryal filled us in.

  • 8 Wedding Bouquet Trends

    Planning a wedding and curious about the latest bouquet and floral trends? We spoke to in-the-know Warwick florist Hannah Bosbury at Green and Wild.

  • Muddy Meets Terry

    Eighties skankers The Specials are back with a brilliant new album, sell-out gigs and a headline slot at Cornbury festival. We nabbed Terry Hall to talk shopping, selfies and his career as a barber.

  • Diary of a Showgirl

    Muddy meets Melissa James, who stars as sultry showgirl Dora Chance, in Emma Rice's racy, "life-enhancing" adaptation of Angela Carter's Wise Children, ending its debut UK tour in Coventry.

  • Girls on Top!

    Muddy meets the super-talented Warwickshire actor Amelia Donkor who's making her RSC debut as a gay shepherdess and a badly-behaved female suitor in two gender-swapping comedies.
