Some of our contributors share their man crush and greatest adventures…
What has been your greatest adventure so far? Driving to The Gambia in a Ford Escort. We had to dig ourselves out of sand drifts in the Sahara, but the car never let us down.
Man you’d most like to sit next to on a plane? Giles of ‘Giles and Mary’ from Gogglebox. I’ve known him for years and he’s even funnier in real life.
Fashion trend that never should have been invented? I hate anything made of plastic, so I never understood Crocs, which are actually made of foam resin and will probably survive the apocalypse.
Where do you go to retreat from the world? I’m very lucky to have a cottage in Wiltshire where there’s no mobile phone reception. Estate agents always talk up ‘connectivity’, but for some rural properties they should do the opposite. It’s bliss.
What has been your greatest adventure so far? I did a quadrathlon (four marathons in four days) in Norway, camping in yurts. Without doing any training I won the women’s division.
Man you’d most like to sit next to on a plane? My dad, on the way to India. Because it’s my favourite country and I’ve been trying for years to get my parents to go and experience it.
Fashion trend that never should have been invented? Skinny jeans – they weren’t designed for sporty girls with muscly legs!
Where do you go to retreat from the world? My sofa at home in the New Forest, curled up in front of the wood burner with my Rhodesian Ridgeback dog, Thala.
