Bubbles, badminton and brownies - Lauren Smith and Marcus Ellis

Published on: 15th March, 2021

It's bubble time again for badminton's best. This time it's at the 'Wimbledon' of badminton - the All England in Birmingham.

Lauren and Marcus talk us through their latest bubble - they can't go outside, but they can order take-aways. So what's their delivery of choice?

As for the tournament, Lauren and Marcus find themselves in the same part of the draw as two other British pairings, including Gabby and Chris Adcock. We discus rivalries.

And if you follow Lauren on instagram you'll see a love of brownies (check out @laurensmith). Lauren believes any food in moderation is ok and is happy to accept a brownie challenge.

Thanks for listening!
