Which Has More Bacteria... The Results!

Ed and Rach with science

On Thursday's show our top scientists Dr Julia Lodge and Dr Luke Alderwick from the Institution of Micro-Biology and Infection at the University of Birmingham took samples from Ed's phone and Rachel's handbag.

They then spent hours and hours studying the swabs and brought in the resulting bacterial cultures. Don't they look lovely?
