Many of you will agree that ironing isn’t one of the most exciting things to do. But some wacky people in the East Midlands (UK) discovered, back in 1997, that if you do your ironing in an unusual location and call it extreme then it becomes all that more fun. We’re not convinced you’d leave with perfectly ironed collars and crease-free trousers though.

Today we saw one EI (extreme ironer) make the headlines as he planted board on ground and placed iron to shirt in the middle of the M1 (one of the UK’s busiest motorways). For those of you unaware, the M1 has been causing havoc in recent days as it has been shut due to a fire, so the mystery ironer was playing safe all along. So the question is, does that actually class as extreme ironing?
