But as his family constantly reminds him, there’s one thing he’s missing – a girlfriend.

Speaking to The Mirror, Musharaf joked that he has been “hiding” from his loved ones since graduating from university, as he used his studies as an excuse not to think about settling down. life.

“As brown and Asian, I think we’ve got a checklist of this kind that’s not really ours but our parents’,” he said. The first thing is to go to school and get some kind of education.

“That [settling down] is the last draw at the moment. I’m currently in hiding because it seems like all the aunts and uncles are basically trying to get me to hitchhike.

“MotherMom got a lot of calls because they wereknow that I graduated. I’m using uni as an excuse, so I’m hiding for now. Hopefully, I can lay low for a few more years.”

Mushy isn’t too worried about finding love, as he’s still on the cusp of graduating from college – something he never thought he’d be able to do.

“I won’t be where I am [without my teachers]. Teachers can truly change a young person’s life in ways they never thought they could. ”

The whole country has followed Mushy’s journey on Yorkshire Education, so it’s no surprise that when he arrives at university and meets new people, they immediately know who he is – especially when he used as a case study in one of his lectures.

“I had this one module and it was really based on Yorkshire Education, which was pretty crazy,” he recalls.

“I was literally right behind, and everyone turned to look at me. It was a very surreal moment.”

If he’s being honest, though, there’s only one regret Musharaf has when it comes to the show that started it all.

“I’m pretty annoyed with the clip,” he joked, “I say it’s not bad, but it annoys me because if only I had cut my hair! It’s something I never thought about as a kid, but it’s true! amazing as in the clip, I just wish I could cut my hair”.
