I am looking to insulate with Foam Xtratherm and MDF panels but I want to leave part of the studs in the shed revealed as i like the look of them, is this okay or will the cold seep through the studs into the room or heat go other way?

much easier to Finnish flat and add fake strips as easier to change
otherwise you need a batten either edge to fix to
avoid mdf use osb or ply

Thanks Big - all .
I think you are right, only issue is the foam board i bought already is only 25m so there will be big gap between it and the osb, I bought the thinner option to allow me to do my initial plan.

So the shed wall, a 20 mm gap, then the xtratherm 25mm foil backed foam, then the osb , Can there be a gap between the xtratherm and the osb?

just put a bigger gap at the outside, a gap inside may attract moisture
usually the outside gap is a compromise, too small will restrict airflow to big you loose insulation value
