Not sure exactly why but I really cannot stand,her and,she ruins dancing on ice for me.

She just seems,too much of a WAG and really false. I don't feel like she,cares about any of the contestants on the show and is way too thin. She's not a good,presenter either.

What do others think?

I think she is a bit non-descript, nothing about how she looks or presents jumps out at me as good or bad. There are far worse presenters on TV but many better as well.

I think her presenter skills are lacking.

I think she had an established career before she fell in love with her footie boyfriend.

I think she looks stunning. Not too thin. I hate the way women criticise other women for their appearance.

I was criticising her more for,her presenting skills and lack of empathy in my opinion. I cannot understand how she has managed to have a career in presenting. She just doesn't seem genuine and,has no connection with the audience or any of,the team on dancing on ice.

I was put off her by an article she wrote for Glamour magazine a couple of years ago, about how the press had published a photo of her looking fat.

She didn't look remotely fat, and it made me cross. She didn't even have a roll of fat on her, she had one normal skin roll and was sitting on a boat in a bikini.

I stopped buying Glamour after that - cancelled my subscription. I just felt that if they were publishing a woman of her size saying she looked fat, then they didn't represent me (definitely fat)

I've never taken to her since that.

'...and is way too thin'.

Criticism of a woman's apprearance, no?

TidyDancer Sun 17-Feb-13 20:36:55

YANBU. Can't stand the woman.

How come she's presenting Dancing On Ice? What's happened to Holly?

Porkster Sun 17-Feb-13 20:38:46

I know it's wrong to say it, but I can't stand her accent.

Hi there, I don't know if I have my facts right but I feel that she 'stole' Frank Lampard from Ellen Rivas. Was there an overlap or not?

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 17-Feb-13 20:40:02

Holly left to do The Voice

I'm from belfast and I can't stand her voice either.

"Death is far too good for both of them."

That's a bit harsh!

MrsCR Sun 17-Feb-13 20:40:45

Way too thin, she has CHANGED - whats going on with her? Trying to prove something after daybreak disaster perhaps?

Wrong

merlottits Sun 17-Feb-13 20:41:15

Awful presenter, unpleasant on the ear accent, horses teeth, no empathy, just horrible. Bleugh.

superstarheartbreaker Sun 17-Feb-13 20:41:28

I think saying that deeath is far too good for both of them is a little extreme! Good gracious but for some reason I have her down as a home wrecker.

Oreocrumbs Sun 17-Feb-13 20:42:08

She really irritates me too. I think she is very wooden and always looks condescending and like she has much better things to be doing then talking to this pleb.

I hate the way women criticise other women for their appearance.

So do I but it's all about appearance. Why doesn't anyone go on with their own style instead of identikit bright dress, flicky hair, heels.

whateveritakes Sun 17-Feb-13 20:43:50

Put me off when she said she didn't like dogs.

Hopefully that's put her out of the running for any nature type programmes.

Frank Lampard......on the plump side............really??hmm

PuffPants Sun 17-Feb-13 20:45:42

I don't like her accent or her orange Oompa Loompa-ness. She looks radioactive.

That aside I do think she has a cracking body, very gym-fit rather than diet-coke and fags thin.

I think she will disappear to the US soon with Frank. She won't get work out there though as they won't be able to understand her.

Arisbottle Sun 17-Feb-13 20:46:51

Totally unnecessary to judge someone based on their looks but she does have an image issue and finds it difficult to connect . She comes across quite cold for me and lacking in personality.

mynewpassion Sun 17-Feb-13 20:47:04

My pet hate for her was her incessant giggling on Daybreak. That was annoying. Other than that, she's ok.

I think Frank and Elen had already broken up awhile before he got together with Christine.

NoraSpect Sun 17-Feb-13 20:48:28

Yanbu. I can't stand her.

There was no overlap as far as I am aware and I'm addicted to celeb mags
