Is pathetic and self serving and nauseating. I hadn't realised her marriage started as an affair.

I dislike her even more now.

Not watching it.
I didn't think I could like her less but seems I'm mistaken.

That means he now has vacancy for a mistress.

Have switched off. I wanted to see what she would say about Saville but I can't watch any more. Setting herself as a paragon of justice and morality hmm

I'm not sure whether I like her or not yet - will watch the rest to see what, if anything, she has to say about JS.

He's deceased Pedalleur - she has painted their marriage as perfect for many, many years. A bloody sham.

'unjustifiably annoyed' grin

Yes I thought that, its such a lame excuse to say 'we tried but we just couldn't be apart'

umm try harder then hmm

I think you need to get over yourselves.

I bet they don't mention JS!

This is what made me confused

He's dead. He's been dead for years and she has grieved bitterly.

I think you should be ashamed of yourself OP.

She's expert in attempting to justify the unjustifiable.

Watching her wriggle over her admission she'd heard rumours of Jimmy Savile's activities and done nothing even when she was head of Childline was utterly nauseating.

She is loathsome.

her husband is dead It takes 2 people to break up a relationship tbh her husband wasn't innocent either,

Good god!! How

Given that she was married to Desmond for many many years, it seems they were right for each other. Some marriages do fail...

thebody Fri 22-Feb-13 21:42:28

Old r u all. I watched that's life as a kid and she was pregnant with his child then.

That's eons ago.. But yes he was married when they got together.

Mrsrobertduvall Fri 22-Feb-13 21:43:12

Oh for goodness sake, people have affairs for many reasons. And at least they stayed together and were very happy, it wasn't a quick legover.

thebody Fri 22-Feb-13 21:43:14

He's been dead years and years btw.

yes their daughters were grown ups or almost when he died , they were together for years why do people watch programmes about people they dont like YABU for watching piers morgan he is a knob

If I happened to be one of the three adult children to read this sort of shite I'd be fucking furious.

eminemmerdale Fri 22-Feb-13 21:46:43

Are you then?

Fleecyslippers Fri 22-Feb-13 21:49:04

Many people have affairs.
Few people are like Esther Rantzen and set themselves up as champions of all that is right and good and paint a persona of being beyond reproach. Have your affair. Just stop trying to justify it.
