Anyone else find him mildly offensive and hugely irritating for no apparent reason? Get that patronising 'feel'?

nah

AgentZigzag Sat 06-Apr-13 00:13:34

I can't watch enough of him because I can never get why other people find him so offensive.

SneezingwakestheJesus Sat 06-Apr-13 00:14:11

I lurve him. Ever since the David Blaine interview.

DioneTheDiabolist Sat 06-Apr-13 00:14:31

I think he's hilarious.

floatyflo Sat 06-Apr-13 00:15:24

Yup. I always feel for his wife/partner on this morning.

He can be so rude to her sometimes but its always sly and underhand.

And you just see her cringing at the things he comes out with sometimes

tethersend Sat 06-Apr-13 00:16:35

I disagree.

I think he is a massive, massive cunt.

Somethingtothinkabout Sat 06-Apr-13 00:20:21

I always get a really uncomfortable feeling about him. I suspect he is not a nice guy in real life.

Did he not say something on tv that was really offensive a few years ago?

I remember my righteous indignation about it and how it proved he was a git, but can't remember what it was.

jinsymaw Sat 06-Apr-13 00:21:10

I think, that's part of his brusque charm, that he takes the mickey out of everyone including, wifey,Judith. Though you know he thinks the world of her. Give me Down to earth Eamon, over the rest of the toothy white smoothies. But to each his own.

WorraLiberty Sat 06-Apr-13 00:21:48

Can't have been that bad then Something grin

I take him or leave him

WorraLiberty Sat 06-Apr-13 00:22:14

Isn't his wife called Ruth?

floatyflo-reminds me of why I wouldn't work with my dhsmile

Not that he's anything LIKE Eamonn Holmes, but imagine the arguments when you both got home.....grin

No comment on Eamonn, Only seen snippets of the programme, and the bickering, so wouldn't be fair to comment.

AndFanjoWasHisNameO Sat 06-Apr-13 00:27:39

Was it when it came out that he'd bullied Anthea Turner? He called her Princess Tippytoes or similar made me like him even more
I like him and his Missus together-they have quite the double act going on.

ClartyCarol Sat 06-Apr-13 00:28:30

God yes, what the actual fuck does Ruth see in him?

Caught him on TM a few weeks ago leching over some actress in Hollyoaks wesring bright red lippy. After the clip finished he turned to Ruth and smarmed something about "Don't you think if you wore lipstick like that your life would be so much... [tailed off obviously realising he was going to sound like a prize prick]...better?". She just gave him a withering "Er no, that's not me at all" and moved swiftly on.

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Sat 06-Apr-13 00:31:19

He's an arrogant arse.

That is all.

howdoo Sat 06-Apr-13 00:31:33

Agree - there's something about him that makes me think he's a nasty, angry, resentful little bully in his home life. I think it's because he'd like to look like Brad Pitt but he looks like, um, Eamonn Holmes!

SquirrelNuts Sat 06-Apr-13 00:32:00

I dont like him or Ruth, i usually have this morning on, whilst doing all my hosuework, obviously! But i dont bother with it when its them too, both bloody irritating!

AgentZigzag Sat 06-Apr-13 00:32:12

I've only ever seen him on his own on Sky News, maybe if I saw him with his wife I'd get the creepy Richard Madley vibe going on?

Or is that just Richard Madley's creepy vibe?

sjupes Sat 06-Apr-13 00:47:45

I'd honestly take richard over eamon any day - i dislike him and ruth although at one point they were both as smarmy and cuntish as each other.

I think they paired them together to make her seem nice at least compared to him.

I tend not to watch these days as it's gone so downhill but especially when those two are on.

ClartyCarol Sat 06-Apr-13 00:49:42

I find Ruth to be pretty inoffensive really.

WorraLiberty Sat 06-Apr-13 00:54:52

I have to say I totally burst out laughing when he described Anthea Turner as Princess Tippy Toes.

That's exactly how I'd thought of her for years.

If that's his experience of working with her then good on him for saying so.

roundtheback Sat 06-Apr-13 01:01:36

He's not actually very good though. I had a day off today and caught a bit of it, I actually felt embarrassed watching him. It's cringeworthy.

But yes, I suspect his assessment of Anthea Turner was somewhat accurate grin

AgentZigzag Sat 06-Apr-13 01:05:54

I used to quite like Richard and Judy when it was on, but I can't help but notice Madelys hair has taken on a sinister quality in recent years.

It's just Not Right, and makes my skin crawl in the same way a 'rat tail' down the back would before I got the scissors out and did them a favour

K8Middleton Sat 06-Apr-13 01:08:31

He's a shit bag. So yabu to say he's mildly irritating. He is an obnoxious, arrogant shit bag. Although he speaks very highly of me.

AgentZigzag Sat 06-Apr-13 01:10:34

'He's a shit bag. So yabu to say he's mildly irritating. He is an obnoxious, arrogant shit bag. Although he speaks very highly of me.'

Aren't you worried he'll find out you've been badmouthing him on the internet again Ruth? grin
