Is the extremely untalented, mediocre and not the least bit entertaining? Just catching up on Ant and Dec, I really love the show but do not get RW at all

also I hate his stupid smug grin

He always reminds me of Norman Wisdom.

just going to be you and me on this one op

I'm 100% with you, I can't see the obsession people have with him, he's irritating & far too smug for my liking, ugh

WooWooOwl Sat 05-Apr-14 22:21:45

I like him, but I agree he doesn't have any particular outstanding talent. The combination of things he does pretty well has led to him having huge success though, so he is clearly doing something right.

Mo, DH actually commented on the shite shows he's willing to do!

He'd turn up to the opening of an envelope, for a bag of cheese n onion grin

Agree OP
Just think it's hilarious that the Gary Barlow is far hotter than him now. although he annoys me too Sweet revenge!

dinkydoodah Sat 05-Apr-14 22:24:41

I agree, beyond dreadful!

YANBU OP. He is total chicken-in-a-basket but unfortunately people seem to love him. People with no taste.

Yanbu.

I agree, although he does look a bit like my husband... confused

I think that mediocrity has great appeal in this day and age. See towie etc.

Needadvice5 Sat 05-Apr-14 22:29:36

I could smack his smarmy face, urgh he makes my skin crawl

He is a very good entertainer. He has done some fantastic original music and isn't afraid to try new music.

Tbf don't watch ant and dec as they are twats so didn't see what inspired this thread. Robbie also sees himself as norman wisdomish.

Im kinda disappointed in Take That all round - Robbie is shit, Gary is a member of the Tory party, Mark is a man slag and Jason has committed himself to looking like an utter tramp. Only Howard has not let me down yet

Bearbehind Sat 05-Apr-14 22:38:09

I love Robbie, ok Rudebox was totally shite and Gary is by far the most talented but it's hard to argue that Robbie isn't a fabulous showman and entertainer.

ILoveTamsinGreig Sat 05-Apr-14 22:38:52

I don't get it either. His songs have some of the shittest lyrics of all time, he isn't physically or aurally attractive and when he speaks he comes across as an arse.

I love him singing that Jungle Book song

But I hate the smug little bastard

Allofaflumble Sat 05-Apr-14 22:41:12

I find RW very irritating and GB so dull. He may have been a great songwriter once but really...the dross he puts out these days!!

TheHamster Sat 05-Apr-14 22:41:59

YANBU, even slimy Gary is better.

joydivisionovengloves Sat 05-Apr-14 22:43:50

YANBU. The attraction is baffling.

SoleSource Sat 05-Apr-14 23:58:30

Robbie was fantastic but now after the drugs he is a bit odd.

Noseypoke Sun 06-Apr-14 00:01:08

YANBU, I can't bear RW.

thebody Sun 06-Apr-14 00:01:23

I agree all I see is Norman Wisdom.

I don't watch Ant'n'Dec, so can't comment on that programme, but Robbie has been a great entertainer over many, many years.
Great songs, lots of different musical styles, fantastic stage presence, consistency.
