just saying...

Ooh I don't know. I don't find him very warm. Can't put my finger on it. But I love Ant and Dec.

CundtBake Tue 20-May-14 20:15:13

I cannot stand him. So fake and desperate to be famous. He's ruined catchphrase for me!!

EatMyFoodFeelMyFork Tue 20-May-14 20:21:09

YANBU, I think he's awesome! grin

Sparklingbrook Tue 20-May-14 20:21:20

He's a bit plastic if that's the right word. Bit insincere.

MuttonCadet Tue 20-May-14 20:22:44

No, I'm not a fan of A&D but there's something about Stephen that I just find uncomfortable to watch.

I dunno about him. Like others, I think he comes across insincere.

I agree Cundt - the desperation to be loved and recognised oozes his every pore. Will never be as good as A&D in a million years. Reminds me of Jonathan Wilkes.

Stephen Mulhern is deeply creepy. He has a big, sinister, shiny face, it shines with evil. I bet he skins hamsters for fun.

He's horrible. He laughs in a nasty way at people in the behind the scenes of BGT in a way that the more empathic Ant and Dec never do. He laughs at them, not with them.

The mystery is why he is employed, what on earth has he got on Simon Cowell that keeps him there (much like Louis).

IDugUpADiamond Tue 20-May-14 20:29:48

Really??? I mean don't get me wrong, I love Ant and Dec, but I love Mulhern's deadpan humour. I've never seen catchphrase though...

Sparklingbrook Tue 20-May-14 20:34:21

Catchphrase is terrible.

CrapBag Tue 20-May-14 21:06:07

I like him. He's really funny and I don't think he mocks acts in a nasty way at all. He's good friends with Ant and Dec as well.

Sparklingbrook Tue 20-May-14 21:08:20

I think he seems the sort that couldn't take a joke.

Syphilis is funnier than Ant and Dec

Rivercam Tue 20-May-14 21:16:29

We love his sense of humour on BGT. I don't find it mocking but good fun.

He's absolutely awful. Saw him live years ago at a girlguiding event and he was terrible (that said, every fucker presenter who got involved with those events made a hash of it).

littlejackiepaper Tue 20-May-14 23:40:05

He tries way too hard to be like David Brent. It's a bit awkward!

Karen81 Wed 21-May-14 11:49:16

littlejackiepaper I am so glad you said that, I thought I was the only person who noticed it!

I think he genuinely realised he's got a great gift of a job and is just desperate to keep it. He's been doing it 8yrs so a) there's a pretty big audience b) he's done quite well really and c) fast forward him after recording it.

Sky plus. Marvellous invention for this kind of thing. He is funny at times and he plainly sees and gets the joke. I think it's one of the better secondary shows tbh.

All three of them make me want to stick pins in my eyes, tbh.

I don't know why there is so much hype about Ant & Dec and I don't like Stephen Mulhern either.

All overrated imho!

squoosh Wed 21-May-14 11:55:06

He just seems so desperate. It almost wafts through the screen.

Ploppy16 Wed 21-May-14 11:57:18

Dick &Dom beat all 3 in this house. Apart from Ask the family. That was shite.
Da Bungalow made early Saturday mornings worth it!

BrokenToeOuch Wed 21-May-14 12:17:47

I don't like him at all, I'm surprised to see so many others the same as me though as my dds thimm he's good. He has a weird waxy face and I really dislike some of his pointed looks to the camera. I find him very try hard and cringey. Sorry SM!

Herecomesthesciencebint Wed 21-May-14 12:34:27

My friend worked at CITV when SM was a presenter early on in his career and he came round for supper one night to the house she shared with me who was an A&E doctor and our flatmate who was an accountant.
SM arrived with I kid you not, a signed photo of himself IN A FRAME that he handed over with no sense of irony it seems. He suggested it was to go in our hall. Id never even heard of him!
