So bloody OTT!
Is it just me?

Otherwise it would be on my viewing list. Now I have to do chores instead.sad

No YANBU!! She is the most irritating person on TV. I cannot bear the way she peers out from under that ridiculous fringe with those overly made up eyes. And the silly little girl routine. She's 41 FFS!!! Am recording Bake Off, but I might not bother to watch if she's on it!!

Cant stand her. Sophie Winkleman however is who I want to look like when I grow up, AND she is married to a Lord!

YABU. She's fabulous slight girl crush

ceeveebee Thu 24-Jan-13 20:58:07

I love her and want to be her friend

flossy101 Thu 24-Jan-13 20:59:10

I love her.

Selks Thu 24-Jan-13 20:59:42

She came across as deranged, frankly. That 'high five' at Paul Hollywood oh dear!

WorraLiberty Thu 24-Jan-13 21:00:21

I desperately want to cut her fringe

Emilythornesbff Thu 24-Jan-13 21:06:10

"I am literally going to lick your face" by CW to Paul Hollywood? Followed by the Davina McCall silent open mouthed (OMG!).
blush
Sorry to those who love, not meaning to cause upset.

I love her too. Sorry but YABU - she makes Strictly bearable. Clearly slightly unhinged but that's what I love about her.

Butkin Thu 24-Jan-13 21:08:30

YANBU I can't understand her popularity. Hate her fringe, overly black hair and general turnout combined with her over the top stupidity. Paul so went up in my estimation for not falling for her faux flirting.

Oh I love her.

I love her but really you can't bake with those long sleeves & surely hair should be tied back (maybe a netwink )

But seriously the only reason she dropped her pie was because she can't see through her fringe...grin

I think god like Paul thought her deranged always backing away whilst keeping eye contact wink

MrsBungleBear Thu 24-Jan-13 21:25:15

Why oh why has she got that ridiculous fringe? It HAS to be annoying. It makes me uncomfortable to watch her!

timidviper Thu 24-Jan-13 21:27:47

I hate her, find her extremely irritating and do not understand how someone of her limited capabilities has become as successful as she is. Maybe being well connected helps said she not at all cynically

RedPencils Thu 24-Jan-13 21:27:59

The fringe is her thing. Just be thankful she's given up the white lipstick.

badtemperedaldbitch Thu 24-Jan-13 21:29:40

I think it she shaved her bushy brows with a razor, so now she has a completely hairy forehead. It's not a fringe at all!

WhateverTrevor Thu 24-Jan-13 21:32:21

I love her a lot, but I can't stand Davina. I think Claudia is really quirky and being herself. Davina just tries too hard and is unnatural .

Andcake Thu 24-Jan-13 21:38:08

Hate her so fake. Lol ( well evil witch cackled) when her lemon meringue pie split made not turning over because she was on it worth it!

Cherriesarelovely Thu 24-Jan-13 21:39:42

I am completely with you OP. She seems so affected and that flipping fringe.....!

PenelopeChipShop Thu 24-Jan-13 22:10:23

Yanbu! I felt the same but watched it anyway as I love the Bake Off and it was on during the magic hour when my ds sleeps and I get to chill! I thought she would ruin it but I did laugh when she dropped her pie. What I can't stand is that she seems to think she's so zany and crazy and original. She needs to calm down!

sukysue Thu 24-Jan-13 22:16:15

I competely agree with you she has spoilt tonights prog for all of my family.stupid bitch.

Jumblemum Thu 24-Jan-13 22:22:20

YABU, she's funny and does anyone else agree that Mary may have had a teeny crush on Ed Byrne? I thought tonight's episode was great....

NigellasGuest Thu 24-Jan-13 22:25:59

YANBU - we didnt watch Bake Off tonight because CW was in it. Unbelievably irritating woman, and my DDs scream whenever she comes on screen because they find her look so odd.
