he's so irritating
and his makeovers are all crap and samey

Footface Tue 02-Jul-13 21:48:17

It's ok he'll get found out soon and he'll just be relegated to loose woman

RippingYarns Tue 02-Jul-13 21:50:10

And he still calls breasts 'bangers'

He looks way older than 6yrs old to me

Beats me, I can't stand him!

I love women's figures so much that I make them cry in front of a mirror, squeeze them into sausage-skin underwear & make them wear sky high heels...Oh wait hmm grin

I call BS

ggirl Tue 02-Jul-13 21:55:04

everyone in an evening dress or bra and knickers

I look at his "By Gok" crap creations in Sainsburys and think "That guy seriously hates women" hmm

At least he stopped those sneaky nasty camera angles of terrified naked women with self esteem issues. What was that all about?
He needs a makeover himself, that make up he wears is too much.

Who knows why I watched so much of that programme tonight...

"What neckline do you usually wear? Well I'm going to tell you what you can wear..."

"What's your favourite colour?"
"Purple"
"Oh no it doesn't work for you, can't wear purple"

I think he gets away with a lot (bangers!) because he's gay and therefore supposedly non threatening to women. Even though he tells them they can't dress themselves hmm

I'm not convinced he's gay, he seems overly interested in curvy women.

LeGavrOrf Tue 02-Jul-13 22:12:07

God knows.

I think he secretly hates women.

Shortbutsosweet Tue 02-Jul-13 22:12:19

He blanked the skinner woman in first bikini section, the bigger lady in the blue I thought he was gonna slob all over her when he saw her!

He comes across as so insincere. Like a caricature of a TV host - "How are you feeling at the moment? I love you."

I haven't seen one item of his in Sainsbury's that I'd want to wear. And all this calling breasts "bangers" "girls" etc. Makes me want to slap him. It's reductive, it's stupid and it's absolutely not funny. The dress he put the woman who was having a 'make over' into looked more like she was going to a wedding or other do, rather than on holiday. He styled her like Judy Finnigan.

cafenoir-exactly..who the fuck would take that outfit on holiday..especially Butlins

Cherrypie32 Wed 03-Jul-13 14:07:25

I agree, if anything he frumped that poor woman up and made her 'ten years older'.

Cherrypie32 Wed 03-Jul-13 14:08:13

Oh and he didn't call them bangers last night, kept saying get the 'girls' out - awful.

Bumpotato Wed 03-Jul-13 14:23:35

If he's actually properly gay I'll eat my slimming shorts!

Kaluki Thu 04-Jul-13 06:43:11

I think he has serious issues. I'd knock him out if he groped me like that!!
I'm always a bit suspicious of gay men like him. It's like he uses it as an excuse to overstep the boundaries of personal space - it's ok for him to grab your breasts - he's gay after all hmm
And he makes everyone look the same regardless if their personality or personal style.
He's creepy!

Bunbaker Thu 04-Jul-13 06:58:10

He always chooses such impractical and uncomfortable looking clothes. Skin tight jeans that you can't sit down in, shoes you can't walk in, short sleeves that are only suitable for high summer.

I wish he was more realistic and could give sensible style tips on how to look good on the school run in wintery Yorkshire.

He is obsessed with larger ladies as well. Not everyone with body issues is overweight and I wish he showed how women lacking in curves could look good as well.

Oh thank god. I thought i was the only one who thought this.

Every program ends up with a different person in the SAME type of outfit looking like they are off to a wedding not doing the supermarket shop. Its impractical bollocks.

I still like him though....blush

In my defence I never watch his fashion shows, I just like him

Well, I * was* about to jump on this thread and defend him but as I've read these posts I've found myself nodding along and agreeing with them.
Now I'm not so sure confused

Saying that, once I watched a programme about him and how he dealt with being gay and overweight, when they showed a video of him big he called himself a 'fat fuck' which then made me hmm

BinarySolo Thu 04-Jul-13 07:24:07

I think his obsession with big women stems from his own body hang ups and being so big himself in he past. I liked the thing he did about china.

I think he's genuine. I worked in a court where his sister came in as a solicitor and she was lovely.

EliotNess Thu 04-Jul-13 07:33:15

i think he doesnt really style, he has women to do that

EliotNess Thu 04-Jul-13 07:33:56

i do think the message is " youll feel better if you take your clothes off" is a bit hmm
