Is she always like this? confused i dont really follow her stuff. she seems to be struggling to form a coherent sentence, having trouble getting her thoughts out, doesnt seem to be following the discussions. Is that a "ditzy" act or is it out of sorts for her?

I've been watching this and wondering how on earth she even ended up on here tonight. She's really not that clued up on what has been happening in the news, surely that's a must for appearing on this show? But she is rambling a lot without seeming to have much of a point.

Not sure if she's always like this, I don't watch her much, maybe she was underprepared and thought a few wise cracks would be enough to see her through?

Yes this.

Glad it wasnt just me wondering why she was on the show.

Aaah, a play to plug. Surely The One Show would've been better suited. Any opinion, even no opinion, seems to go on there.

I thought she was hilarious but yes, in a completely ditzy way. And she didn't even get to plug her play. It got a 2 second mention at the end!

RudeElf Fri 19-Feb-16 23:28:24

Ahh i was wondering if there was a show or something coming up but i assumed not as i didnt hear it mentioned. Must have missed the final 2 seconds.

RudeElf Fri 19-Feb-16 23:28:45

regeneration is the ditzy and act or is that actually her?

RudeElf Fri 19-Feb-16 23:29:05

An act not and act.

I remember watching her on Never Mind The Buzzcocks when David Tennant was the one off host and she was either completely pissed or off her rocker.

I don't think they need guests on The Last Leg. I watched tonight and hoped nobody else would notice her floundering, as it's the kind of senseless wittering plus muttered jokes I often hope to get away with myself in any discussion. Bollocks.

Yeah i agree, i often forget that they do have guest and get a surprise when they bring them on. They dont need them. The show is great with just the 3 presenters but if they are having guests they need to at least have ones who can have a conversation about whats going on. Its a topical comedy show of the week's events. What did she think she'd be talking about? confused

Yes! At one point I shouted ' use your words'!

Irrelevant woman, they were too clever and quick for her tonight.

I'm not sure. She does it so often when she is herself, yet on the Catherine Tate show and on Doctor Who her comic timing is brilliant, so she's not stupid. She must just be mad as a box of frogs!

The80sweregreat Sat 20-Feb-16 18:50:46

She was struggling. I felt bad watching it! They dont need guests really.

I don't think they need guests on The Last Leg

I take it back: Sue Perkins was absolutely outstanding on tonight's show.

RudeElf Sat 27-Feb-16 00:13:13

Damn! I meant to watch tonight because i love sue perkins! Will have to watch on catch up.

She was ace, I Luffs her a little bit more after she had a mini-rant in support of the doctors!!

she was really bad as a presenter on the travel show she did - I switched off halfway through ep 1 and didn't continue as she was smug, ill-informed and revoltingly Brits-abroad. No interest in cake so can't comment on the only other thing she seems to do.

but last night she was quite good, and certainly better value than Catherine Tate!
