What do you all think of her? Not seen a lot of her yet so not formed any opinion.

theliverpoolone Mon 21-Jan-13 17:34:31

I think she seems good. Natural, smiley. A million times better than Katie, so hope she's replacing her on the links with Sid etc.

AppleOgies Mon 21-Jan-13 17:37:49

What's her name? DS keeps asking me and I don't know.

She seems okay...

Her name is Cat and she used to be in Hi 5. Took me ages to figure out where I knew her from.

Not fussed tbh. Just another gurning stage school type <shrugs>

JollyRedGiant Mon 21-Jan-13 17:46:34

DH doesn't like her. He reckons she's an interloper and wondered why she dared to interrupt our viewing.

I think he's a little too emotionally involved with cbeebies for a grown adult.

AppleOgies Mon 21-Jan-13 17:46:35

Cat... Right! Must remember for next time DS asks.

She seems to be in the 'trying hard' stage but I do like her. I quite like Katie too though (and I know most MNers don't)... Sid, Andy, Kerry and Alex will always remain my favourites, I hope none of them are leaving.

InkleWinkle Mon 21-Jan-13 18:05:03

Hi 5!! That's where I know her from! I also think she's trying too hard but we're probably all guilty of that when we start a new job smile

According to the Cbeebies blog Sid's off in March so I'm assuming Cat is his replacement sad.

I am also way too involved though, when I saw they had a new person starting I actually panicked in case Alex was leaving!

pictish Tue 22-Jan-13 10:40:14

Sid is leaving?? NOOOOOO!!!!!

Haven't seent the new one yet.

PartTimeModel Tue 22-Jan-13 10:41:07

SID's LEAVING!!!!!!!!!!! Sob!

Bout time there were some fresh faces. It's been the same crew ever since DD1 has been watching Cbeebeeies (now 5). But Sid is our fav ...

pictish Tue 22-Jan-13 10:43:19

I like Alex's face very much. I don't fancy him, but I love his sparkly eyes and gentle manner, and think he's an excellent choice for kids tv. Awwwww!!

theliverpoolone Tue 22-Jan-13 12:59:32

Sid was on Celebrity Mastermind over Christmas - must be looking for ways to branch out from CBeebies.

I`m glad Sids leaving, hope he manages to make a career in mainstream (if thats what he wants to do), I think hes rather lovely smile

Cherrypie32 Tue 22-Jan-13 20:54:40

Sid's touring his own kids show in theatres this year. I like the girl who is in that show they do together 'Let's Play' or something? On about 2.30 when I am usually sleeping watching with DD.

I love Sid, he's great! Sad he's leaving, but I don't watch cBeebies now, but DH wants to check the new presenter out hmm

Noooooooooooo! Sid, you can't leave us!

PartTimeModel Tue 22-Jan-13 22:31:19

On the bright side, maybe we will see more of Sid on grown up TV. wink

CaseyShraeger Wed 23-Jan-13 15:08:54

She's doing pretty well -- most of them were HORRIBLY wooden at first and took a couple of months to settle down, while she's already sounding quite natural (if just a little hyper). But whatever will we do without Sid? shock

Cherrypie32, yes, Rebecca -- I hope we see more of her.

CaseyShraeger Wed 23-Jan-13 15:09:46

(Random fact: Sid's name is actually Gary (I think; it's something beginning with a G that isn't anything like Sid, anyway))

DawnOfTheDee Wed 23-Jan-13 15:11:34

Andy = the 'ice truck killer' from Dexter series 1.

MrsGeologist Wed 23-Jan-13 15:17:21

Katy grew on me eventually. I like her a lot now, and wish she was on a bit more.

I'm glad I've not seen Neesha in a while, she was irritating.

Cat seems very nice so far smile

MrsGeologist Wed 23-Jan-13 15:17:45

Andy = Fatima Whitbread

DawnOfTheDee Wed 23-Jan-13 15:25:08

oh my god you're right MrsGeologist!

Ok, I will amend my post to....

Andy = love child of Fatima Whitbread & the ice truck killer from Dexter

I still like chris and pui ( sp?) best tho.

Gigondas Wed 23-Jan-13 16:24:57

New lady seems good. Katie makes me annoyed- I don't think she hides her inner rage and contempt at being on kids tv too well .

I can't tell if its neesha or daft idea of trailing pandas round nursery I dislike .

Gigondas Wed 23-Jan-13 16:25:31

Dd still in recovery that nina not a real scientist/

Gigondas Wed 23-Jan-13 16:27:18

And who will do the numbers rap now?!!

ShephardsDelight Wed 23-Jan-13 16:29:07

Aw nooo not Sid!

EssexGurl Wed 23-Jan-13 18:38:55

Is Ceri pregnant? I saw new girl yesterday and wondered why they had her, then saw Ceri and wondered if she was expecting and that was why they had Cat.

Gutted about Sid though, hadn't heard that one.

Cherrypie32 Wed 23-Jan-13 20:04:50

Good job Dr Ranj is a real doctor then Gigondas! (I googled that one just yesterday)

Gigondas Wed 23-Jan-13 20:18:32

I knew this and it worries me (for more than just reason i have rhia in my head).

I am sure he is very professional in rl but the image of him singing some of his sub boy band songs about something like verrucas would cloud my ability to take him seriously as a paeditrician.

PartTimeModel Thu 24-Jan-13 10:57:08

"nina not a real scientist"
shock I can't cope with any more
<hides thread>

DameMargotFountain Thu 24-Jan-13 11:03:05

sid is going! [weeps]

<goes to youtube to search for clips of him in pool and save for posterity and leering >

Nooooo!!!!! Sid's the only one left form when my eldest first started to watch CBeebies. They still had the slightly older woman who went on to do the weekend morning ITV slot and the other one who looked perpetually bored, back then, as well as Chris, Pui and a very short haired Sid, before he grew his long dreads and got all buff.

Peekabooooo Thu 31-Jan-13 21:54:52

Cat has only been on a couple of weeks and already prefer her to Cerrie & Katy.
I think Nina would be good but don't know how they'd get round her real name being Katrina.
Just not Neesha, I leave the room when she comes on.
Can't believe Sid is leaving. sad

WellHello Sat 02-Feb-13 15:15:40

I like Cat, she has a lovely friendly way about her.

Arithmeticulous Sat 02-Feb-13 15:22:05

Is Cat the Let's Play one, or the one doing links with Sid and Andy like she can't be trusted to do it by herself

Peekabooooo Sat 02-Feb-13 15:34:58

The one presenting links with Andy and Sid.

Just really noticed new presenter yesterday and today cos DS is miserable with cold and enjoying some tv time. Not a fan of new presenter, sorry Cat. The intensity behind her eyes is turned all the way up to eleven!

Also...SID IS LEAVING??!!! noooo!!!!

BornInACrossFireHurricane Fri 08-Feb-13 09:20:56

I really like Cat. But Sid is leaving?! NOOOOO! Is there a petition we can sign or something?!


MERLYPUSS Fri 08-Feb-13 10:02:58

I am gutted Sid is going.
Katie was just objectionable. I can't put my finger on it but she riled me.
Like Kerry and Alex and Chris and Poi and Andy is ugly attractive if you get my drift. My kids think he's great on Wild Adventures thingy. Not seen much of the new woman.

Rooneyisalwaysmoaning Fri 08-Feb-13 10:04:35

I haven't seen her yet, but as long as it isn't Helen dead-eyes Skelton I don't care.

Katie is just too fake perky for my liking grin

We've moved on to Milkshake on 5 so not seen the new presenter.

Andy may look like the bastard love child of Fatima Whitbread & TITKFDS1 (the ice truck killer from dexter season 1) but I still would!

AlanMoore Fri 08-Feb-13 11:39:14

Rebecca off Let's Play is ace. Cat is wooden. And disappointingly south east English - no northerners allowed on cbeebies except fake ones (bloom/granddad tumble) and James Bolam.

Andy...yeah you so would!!

I also like Rebecca smile

Yes, south of england and very posh all the way!

We've moved onto Milkshake too but on sick days at home like y'day and today you thank god for cbeebies!!
