I quite like her, but there's something about that Elnett ad that makes me cringe. I can't my finger on it, she just seems a bit... uncomfortable...

They all seem uncomfortable in Loreal adverts

I dislike her intensely so am the wrong person to be objective! She always looks wooden to me.

Probably the realisation that she is endorsing a company that tests on animals?

Well she can't act, thats why she looks so wooden!

Its the Geordie accent, sounds awful on TV. Makes me cringe every time I see that advert.

I'm a Geordie and I love it grin The accent, not her lol

Oh I'm a Geordie as well grin, I just don't like the broad accents on telly, sounds odd. Ant and Dec can totally pull it off though, and Val from Emmerdale wink

YABabitU - she was fine on camera in X Factor. But she's not an actress or even a model and it shows in the ad. I think a slightly faster cut woud have helped though - it's the pauses between each phrase that make it seem so wooden ("work it... style it... brush it... sod it..." etc).
