I have never been so irritated by someone on the telly. Saw it for first time in ages today and she is so bloody patronising. Is it just me who doesn't see the appeal. DS age four and I 'disagreed' on her talent but I really feel she is talking down to him and the other children. I know I clearly need to get a life but keen to know am not the only one who wants to tell her and her fruity dance to eff off

Agree about creepy Justin - look what he's done to that lovely Sarah Jane....

Holy crap! That's so strange as I used to say she had a dark side that one and hated DS watching wobbly wibbly house or whatever it was called . I think it was her built up shoes that alerted me

I like her. Obviously the style would seem patronising to an adult but I think she presents well for children.

Oh I am so glad I am not the only one who feels she needs a slap.. I cannot stand her annoying patronising and false ways.. I would also love to kick professor poet from rhyme rocket in his teeth he is sooooo damn annoying smile

I also find Justin v annoying and weird I want to throw a brick at my tv every time I hear "mr tummmmble" aarrggghh

Whatalotofpiffle Wed 12-Jun-13 07:32:58

Ha ha I quite like her and her new baby bump! Love the book too..

Love a good tv personality hate thread smile

Only read the title, but YANBU. She makes me irrationally want to throw things at the TV screen.

2yo DS3 agrees with me. Every time she starts talking, he starts shouting "NO NO NO NO NO" at the TV, and wagging his finger at her repeatedly until I turn the TV over or off...

She is just so effing patronising. She reminds me of the presenters on Playdays (from around 20-25 years ago) that I had to suffer with my Dbro!

<<Fights irrational urge to stuff her face with one of her dubious creations and lock her into her caravan...>>

<<Shudders>> Sarah Jayne...

Me and my Ex had a running Joke about Justin doing Sarah Jayne as soon as the cameras stopped rolling. The only way to be that perpetually fucking cheerful is to be at it like a rabbit.

Maybe she left Cbeebies when Justin stopped rogering her? winkgrin

And as for her with her bunches...

But yes, that Nissha from Same Smile makes me want to do unspeakable things with a panda!

I thought I was past the Cbeebies stage, but then had DS3 when DS2 was 7yo. Bad move.

I have now been forced to view Cbeebies in all it's forms since the Tweenies hit it big in 1999. And probably have a few years left to go yet...

Urgh. 14 years of sodding Cbeebies...

Its the zombie thread that wont die!

She irritates me, but not quite to stabbiness. DH is in love with her.

I had the misfortune to watch Nina and the Fucking Pigtails the other day, the road building one... oh the fantasies I was having involving that lovely road roller and the overly chirpy pigtails.

I very rarely have cbeebies on as it does my head in but DD1's been an absolute bugger teething so I've resorted to it on a few occasions recently.

They're ALL dead behind the eyes though.

Funniest I saw was I Can Cook on a beach in the north east (was it Tynemouth? I forget but I know I recognised it at the time) - obviously on a freezing cold day but desperately trying to go for the "wooo we're on the beach with our buckets and spades" thing - it was hilarious!

My mum had cbeebies on when she was down here - she's still traumatised by what they've done to Postman Pat - although the bit in the opening credits where all the parcels parachute from the air does remind me of my own postman's routine of chucking stuff over back gates, but without the parcels - so perhaps they updated it for factual accuracy.

I did buy our house as this street have octagonal windows in the corner of the bedroom and the next street down have diamond shaped windows and it appealled to my PlaySchool nostalgia senses though.

Our county speech therapists I swear are being paid commission by Mr Fucking Tumble - the number of "so mummies, this is baby signing and these are a list of makaton signs you already know but are sitting through yet again" sessions our local Children's Centre have tacked onto baby groups where I've sat and had to listen to them wax lyrical about how amazing his show is is nuts.

She does my head in.

I am sure my husband has a crush on her though.

Lovelygoldboots Wed 12-Jun-13 11:03:51

She will be on mat leave soon and join us here. She can go back on cbeebies swearing her head off and cooking with Billy bear ham and pom bears grin

I love Katy. I remember reading one of her tweets about staying in a youth hostel in Europe while travelling, and praying it was the same one me and OH were staying in. blush

I've just watched the strawberry episode. She's magnificent.

MiaowTheCat Thu 01-Aug-13 18:49:07

Was watching something on telly the other night (that OCD camp thing) and they had Dr Ranj on it being all serious and proper doctory.

Except all I had running through my head everytime he opened his mouth was the poo song. "NHS resources and budget cuts... where does your poo-oooo come from... funding issues..."

Bit of a latecomer to this particular thread but for some reason, kids have chosen cBeebies over Cartoonito today. I am amazed - but pleased - to find that I'm not the only mum that has such varied and hilarious views on these programmes and their em, presenters. confused

Rhyme Rockets - why?!? I mean, seriously, WHY?! I can't explain the rage I feel when that programme comes on. I hate them with a passion yet I can't not watch.

I'm almost glad my kids started choosing Cartoonito over cBeebies but on that note, has anyone noticed how fucking annoying those bratty kids from Cartoonito Karaoke are?

whitepuddingsupper Fri 06-Jun-14 14:18:07

Yes I hate the bloody cartoonito karaoke and those bloody fairy tales, fuck off Jane Horrocks your voiceover skills are shite.

I used to hate Katie until I met her in reality. She was absolutely lovely and took loads of time talking to my dds.

LoblollyBoy Fri 06-Jun-14 16:21:43

Can I just say, attheendof before someone shouts at us for resurrecting this thread, that I did find your comment to be a very helpful contribution. Thanks for that, it will help me next time I have to watch ICC.

CommanderShepard Fri 06-Jun-14 17:28:16

My husband is in love with Nina and her scary eye shadow. He would like to do inappropriate things with her and her neurons...

PumpkinPie2013 Fri 06-Jun-14 19:08:50

YANBU - she sets my teeth on edge angry

Topsy and Tim also really grate on me!

Unfortunately my 3 year old nephew loves them (and Mr Tumble!).
