Decide to treat myself to a dollop of culture on a Friday night only to find that slithery toad plastered on my screen. The heavens should have warned me.

What a vile pompous man.

I want to like him, because his sister seems so lovely. But he makes it rather difficult.

Have just realised that the Review Show is filmed in Glasgow. I am in Glasgow. I may have inadvertently breathed the same air as him this evening.

I'm not his No 1 fan.

Hahahaha. Yes he's what is commonly known as an "arrogant dick". Look it up in the dictionary.

So turn the TV over!

squoosh Fri 19-Oct-12 23:35:18

The channel has been turned and yet my corneas burn.

He's petulant, but funny.

squoosh Fri 19-Oct-12 23:40:18

Giles has such lovely manners.

Demonstrated to best effect into those ranting emails he sent to his sub editors. It's a scandal they were leaked ;-)

To be fair, the subs did ruin his Nosh Gag.

squoosh Fri 19-Oct-12 23:47:55

Be gone apologists!

wildfig Fri 19-Oct-12 23:49:28

Is he managing to shoehorn as many references to his wife, Esther, and his child, Kitty, on the Review Show as he does in his restaurant reviews?

squoosh Fri 19-Oct-12 23:51:33

He did mention his wife!

To be fair he probably can't believe anyone agreed to marry him.

I follow his wife on twitter as it turns out. Apparently she essentially puts up with him because he never repeats an anecdote ergo I assume she finds him at least entertaining if not funny
I went off him after he tweeted a woman,who had said something about him he took umbrage to,that she was a "barren bitter ugly old crone". An ever so slightly delicate (and colossal) ego going on there I think.

I think he is gorgeous smile. Sorry I missed him now.

I turned it on, didn't realise it was him and wondered who the hot guy in the suit was. Then I felt very embarrassed. He mentioned his wife "who is ten years younger than I am". He kept interrupting the woman next to him in the five minutes I watched. So I turned over.

He is without a single redeeming feature as far as I can see. Has said some choice/racist things about Polish people.p

wildfig Sat 20-Oct-12 00:13:09

I read somewhere that GC admitted to being both colossally rude yet also hypersensitive to criticism, which is such an unfortunate personality combo for a opinion writer that it actually sounds like something the Bad Fairy would wish on Sleeping Beauty. 'You shall be unable to keep your savage opinions to yourself... but you will also wake up in the night tormented by what @yummyhunni43 said about your column on Twitter! Ah hahahahaha!'

UltraBOF Sat 20-Oct-12 00:15:37

That sounds about right, wildfig. He really needs a thicker skin, and to stop being so vile out of defensiveness. It just makes him look like such a primadonna.

winnybella Sat 20-Oct-12 00:17:15

Oh, yes, the anti-Polish rant, I remember it well. Yes, all the 'Polacks' (as he called them) loved burning Jews alive for fun in the WWII hmm Terrible article it was, actually, misinformed, racist, just vile. Prick.

I like his sister, though.
