Not sure exactly why but I really cannot stand,her and,she ruins dancing on ice for me.

She just seems,too much of a WAG and really false. I don't feel like she,cares about any of the contestants on the show and is way too thin. She's not a good,presenter either.

What do others think?

Jesus, she's too skinny, she's too orange, she "stole" her boyfriend, people can't understand her accent - fuck me I'm not her biggest fan but its all a bit extreme isn't it? So don't watch?

Yeah, it was realising she was to thin that done it for me too, how dare she be so?

cleoowen Sun 17-Feb-13 20:53:17

Ok let's stick to the other opinions I have said on the original post then. Her being too thin was more of an after thought.
not wanting a argument about that.

I thought she dated frank way after he split from his wife but could be wrong. Not got anything against what she does in her own,life just get her off,the TV!

She tries too hard,to seem like she cares and,is fun,and nice like laughing in interviews and touching contestants hands but it just seems so fake.

Think holly left to have her baby.

What a horrid bitchy thread this is. hmm

I can't stand her either. Shes very wooden and its so obvious shes reading off a script. She doesn't connect with either the audience or the contestants, or even the judges, because no empathy shines through. I don't think shes talented. Maybe she needs further training or something - is there a charm school for tv presenters?

Aesthetically, I don't think shes attractive either as her face is strangely wrinkled for her age, but then Frank Lampard is hardly a looker. Although actually I can't stand the female presenters as barbie doll thing on these reality tv programmes - Tess Daly being a prime example, although not as bad a presenter.

Can't stand Philip Schofield either. I so wish the talented and charismatic Jane Torville and Christopher Dean, with their amazing chemistry, could simply present the entire programme! Both look fantastic too.

I find how orange she is a bit off putting, but she's not too skinny in my opinion. Some of the posts on this thread are ridiculous, wishing death on her?! Nice!

MechanicalTheatre Sun 17-Feb-13 21:05:52


If you don't like her, don't watch.

She "stole" Frank Lampard? How did she "steal" him? Is he a fucking object without a brain of his own?

She is "too thin"? But no doubt if she was bigger than a size six, there'd be people saying she was too fat.

She has a horrible accent? I suppose it was so much better when there was nothing but RP on the telly.

I am really glad that I'm not a woman in the public eye.

Thingiebob Sun 17-Feb-13 21:07:47

I always thought she was quite an accomplished presenter.

I have no strong feelings about her looks or her private life.

WorraLiberty Sun 17-Feb-13 21:08:50

And still people think low self esteem and eating disorders in young women are down to the media and the 'menz'....

What a nasty thread.

By all means criticise her work but her body and her love life?

She has a fake posh NI accent which I detest, im from NI and can't stand people who sound that way. So for that reason I don't watch her at all.

noviceoftheday Sun 17-Feb-13 21:17:20

Wow OP. not a lot going on in your life then? hmm

I think mechanicaltheatre said it all. Nasty thread.

ErikNorseman Sun 17-Feb-13 21:20:50

YANBU. She's odd looking, all fake tan and huge tombstones veneers. She has no talent or charisma.

MechanicalTheatre Sun 17-Feb-13 21:22:52

Gosh, this thread is really opening my eyes.

Updating my spreadsheet here.

Shenanagins Sun 17-Feb-13 21:23:06

She didn't steal frank lampard from Ellen rives. She had binned him after he was caught being unfaithful.

MechanicalTheatre Sun 17-Feb-13 21:25:39

Obviously she didn't "steal" him because one does not "steal" human beings unless we are talking about a kidnap situation.

Are we to believe that in addition to her other crimes of having a face and a body and teeth that people don't approve of, she is also a possible kidnapper?

landofsoapandglory Sun 17-Feb-13 21:26:49

I'd love to see pictures of all you perfect women!

She is pretty harmless I think. But then if she, or any other presenter for that matter, annoyed me as much as she seems to annoy a lot of you I would use the off button on my remote, or turn over and watch something else!

the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog

GetOrf Sun 17-Feb-13 21:28:55


Fucking hell. Perhaps I am being a mealy mouthed twat but I'm reporting that for its sheer vileness.

FWIW I don't watch anything she is in but I think she seems pleasant, is good looking and has a lovely accent. Why the hatred?

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Sun 17-Feb-13 21:31:44

YANBU, i can't stand her either, but......i had a dream about Frank Lampard last week and if it is true she's a very lucky woman blush

saladcreamwitheverything Sun 17-Feb-13 21:36:44

I don't find her particularly offensive, i think she does an okay job. I don't think she deserves the insults she's got on this thread!

YABU at still watching "Dancing on Ice"!!!! Definitely past it's best especially since Shayne Ward got booted off the other week


TheCraicDealer Sun 17-Feb-13 21:38:25

My boss' wife worked with her when she was in BBC NI in a back room role. Apparently she's lovely, a nice person who came back for an ex colleague's wedding this summer, despite not seeing them for years. That doesn't sound like someone who steps on people on their way to the top.

chickensarmpit Sun 17-Feb-13 21:42:32

I can't stand the woman and I turn the channel over if she pops up. Why on earth is she still in the public eye? She should slither back under her rock.

cleoowen Sun 17-Feb-13 21:43:01

Novice. I have alot going on in my life thanks very much. A 9 week old keeps me busy. It was just a light hearted thread about someone who's presenting skills I dislike and so does seem to wind,me up, unnecessarily I guess. I retracted my opinion about her weight so do not think my post is nasty. I am simply stating an opinion. Others on the,thread have made personal comments about her not me.

I simply was discussing the fact that for me she goes some way towards ruining a show,I like. I cannot understand how she managed,to get into presenting, especially in such popular shows.
