just that really. Obv I dont know him IRL so im only judging on what ive seen on TV. He just seems really rude to all his guests on the show... what does everyone else think? grin

I've worked with him. He's lovely and not a nob at all.

He likes his butter and Yorkshire. He may be a Knobber he's easy on the eye.

I watch SK every Saturday, I've never thought of him as rude.

I don't mind him and I love his show on afterwards.

No, he's really lovely. His show is positively infested with hipsters though! almost as badly as Jamie Oliver's.

He comes across as arrogant and fancying himself, I turn off very quickly when he appears.

WooWooOwl Sat 24-Jan-15 12:15:10

I met him briefly once, he came across as arrogant to me.

BOFster Sat 24-Jan-15 12:15:18

It's funny some people think that- I find him very relaxed and down to earth.

StillStayingClassySanDiego Sat 24-Jan-15 12:15:58

He comes across as arrogant and fancying himself I just don't see this confused.

I also like a cook who looks like they enjoy a pie or two.

I don't think he's rude. He's just a bit blokey with people. It's not as annoying as Jamie Oliver's constant matey/blokiness.

charlingx Sat 24-Jan-15 12:18:10

I must be getting the wrong impression here haha! He just seems to talk over everyone on the show and not really listen to them... I suppose that could be more the producers in his ear rather than rudeness.

I agree with the hipsters comment!

I am in yorkshire, I live in Barnsley so I should be more tolerant wink

Yanbu. Don't know where they got him from but he clearly has v. Little talent and seems IMHO to have been chosen purely as a bit of middle-aged eye candy.... Kind of like the older woman's Jamie?! Also completely does my nut in that even after all this time in the bizz he still seems unable to go more than a few words without blatantly referring to his auto cue..... Gah!!! He must be paid enough - surely it's not asking much that he bothers to learn his lines?! Either that our (& perish the thought) try and inject a little amusing spontaneity and personality into the show... (Can you tell James main is not exactly my favourite TV 'Chef'...!)

StillStayingClassySanDiego Sat 24-Jan-15 12:19:23

I wasn't keen on Luke/Mat Goss this morning , which one was it?

Hallamoo Sat 24-Jan-15 12:20:58

Have just read the whole thread thinking you were talking about Guy Martin, and was totally confused!

As you were....

StillStayingClassySanDiego Sat 24-Jan-15 12:22:26

he clearly has v. Little talent grin seriously?
to have been chosen purely as a bit of middle-aged eye candy, he doesn't do anything for me in the looks department.

LineRunner Sat 24-Jan-15 12:22:50

He seems nice enough to me.

Sparklingbrook Sat 24-Jan-15 12:23:43

I think he's lovely. smile

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeGoes Sat 24-Jan-15 12:23:52

It's not just the arrogant/fancying himself thing either, I find him deeply unattractive, certainly not my type of eye candy.

BOFster Sat 24-Jan-15 12:24:03

How can you say he has little talent? He cooks some lovely food, talks about it knowledgeably, creates great recipes, and seems to put his guests at their ease. I sound like some kind of superfan here- I'm not- but I don't understand how anyone can find him especially objectionable.

iklboo Sat 24-Jan-15 12:24:12

Matt Goss - it looked like he'd either just got out of bed after 20 minutes' sleep, or he's had so much Botox only his lips move. He didn't engage at all.

Love Glyn Purnell being described as one of The Ant Hill Mob though smile.

I didn't watch today. I saw Matt Goss on LG and I thought he had botox and a hair transplant.

charlingx Sat 24-Jan-15 12:26:16

I wasnt keen on Matt Goss until he mentioned the gig he is doing for the cancer patient, found that quite lovely. smile

Whatever happened to Gary Rhodes? Now he was a bit irritating.
