And his wife everywhere? Seemingly because they have done what millions of others in the world do? What's the point of them? baffled
Everyone else seems to like them please tell me I'm not alone

I like them. But feel like I shouldn't because they are so sickly sweet and give off such a persona of perfection that I shouldn't like them!

Tom is a singer and his wife an author. They didn't become famous just for having cute kids. They are already famous, therefore their cute kids get a lot of attention. Personally I found their pregnancy timelapse videos adorable, and the video of Buzz laughing at dandelions. I don't know why you're so bitter.

Bitter? I don't see the need to publicise every mundane aspect of life this is true but don't really know why that equates to bitter...

I rather like them, and have only seen him once on TV recently.

Her brother was in TOWIE too. They are driven by a need to be famous.

Sorry - who is Tom Fletcher?

GabiSolis Sun 06-Mar-16 17:15:21

I don't mind them. They are pretty easy to ignore if you don't like them though. Just don't follow them in social media or read articles about them.

I feel the same! People are forever sharing their stuff on Facebook, and it's so sweet and lovely and perfect and yes I am bitter because my children are probably screaming and my bottom is big and I have never finished the novel I am convinced would be a best seller and my husband is a data analyst and not a pop star.

VertigoNun Sun 06-Mar-16 17:15:48

He is from a blended 2000 boyband regroup.

YANBU. I loved McFly, but Tom Fletcher has become the most irritating person on Earth since getting married/reproducing. I would also like to make comment on the choice of baby names - however it's probably a step too far and I will get flamed..... (Buzz and Buddy though... seriously?)

13y DD loves them, and all the social media stuff.

I see far less of it as I don't follow them on social media in the same way - so only see what DD comments on or likes.

However, I do think its all fairly harmless and definitely easy to avoid if you don't like it. DH never sees any of it as he doesn't do social media. Its not like its all over proper news, etc after all.

I'd rather that than some of the other stuff some celebs post about, or some of the other stuff on social media, thats for sure. At least it is all nice harmless, happy family stuff!

And they are not famous for having children. Tom is a singer and song writer and Giovanna is an author. They publish this sort of stuff because their fans like it I presume - if no one looked or watched, they wouldn't post it after all.

I have no idea who he is, so he can't be that unavoidable. I watch loads of telly and read the news several times a day. I must be good at avoiding outlets for the fame-hungry.

sharonthewaspandthewineywall Sun 06-Mar-16 17:17:43

I don't follow them yet see them everywhere

HolgerDanske Sun 06-Mar-16 17:17:44

Tom was amazing when he did The Cube. Really good.

Other than that, I suppose their videos aren't really everywhere, are they?

Wardrobespierre Sun 06-Mar-16 17:18:06

Where is it you're seeing this man? Is it in a magazine you can close or on a television channel you can change? He hasn't bothered me once. grin

Thatrabbittrickedme Sun 06-Mar-16 17:18:16

I have absolutely no idea who Tom Fletcher is! I conclude he is vey easy to avoid, I've done it without even trying grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 06-Mar-16 17:18:23

I shouldn't like them, I really shouldn't. The cringey wedding speech, the pumpkin carving pregnancy announcement, and the 'player 2' thing. But they seem a nice enough couple even if they do vlogs and shove their child out there for all to see which is one of my pet hates sleb wise.

It's all about Dougie Poynter for me anyway. grin

Hulababy Sun 06-Mar-16 17:18:45

Tom Fletcher is a singer and song writer. He is in the band McFly, and was also in the blended band of McBusted. He is also a song writer and has written songs for other bands also such as One Direction and Busted. He has also cowritten some children's books with one of his McFly band members.

bruffin Sun 06-Mar-16 17:19:20

I think they are lovely,dd 18 adores them and they are good role models. Its easy to ignore if you dont like it. I only see the videos because dd shows me.

MistressMerryWeather Sun 06-Mar-16 17:20:51

YANBU.

I have felt very 'shaddap already' about them recently.

sharonthewaspandthewineywall Sun 06-Mar-16 17:21:10

I like several general pages on Facebook and there are umpteen things about them. I can't just avoid them sadly. It baffles me as to their need for attention all the time tbh

HolgerDanske Sun 06-Mar-16 17:21:44

I liked the wedding speech, heh. All the thoughtfulness he put into it and having the Sylvia Conti school choir sing because of the significance of it, and just the whole romance and cosiness aspect of it. But I do cringe inside at it, really. It's some kind of guilty pleasure grin
