He or she obviously does a great job - Castle's gnashers are impeccable but all that hard work and training means nothing because Castle has told the world he wants a dentist he can drool even more over grin. I hope the dentist knows it's what inside that counts - unless you're a TV producer or commentator in which case being able to cheer prettily is all that matters grin

Dirty old man! Lol.

It's his wife I feel sorry for.

I'm not a fan.

Cannot STAND that man, he's a smarmy git - hated him on GMTV too - total numpty cardboard cutout presenter

None of us on the tennis threads like him either!

Ta.

Crass comment. He should keep his pearly-filled gob shut.

I too feel sorry for his wife.

He should keep his sexist comments to himself. Surely he should be given a taking to by his bosses for such sexist language said whilst working.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sat 02-Jul-16 14:31:11

Urghh, his poor wife. Mind you ,I bet she's heard a lot worse from him over the years poor woman!

JaneJeffer Sat 02-Jul-16 14:37:03

I can't believe people are getting so het up over his comment. Are we not allowed to say anyone is good looking now? I would be in trouble every day.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sat 02-Jul-16 14:38:18

Mrs Castle?grin

JaneJeffer Sat 02-Jul-16 14:43:00

grin I knew someone would say that!

This is in the context of John Inverdale's comments a couple of years ago about Marion Bartolli not being a looker.

Think what you like, but when your job is commentating, don't comment on looks

What do you mean, Mrs Castle? Have I missed something?

Paniniswapx3 Sat 02-Jul-16 15:19:41

I agree Detestable & have you seen Marion Bartoli recently - shades of Karen Carpenter to me so sincerely hope she is ok. John Inverdale has a lot to answer for & Andrew Castle is just as sexist unfortunately.

Is he the guy who was on Strictly? I thought he was a nasty lecher back then, he was always groping his partner (Ola?). When the other male celebs would put their hand somewhere neutral on their partner like shoulder or hip where it was clothed, he would always grab a bit of skin.

DetestableHerytike Sat 02-Jul-16 15:20:40

Sarcasm, clam - only his wife could stick up for him wink

OlennasWimple Sat 02-Jul-16 15:21:47

He is one of those celebs I don't understand why they have got so much work - what's his appeal?

powershowerforanhour Sat 02-Jul-16 15:23:50

Maybe Andrew's dentist will be too busy checking themselves in their little dental mirror next time to remember to give the local anaesthetic ;-)

angelos02 Sat 02-Jul-16 15:36:17

I read that she wasn't a dentist. Just a dental assistant. Massive difference. By about 5.5 years

DetestableHerytike Sat 02-Jul-16 15:39:13

That was incorrect, angelos. The Daily Express described her as such, she tweeted a correction. She is a dental surgeon.

Not that it's relevant to Castle's sexism either way.

DetestableHerytike Sat 02-Jul-16 15:41:33

Oh, I see that tweeted correction is at the bottom of the article linked in the OP. Heigh ho.

Justmeagain78 Sat 02-Jul-16 16:27:44

The camera was on her so much I guess he felt obliged to say something!

DetestableHerytike Sat 02-Jul-16 16:34:05

Yeah. The weather, maybe?
