There's a huge advert for her new album at the top of the page. AIBU to not see the point of her?

She lacks expertise or tenacity in any area, just flits from one thing to another and comes out of the woodwork when she needs some cash. I see no talent within her.

Don't buy her album then.

And your low opinion of her is worthy of a thread because........

You mean she acts and sings like many people do? Often it's a requirement of stage school in fact.
I don't get your animosity. Don't buy her album that'll teach her.

I agree with you OP, I remember watching her on some celebrity TV show years ago and she came across as though she was above everyone else.

When really she's only known for being on Eastenders in the 90s.

whiteroseredrose Sun 20-Aug-17 05:35:32

So basically she's no worse than a million others on TV!

Tiptoethr0ughthetulips Sun 20-Aug-17 06:15:08

I agree completely, never liked her. She comes across really fake and insincere to me. Average voice and poor acting ability, I don't know who would actually buy and listen to her album, but then again people buy Jane McDonald's albums.

my irk is ia got an email saying she sent me message on twitter after following one of her was a automatic one telling me about her album.this turned me agasint her.the cheak.

Not really a fan, but I don't begrudge her giving it another go, doesn't affect me in any way.
At least she's had some kind of actual career.
I'm personally sick of seeing stories about people who have literally no claim to fame or discernible talent, other than they are desperate to be celebrities.
I don't watch it, but the line up for things like "C"BB always consists of at least two people who are only classed as "celebrities " because they were on another reality show.
Giving people a Brazilian in front of a camera hardly equates to three years at drama school.

IndianaMoleWoman Sun 20-Aug-17 06:39:41

I'm not a great fan but a least she actually does something, unlike many current celebrities.

I think the irritation comes from Mumsnet choice of advert.

Obviously McCutcheon's marketing team have decided to plough marketing assets towards Mumsnet in the hope that we are targets for such a product.
A poor choice on Mumsnets part as it diminishes the Mumsnet product, but I am sure it is lucrative to Mumsnet HQ.

"When really she's only known for being on Eastenders in the 90s."

And getting an Olivier award for her performance at the National Theatre.

If she was working in a different field, living in your street, this kind of petty pointless moaning about a woman doing her job would sound purely bitchy.

Never had anything against her, but I've been annoyed to see her pouting at me on this site over the past few weeks or so.

MissionItsPossible Sun 20-Aug-17 07:10:46

I think she looks more lost than found in the photo

FizzyCherry Sun 20-Aug-17 07:12:56

I thought that, Mission. It's not the best advert I ever saw but I just ignore things I'm not bothered about.....

Justgivemesomepeace Sun 20-Aug-17 07:13:59

She's just trying to make a living. Turn the telly over and don't listen to her music if you don't like her. What's the point of this?

Goingtobeawesome Sun 20-Aug-17 07:20:49

I think it's funny that some brands have pulled their adverts from here as they don't like the bad language grin.

Blottie Sun 20-Aug-17 07:37:06

Why don't you just install an adblocker? hmm I don't have any adverts on my mn.

Notagainmun Sun 20-Aug-17 07:37:28

I find her dull and boring

GandolfBold Sun 20-Aug-17 07:41:37

I thought this thread would be about the odd picture on the advert.

She looks a bit confused.

desertmum Sun 20-Aug-17 07:43:41

She was on the Radio 4 Saturday morning chat show a few weeks ago and was actually articulate and interesting to listen to. She has had a varied career and at least gives it a go. It's not an album I would buy, but I don't begrudge her for trying. Have to admit I've not actually noticed the ad.

Cailleach666 Sun 20-Aug-17 07:45:05

Being articulate doesn't make you a good singer.

My OH is very articulate and tone deaf.

BonnesVacances Sun 20-Aug-17 07:48:25

YANBU. She's also a terrible advert for ME and talks shite about it. angry

Uokbing Sun 20-Aug-17 07:49:25

Aw, I've heard she speaks.highly of you OP.

footballmum Sun 20-Aug-17 07:51:32

Have you noticed since her comeback she bears a striking resemblance to Arlene Phillips?!
