watching chef trials
she sounds so condescending and sometimes calling someone darling is clearly passive aggressive

She is horrendous I agree. Shockingly superior and rude.

Oh I am so glad Its not just me!!

After watching anything with her in DP and I spend ages calling everyone darling in a condescending manner grin

Just finished punching myself in the face as I call everyone darling too.

I don't think it passive aggressive but I do reserve a special darling for people who are not deserving of my nice darlings. It leaves the recipient in no doubt that I think they are an arse.

Alex Polizzi can do no wrong for me, darling.

Sorry OP grin

stop it now sheldon...darling

I'm sorry for spouting darlings ggirl

I can't help but like her. I thought she was a joy in the travel series she presented about Italy.

My special darlings are not passive anything and I really don't think that Ms P would be one to mince her words either. My darlings come from an inability to remember names. My grandma also called everyone darling but I suspect she did that because she was just lovely and not a forgetful old bat like me.

I love her.

I really like her blush she seems really genuine!

I dont object to a good Darling occasionally...

But hers are passive aggressive. She does the same thing Kirsty and Phil do- which is basically 'agree with me or I will roll my eyes to camera and treat you like an utter idiot'

What happened to the Irish guy? Why have they rejigged the finalists?

I dislike the eye rolling when someone disagrees with her. Her hair annoys me. She inows what she is talking about however.!

HumphreyCobbler Fri 19-Jun-15 21:46:20

I love her. She is brilliant and so is her hair.

I love her and that bloody gorgeous red leather bag she used to take everywhere.

I think she's great.

That chef show is a crock though.

Are you talking about that show that was on last night?
I know that curly haired chef man! Took me aaaaaaaages to realise that I knew him from not off the TV, but actual real life grin

I love her! She can call me darling anytime. Very clever and warm woman.

ShelaghTurner Sat 20-Jun-15 11:05:14

I love her too. She can darling all she likes.

Davros Sat 20-Jun-15 12:36:50

I love her too but hate her saying darling all the time. It's an affectation. Sir Dickie Attenborough used to do it and he said It was because he couldn't remember people's names
