I cant figure this one out! DD loves her and thinks shes lovely. Her pretend squeeky chipmunk voice REALLY grates on me along with her over exagerated smile when she sticks her neck out a mile but on the other hand shes very enthusiatsic and not wooden like other preenters! What do you all think hmm?!

Well, I think she's a cutie.

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. And what's with her enormous clompy shoes?

Ineedmorechocolatenow Wed 18-Aug-10 14:25:00

I'd kick her off a cliff.....

Used to loathe her until I met her in person. Without that put on voice she's lovely.

UnquietDad Wed 18-Aug-10 15:48:19

Why do you all hate her so much?

There are far worse women I'd never give TV-room to. I'd quite happily see Sarah Jessica Whatsit slapped into submission with one of her fifteen million stupid pairs of designer shoes, for example, while Kate Silverton is an utter cow and Myleene Klaas is a waste of space.

S-J Honeybunch is quite inoffensive.

Ineedmorechocolatenow Wed 18-Aug-10 16:15:44

What, even that horrendous voice.....?


midnightexpress Wed 18-Aug-10 18:55:34

S-J Honeybunch, UQD, is a simpering eejit. She does that stupid voice and is so little miss perfect. Yeuch.

Shaz10 Wed 18-Aug-10 18:56:42

I just wish her smile would reach her eyes.

loujay Wed 18-Aug-10 18:58:01

Loathe..............nuff said!!

TwasEverThus Wed 18-Aug-10 19:08:44

She's in panto in Guildford this Christmas I'm not going for the first time in YEARS.

Ineedmorechocolatenow Wed 18-Aug-10 19:44:21

God I live in Guildford.... the thought of her chipmunk voice and her dead eyes being so near to me..... eeeeerugh

SunnyDays06 Wed 18-Aug-10 20:34:26

Oh god, is she still knocking about?
Loathe. Definitely.
Why does she think its necessary to ape the mannerisms of a 6 year old?
I'll bet she'd be a decent kids presenter if she just stopped trying to be a child in a womans body.
It creeps me out and makes me want to punch her in equal measure.

Adair Wed 18-Aug-10 20:40:01

Ooh, UQD you want to watch her on Mighty Mites! Climbing, with a special harness... dh was most put out he missed it. FWIW I agree with you and all your annoying tv people too (do you also have irrational dislike of Nicole Kidman? confused), but then I am a sucker for clowning and slapstick-style gurning so she had me playing the piano with Justin on Higgledy Piggledy House.

Eglu Wed 18-Aug-10 20:44:46

Loathe. Totally annoying

UnquietDad Wed 18-Aug-10 20:46:04

Well, look, I'm not going to the wall for her. It's not like she is The Divine Harding, or even anywhere on the List... I just think she is quite sweet!

Greensleeves Wed 18-Aug-10 20:53:16

I find her irritating in a posturing infantile way

there is something in me that just reacts viscerally to a grown woman prissing and simpering about like a four year old - she is clearly NOT a good feminist

although I would think some of the hostility towards her stems from the knowledge that half the nation's fathers are creaming their shorts at the mere mention of her, even generally sensible types like UQD wink

UnquietDad Wed 18-Aug-10 20:58:32

I do no such thing! I just think she is... sweet. She doesn't really pass the Filth Test for me.

Adair Wed 18-Aug-10 20:58:53

When does she simper about? I just don't see it (apart from as that stupid Zingzilla). Mind you, my only real experience of her are Higgledy house and one episode of mighty mites - she was alright...
ohhh just remembered , didn't she use to present Tikkabilla? but they were ALL terrible on that - you couldn't single her out for OTT Children's Telly Presenter behaviour there.

(not sure why I am defending her so much... but it's not her fault if she is small and has a high voice)

MollieO Wed 18-Aug-10 21:00:32

UQD is it simply because she is blonde and her name is 'Sarah'? Hmm I wonder who that reminds you of/ grin

Raahh Wed 18-Aug-10 21:07:22

Why is she dressed as a wannabe Sportacus in Mighty Mites?- and I bet all the real action is done with body doubles. She may chip a nail.

She reminds me of Bonnie Langford. That, in itself, is enough to make me dislike her.

I would like to see S-J, and the cast of 'Grandpa in my Pocket ' (Mr Bolam aside), cast away to sea. Along with any other stage school happy types. Like the entire Green balloon club. And the dog.

I am too pregnant to tolerate happy people. grin

Ineedmorechocolatenow Thu 19-Aug-10 07:57:03

Oh, I agree Raah, I'd kick them all off a cliff....

OneTwoBuckleMyShoe Thu 19-Aug-10 09:45:14

Why does the Mighty Mites sign resemble the Strepsils one? Are the sponsored by them?

I am in the loathe camp, it's the monotone high pitched simpering and is it just me or does she look old on MM these days?

girtlush Thu 19-Aug-10 09:58:40

Is she sleeping with Justin?!

Very annoying. Didn't realise she was still on the telly what a shame!!!
