When children's TV presenters go bad....

I saw a cover for a mag ages ago (Zoo? or something?) where they were featuring the 'sexy kids tv stars' with very few clothes - just wondered what other people think about this? I think Chris Jarvis from CBeebies is drop dead gorgeous but would we see him half naked in some women's magazine???

I think it highly unlikely that Chris would be making such an appearance in a magazine for the pleasure of ladies. Sadly. Have you never noticed his absolute glee when ever a show-tune style number is called for on Cbeebies?

I was under that impression too!

I saw the wonderful Legally Blonde the other night on tv. the clincher for the (dumb blonde) would-be lawyer is that one of the witnesses in a case knew her shoes were last season's Prada therefore, he must be gay...

he also willingly dressed in a brown bodywarmer with orange piping for his role as Mr Mopple in .. oh god what was it called, the one with the face on the front of the house .... anyway how many more signs do you need?

All those who love stories!!!!!!!


bundle · 28/09/2004 16:09

melsmum, suze - it's the bloomin arms of that demonic looking bookcase...every child's (and grown up's) nightmare


24HrsNotEnough · 28/09/2004 16:11

Just re-read my post and, after editing, it doesn't say what I wanted it to say!!!

I originally meant, how appropriate do you think it is that female kids tv presenters get their kit off to pose in mags...

I know what you mean about Mr Jarvis, but when he's that gorgeous who cares!

i think the cat is creepier than the bookcase - its the voice. and i just dont get the chris jarvis thing - hes too skinny and boyish for me - not man enough. hes defo gay though so i dont think any of us stand a chance


suzywong · 28/09/2004 16:14

well I don't think it's appropriate at all

It's just blatant career-furthering by the presenters who clearly aren't in it for the long haul.

Never happened in Valerie Singleton's day

even that one on magpie (?susan stranks) used to cover up. nowadays if i flick over channels to cbbc rather than cbeebies, you see what can only be described as chicks with bra straps showing/pierced bellybuttons displayed and far too much make up. harumph.

omg you're right skate it was step inside!!!
