To find Claudia Winkelman the most irritating woman on TV?

In 1963 I looked just like Claudia Winkelman - of course I was only 17 at the time! Why does a grown woman with children want to go round looking like an overgrown schoolgirl in a little Dollyrocker dress? Why has no one taken a pair of scissors to that dreadful fringe that she peers through. Why has no one told her that black eyes and white lips hasn't been a good look for 45 years? And WHY does she have to ruin perfectly good programmes with her inane remarks and giggles. I used to love the BBC's film programme - I even managed to put up with Jonathan Ross presenting it- but I only managed half an hour when she took over and I had to switch off before I threw something through the screen. I record the Strictly results show so I can fast forward through her bits and the Strictly- it takes two show is an obvious non starter. angry

Can`t stand either Susanna Reid or simpering Louise Minchin. My favourite lady in the mornings was Sian Williams, but she`s not on there now. I really like Bill Turnbull.

Anybody else noticed that since the advent of Kate Middleton blondes are disappearing from our screens from weather girls on!

Deeda Susannah Reid is the one paired with Bill Turnbull on Breakfast these days. She does lots of hand clasping, thigh slapping and, when given half a chance, singing.

specki4eyes Apart from the egregious Natasha Kaplinsky who, for all I know, might now be dead, Louise Minchin is the only newsreader I have seen who finds disasters, war and other catastrophes a reason to grin, twitch and wink.

No Nanban I hadn'. That's interesting. I'll watch out.
