There was a recent thread on men we (lusted after) thought were quite nice and spoke well.

Taking an opposite tack I wonder which women GN’s dislike? Recent threads have mentioned Susan Calman, Tess Daly and the ever-unpopular Amanda Holden.

For some reason I can’t fathom I’m not keen on Nikki Chapman and Julia Bradbury should just keep on walking, as far as I’m concerned. 🤪

I am not in the majority I’m sure. but I can’t watch Joanna Lumley. I don’t know why she just irritate yes me.

Galaxy Sat 24-Oct-20 13:29:55

I like amanda Holden. I find some of the things said about her really unpleasant.

Spangler Sat 24-Oct-20 13:33:06

That squeaky voice blonde woman that shows couples around prospective holiday home on the Costa Paquette.

Interesting thought, we had a thread on men to lust after. Let's start one on women we dislike.

I listened to a radio programme last night, presented by someone called Kirsty Logan. Despite being interested in the subject, I was close to turning it off several times because her silly little-girl voice irritated me so much.

PS. ginny, you are not alone!

The woman on the One Show - nails down a blackboard - probably a nice lady but the noise she makes OY!

BlueBelle Sat 24-Oct-20 13:53:46

ginny I m with you all the way Joanna Lumley really gets on my whatsits it’s that breathy voice another one whose voice is a complete turn off is Rula Lenski I m not at all keen on Amanda Holden seems very into herself and Carol Vordeman and her ever increasing baby face and the funeral adverts are a real yucky turn off
Teetime her too I don’t watch it because she grates on me
However I love down to earth women like Judy Dench and Dawn French (when she’s herself) I used to like Jenny eclair before she started doing those awful adverts

dragonfly46 Sat 24-Oct-20 13:56:31

I love Jenny Eclair and especially the books she writes. Sorry find it difficult to be negative about anyone at the moment.

That was my first thought too.

lemongrove Sat 24-Oct-20 14:01:48

I haven’t heard or seen anything of Jenny Eclair for years.
Am not a fan of Joanna Lumley either and even less of Judi Dench.
Can’t think of anyone else though ( more men annoy me than women)😁

If ever there was someone who could make my ears turn into r. soles, and crap on my favourite shirt, it would have to be: Zoe Ball.

Galaxy Sat 24-Oct-20 14:09:01

Yep my first thought too it's why I didnt do what I was told grin

Georgesgran Sat 24-Oct-20 14:10:18

Sorry if I’ve offended you Iam64 and Doodledog - perhaps I shouldn’t have used ‘dislike’. It’s a light hearted thread about women who get on our ‘pips’ for whatever reason.
Maybe another thread of women we admire??

Namsnanny Sat 24-Oct-20 14:10:43

Agree with you BlueBell + unfortunately Bethany Hughes has joined my list, as I used to like her.
Her breathy Nigella type seduction of the camera went into overdrive in her last series.
Which saw her rolling around the deck of a felluca in a bathing costume.
Made me squirm, and feel embarrassed for the men on board.
Really put the nail in the coffin for me.

Charleygirl5 Sat 24-Oct-20 14:14:55

I cannot stand Joanna Lumley- especially her voice. As for Claudia Winkleman, I turn down the sound when she is displaying the hair adverts and usually need several cups of coffee when she is on Strictly.

I do not mind Amanda Holden but cannot stand the woman on that show with herself, David Walliams and I have forgotten the other man's name.

What a bloody unpleasant thread - I’m off

Ilovecheese Sat 24-Oct-20 14:25:47

I am with you suziewoozie a really unpleasant idea whether 'lighthearted' or not.

Galaxy Sat 24-Oct-20 14:31:24

Replace the word woman in this thread with any other group and then imagine how that would be.

lemongrove Sat 24-Oct-20 14:36:20

Don’t worry Georgesgran I think most posters recognised it for a lighthearted thread, in fact not all that long ago there was s similar thread that detailed all the presenters and celebs that got on our collective wicks.😄
I had forgotten ( how?!) Claudia Winkleman and how she acts up on Strictly, cringeworthy.

BlueBelle Sat 24-Oct-20 14:50:08

It’s just a blooming laugh we can have one about men too Plenty of them get up my nose shall we make it sex neutral
I don’t know who Bethany Hughes is I ll tell you who most of may not like but I do a lot and that’s Stacey Dooley I know she’s marmite but I think she’s a good presenter of controversial topics

BlueBelle Sat 24-Oct-20 14:55:06

Men I don’t tolerate well are Keith Lemon, Alan Carr, Matt Lucas and Jonathon Ross There we are we ve levelled it out now

Oopsminty Sat 24-Oct-20 15:00:27

Well I love Amanda Holden. I have read so much nastiness about the woman, not only on here but other sites.

No idea why.

So I'll just say I like Amanda Holden

I think it would be a good idea to see women we actually like as well

kircubbin2000 Sat 24-Oct-20 15:04:30

Not keen on Holly Willoughby, Clare Balding, Michaela Coel and can't stand Mary Beard.

You forgot Jeremy Clarkson, Chris Evans and that bloke who fronts Wheeler Dealers.
