  • I Canít bloody stand him/her

    Who on Tv in the past could You not abide on the TV?
    for me for some reason , I never liked Ken Goodwin but not enough to switch off . The button was pressed however whenever Michael Barrymore appeared .
    Mum couldnít stand Peter Cook and Dudley Moore .

    what made you or your folks reach for the button?

      Re: I Canít bloody stand him/her

      Back in the 1980s, to most people it was obvious ones such as Jeremy Beadle, Rod Hull or Noel Edmonds, but I think that it was a bit like the following:

      1) Most actors who have appeared in soap operas - I mean, I know it is like life insurance to an actor, but why don't they use their talents in other ways?

      2) Any female celebrity who has done "modelling" or has appeared on Reality TV - far too many to mention, really.

      3) Regional newsreaders who tell us that someone has been murdered not a million miles away from where I live - I cannot thank Sky Digital enough that I can watch regional news programmes such as South Today which are nowhere near the East Midlands.

      4) Children's TV presenters who seemed to be candidates for being sectioned under the Mental Health Act 1983 - when was the last time that a children's TV presenter wore a suit and tie?

      There are others...
      Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

        My Dad could never stomach Jim Davidson.

        Oddly my Dad used to like Noel Edmonds in his Radio 1 and Swap Shop era, but thought he let his ego get the better of him from the Late Late Breakfast Show onwards.

                  I wouldn't have gone that far, but I can understand what you are saying.

                  There is a reason why I never watched BBC Three - it's because every person who appears in every programme on that channel would also be on this list!

                    Davidson was a poor replacement for Brucie the Generation Game - I just about stomach him on Big Break, but I hated the way that he behaved towards the female contestants on the show.

                    I was surprised that he wasn't banned from TV altogether after doing his Chalky act in the late 1970s and early 1980s - you should see a YT clip of him on Des O'Connor Tonight which made jokes that would not be compatible in a modern world.

                      Most celebrities have eccentric traits which have helped them to become unique as well as famous - most of them would never resemble someone who generally walks down the street every day.

                      And most of them would be candidates for this list as well.

                        i suppose one would be mary whitehouse.

                        She wanted to have things banned.
                        I even remember her complaining about a dr who story think it was deadly assassin.
                        Sheprob had good intentions tho.

                          A.k.a. the road to h*ll.

                          There've been so many characters on Coronation Street over the years I could not stand it's a wonder I will even still watch it sometimes. Right now there's a character named Mary who has these long-winded daft stories about her past, that are supposed to be amusing, but usually aren't. It comes across so clumsy and unbelievable really!

                          I used to call the supermarket manager Reg Holdswhatever (boss of Curly Watts) a turtle man with no shell. I literally cringed when he would come on.

                          I try not to hold it against the actors but it probably is at least partly their fault!

                          I found Hyacinth Bucket on Keeping Up Appearances sometimes more annoying than worth it, but there were some fantastically funny episodes too I have to admit!

                            In general, soap operas are programmes that I could not stand, but when it came to Coronation Street I never liked the 1990s phase of Rovers Return barmaids dressing like prostitutes (Liz McDonald, Raquel, Tina Fowler, Sam Failsworth, etc).

                            Reg Holdsworth is like a poor man's Christopher Biggins.
