    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 .

    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...

    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.
