This is so funny!
I'm also on a foody forum - there's a thread on there at the moment on what people find annoying about tv chefs - I think I must be really easy going - I just watch and accept people as they are, all different, all with their idiosyncrasies that make them human and interesting.
I would hate it if all tv presenters, be they gardeners, chefs or even Top Gear presenters, adopted some approved middle of the road innocuous corporate style of presenting. It would be the modern equivalent of the received pronunciation that used to prevail on BBC TV back in the 50s and 60s. Heaven forfend!!!
