The most irritating haircut on TV! BBC sewing show viewers get snippy over Claudia Winkleman's HUGE fringe




No fringe benefits: Claudia Winkleman

Every now and then a TV presenter
comes along who is so irritating that, instead of just switching off,
you find yourself compelled to watch.


Over the years, I’ve done this with Lorraine Kelly, Natasha Kaplinsky and Davina McCall.

Now
there’s a new contender raising my hackles: it’s Claudia Winkleman,
presenter of new BBC series The Great British Sewing Bee.


Or,
to be precise, it’s her haircut. Seemingly modelled on Cousin It from
the Addams Family, Claudia’s trademark hairstyle is a long, heavy fringe
that she can’t see out from.


Watching
her squint at the camera through that curtain of hair is simply
excruciating. And I’m not alone in  my irritation – Twitter has been 
ablaze with comments.


‘I
predict by end of series someone is going to take a pair of fabric
scissors to Ms Winkleman’s fringe,’ wrote one viewer. ‘Trim it! Please!
Anyone?’


Another begged: ‘Claudia Winkleman – CUT YOUR FRINGE! (Does it bug the hell out of anyone else?!)’ 

And yet another wrote: ‘Claudia Winkleman’s fringe really annoys me.  How does that woman see past all  that hair?’

There’s even a Twitter account dedicated to Claudia’s fringe.

Sewing
Bee was viewed by an average audience of 2.57million on Tuesday, up
from the 2.56million who watched the first episode last week.


But
while it is wonderful to finally have a primetime presenter who isn’t
an identikit vacuous blonde, I’ve often wondered what horrors she may be
seeking to hide beneath all that hair.


Since
2004 the fringe has grown about half a centimetre a year. At this rate
it will be down to her nostrils by the time she hits 50.





Claudia, who’s 41, insists she
wears her fringe long to hide the signs of ageing. ‘My forehead is
covered in a 100 little lines and a fringe is the easiest way to cover
them,’ she once said.


In
the hairdressing industry a long fringe is often called ‘poor man’s
Botox’ since it covers a wrinkly forehead. But when you’re a loaded TV
presenter married to a successful film producer why settle for the poor
man’s version?


After all, as our photos below show
(created with a bit of computer trickery), it’s hardly a flattering
style, making the most glamorous women – from the Duchess of Cambridge
to Jennifer Aniston – look like old ladies peering for the number on the
front of a bus.

In addition to that hairdo
Claudia also likes to sport heavy eyeliner, pale lipstick and lashings
of fake tan. The fringe, along with the squinting, slouching and
stomping, is all part of the eccentric, bumbling act that she has
perfected during her rise from late-night presenter on lesser-watched
channels to mainstream host.


Her
presenting style is a cross between Liz Hurley’s posh ‘golly gosh,
goodie gumdrops’ gushiness and Miranda Hart’s self-deprecating
clumsiness.


She has a habit
of standing  with her toes turned in and holding her dress at the side
like a  five-year-old learning to curtsey, while the slightest thing
makes  her cover her mouth and collapse in fits of giggles.


She
regularly describes herself  as lazy, hopeless, chaotic and 
disorganised and never misses an opportunity to say that TV presenting
is easy peasy and that any idiot could do it.


But
the fact is that, as the daughter of former Fleet Street editor Eve
Pollard and publisher Barry Winkleman, Claudia, a privately educated
Cambridge graduate, is anything but the ditzy clot she’d have us
believe.


With two more episodes of the Great British Sewing Bee to go, I know I will be tuning in.

Not
because I care how their trouser suit challenge pans out, but because
I’m just hoping that one of the contestants will grab her scissors and
do what the 2.5million people at home would love to do – cut that fringe
off.
