Oh yes the incidents very much were criticised when they first happened - I remember as much (while I joined fairly recently I’d been a reader/lurker a lot longer).
But much of that criticism was a while in the past and certainly in recent years it seemed to have been forgiven and forgotten on here and the view of her on here if anything seemed rather positive and sometimes endearing 'You know what Kay's like' type posts - though the significant fall in gaffes by her has helped (there was a period where Kay’s Afternoon Live was worth watching mainly to see what on earth Kay would say or do next)
I was just rather surprised members seemed rather annoyed about Kay Burley here when in the past she’s done far worse that has been forgiven and forgotten. My posts aren't meant as a criticism of her either - she's marmite but her being controversial is nothing new and in fact the empty chairing was pretty tame by Kay's previous standards.
Have to say I did always prefer when Lorna Dunkley or Anna Jones covered for Kay as both were/are outstanding presenters and were hugely underrated by Sky around then.
